Wind technology group Distributed Energy Systems Corp. has received orders for seven Northwind 100 wind turbines for use in Alaska and the northeastern U.S.

Four of the advanced 100 kW wind systems were sold to the Alaska Village Electric Cooperative (AVEC), a utility responsible for providing power to 53 villages in Alaska. The other three wind turbines were ordered by Sustainable Energy Developments Inc. (SED), an Ontario, N.Y.-based company currently developing wind projects with businesses, municipalities, residences, schools and farms in the Northeast.

AVEC's Northwind 100 units are expected to be installed in its remote village diesel systems in Mekoryuk and Savoonga, which border the Bering Sea. According to Distributed Energy, the Northwind 100 was designed for use in wind-diesel applications, and more recently has been released as an alternative power generator for small businesses, commercial farms, small communities, schools and universities, and small corporate and industrial sites.

The turbine uses gearless design and direct-drive architecture to deliver high-energy capture and low-maintenance requirements to a mainstream wind energy marketplace.
