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 anyoneanywhere."

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
