Attractive - Manufactured with corrosion-resistant soft silver paint
that can be re-painted in any color, Windspire provides a truly
aesthetically-inspiring renewable wind power option. It is
appropriate for rural, suburban, and some urban residential
environments alike, and at 30 feet, it is below typical residential and
urban zoning restrictions. Several Windspires placed artistically in
arrays can form an interesting display of kinetic art in front of small
businesses, commercial buildings, resorts, etc.
Extremely Quiet - Our uniquely slender vertical axis design allows
Windspire to operate with a low tip speed ratio (the edges of the
rotor spin just 2 to 3 times the speed of the wind), which makes it
Durable, Simple Installation, Low Maintenance - Rugged yet simple
construction means durability - Windspire is rated for winds up to
100 mph - and low maintenance for customers. Installation is
simple, and can be completed by a professional installer in a matter
of hours. The Windspire kit comes complete with everything you will
typically need, except the concrete, so installers do not need to
source numerous other components. Once installed, you can "plug
'n produce" - plug it into your outlet to begin drawing power from the
wind. Alternatively you can have it hard-wired into your building.
Regular maintenance is limited to a couple of minutes a year to oil
the bearings, located 9 feet above the ground.
Power from Advanced Technology - Mariah Power’s patented
technology includes a rotor, generator, and inverter designed as a
complete system to optimize the conversion of wind energy into
electricity. The 1.2 kW (1.2 kilowatt, or 1200 watts) Windspire will
produce approximately 2000* kilowatt hours per year in 12 mile per
hour average winds. The Windspire also includes an internal
wireless modem that can continuously transmit power production
information directly to your computer so you can check your power
production at any time.
With so many advantages, and priced well below other renewable
energy products, Windspire is the natural choice.
*annual energy production is estimated based on site conditions
(real world applications will be 500-1500 kWhs)

Windspire wind turbines were designed to
be easily integrated into existing buildings to
offset energy use and provide a strong
statement about environmental stewardship.
On-site wind generation also has the added
benefit of encouraging greater energy
conservation by employees in the building.
That is one of the reasons why leading
technology company, Adobe Systems of San
Jose, California, installed 20 Windspires at
their LEED Platinum certified headquarters.
Local governments in the U.S. are using stimulus
dollars to showcase renewable energy systems. Many
are installing Windspire wind turbines to share the
power of wind with their constituents. The innovative
design and silent operation of the Windspires allow
towns and cities to install them in the heart of urban
and suburban areas exposing the general population
to the latest in wind power technology. The City of
Reno, Nevada is putting a Windspire on display in the
heart of the biggest little city in the world. The Missouri
Department of Transportation installed Windspires at
redesigned welcome centers on Interstate 44.
A clean energy future starts with the education of today’
s youth. Elementary, high school and vocational
institutions are installing Windspire wind turbines to
teach about the power of wind. The installation
provides a hands-on learning experience in all facets
of wind energy- from siting and wind resource
research to measuring energy use and developing
conservation programs. The available Wind Sync
monitoring software allows students to view energy
production in real-time.
Windspire wind turbines are designed to be integrated
into campuses and offer universities the ability to
demonstrate their commitment to sustainability.
Quinnipiac University in Hamden, Connecticut
installed 25 Windspires at a new green campus to
provide energy for exterior lighting and to show their
commitment to a sustainable future for the school and
campus. The University of Kansas School of
Architecture and Urban Planning incorporated
Windspires into its design/build program. The thin
profile and silent operation brings wind power to
campus in a beautiful and unobtrusive way.
Homes across the country are using wind power
generated by Windspire wind turbines to generate
clean renewable energy and offset their energy use.
Only 30 feet tall and silent, the Windspires are
designed to fit in well in urban and suburban areas. U.
S. homeowners are eligible for a 30% federal tax
credit off the total cost of the turbines including
installation and available local rebates as much as
$4,800 in some states.
Windspire wind turbines were designed to
complement sustainability initiatives that many eco-
resorts, ski resorts and golf courses are currently
undertaking. The innovative design and silent
operation integrates easily into resort environments,
providing renewable energy and a point of
differentiation for the destinations. The Extreme Wind
Windspire is able to handle the extreme conditions of
ski resorts while reminding visitors of the resort’s
commitment to protecting the environment.
A growing trend in the agricultural industry is a shift
towards sustainable farming practices. Organic farms
and wineries are installing Windspire wind turbines to
generate clean energy while demonstrating the farm’s
commitment to the environment. The USDA has REAP
grants available to help offset the costs, which can be
combined with a 30% federal tax credit and local
Parks and Museums
Teaching the public about the importance of renewable energy
is a big task. Public parks, museums, discovery centers and
botanic gardens across the country, including the US Botanic
Garden, are using Windspire wind turbines to engage
audiences and teach them about the power of wind energy.
The sleek design makes it easy to integrate Windspires into
existing buildings and parks, and the available Wind Sync
monitoring software allows exhibit designers to share energy
production data from the turbines with their visitors.
