Wind-farm developer Juhl Wind, Woodstock, Minn., says its Next Generation Power Systems subsidiary has received orders for 14 of its recent 33-kW wind turbines. The $880,000 orders come from a handful of Midwestern states and for projects slated for installation in 2009. NextGen revenues totaled about $450,000 for 2008. “While we are nearly doubling all of NextGen’s business for 2008 through the middle of the year 2009, we believe it is just the tip of the iceberg,” says Juhl Wind president John Mitola.
Company CEO Dan Juhl says he sees the market growth stimulated by federal and state incentives available to end-users. “We also believe our turbine benefits from the combination of its proven track record with on-site wind coupled with the initial stages of the company’s growth plan,” he said. Mitola adds that the company plans to recruit new dealers and distributors as well as to expand manufacturing capabilities.
