Mobile phones have become such a staple in our lives that the thought of losing service is unbearable; hence the Helix Wind powered cell phone towers. Entering unreliable, expensive or nonexistent territories in the USA and Africa, the San Diego-based company will be introducing wind as an alternative energy source.

An ideal way to not only lower costs but to also establish service in some areas, the Helix Wind powered cell phone towers usher in a whole new future for the telecommunication sector. Hoping to have test sites installed in the US and West Africa by November, Helix Wind will deliver its first test turbines to Nigeria in late October. If these test sites are sucessful, hundreds of sites could pop up in a matter of a few years.
