Small Wind Certification Council Issues First Turbine Certifications

January 16, 2012

The Small Wind Certification Council (SWCC) issued its first two full certifications and consumer labels to the Bergey Windpower Excel 10 and the Southwest Windpower Skystream 3.7. SWCC expects to issue more full certifications in the coming months, as more incentive programs initiate certification requirements. Sixteen of the remaining 27 turbine models under contract to pursue SWCC certification have either started or completed testing. To be granted full SWCC certification, turbines must meet the full requirements of the American Wind Energy Association Small Wind Turbine Performance and Safety Standard and complete the SWCC review process.
