GET A PIECE OF FLOWER TURBINES
Technology being developed by Flower Turbines enables a new model in the small wind industry. Focused on creating beautiful, affordable, and efficient turbines for the urban/suburban market and tight spaces, we are paving the way for the future of distributed energy and providing investors with an equitable opportunity in the process. Our ‘Cluster Effect’ (whereby our turbines perform better when tightly packed together as opposed to the most common turbines which perform worse when tightly packed) gives us a key advantage to scaling wind farms and harnessing the electricity they produce.
The carefully crafted design of the Tulip is so aerodynamically efficient, it is actually able to take the wind entering the turbine, reverse its direction, and point toward the second blade at a higher speed than the initial wind outside. (Of course, much of the wind’s force is expended on the first blade, but the right amount of air space enables the remainder to operate more efficiently.)
The red, higher velocity areas on the side show how the cluster effect works--by driving wind tunnels into adjacent turbines.
Flower Turbines aims to address what we believe are five major problems preventing the small wind sector from reaching its potential, and becoming a sustainable trillion dollar industry:
The first and second are that low noise and high efficiency are hard for most small wind solutions to achieve simultaneously and, as a result, they are unusable in areas where people live and work.
The third is that they can’t be placed without interfering with each other’s wind flow.
The fourth is that our turbines start operating at lower speeds than others (0.7 meters per second, or 1.6 miles per hour, as opposed to most turbines, which, according to our research, start at 3 m/s), and current wind turbine electronics are not made to handle the low speeds.
And fifth, our research shows that standard turbines can pose a risk to birds.
Flower Turbines are uniquely designed to overcome the problems facing small wind technology with improvements that make them less turbulent, more efficient, and allow them to work together in ways previously thought impossible.
Our patented system utilizes a synergistic cluster effect, so that each turbine propels energy to neighboring turbines and enhances their performance by 20-50%. We hope to leverage this to fuel our growth and are currently negotiating a project of 90,000 turbines based on this competitive advantage.
We’ve also disrupted the market by implementing the kind of exquisitely elegant design that encourages people to embrace them as works of art. The advantage of our approach is that Flower Turbines provide a perfect solution for any area where space is limited and sustainable energy is needed such as close to people, buildings, and parking lots.
It also accompanies solar beautifully, because using both together means energy during more of a daily and seasonal cycle, thereby saving on costly battery storage.
An indication of the efficiency of our Flower Turbines is that they are able to begin generating electricity at a wind speed of just 0.7 m/s (industry standard is 3 m/s). This conclusion is based on testing data in a low wind environment.
If you were to place our turbines next to the average competitor with 3 m/s wind, the large model turbine will already be producing 30 or more watts of electricity as the competition is first beginning to rotate.
COMPARISON WITH SOLAR
We believe that solar and wind make a great combination and balance each other when the other is not so productive, and that microgrid projects can sometimes be cheaper, depending on the resources of sun and wind, when using wind plus solar plus fewer batteries than solar alone plus batteries, because you need a lot of extra solar to make up for a few stormy winter days in a row. In windy areas in higher latitudes, wind may be much better than solar:

In Flower Turbines’ decade of development, we have been the recipient of numerous honors. Since its last raise on StartEngine, the company has been able to proceed with setting up manufacturing operations in Texas, and expanded its sales of wind-powered electric bike charging stations. All while continuing to win awards that speak to the power of our technology.

Although the small turbines sector is projected to hit a CAGR of over 17% in the near future (source), Flower Turbines anticipates that its market-changing product will do even more to drive growth exponentially.
Bloomberg predicts that wind and solar will power half the world's grid by 2050 and receive $9 trillion of investment (source). We hope Flower Turbines will be part of that. Additionally, Flower Turbines has entered the exciting market of electric charging, one of the top trends in cleantech (source).
Flower Turbines believes in doing its part to save the planet, not by asking for subsidies, but by creating the technological improvements that will make its products useful choices. Our goal is to provide 5% of electric power in most major markets within the next 20 years – a significant objective, designed to have a significant impact.
Fulfilling our business plan requires an up-front investment, but we are confident that the quality of our products, coupled with a demand for more, will result in healthy growth once the world becomes acquainted with our initial installations.
Our first $1 million enabled Flower Turbines to expand patents and engineering and begin with manufacturing several sizes and versions, to expand its product line to the fast-growing segment of electric vehicle charging, and to develop a critical team mass in the European market. The second funding round allowed us to move into an upward sales trajectory and work on manufacturing. This third funding round enabled us to expand and develop a critical mass in the US market as we did in Europe. This round is aimed to bring us to profitability and manufacturing in the US and EU markets and help us initiate other market entries.
Building on what we have already achieved, Flower Turbines is excited for this round of fundraising to help us accelerate expansion, so that we can achieve our ultimate goal. Anyone can invest. Sign up to join us! Join the movement against climate change and for local, clean energy.

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.
With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.
At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.
Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.
StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.
For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.
For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.
Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.
Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.
Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
