The SolarMill hybrid energy system integrates solar panels and vertical axis wind turbines (VAWTs) into modular units that are low-cost, highly-efficient and suitable for rooftop or similar installations, according to the manufacturer.
Windstream also manufactures the MobileMill, a mobile version of the SolarMill, appropriately called the MobileMill, which is intended for first responders and emergency relief, and which can deploy a 4kW renewable energy system, complete with an 18 kWh battery array within minutes.

EWP designed, built, and tested a VAWT 50 kW “Sky Farm” for the JV while Siemens developed the generator and inverter system.
In addition to this JV, EWP has worked closely with companies like DuPont for coatings for the blades and with 3M for blade icing tests. EWP also has worked with SLIPS Technologies, a Harvard University spinoff technology company
The JV piloted the Sky Farm 50kW at Martha’s Vineyard Airport in Edgartown, Massachusetts where the turbine is tied into the area’s electric-power grid. It produces about 45,000 kWh of energy per year.

Chava Energy is in the experimental stage of developing breakthrough technologies to deliver new forms of energy that are inexhaustible, clean, inexpensive, and available to anyone, anywhere. These new energy technologies will dramatically improve our global economic outlook and minimize our environmental footprint. Chava Wind plans to launch their VAWTs in Japan which is incentivizing turbines up 20KW rated inverter capacity with a grid Feed-in-tariff at the equivalent of 58 US cents per kWh of energy.

Windstream's patented SolarMill® distributed energy technology consists of vertical zxis wind turbines (VAWT), solar panels and proprietary "smart" electronics. The energy generated by each SolarMill® can be used off grid with a storage system or inverted for use in grid-tied applications. Occupying the roof space about the size of a solar panel, each SolarMill® provides the highest energy density currently available in the renewable energy market. SolarMill® products are "Made In The U.S.A." and are available worldwide. (Source: Windstream, Sept. 8, 2014) Contact: Windstream Technologies Inc., Travis Campbell, COO, www.windstream-inc.com

The power production testing of the VisionAIR was performed in accordance with the IEC 61400-12 by the laboratory Intertek in their small wind test facility in upstate New York, USA. The testing confirmed that the turbine begins exporting power at wind speeds as low as 3.5 m/s [7 mph] and is twice as efficient as several of its competitors. This certification is in addition to the electrical safety and noise emission certifications the turbine has already received.

Sky Harvest has received written expressions of interest for the purchase of over 13,000 vertical axis turbines from parties in four different countries.Sky Harvest has also entered into discussions with additional parties with compatible technology regarding the potential joint venture development of additional wind turbine products.
In addition to planned manufacturing and sales activities, Sky Harvest will also focus on further turbine research and development in order to introduce new products for commercial use. The company expects that this may include grant or joint venture opportunities with government entities, universities, and private corporations.
In connection with the acquisition, Sky Harvest has incorporated a wholly-owned subsidiary under the name Sky Vertical Technologies Inc. ("Sky Vertical") that holds the assets and will undertake operations.

According to Korsair Holdings CEO Boris Rubizhevsky, "We see small wind and especially vertical wind turbines as the next wave of wind energy installations. Vertical wind turbines with direct drive generator offer needed flexibilities for smaller scale installations making such systems attractive from individual home owners to farmers, to small enterprises that wish to contribute to lowering carbon footprint as well as lower their own energy costs. The Canadian Company has created an efficient and profitable energy source that is completely environmentally friendly, with a wind turbine that can start with a slight breeze and operate in winds as low as 4 to 5 miles an hour." Rubizhevsky added, "We will now be able to offer several options to our potential customers, i.e. wind turbine only and a complete energy system that will also include our Lithium Ferro Phosphate batteries and controls. With the system starting price at under €10,000 and going up to over €50,000 we expect to reach €7.5million in sales over the next 12 months. Over the next several months Korsair expects to engage several established local distributors to help us with our sales efforts."

Constructed with mostly U.S.-made materials, the CSL -- home base for environmental education and research -- aims to achieve net-zero energy consumption with solar photovoltaics, geothermal wells and a vertical axis wind turbine, as well as passive cooling, heating and lighting methods. It will also save resources by treating and reusing all water captured on site.
Additionally, the CSL will interact with its environs as a vital part of daily operation, blurring the lines between the natural and built environments. And, as a global SITES™ pilot project, it will feature a restorative landscape with native plants and a demonstration green roof garden. Other site features include a lagoon, water distillation system, rain gardens, and constructed wetlands.

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.
