Talco, a supplier of distributed-scale wind turbines, and Wind Analytics, a provider of wind resource and financial modeling, have merged to form United Wind.

The new company, through its proprietary WindLease platform, says it will enable customers to lease distributed-scale wind turbines, suitable for home and business environments, for little to no money down. In addition, United Wind says it handles all aspects of installation including financing, permitting, installation and maintenance of the turbines.

"The environmental and cost-saving benefits of using the wind as an energy source are undeniable; it's the upfront investment that has been holding people back,” says Tal Mamo, United Wind's president and co-founder. “The formation of United Wind will help stimulate the adoption of wind energy by agricultural, commercial, educational, and residential organizations by removing one of the primary barriers to entry - the cost."
