SAN DIEGO–(Public Wire)– Helix Wind Corp. (OTCBB: HLXW), a global renewable energy company, reported today that its wind turbine model S322 and its Wind Turbine Monitoring System (WTMS) have been incorporated into the total renovation of a 1916 home, located on Chicago`s North Side, which has turned the home into a showcase for aesthetically pleasing renewable energy solutions.
Architect Kathleen O`Donnell of Tripartite, Inc., Chicago, IL, said she chose Helix Wind`s S322 to power the renovated 4,700 sq. ft. house, which is a combination home, office and studio for her husband, a painter, because the turbine was beautiful, quiet and took advantage of the “Windy City’s” own natural resource.
The renovated house creates its own energy, which can be sold back to the local electric utility, as well as uses a whole range of conservation materials. Helix Wind`s model S322 turbine, a renewable energy system for residential
applications, is an integral part of the house`s renewable energy platform. In
addition, Helix`s proprietary WMTS monitoring system will be delivering
comprehensive real-time data on the turbine`s performance and efficiency to the homeowner`s computer.
Ian Gardner, CEO of Helix Wind, said, “Architects like Kathleen O`Donnell, who
are catering to the growing demand for “green” housing, find our 2.0kW small
wind turbine beautifully supports the homeowner`s energy needs. Also, our WTMS showcases the accountability and transparency of our small wind systems.”
The Helix S322, which sells for $7,500, provides smooth power delivery across a broad range of wind speeds and under the most difficult of physical environments. Simple to install, modular and scalable, the S322 is ideally suited for urban environments and off-grid locations. It is built to endure and is captivating to the eye.
O`Donnell anticipates that her experience planning and designing the
infrastructure for Helix Wind`s turbine as well as using it will give her a leg
up in competing for “green” housing business commissions. This is especially
true, she said, since the real estate crash has made energy costs a significant
factor in a home`s resale value. “Developers as well as homeowners are now more sensitive to housing energy costs,” she said, “and this is what the future is going to look like.”
