Harvest Energy Solutions, the Midwest’s Leading Wind and Solar Integrator, Granted Distribution Rights for Renewegy Wind Turbines
August 7, 2012 – Jackson, Michigan – Harvest Energy Solutions, the Midwest’s leading and fastest growing renewable energy product provider, today announced a partnership with Wisconsin-based Renewegy, Inc. Harvest Energy will be the key distributor of the Renewegy wind turbine focused on the agricultural market in the USA.
Wind energy is one of the fastest growing forms of renewable energy in the US, driven by state initiatives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and a commitment to ensure a greater percentage of the nation’s electricity supply will come from renewable energy sources. The market for wind turbines is expected to grow through rebate programs that can offset the costs for customers by as much as 50%.
Harvest has introduced a unique marketing and business model that addresses the desire of farmers, businesses, and residents to reduce and/or eliminate utility costs. Unlike most companies that specialize in just one product type, Harvest offers a complete line of wind and solar energy systems from 10kW and up. The Renewegy turbine was chosen by Harvest for its innovative and big-wind like design as well as the company’s outstanding commitment to service.
The Renewegy VP-20 is a horizontal axis wind turbine designed for a variety of uses including most agribusiness applications. Renewegy applies cutting edge technology to its turbines. The VP-20’s Variable Pitch (VP) control system, hydraulic tip-up tower, and internet monitoring are unique in the commercial wind turbine market. Taking inspiration from the automotive and marine industries, systems are designed with the highest quality and safety standards in mind. The unique hydraulic tip-up design of each turbine allows for quick and easy maintenance, maximizing “up time”. Businesses, residents, farms and schools around the world are currently using Renewegy turbines to generate clean energy.
“Given farmer’s desires to cut emissions and focus on renewable energy solutions, the US agricultural market is very important to us,” said Renewegy President & CEO Jeff Ehlers. “We are pleased to have found a partner specialized in this market that is not only a leader, but values innovation as much as we do.”
“Farmers in the USA are known for quickly adopting cutting-edge and innovative technologies,” said Mark Olinyk, CEO of Harvest Energy Solutions. “The Renewegy VP-20 is an advanced system and wonderful departure from typical small wind generators currently available, which offers our customers a unique way to reduce their energy usage, carbon footprint and become an independent power producer.”
Renewegy, Inc. is the developer of the innovative Renewegy VP-20 wind turbine. Made in the USA, Renewegy turbines are designed for use in urban, suburban, and agricultural settings. Using synergies from past experiences in aeronautical, automotive, and marine industries, Renewegy’s technology can help to make a positive impact in the areas of wind power and beyond.
