|I have been looking at small wind turbines via Flower Turbines as my next equity crowdfunding investment.|
Flower Turbines | StartEngine
They are in their third round of capital raises via StartEngine. This one is a Reg A which has higher reporting requirements as well higher dollar maximums for amount raised. I have been investing relatively small dollar amounts for 3 years. My record is spotty as best. However, being startups, you will definitely get some failures. I have been investing in Biotech for over 30 years as well and you get a few big winners, some moderate winners and fair share of losses. I suspect the same will be true in the equity crowdfunding space.
These are investments for the long haul and illiquid. They are not for someone with a trading perspective. Probably 5 years minimum.
Flower turbines seems to be more for residential and small company energy enhancements in areas that are windy. Their design is harmless ( so they claim) to wildlife and the turbines turn at lower wind speeds than traditional turbines. So far sales are low and mainly in Europe. This fund raising effort is their third and is supposed to ramp up sales and marketing efforts.
Also some engineering efforts underway to address problems with mounting on non flat roofs.
