Ontario, N.Y.-based Sustainable Energy Developments Inc. (SED) recently completed the installation of a 600 kW wind turbine at East Otis, Mass.-based Williams Stone Co., a family owned and operated company that produces standard granite curbing products for highway construction and site development, as well as granite landscaping products for steps, benches and posts.

"Industrial companies, like Williams Stone, are one of the country's most energy-intensive sectors, which will be heavily relied upon to rebuild our economy," says Kevin Schulte, CEO of SED. "This is, and will continue to be, a successful project model, because it combines an energy-intensive manufacturer with clean, renewable energy technology. There are similar facilities in windy locations across the nation, and we hope to bring wind power to all of them."

Construction of the 600 kW Vestas RRB wind turbine started in November 2008 and was completed on May 28 under the direction of Dave Strong, a senior project manager at SED. The project cost $1.7 million, and with an estimated annual savings of $172,000, this project is expected to pay for itself in six to eight years, according to SED.
