National City, Calif.-based Knight & Carver Wind Group has reached agreement with Northern Power to build several preliminary sets of 10-meter wind blades for community-scale wind power generation

The blades will be utilized on the Northwind 100 turbine, as produced by Northern Power. The Northwind 100 turbine is sized specifically for generating wind energy in a wide range of community wind applications in towns, schools and businesses around the world.

"We’re pleased to be aligned with Northern Power in this exciting project that promises to provide the benefits of small-wind renewable energy to regions as diverse as Alaska, Canada, the Northeast and California," says Sampson A. Brown, president and CEO of Knight & Carver Wind Group.

Knight & Carver’s research and development team will be led by composite engineer Craig Robinson and production manager Leo Martinez. In addition, Knight & Carver will provide Northern Power with manufacturing engineering support. The project begins immediately, with the first phrase of product delivery expected by year-end.
