AllEarth Renewables has over 25 years of experience designing and manufacturing wind and solar renewable energy systems. It began with the pioneering vision of its founder, David Blittersdorf.
David grew up in Pittsford, Vermont within view of Grandpa’s Knob, the site of the world’s first large-scale wind turbine, which inspired his early fascination with creating clean energy from the wind. During his teenage years, David began tinkering with model wind turbines for fun. His hobby became a passion in 1973 during the Arab Oil Embargo. With his first driver’s license in hand and gasoline in short supply, the effects of our nation’s oil addiction became painfully clear. So, for his senior year engineering project at the University of Vermont, David built his first working wind turbine.
In 1982, when the wind energy industry was in its infancy, David founded NRG Systems, a pioneering manufacturer of wind measurement systems. Today, NRG products can be found on every continent, in more than 130 countries, serving electric utilities, wind farm developers, research institutes, government agencies and universities.
In 2005 David founded Earth Turbines to pursue his passion for designing a reliable, durable small-scale wind turbine. In 2009, Earth Turbines introduced the AllSun Tracker and added solar energy systems to the company’s product portfolio, which required an update of the company name to AllEarth Renewables.
Today, AllEarth Renewables is a dedicated team that brings this heritage of engineering expertise, marketing experience and commitment to renewable energy full circle: developing small-scale wind and solar energy systems that promote a secure energy future for individual homeowners, businesses and the planet.
