Incorporated in 2008 by Justin Phillips and Alex Stuart, Global Wind Group Inc. (GWG) is a Winnipeg, Manitoba-based CleanTech company. GWG designs and sells vertical axis wind turbine (VAWT) technology. Global Wind Group’s value proposition is to bring the customer dependable, clean wind energy at the best possible price.
Some of the features are:
All-in-one system: The system comes standard with the turbine, pole and batteries, and leaves the distributor with the turbine pre-assembled. It mounts to a pile and can be hoisted into place by three workers, thereby eliminating the expense of machinery. Other competitors can’t match the flexibility and versatility of the system since customers have the option to purchase new attachments or use the ZS to power their pre-existing lighting, telecommunications or security hardware.
Omni-directional: Instantaneously accept wind from any direction as opposed to HAWTs (Horizontal Axis Wind Turbines, which require an on-board motor to rotate the unit relative to wind direction).
Turbulent-wind friendly: The turbine is less affected by turbulent air, making it suitable for areas where buildings and trees may disturb airflow.
Low rotation speed: Quiet operation is an important feature of the ZS, and maintaining a low rotation speed relative to HAWT’s reduces noise production.
Warranty: three-year parts warranty is available on the ZS Modular Power System. We will also offer extended warranty packages to our customers.
According to Alex Stuart, GWG President, “Providing customers an alternative to grid-energy has massive implications for the coming ‘smart-grid’ and will ultimately lead to increasing grid-energy costs as the number of customers over which the utility can spread costs declines.”
