WindStream Technologies, Inc. was established in 2008 with the goal of designing, prototyping and manufacturing affordable and scalable renewable energy technologies for a global marketplace.  The Company has developed and tested the first-of-its-kind, integrated, hybrid energy solution and is now marketing and selling SolarMills® to a worldwide customer base.

In 2009, the Company set up its Research and Development facilities at the Purdue Research Center in New Albany, Indiana with an academic alliance with Purdue University and a generous grant from the State of Indiana.  Engineers were hired for their expertise in fluid dynamics, turbine design, power electronics and electro mechanical engineering. The Company set out to build a system that was unique in the industry focusing on a highly efficient design that was able to leverage manufacturing techniques commonly found in mass-production environments.

Upon completing many rounds of prototyping and testing, both in the lab and in real world environments, WindStream set up its manufacturing facilities in 2011 in a 50,000 sq. ft. facility in North Vernon, Indiana where it currently manufactures and ships its products to customers all over the world.

The Company has recently set up its India/South Asia Operations under the name of WindStream Energy Technologies, Private Limited with the intent of servicing that part of the world with products manufactured in India under the close inspection of WindStream USA.  WindStream will continue to manufacture and ship its products globally from its Indiana facilities.

The Company has been granted U.S. patents for its technology with a suite of additional patents both domestic and international in various stages of prosecution.

In an effort to provide more consistent energy generation than a “wind only” or “solar only” system, WindStream Technologies has developed a first-of-its-kind, fully integrated, “HYBRID” renewable energy product, The “SolarMill®.” The SolarMill® incorporates 3 vertical axis wind turbines (VAWT) with P.V. technology within a compact footprint, creating the greatest energy density of any product on the market. The hybrid concept of the SolarMill® is unique, seamlessly integrating wind and solar energy generation in a single unit. This allows the product to be an effective solution in markets where the natural resources available for wind or solar energy generation alone do not justify investment.

According to Dan Bates President at WindStream Technologies, Inc their products are available in the African market and they have been used in Nigeria, Ghana and Kenya andMost installations are on either residential properties and/or small commercial properties, and represent both on-grid and off-grid applications.

Dan also added that they are currently in talks with with several new potential dealers in other Countries, including Tanzania, Uganda, and South Africa since they look forward to establish relationships in Africa.
