Weaver Wind, Finalist in the Ocean Exchange Program: Watch the Video of our Presentation!

Last September, Weaver Wind's Weaver 5 wind turbine was chosen as one of the fifteen "top solution finalists" for the 2016 Ocean Exchange Award. More info may be found in the official press release.

The Ocean Exchange features solutions chosen from enterpreneurs around the globe with the ability to boost economic growth, reduce waste generation, and improve on sustainable practices and resource management.

Weaver Wind competed for one of two $100,000 awards from the program's award sponsors: Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. and Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics.

Although the turbine did not win the grand prize, we at Weaver WInd are extremely happy to have been chosen and being able to participate in such a terrific experience, competing alongside potentially world-changing solutions to build a more sustainable planet.

Please watch the video of Weaver Wind's Founder, Art Weaver, introducing the Weaver 5 and what makes it so special and promising for the small wind energy industry.

Weaver Wind featured in the Cover of Home Power Magazine Issue 175

Weaver Wind Energy is proud to annouce that one of our projects has been featured in the cover of Home Power Magazine Issue 175 (September-October 2016)!

The project featured is the hybrid system installed by WWE in a 190 ace farmhouse close to Ithaca, New York. This system is able to cover the entire energy demand of William Basset's estate.

The hybrid system features a 11.4 kWp photovoltaic array, that, combined with a Weaver 5 wind turbine, is able to generate an estimated 1,161 kWh per month of energy (AC-side). Energy is stored in a 15.4kWh Lithium-Ion battery bank, and powers not only the Basset residence and farmhouse, but also William Basset's own car: a 2013 Nissan Leaf! The proud owner of the system is now 100% independent from the grid, using a combination of multiple sources of generation, energy storage, clever management and sustainable transportation.

Weaver Wind Energy not only supplied and commissioned the wind system, but also performed the overall design and engineering of the entire project.

We kindly invite you to read the entirety of the article in this month's issue of Home Power Magazine, as it features a highly detailed spread on the technical aspects of the system, the benefits and motivations for it's realization and serves as a showcase and statement of Weaver Wind's commitment to sustainable living and affordable renewable energy.
