Urban Wind Turbine From Soenso Energy Generates Clean Electricity For Pub & Fish House
ATLANTA, GEORGIA, January 5, 2009 – Roger K. Cone, president of renewable energy integrator Soenso Energy of Marietta, Georgia, announced today that Six Feet Under-Westside Pub & Fish House has become the first restaurant in Atlanta to use wind energy to generate electricity to help power its business. Restaurateurs Nancy and Tad Mitchell selected the Skystream 3.7 Wind Turbine for their location at 685 11th Street NW in Atlanta. The Skystream is mounted on a forty-five foot tower at the back of the restaurant’s parking lot. The sleek wind turbine, overlooking the Atlanta Water Works, is on one of the highest points in the city and is visible to southbound traffic on Howell Mill Road and Northside Drive.
About the Skystream 3.7
The Skystream, developed by Arizona-based Southwest Windpower in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Lab, has unique curved blades for quiet operation. It is the first residential/small commercial wind turbine that includes a built-in inverter and requires no external components. The Skystream qualifies for Federal and Georgia clean energy income tax credits. With Atlanta’s average annual wind speeds of about nine mph, the Skystream should generate approximately 200kWh/month of clean electricity. The Skystream 3.7 was awarded a 2006 Best of What’s New award from the editors of Popular Science and included in TIME magazine’s 2006 Best Inventions.
