Diesel has been used as a source of energy for many many years. Up until recently Diesel electricity has been one of the easiest and least expensive options. The view of diesel changed during the last oil price spike when suddenly electricity from diesel was significantly more expensive. Despite the current ‘low’ in diesel prices (approximately $80/bbl when this article was written), the days of cheap oil are past.
Diesel electricity is typically used where other sources are unavailable. In Global Wind Groups home country, Canada, this typically means remote /northern communities, outposts, and recreational properties. In many island countries, the entire island is powered by diesel fuel, leaving regular citizens and businesses exposed to fluctuations in the international oil markets.
Global Wind Group Inc.¹s renewable energy products are an excellent way to off-set diesel consumption. Installations of GWGs Vertical-Axis Wind Turbines (VAWT) are scalable, meaning as more power is needed more turbines are installed. Since each turbine saves diesel costs, those savings can be re-invested in more turbines, eventually leading to an elimination of diesel altogether.
Investing in renewable energy sources is a wise decision which insulates customers from rising fuel prices. Contact us today to discover what a
