Recently Southwest Windpower announced the availability of the popular Skystream 3.7 wind turbine at select Home Depot stores. The move puts small wind within reach of more customers as the industry expands every year. Southwest will start the installation program in Texas, Nevada, Idaho, Utah, Wyoming, and California with additional states in the near future.
The much-anticipated Honeywell Wind Turbine from WindTronics officially launches today, one day prior to Earth Day. This is a small wind turbine that we’ve mentioned extensively – here’s a video of one spinning. The launch is supported by a global network of distributors, partners, and retailers ready to sell the unique turbine from a starting price of $5,795, plus installation.
The small wind market is doing well these days with lots of new companies popping up all the time. Since 2007, Urban Green Energy, one of these newish companies, has been expanding and growing — their vertical axis wind turbine (VAWT) has been installed in 48 countries. One of their most recent installations was broadcast to the world last month on ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition (pictured).
