About Us

We began operation as Locust USA in 2000, developing technology for numerous government agencies.

In 2011 new private investors recognized the exceptionality of the Locust Power engines and the abundance of potential applications. The investors also recognized the value of the uniquely experienced staff; a group of turbine industry veterans, many of whom had retired from their first careers, but welcomed an opportunity to follow up on ideas and visions they had fostered over their long careers with major aerospace firms.

With new hardware, new software, new equipment, and a new focus, our team used their experience, relationships with the finest specialty technical firms in the industry, and their insights to improve the design of our mini-micro turbines. Now called Locust Power Inc., the company has demonstrated working engine systems to the industry since 2012.
