Introducing City Windmills, Inc.
City Windmills has the objective to become the world leader in small wind turbines for factories, office buildings and households. The path to achieve such an objective is to provide clients with a suite of pollution-free windmill products which can produce energy and optionally be used as advertisement for commercial users.
City Windmills aims to address three problems:
Need for back up wind-powered electricity generation for power outages
With increased extremes of weather in the USA, power outages are becoming more frequent, and sometimes the grid can only be restored after weeks, not hours.
Need for affordable low-cost energy generation
As energy costs continue to rise, substituting the grid for independent, lower cost energy, especially sourced from renewable sources, is socially responsible and now more economic.
Need for off-grid, stand alone wind-powered LED lighting for parks, open spaces
In many remote communities, or parks & recreational spaces, providing electrification for lighting is expensive. Stand alone wind-powered LED lighting is inexpensive and eco-friendly.
CW small wind-turbines can generate electricity at 1/3rd the cost of solar panels, and placement on the roof of buildings utilizes space otherwise wasted. The electrical systems are very similar to that of solar panels, so this eco-friendly solution is non-polluting, silent, inexpensive and provides for independence from the grid, essential when power outages occur.
CW500 – Small Wind Turbine
- Designed for domestic rooftop installation
- Power output to run lighting, internet/phones, furnace burner, water pump, most household uses (non A/C.)
- Battery storage for power outages/savings
CW1000 – Small Commercial Wind Turbine
- Designed for commercial/industrial rooftop installation
- CW2000 – Large Commercial Wind Turbine
- Designed for large building rooftop installation
- All turbines are silent
- Similar electrical wiring to solar panel systems (battery storage optional)
- Shroud to protect returning turbine blades from wind (advertising possible on shroud)
WindLighting™ – Remote Street /Area Lighting
- Power output to run LED lighting systems, for remote/off-grid areas
- Major applications in third world countries, applicable for World Bank Millennium Challenge
- With a white gel battery storage, WindLighting™ can provide night-time lighting and can be re-charged continuously whenever the wind blows, night & day
The USA faces huge energy problems :
- moving away from reliance on oil & gas, the polluting energies
- growing demand for energy, particularly from renewable energy sources
- more extreme weather resulting in power outages for population areas
- increasing electricity prices
City Windmill's small wind turbines can address all the above, generating profits for the company while meeting the real energy needs of the population.
The U.S. wind electricity net generation has increased exponentially since 2000 and does not look to be slowing anytime soon.
There are very few commercial solutions for roof-top wind energy production, and most are either noisy propeller turbines or inefficient vertical axis turbines. Our very efficient design, with silent running and eco-friendly, is an industry game-changer. Furthermore, CW small wind turbines generate electricity at 1/3rd the cost of solar panel systems, so has huge potential for competitive pricing advantages and profitability.
City Windmills has the objective to become the world leader in small wind turbines for factories, office buildings and households. With wind energy readily available, and much cheaper per kwh versus solar, wind turbines are a perfect, pollution-free complement or alternative to solar systems, on rooftops nationwide.
City Windmills has signed a US distribution agreement with Orange Power & Light, which will sell and install both the CW500, CW 1000 and CW2000 nationwide. Other solar installers and building facility managers will be targeted to develop sales channels.
What is your current strategy for customer acquisition?
Customer acquisition will be driven by 2 strategies:
- push strategy, through social media, demo sites, media coverage
- pull strategy, selling through established solar panel installer channels
- First prototype WindLighting™ installed in Connecticut in January 2018
- Best Wind Turbine Design & Engineering Company - USA & Industrial Roof-Top Installation of the Year - 2016 Architecture Awards
- Presenting to UN General Assembly in April 2018
- Launch of all 4 products in USA – by end of 2018
- Establish production with Federal Prison Industries in USA by end of 2018
- Profitability by year-end
