Sauer Energy Moving to Camarillo, California (Ind. Report)
Sauer Energy,Helix Wind
Date: 2012-08-30
Sauer Energy Inc., developer of the WindCharger vertical-axis wind turbine, is moving its headquarters from Newbury Park to Camarillo, California. Details were not released on when the move would be finalized, but the company says the new headquarters is integral to the company's plans for growth in renewable-energy manufacturing and research and development. Dieter Sauer, CEO and president, said in a statement that the company looks forward to creating jobs in the county and ultimately bringing all manufacturing in-house.

Sauer Energy acquired Helix Wind Corp. in May and plans to offer the Helix pole-mounted, vertical-axis wind turbine systems soon. This month, Sauer Energy secured a $5 million equity line with St. George Investments LLC.

Sauer Energy Touts Community Wind Projects (Ind. Report)
Sauer Energy
Date: 2012-05-03
Home and enterprise scale vertical axis wind turbine (VAWT) systems developer Sauer Energy Inc. reports its development of Community Wind projects to generate energy from a strategically placed cluster of turbines in a low wind area while remaining close to an existing grid. Sauer Energy says it is developing economical ways to generate electricity on a larger scale and plans to provide a more compact and more affordable alternative to large turbines on a commercial scale, that can be privately owned and placed closer to the areas where more energy is consumed with less of a loss due to distance between the power producer and the grid. Private owners can benefit by utilizing the energy generated or by selling it to the utility company.

A Community Wind Project can be owned by an individual or a small local group and can contain a few units or a considerable number of units which can affect the amount of energy generated. The frequency of wind and wind speed will likewise help determine the ROI point. The 30% federal incentive in place now has no limit as to the number of turbines on one parcel of land; state and local incentives may vary. Therefore, the return on investment (ROI) will vary in correlation to all pertinent dynamics.

Sauer Reports on Recent Wind Tunnel Tests (Ind. Report)
Sauer Energy
Date: 2011-11-04
Home and enterprise scale vertical axis wind turbine (VAWT) systems developer Sauer Energy, Inc. has again taken its WindCharger™ to the University of Washington Aeronautical Laboratory in Seattle, Washington for wind tunnel testing. Test results have confirmed improved performance of the WindCharger ™, the company reports. Test results showed a tip speed efficiency of 76 percent at 10 mph wind speed. Conversion of torque versus mass has given the WindCharger™a leading edge, and no other turbine company asserts such efficient wind capture at low altitude. A higher rpm at lower wind speeds than earlier results was also documented.

Testing also revealed that minor enhancement modifications to the proprietary generator will significantly add efficiency to the WindCharger™. Those modification are now being made.

Sauer Energy plans to sustain its position in developing a more competitive edge by becoming the residential company that sets the standard for rooftop wind energy turbines.(Source: Sauer Energy, November, 3, 2011) Contact: Dieter Sauer, President and CEO, Sauer Energy, (888) 829-8748, www.SauerEnergy.com

Sauer Energy to Commence Production (Ind. Report)
Sauer Energy
Date: 2011-08-25
Vertical axis wind turbine (VAWT) systems developer Sauer Energy Inc. announced that commercial production of the WindCharger™ is slated to commence in November, 2011. Sauer first unveiled its WindCharger™ prototype in May, at the WindPower 2011 Conference and Exhibition. In just over 4 years, Sauer Energy's vision of a small vertical axis wind turbine for residential and enterprise applications has become a reality. As Sauer Energy enters into the sales phase, the company will reinvest revenues to develop other applications for its technology. Through the course of manufacturing and marketing of the WindCharger™ Sauer Energy seeks to establish a leadership position in residential roof-mountable wind energy capture, due to its extremely unique and efficient features.

Sauer Energy test results solidify production plans (Ind. Report)
Sauer Energy
Date: 2011-05-04
Home and enterprise scale vertical axis wind turbine (VAWT) systems developer Sauer Energy, Inc announces the successful wind tunnel test results from the University of Washington Aeronautical Laboratory (UWAL), Seattle, Washington. Various models and configurations of the company's vertical axis turbine were tested and evaluated. Data was extracted and the WindCharger model was validated with regard to design and efficiency.

Sauer Energy's multi-patented WindCharger turbine technology is designed with concave and convex blades and air disrupters on the drag side to reduce friction, and inside air strakes that lead to air jets for air displacement. Outside torque converters increase the drag for more torque and increase RPMs.

The WindCharger design has responded to the consumer demand for placing of the turbine on the roofs of homes and commercial buildings, or they can be stand-alone, where the conventional horizontal axis wind turbine (HAWT) designs are not applicable or practical. This allows SEI to meet the energy demand and become a real-world solution. With its revolutionary design and multiple features, the WindCharger is able to effectively capture and utilize low wind, while minimizing noise, with virtually no vibration and staying bird-friendly.

The WindChargers will be sold in kits which will include the turbine, generator, inverter and mounts. The consumer will need licensed professionals for installation and electrical grid tie-in.
