Wind saved Great Lakes and Mid-Atlantic consumers $1 billion during last year’s polar vortex event according to analysis released today. As extreme cold grips large chunks of the country this week, wind energy set record-high outputs, once again saving U.S. consumers money. Wind energy also saved consumers $1 billion in just two days when similar extreme cold hit the U.S. exactly one year ago, according to new data released today by the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA). “This new data adds to the mountain of evidence showing why homegrown wind energy is one of this country’s most affordable and reliable...
Here is a video of us dry ice cleaning corrosion from anchor bolts before applying Rust Bullet Rust inhibitor paint. Physically bonded rust will be removed from steel, but the underlying chemically etched surface created by the rusting process will not be changed, leaving the steel surface clean but still pitted. The same applies to corroded materials, for example, oil, grease and road dirt can be removed from an Aluminium engine block, but the corroded areas, generally caused by road salt, can still be identified after cleaning.
How good is Rust Bullet at protecting your anchor bolts? Watch this video and find out….Under 143,000lbs the Rust Bullet maintains its integrity. This coating is widely used by the US Navy for protecting the United States fleet of ships, as well as countless shipyards, mines, factories and power plants throughout the world. The beauty of using Rust Bullet for protecting your anchor bolts, is that it solves every issue associated with conventional bolt covers and grease. Instead of only being able to see a piece of plastic, which almost always conceal major issues with the bolts, the Rust Bullet...
Washington, D.C.- American wind power topped 4 percent of the U.S. power grid for the first time last year and has delivered 30 percent of all new generating capacity for the last five years. In Iowa and South Dakota, wind power now exceeds 25 percent of total electricity production. In nine states it provided more than 12 percent and in 17 states, more than five percent. Wind power generated 4.13 percent of all the electricity in America in 2013 as the fifth largest electricity source in the U.S. Click here to read the article Click here to visit http://www.awea.org

The V112-3.0 MW is the most rigorously tested turbine ever brought to the market. A short documentary shows how the new turbine was pushed to the limits and beyond. Wind Secure is proud to be the first to work on a VSTAS v112 project in North America.
This is why your project needs to be secure, wow what force! A wind turbine near the city Hornslet Arhus (Denmark) was destroyed by a storm. The safety mechanism to prevent the wind from turning during high winds did not work. It gives way at the :16 second mark in the video.
The best place to see what’s currently happening across the wind industry is at WINDPOWER. The year's event will take place in Orlando, Florida, and focus on what you can do NOW to meet the challenges of today, while preparing for tomorrow. Experience not just possibilities, but reality. WINDPOWER is now. read more..
