Primo Wind is a designer/manufacturer of hybrid wind/solar solutions for power deprived areas. Starting out solely as a wind turbine manufacturer, they have three patents for their turbine design that can produce more electricity at lower wind speeds. With hands-on experience in the field and working through diverse use-cases, they recognized a strong need to incorporate other technologies in order to provide a robust system used for critical power needs. The EnergiPlant, their cornerstone product, is a reliable data and security platform that is currently being tested for use as a power source for 5G cellular connectivity that helps enable connected and autonomous vehicles at the Smart Transportation Innovation Program (STIP) testbed at UCSD
