  • 1.  Commercial solar installers: Share your needs!

    Posted 17 days ago

    Hi All,

    I'm posting here on behalf of an old classmate who is now the COO of a wind startup, Accelerate Wind.

    Accelerate Wind makes small wind turbines to increase clean energy production on commercial buildings with solar. They are currently conducting customer research to learn more about commercial solar installers' needs and market trends.

    If you or someone you know installs solar on commercial buildings, Accelerate Wind would greatly appreciate a few minutes of your time.

    Those open to a brief call can email COO Sophie Schaffer at sophie@acceleratewind.com.

    Thank you!

    Interesting laying down those 12 VAWT eggbeaters with deflection sheathing at the down and backside surfaces. I am guessing they are somewhere between 1 and 3 KW each... I would also assume the prevailing wind is at "that" side of the building where located, for the "front" updraft and backside pressure drop.

    Good luck with it....
