Evance R9000 Small Wind Turbine Receives Full Certification From US Small Wind Certification Council (SWCC)

LONDON, January 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Evance Wind Turbines, a world leading manufacturer of small wind turbines, is delighted to announce that its 5kW R9000 turbine has achieved full certification from the Small Wind Certification Council (SWCC) - the US independent body that certifies small turbines that meet or exceed its performance and safety requirements.

The Evance R9000 successfully passed rigorous safety, function, performance and durability testing, in accordance with the AWEA Standard, to become one of only four turbines to achieve full certification from the SWCC.

Kevin Parslow, CEO of Evance Wind Turbines: "It is great news that we have received full SWCC certification for our R9000 turbine. There are R9000 small wind turbines installed across some 17 states, and we're looking to expand this significantly during 2013. Customers already know our turbine is highly efficient and durable, however it's good to receive independent confirmation from the SWCC - not only promoting consumer confidence and industry credibility, but also helping to establish pathways to qualify for incentives."

Montana resident Mike Langert, is already benefitting from efficient energy generation from his R9000 small wind turbine. "Our home has been built to be energy efficient - with well-planned windows, lighting, insulation, and a GSHP heating/cooling system - but we still use 12,000 to 15,000kWh of electricity a year. With the Evance turbine now generating up to 75% of our requirements, we are saving a substantial amount on energy costs and reducing our use of power generated from fossil fuels."

The Evance R9000 is a UK-designed and manufactured 3-blade, upwind, horizontal axis wind turbine with a swept area of 23.8 m 2. The AWEA Rated Annual Energy is 9,160kWh, for one year based on an average wind speed of 5 m/s (11.2 mph), and the AWEA Rated Power is 4.7kW at 11 m/s. The SWCC Consumer Label, Certificate and Summary Report can be found here.

The Evance R9000 - the UK's small wind turbine [*] of choice - was also one of the first small wind turbines to be fully certified under the UK Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) in July 2010.
