California, United States [RenewableEnergyWorld.com] Marquiss Wind Power Inc. announced that its wind turbine technology has met the requirements issued by two Northern California electric utilities to connect to the power grid. Pacific Gas & Electric and the Sacramento Municipal Utility District recently approved the connections.
Marquiss Wind Power’s turbines are designed to be located on commercial, industrial, big box store and warehouse rooftops. They have the ability to rotate 360-degrees, generating power from the wind, no matter the direction. Marquiss Wind Power’s turbines generate on-site power, without any need for additional transmission lines, and connect to power grids in the same manner as solar panels.
“We look forward to partnering with many businesses and government agencies in Northern California to deliver an affordable alternative to traditional energy,” said Paul Misso, CEO of Marquiss Wind Power. “We have received considerable interest from numerous electric users in Northern California and will soon have many of our units serving customers.”
The Marquiss Wind Power turbine costs between US $30,000-60,000, depending on the model, and a payback period of between four to eight years, depending on wind speeds, the company said.
