the first windspire vertical wind axis turbine

Mariah Power, the manufacturer of a unique vertical axis wind turbines called the Windspire is celebrating their first verticle axis wind turbine product to be rolled off the production line at their newly retrofitted manufacturing plant in Manistee, Michigan. The Windspire is completely manufactured in the USA and can be applied to homes, businesses and governments who want to harness the power of the wind. This is a historic event for Michigan, since the state once a leader in manufacturing sector due to the robust US automobile industry which now struggling due to the Big Three automakers in financial trouble. Mariah Power is changing the game in Michigan by creating jobs and a product that will help America stay competitive. The milestone marks a period in which Mariah Power will be able to scale up their manufacturing operations and offer the lowest cost, ultra quiet, simple to install 1kW (kilowatt) wind turbine in the US market. What do you think about the Windspire? Do you think vertical axis wind turbines are a good...

wind turbines present at Obama’s inaugural

(Photo: Business Wire) The United States Botanic Garden a couple blocks away from today’s historic inaugural for quite some time have had two wind turbines installed, although today they got special attention from the president himself as he mentioned solar and wind power in his acceptance speech. Hopefully the millions of people who went to Capitol Hill for Obama’s inaugural noticed the Skystream 3.7 and Mariah Power’s Windspire small scale wind power systems. The Skystream 3.7 shown in the picture above is a horizontal axis wind generator which has a built in grid tie inverter. The generator makes most financial sense in regions which have at least 10MPH average wind speeds. The Skystream 3.7 also has the ability to wirelessely transmit inverter data which enables the owner to monitor the performace of their wind power system through their computer. (Photo: Business Wire) Mariah Power’s Windspire on the other hand is a vertical axis wind turbine is a complete 1.2 kW wind power “appliance”, which includes the turbine, generator, grid tie inverter, pole and stand, WiFi to monitor performance and a 5-year warranty. Even though this wind turbine looks really great, there is one drawback to this new style, it has limited initial test data, therefore customers are early adopters of vertical axis wind turbines. Hopefully Obama’s administration can secure the capital it needs to execute projects that support the development of a renewable energy market in America which will enable more homes and businesses across America to use the small scale wind power systems to contribute to the grid versus being a liability to it.
