A virgin market for wind power
We began getting requests that seemed to come out of nowhere, from places we had never heard of, all over the world. Then we began to notice something odd: A lot of these people were writing to us from ISLANDS. And they weredesperate for reliable, reasonably-priced power … they had heard of Sauer Energy, one way or another … and they were all asking the same question that investors have been asking:
“When can we buy one of your wind turbines?”
Describing them as “desperate” is no exaggeration. As their lifestyles have improved in recent years — with computers, air conditioners, power equipment and other accouterments for modern living — their need for electricity has soared. But the more power they need, the more dependent they’ve become on it, and the more expensive “modern” living was becoming. (Once you’ve used an air conditioner, you never want to go back to fans!)
Solar has helped a bit, but there's a definite need for more wind generated power, which is why we have been getting emails from islands all over, practically begging for a ‘small-wind’ turbine that’s rugged and reliable, and can generate enough power to light up a small home.
The island market is huge!
Frankly, this relatively undiscovered market has been a real eye-opener. And the more we think of it, the more it blows us away.
I mean, talk about a captive market with a million power-starved households — actually, a lot more — that are off the grid, solar-restricted, buffeted by winds and who badly need clean, reliable wind-generated power.
Because, remember, these are ISLANDS, which means their inhabitants, need power that they can rely on, month after month, year after year.
Given all this, you can see why Sauer Energy’s WindCutter will be an authentic game-changer: Slated to be the first-and-only ‘small-wind’ turbine to be certified, and able to provide significant power.
I want Sauer’s WindCutters to be like those old service-free ‘beetle’ Volkswagens: They seemed to live forever!
