Together with WindTamer's mobile Renewable Energy Trailer developed for military applications, the commissioning of the first Power on Demand system extends WindTamer's reach into the rapidly developing energy storage and power management sector and also marks the Company's increasing utilization of solar energy in its mix of product offerings.
Power on Demand is a proprietary patent-pending system that is designed to utilize energy inputs from multiple sources together with a custom-designed battery storage bank to reduce grid demand and provide power when customer loads are high, thereby smoothing power demand on the grid and lowering electricity costs to the customer. The energy can be generated from renewable sources such as wind and solar and also from fuel cells and the grid itself, depending on the available energy resources at a given site. Each Power on Demand system is custom designed by WindTamer's engineers with options to blend in renewable energy inputs to best utilize the resources at the customer's location.
The system is designed to include a proprietary 'smart monitoring' technology developed by WindTamer that, among other things, monitors the power usage of the site in real-time and determines when to release energy from the battery system so as to optimize the battery life and maximize the value of the overall system to the customer.
WindTamer's CEO William Schmitz said, "It would be difficult to overestimate the significance of the commissioning of this system for our Company and its shareholders. As I have previously stated, we see Power on Demand as a major driver of our growth in 2011 and beyond. This product expands our potential customer base exponentially because it dramatically reduces the payback period to the customer, which makes Power on Demand an extremely attractive value proposition to a much wider variety of large energy users who deal with peak usage pricing."
Mr. Schmitz added that he expects some of the larger Power on Demand systems in the sales pipeline will be priced in the mid-to-high six figures.
