Working for a company that is on the front line of innovation is thrilling.  Add to that the sense of urgency around developing new paths to power generation for our society and I'm excited to come to work everyday. 
-Elliott Ryan, WWE employee


My family has lived off-grid with wind and solar PV for nearly 20 years. I came to Weaver Wind because of my commitment to a 100% renewable energy world and my knowledge of wind’s key role in that transition. I value almost beyond words Weaver Wind's innovation, integrity, and leadership.
-Suzanne McMannis, WWE employee since 2014


History of WEAVER WIND ENERGY

In 2001, a physicist, working at Cornell University, takes to heart an analysis written by Nobel laureate scientists regarding our collision course with the natural world. Company founder, Dr. Art Weaver, reads the World Scientists’ Warning to Humanity (1992) and decides to change his life, becoming an entrepreneur and installer of small scale renewable energy systems. Solar came first. It worked great, most everywhere, and most of the time. Then came wind. It had problems. Two possibilities suggested themselves: stop installing small wind turbines or build better ones. Art chose the latter.

Weaver Wind Energy exists because its founder, Art Weaver and everyone who works here, believes that there is an unfulfilled need for small wind turbines that hold up over time with minimal maintenance.  The core motivation for the company is to design the world's most reliable and intelligent small wind turbines.  It's taken us over 5 years to develop our first product: the Weaver 5.

The Weaver 5 wind system is the result of over five years of R & D work supported by private funding as well as generous support from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA). The wealth of knowledge gained during the design process for the W5 and the positive results from our innovations has lead us to design a W2 (2kW) and W15 (15kW) machine.  The W2 is in it's finishing phase and we are now taking orders for sale on these machines.  The W15 is in the earlier design phase and will be available in 2019.
