WES Canada, in partnership with manufacturer WES Netherlands, offers the Tulipo—a 2.5 kilowatt, grid-connected wind-powered generator designed with in-town facilities in mind: schools, gas stations, supermarkets, and the like. It’s an urban turbine. The specially designed blades and low operating speed contribute to the quieter-than-normal operation of this uniquely designed turbine, which starts turning at a minimum wind speed of 3 meters per second—0.1 miles per hour. WES Canada will package the Tulipo in batches of five for corporate customers. Larger 80- and 250-kilowatt commercial turbines are also available.
