Antrim County

We started on the next turbine yesterday in Antrim County this will be our second unit on this side of the state. My father-in-law has wanted a wind turbine since the 70's and now is getting his dream. He told me that back in the 70's these units were going to cost $50,000 at the time. We are installing his for around $16,000. The turbines back in the 70's were only 120 volt systems and not very efficient. Today's units are 120/240 volts and much more efficient than before. I spoke to a retired engineer in the area and he said that the Skystream is out producing more than what the company says they will. So that is from someone that has a unit and is not part of SWWP. So that is great news.

Well it looks like winter is here for awhile. But it is still not to late to install a new wind turbine of your very own. As a mater of fact we are starting one next week up in Antrim County, we have another in the Vassar area and one to finish in Scottville. I am hoping to sell on more before the end of the year, because I have one set of anchor bolts left and I need to get them out of my garage. If someone reads this blog, calls me, says the saw this and buys a turbine yet this year. I will give the anchor bolts to you for your project. The anchor bolts are a $625 dollar value, plus with the new Federal tax credit for a small wind turbine. That is a savings of $3225.00 off the price of a wind turbine. So the average price of new turbine, installed is between $16000 - 17000 with the above mentioned discount the cost would be between $12700.00 - $13700.00. So call and lets get yours in before the end of the year. Do not let this deal just blow right on by. Call today !!!! (231) 668-4626

Millington Project is complete

I guess I should say we are waiting for the power company, as far as I am concerned my end of it is done. They home owner is extremely happy with the whole project. Our next project is going to be done probably this week in Scottville. We are getting ready to install a 60' unit for the dealer that I work with in that area. I will upload pictures when we have that unit up. We have two more units that we have to install yet this year.

60' Turbine in Custer, MI

We started a new wind turbine project yesterday in Custer. This unit was sold by West Michigan Wind and Solar of Ludington. We have teamed up with them to offer our customers the best sale and service available in the wind turbine industry. We are on a constant look out for new technology so that we can offer the most current turbines available on the market today. We handle the project, from start to finish, so you do not have to.

We will be heading back to the Thumb nexxt week to complete the Millington project. I will be posting pictures of that project next week as things progress along there.

62' high is a long ways down

I was fixing a turbine the other day that is 62' high and I took a few picture to show how far you can see from that height.
