Helix Wind, Corp. announced that it has signed a joint distribution agreement with Synergy California LP to deploy small wind vertical axis turbines designed, developed and manufactured by Helix Wind. For the initial major project, they will deploy 25 Helix Wind S594 Systems at the Oklahoma Medical Research Facility in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Ground-breaking ceremonies were held last month at the Medical Research Facility.
â€œThe strategic distribution agreement with Synergy California moves small wind into the mainstream of new urban development projects by providing efficient electrons with an elegant esthetic view,â€ stated Helix Wind Chairman & President Scott Weinbrandt. “Providing a solution to reduce the cost of traditional carbon based fossil fuel is a huge step forward in reducing carbon footprint in major cities. The deployment of Helix Wind turbines in support of a major research center in an urban setting is a key milestone for us, and we are proud to be a renewable energy solutions provider to the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation.â€
Synergy California CEO Reinhold Ziegler commented, â€œUsing Helix Windâ€™s S594 small wind turbine system will significantly reduce traditional fuel costs and provide a renewable energy foundation for facilities such as OMRF. The 185,000 square feet laboratory adds additional space to the existing research campus. This facility will become Oklahomaâ€™s second gold-certified LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) building and first research lab. When the project is completed, 25 S594 wind turbines will be integrated into ducted-shrouds of the building. This is the first micro-wind farm on a building in the world.â€
