United Wind, a provider of distributed-scale wind energy announced that company president, Tal Mamo has been selected by the Wind Power Workshop to discuss Financial Considerations and Wind Incentives on December 10, 2013, 10 am to 12:30 pm, at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), Rochester, NY. The event, sponsored by CEC Energy, a division of Cazenovia Equipment Company, will provide information on how to produce renewable energy using wind turbines.
According to Earth Policy Institute, U.S. wind power capacity has more than tripled since 2007. Wind is the fastest growing energy source, jumping 94% over the past three years. As wind deployments increase, wind energy will become more affordable and the ideal alternative to rising energy costs.
“One of the major barriers for small property owners and farmers in adopting wind energy has been the initial capital equipment expenses,” explains Tal Mamo, United Wind’s Co-Founder and President. “By using new financing models, small property owners can now take advantage of wind turbines without the up-front equipment expenses, to leverage considerable energy cost savings.”
United Wind says it offers significant savings through its WindLease program made possible by the first institutional capital investment tax equity commitment of $25million from GSG Energy Finance. By targeting New York, Oregon, Massachusetts and Maryland states, the company can effectively monetize the tax incentives created by these projects for significant savings for customers. United Wind plans to partner with CEC Energy and other experienced partners to handle the planning, construction, installation, permitting and ongoing maintenance of each turbine – passing the savings to property owners with suitable properties. Additionally, by partnering with a network of experienced partners familiar with the local requirements for distributed-scale wind turbines, Untied Wind helps create local jobs across New York state and nationwide. The company’s wind energy financing model for reducing upfront costs was highlighted at a recent U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) 2012 Market Report on Wind Technologies in Distributed Applications report.
“By providing a forum of top wind energy industry experts as well as wind turbine owners, we hope workshop attendees will gain the necessary and valuable information and insight needed to select wind turbines as their renewable energy source. This is an ideal option for owners of large farms, wineries/vineyards, manufacturing facilities as well as public institutions like schools and municipalities,” says Mark Ferrara, Alternative Energy Specialist, CEC Energy.
