Rooftop Wind Turbines Stand Up to Tropical Storm Don

Building Turbines, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: BLDW), a developer and manufacturer of commercial building rooftop mounted horizontal axis wind turbines, reported that their units installed in Corpus Christi, TX operated effortlessly in the gusty winds of Tropical Storm Don Friday evening.

‘This is exactly what our wind turbine units are designed for,’ said Greg Miller, Chief Business Development Officer, Building Turbines, Inc. The patented Building Turbines design captures the concentrated vortex formed as wind comes flowing over building’s windward parapet wall to produce electricity. During Tropical Storm ‘Don,’ which made landfall Friday evening, the storm lasted for several hours before fully dissipating early Saturday morning.

Building Turbines placed team members on site in Corpus Christi during the storm, and also monitored the wind turbine systems from their headquarters in Austin, TX via live data and video feeds. ‘We are anxious to verify the turbines real-world performance in a variety of geographic locations, wind environments, and installation types,’ said Mr. Miller, who was also on site in Corpus Christi. ‘Tropical Storm Don provided an excellent demonstration of the viability of our rooftop mounted wind turbine design. We are confident that by providing reliable, safe, and cost effective rooftop renewable energy turbine solutions, we will accelerate the use of this largely under developed rooftop real estate for building owners all over the world.’

Affordable rooftop wind power is now available for your building. Today, wind energy is used to generate electricity that powers millions of American homes and businesses. Wind power is also widely recognized as one of most desirable and fastest-growing sources of clean and renewable energy. Until now however, the growth of wind power that we truly need to meet our growing energy demands has been limited by the cost prohibitive nature of current solutions.

The team at Building Turbines realized the need for a reliable rooftop wind turbine that effectively dealt with the structural and mechanical issues and provided the customer a unique, innovative, and compelling way to make clean renewable power on-site. We recognize America’s need to move forward with deployment of wind energy solutions that help us all reduce our dependency on fossil fuels and preserve the environment.

Building Turbines, Inc. is an Austin, Texas-based wind energy company focused on designing, manufacturing and deploying revolutionary rooftop mounted horizontal-axis wind turbines.
