Leading Food Processing Company's Commitment to Environmental Responsibility Will Integrate SheerWind's INVELOX Wind Power System

Industry-changing INVELOX provides green energy option for manufacturing businesses.

MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 21, 2014 -- SheerWind, a wind energy technology company, is pleased to begin a preliminary assessment to determine the power capacity of their INVELOX wind-power generation system for a Midwest food processing plant. Following the assessment phase, SheerWind plans to propose a 15 to 25 MW INVELOX wind-power plant installation at the facility. Each INVELOX wind tower can produce power with up to three turbines. Interest in SheerWind's technology includes lowering energy costs while reducing carbon footprint and impact on the environment.


SheerWind's INVELOX technology provides high-performance, cost-efficient wind energy:

*Ground-based turbines reduce operating and maintenance costs
*Increased capacity factor to a record 60-90%
*Multiple turbines in a single tower
*Cost competitive with fossil fuel
*Safe production close to end-user
*No harm to animals or flying friends

"The potential is very exciting for SheerWind. We see this as the beginning of a great partnership with a company that is committed to providing food globally while reducing its carbon footprint," said Steve Hill, COO of SheerWind. "This partnership assists SheerWind's mission to provide sustainable, affordable, electrical energy to anyone—anywhere."
