Nashville, TN (PRWEB) May 01, 2012
New Wind, LLC, of Nashville that specializes in small-wind vertical-axis wind turbines (VAWTs) and other sustainable energy products is expanding its dealership base, Stuart Wiston, president of the company said.
“The interest in our products along with the public understanding that small wind is a viable and affordable option is now requiring us to actively look for more dealers,” Wiston said. “While we have pretty good coverage in the Eastern part of the United States, we are looking to expand in the West and Pacific Northwest, Canada, as well as Central and South America.”
The company, he said, presently has more than 30 dealers, but that number isn’t sufficient to supply the various sectors the company serves. “We have more residents, businesses, municipalities, and government agencies looking towards wind and solar now and since our product is one of the lowest-profile, highest-producing small wind turbines available in the market today, we have to fill gaps in areas that are not getting sufficient coverage.”
Wiston said the VAWTs the company sells have many benefits over larger horizontal-axis wind turbines (HAWTs). “While higher is always better, our VAWTs don’t need the same height HAWTs typically need. Their slow rotation also means they are quieter which makes them very neighbor friendly.”
Market research, he said, has shown the conditions in Central and South America also makes those areas ideal for small wind. “Not only is the cost of electricity high in many of these areas, the grid can be undependable, unavailable, and there are many areas where wind or wind and solar would fit well.”
In the Unites States, Wiston added, there is a vacuum that needs to be filled. “We have several products that would be ideal in the more rural areas with limited grid access and as we can use wind or a combination of wind and solar with battery storage that could make the grid unnecessary,” he said. “We have a wind/solar hybrid light pole as well as a similar portable system that has a variety of applications from music festivals to military operations. We also have a portable system that provides remote security for environments ranging from cattle ranches to construction sites.”
Recently, the company, along with Exergonix and Syndicated Solar Inc., unveiled a Total Telecommunication Solution that will use wind, solar, and battery storage to help power telecommunication systems in remote and rural areas that will cut generator fuel costs by at least 50 percent, he said.
“We have a dealer conference scheduled for July here in Nashville,” he said. “We are looking for select, qualified companies who are interested in carrying our product and will provide hands-on experience and knowledge during the training.”
The need to expand comes shortly after the company’s announcement that New Wind, LLC received $1 million in venture capital funds. “This shows investor confidence in us and one of the keys to our success has been recruiting top-of-the-line partner dealers.”
New Wind’s VAWTS use advanced technology and offers the highest-performing generator in the VAWT sector of wind power that provides an affordable solution to today’s energy needs for residents, businesses, municipalities and other government agencies. Harnessing the power of the wind through state-of-the-art technology now makes it affordable, environmentally friendly, and gives owners a high rate of investment not only by energy savings, but through local, federal, and state financial incentives,” Wiston said.
