New York, NY (PRWEB) September 14, 2010
Following in the stylish, silent footsteps of the successful launch of eddy, Urban Green Energy , the leading manufacturer of vertical axis wind turbines (VAWT) announced today the latest product in the catalog of alternative energy solutions - eddy GT.
A 1kW VAWT, eddy GT delivers energy security through a grid-tie inverter, but maintains the same key features as the original eddy, including a low start-up speed, whisper-quiet operation and a vertical axis design that means power can be generated regardless of the wind direction. Like eddy, eddy GT can be assembled in under an hour and be mounted on either a pole or a rooftop for safe, reliable energy.
“We were blown away by the response to our launch of eddy and couldn’t be happier to bring its older sibling, eddy GT, to a market that is eager for clean energy,” said Nick Blitterswyk, CEO of Urban Green Energy. “The time for wind power is now and the demand for a more-powerful, grid-tie version of eddy shows that alternative energy solutions are what consumers want.”
Designed and manufactured by Urban Green Energy, eddy GT is one more way that the power of wind is sweeping the globe. More powerful than the original eddy, eddy GT will lower the amount of energy the customer receives from the grid. The grid-tie technology means that on very blustery days, customers will actually be able to sell power back to their utility companies.
Like the rest of the Urban Green Energy line up, eddy GT qualifies for a 30% US federal rebate and may qualify for additional rebates and/or tax incentives on the state level. The investment in an eddy GT is also a sound one; the VAWT has a maximum safe wind speed of more than 120mph (55 m/s), and an engineered lifetime of 20 years.
Urban Green Energy has more credentials and more certifications than any other company in the vertical axis wind turbine industry. In fact, Urban Green Energy is the first company in the U.S. to receive certification for its turbines’ safety, power, 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 35 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 close to 200 distributors around the world, a staff of more than 100 employees and is poised to become the pre-eminent leader in the small wind energy arena.
