New York (PRWEB) May 21, 2010
The small vertical axis wind turbine that is poised to change the landscape of wind power has its first home on a dedicated site, http://www.meeteddy.com. On the site, interested parties can learn about eddy’s powerful capabilities, including the capability to back up an existing solar power system, view images of eddy in action and learn how to order an eddy of their very own.
Designed and manufactured by Urban Green Energy, the leader in vertical axis wind turbines, eddy is whisper quiet, resembles a modern art sculpture and produces clean energy day or night, year after year. Those interested in adding eddy into their residence qualify for a 30% federal tax credit. Several states offer further incentives as well.
“Now is the perfect time to make the switch to wind power,” said Nick Blitterswyk, CEO of Urban Green Energy, the New York-based company that is among the leading providers of small turbines in the world. “Considering the rising cost of grid energy and the government incentives in place for renewable energy sources, consumers who opt for eddy can reap enormous savings over the lifetime of their homes. The 5-year financing in place makes eddy affordable for nearly all power needs.”
Eddy performs well in winds that change directions quickly, and when combined with the turbine’s low start-up speed, there’s even greater energy production, delivering a higher return on investment for the customer.
With a maximum safe wind speed of more than 120mph (55 m/s), and an engineered lifetime of 20 years, eddy lowers the amount of energy the customer receives from the grid and provides energy security, ensuring that when the power goes out the customer still has electricity for the most important devices in their home.
Urban Green Energy has more credentials and more certifications than any other company in the vertical axis turbine industry. In fact, Urban Green Energy is the first company in the U.S. to receive IEC certification for its turbines’ power, safety, and noise level.
UGE has designed and manufactured 600W, 1kW and 4kW vertical axis wind turbines, as well as wind/solar hybrid street lamps, and has customers in 25 countries around the world. UGE products have been installed across the continental U.S., as well as Hawaii, Alaska and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The company has 150 distributors around the world, a staff of 95 employees and is poised to become the pre-eminent leader in the small wind energy arena.
