SolarMill(R) Included in Popular Science’s Segment “July Smart Yards”
NORTH VERNON, IN — (Marketwired) — 07/09/15 — WindStream Technologies (OTCQB: WSTI) (“WindStream” or the “Company”) announced that its patented SolarMill® has been featured on NBC’s “TODAY” show as part of the “July Smart Yards” segment from Popular Science. This highly visible placement coincides with the Company’s launch of its products in the U.S.
WindStream’s SolarMill® is a unique hybrid renewable energy technology designed to harness solar and wind energy in a single, fully integrated unit. SolarMills are in use all over the world, from Jamaica to India to Latin America, and this was the American audience’s first chance to see the SolarMill® technology, live from Rockefeller Plaza.
Dan Bates, President and CEO of WindStream Technologies, said, “We were very excited to be a part of Popular Science’s segment on the TODAY show and honored that our technology was chosen and displayed. This will be the first time that the SolarMill® has appeared on U.S. television media and it could not come at a better time as we roll out our products for sale in the States. We believe that the SolarMill® will resonate with American consumers who are looking for ways to reduce their power bill and ultimately their carbon footprint.”
“Whether on the roof of a commercial building, installed at an eco-friendly resort, or deployed in remote locations bringing power to people who’ve never had electricity, the products are designed to deliver substantial results and an attractive return on investment. The unique design of the SolarMill® allows it to be easily installed as a renewable energy solution where traditional technologies may not be deployed. Americans, both in rural settings and in our biggest cities, can benefit from this technology,” added Bates.
The SolarMill® is a scalable and easily installed renewable energy platform and comes in a variety of models designed to meet the needs of any consumer. The Company offers the SolarMill® SM1-3P model in the U.S. as a complete package including inverter. The unit sells for $3,125 and, under an “early adopter” promotional program, WindStream will provide the customer with a $200 dollar installation credit for their local installer. This credit is designed to not only reduce the cost of ownership but further attract new distributor channels for the Company. An SM1-3P is rated at 1.2 kW’s and will produce from between 112 kWh’s to 135 kWh’s a month, depending on the available wind and solar resources. Multiple units can be easily connected to add more power generation.
