In March through May of 2012, UGE worked with Texas A&M to offset a large portion of the university’s energy consumption as well as to better educate students about engineering and the renewable sector.
In January 2011, 32 eddyGT units were installed at the new Lexington Farms residential development in suburban St. Louis. This development is the first LEED Platinum community of its kind in the United States. The hybrid installations nearly eliminated electricity bills for the development’s low income residents:
Location: Jerseyville, IL, USA
Installed Capacity: 32 kW
Energy Production: Hybrid system supplies nearly all the energy required for 32 homes
Savings: More than $54,000 annually in utility costs
Sustainability: LEED Platinum certified
The new National Centre for Health and Wellbeing is designed to achieve a 6 Star Design rating under the Green Building Council of Australia’s Green Star Education v1 tool.
The installation was an extension of the school's sustainability and energy plan and a demonstration site for mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, and fluid dynamics students.
Location: Fitzroy, Australia
Avg. Wind Speed: 5.5 m/s
Solution: Six UGE-4K's installed on the roof of the school. Installed by UGE Partner Urban Wind Power, and designed by Abigroup, an Australia-based design, consulting, and construction firm.

Location: Valladolid, Spain
Avg. Wind Speed: 5 m/s
UGE Solution: 9 eddyGTs
The customer has achieved their goal of drawing attention to the sustainability initiatives of the city.
The turbines and towers are both a distinctive custom color which allowed them to blend well into the existing structure.
Location: Beijing, China
Completed: January 2012
100 kW Solar, 5 eddyGTs
Large hybrid system offsets significant portion of energy consumption while feeding energy to batteries.
“Beijing Star Double has taken full advantage of the environment to decrease its reliance on traditional fuel sources. The variety of clean and renewable energy sources, including over 1500 square meters of solar panels, are focused around the wind turbine system at its center.”
Completed: October 2011
Solution: Turbine connected into the local grid offsets energy consumption from the restaurant directly
