Imagine a world where there is no bill for electricity.
Instead a fin dips water or a wing tips wind to turn the earth's natural currents into power to pump water and provide electricity for your home.

What it Takes to Make It
To make it in the world of renewable energy technology, it isn't just about hard work, engineering design, and testing the prototypes you create. It's also about protecting your idea, your business, and securing investment.
In August of last year Pterofin filed an application for a non-provisional patent and qualified for a green fast-track patent under President Obama's American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Pterofin's patent is expected in 2013. And this month, Pterofin took another step forward to secure its business future.
Pterofin is now officially incorporated which provides the company with financial and legal protections to enter a new phase of growth. The journey to success and design manufacture is that much closer.
Are you with us?
Pterofin is ramping up for the Northwest Regional Finals of the Clean Tech Open taking place this October. For the taking is $250K, and the Pterofin team is focused and determined.
Pterofin is also at a critical crossroad, requiring us to reach out and facilitate the investment required to continue pursuit of a patent.
Pterofin's goal is to raise $200K by September. This fundraising will secure the software we need to validate the technology's design in addition to payment to lawyers pushing our patent paperwork through the US Patent Office.
Wally, CEO of Pterofin, spent this summer touring the Pacific NW and California, meeting with Hong Kong Trade Groups, US trade leaders, and National Laboratories. He is exploring opportunity in Asia and in touch with many representatives that can protect a venture into global markets.
Clinton, COO of Pterofin, is developing potential partnerships with distribution leaders in Africa, a continent with strong appetite for energy.
Latest in Pterofin design
Since testing the Pterofin prototype this past March at the Kirsten Wind Tunnel and Water Tunnel at University of Washington, the team has been fine-tuning and fast-tracking design validations, pushing the technology to the limit.
The Pterofin prototype is inspired by natural movements in the flapping of a bird's wing. The biomimicry evident in the design, takes a natural approach to water pump technology. Opportunities for deployment include regions of the world where the wind speed is low and water resources cannot be piped.
