 WHY SMART BUSINESS OWNERS 

ARE INVESTING IN WIND ENERGY 

 The prices of energy from conventional sources are on an ever upward spiral. As costs continue to increase, investments in energy alternatives become increasingly attractive. 

Wind energy is today’s leading alternative. Environmentally safe, technologically sound, and definitely renewable, energy from the wind is a technology whose time has come. 

We are dedicated to utilizing wind energy systems as attractive potential investments for today’s marketplace…and tomorrow’s energy. We deliver performance, not promises. 

SMART BUSINESSES RECOGNIZE ATTRACTIVE RETURNS 

It’s time to invest capital into Wind-Powered Assets, joining the growing chorus of smart business owners that have discovered the commercial wind benefits for business. 

If you’re a business owner, installing a wind turbine(s) might seem like a risky move in a complex and confusing market. You may have heard of significant Fortune 500 companies ‘Going Wind’ but thought it might not be feasible for your organization. 

It is time to shake off that old way of thinking and join the growing number of smart business owners who have discovered the commercial wind energy benefits for business. Businesses of all sizes capitalize on investing in Wind Energy’s financial opportunities, proving that a wind-powered energy structure is a critical strategic decision that virtually guarantees a solid financial return on your investment. 

The cost of buying and installing wind-powered energy has dropped considerably in the last five years, while electricity prices continue to skyrocket. This makes the economics of wind energy even more attractive. Businesses of all sizes see cost savings of 50% to 100% on their cost of electricity. 

WHY WOULD I INVEST IN A WIND ENERGY SYSTEM? 

Cut Operating Costs: Wind Power enables the business to lower current electricity costs significantly, by locking in electricity prices and controlling future electricity costs by hedging against price volatility and inflation. 

Increased Cash Flow: Lower electrical costs, the elimination of rate increases, and minimizing long-term expenses will increase revenue and create positive cash flow. 

Return On Capital: Financial incentives provided through the Federal Governments’ Wind Investment Tax Credit Program, Accelerated Bonus Depreciation and USDA REAP Grants all significantly reduce your cost of wind energy, providing a sustainable producing asset for decades to come. 

Return On Investment: Investment returns from cost savings, investment of free cash flow and government financial incentives can reduce wind energy costs by as much as 90%. 

Environmental: Wind energy systems do not produce air pollution or greenhouse gases and they preserve water and reduce climate change. 

Sustainability: Three different parameters determine sustainability: environmentally sustainability (means it doesn’t harm the environment), social sustainability (good steward of resources), and economic sustainability (unlimited renewable energy that is the lowest cost). 

WHY WIND? WHAT DOES “OWN YOUR POWER” MEAN? 

The answer is easy: You want to “own your power” for the same reason you want to own your own home. When you own your own home, your monthly mortgage payment goes towards building a long-term asset that increases in value over time. But when you rent a house that monthly rent payment is gone forever – you never get it back! 

The same is true when you pay your monthly electric bill to the electric utility company – that money is gone forever. With wind, however, you replace all or most of your electric bill with wind – an investment asset that immediately increases the value of your business and continues to pay above market returns for decades into the future. 

REAL CASE EXAMPLE: 

As you can see, the numbers add up – wind energy represents a very smart capital investment for businesses. It offers an extremely short payback period, very reliable financial returns, and helps protect business owners against rising energy prices.
