Distributed Wind Energy

On the Rise
Wind Energy
For many years, countries around the world have been harvesting wind to provide inexpensive energy and to decrease reliance on fossil fuels. In the United States, the wind industry has almost tripled its energy capacity in the past ten years, and in some states, wind energy now provides more than 40% of the total electricity consumed. 

One of the most exciting developments in wind energy is the growing interest in rooftop wind turbine technology as opposed to offshore wind. SHINE is proud to partner with Hover Energy to bring to life hybrid energy systems that are installed directly on rooftops in the built environment. These rooftop wind turbines are small, affordable, and nearly silent, making them an excellent choice for businesses and building owners. And with wind energy continuing to grow in popularity around the world, investing in a rooftop Wind-Powered Microgrid that features wind, solar, and battery storage may be one of the best decisions you ever make.
What is Distributed Wind Energy?
The vast majority of the growth in wind energy production in the past 20 years has occurred in so-called utility-scale wind projects - massive windmills in large fields producing huge amounts of electricity sold directly to utilities and other large-scale electricity buyers. Until Now.

SHINE has begun developing projects that produce wind energy on location. Unlike traditional wind farms, which produce power that has to be transmitted over high voltage power lines for tens or hundreds (or even thousands) of miles, our projects produce wind energy right where our commercial and industrial customers use the electricity - also known as distributed wind energy projects.
Combining Wind and Solar
One of the major criticisms of wind and solar energy is that the resources are intermittent and seasonally variable. One little known solution to the problem is to combine wind turbines and solar panels on the same project. “Wind resource tends to complement solar resource,” says Sarah Kurtz of the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory. In many locations, the wind resource is higher in the months where the solar resource is lower.
