First residential VAWT in San Diego

the very first vertical axis wind turbine has been installed at a residence in Jamul, Calif.

Windsun Energy Systems has completed the very first vertical axis wind turbine in San Diego County. We installed a WE POWER 3.4k FALCON series wind turbine in Jamul in December. This grid-tied unit should off-set the customers' electric consumption by 50% to 75% annually. The site was ideal for a VAWT as the hills helped to direct the wind at our turbine. After only a week of operation the turbine has been operating every day, sometimes as early as 5 in the morning! The customer reports complete silence from the turbine even in 20 mph winds!

San Diego County building officials were very helpful in the permitting of this unit and almost as excited as we were at the commissioning. With luck, we will get more cities to adopt small wind regulations and guidelines.

GreenFasten™ solar panel roof mount hardware, watertight, USA made

The GreenFasten™ - GF1 system utilizes the patented watertight technology EcoFasten Solar® is known for. The flashing is fit with our EPDM rubber bushing and when used with a compatible EcoFasten Solar compression bracket (milled with countersink), a watertight seal is created, which protects the integrity of the roof. Requiring just a single fastener (lag bolt or self-drilling), GreenFasten provides the fastest install in the industry and will not void roofing manufacturer's warranties. Backed by IAPMO certification, GreenFasten delivers a mounting solution for all new or existing (retrofit) composition shingle roofs, and is the most cost-effective solution available. Like all of the solar roof mount solutions in our line of products, GreenFasten is made in the USA using recycled materials.
