FAQ's

You've got questions? We've got answers here-

 

"Volturnus" from Verterra Energy, Inc. is intelligent power. It uniquely harnesses the untapped energy of rivers to produce electricity efficiently and cost-effectively.

 

Our mission is to provide distributed, renewable energy where its most needed- in remote and developing regions. We believe the best way to help others is to give them the power to determine their own destiny.

 

Deployed in "V-Pods" of 5, Volturnus is purpose designed for rugged reliability in rivers.  It deflects debris in the water and prevents clogging and jamming;  ensuring optimal, around-the-clock, energy production for up to 40 average US households. Its simple and rugged components are also designed to be ultra-low maintenance, for years of reliable performance.

 

The low-profile, purpose-built design allows Volturnus to sit below the river's surface, keeping it out of sight for silent, seamless operation.

 

Volturnus is also environmentally sound and adaptable.  It is safe for aquatic life and can be used in heavily- populated urban environments, developing regions, or in remote areas with no existing infrastructure; providing a global reach.

 

It requires no damming or river diversion, and with its low profile, can quickly be deployed in shallow water close to the shore- where the power is needed.
