Our Evolution

Wind + Solar Hybrid Nanogrids

Powered by Nature

While we started in wind and believe wind is a great power solution and can provide much more power than solar at certain wind speeds, the real truth is that for off-grid power charging batteries there is no better solution that wind and solar together.

Small Wind Challenge

Generating Power at Common Wind Speeds

Small wind is tough with small low energy generators that need to spin at very high RPMs to deliver any power. The nameplate power designation is usually the power generated at 24 or more miles per hour (which in fact very rarely occurs in most places) and that nameplate power doesn’t tell anything about how much power is produced at common wind speeds of 10-15 mph.

At Primo we have focused on making power available in that common wind speed range. We have a patented blade and rotor designed combined with modified generators to deliver power starting as low as 5 or 6 MPH. Then we continue to deliver power through a full wind range and at speeds of 600 RPMs and less.

our philosophy

Observe nature.

Design “AND” solutions.

Be resilient.

Resilient Solutions

100% Renewable
Hybrid Systems

While we started in wind and believe wind is a great power solution and can provide much more power than solar at certain wind speeds, the real truth is that for off-grid power charging batteries there is no better solution that wind and solar together. The power of solar is pretty well understood through the 4-6 peak sun hours during the day and wind can provide power day and night.

At Primo we design and manufacture 100% renewable hybrid wind, solar, and battery storage energy systems for the grid’s edge. We specialize in power systems for resource constrained areas with a small footprint and easily erected, moved, and serviced models for reliable and resilient energy needs.
