  • A passion for social responsibility and renewable energy inspired Ted to create a device that could make a real difference in the world. It wasn't enough for the Turbine to be just another underwater windmill; the design had to be revolutionary, elegant, and simple. He set out to create something that would capture people's imagination and transform the quality of life for those without access to electricity.
