“We are pleased to be reporting significant progress with our initial European efforts, which are part of XZERES’ long-term plans to be a major, global player in the small wind energy industry,” stated Frank Greco, CEO. “We now have a local office, delivery logistics in place, CE Mark status, and sales people on-the-ground, in-country and are prepared to take advantage of the many lucrative markets that exist throughout Europe.”
First European Order Received: XZERES is also pleased to be announcing its first order, for multiple wind turbines, to be delivered into the U.K. market. “The U.K. market is very attractive and a key focus of ours due to its excellent wind resources throughout many parts of the country combined with one of the best feed-in-tariffs in the world,” commented Mr. Greco. “We have high expectations for this geographic area and are excited to be now operating and selling into this market.”
CE Mark Achieved: In support of the goal to rapidly expand sales into Europe, the company has now met and exceeded the CE Mark (Conformite Europeene) requirements, certifying that its product meet the health, safety and environmental requirements of the European Union, ensuring consumer and workplace safety. This allows the XZERES products to be marketed and sold throughout the EU community.
XZERES’ wholly-owned subsidiary, XZERES Wind Europe Ltd., is located in Dublin, Ireland.

XZERES Wind Corp designs, develops, manufactures and markets distributed generation, wind power systems for the small wind (2.5kW-100kW) market. Our grid connected and off grid wind turbines, which consist of our 2.5kW and 10kW devices and related equipment, are utilized for electrical power generation for applications and markets such as residential, micro-grid based rural electrification, agricultural, small business, rural electric utility systems, as well as other private, corporate infrastructure and government applications.
Our wind power systems are focused on distributed energy, where a specific machine’s energy output is largely or entirely used on-site where the equipment is installed, as well as grid connected applications. While many of our customers take advantage of their local net-metering rules within the United States and Feed In Tariffs that are often available in Europe and Internationally (to sell power back to the grid), our wind power systems are not dependent on transmission needs to carry the energy produced to another location.
