In Macomb Illinois, a local couple, Kim Sedgwick and Carl Pershing were seeking a renewable energy system to power the cabin at Sedgwick’s nature preserve in southern McDonough County. Kim was inspired after touring homes in New Mexico and learning from her Amish neighbors.
The couple found WindEnergy7.com and began talking about the systems and learning all about the company’s wind/solar hybrid technology. Pershing and Sedgwick became WindEnergy7 dealers after investing in their own wind/solar system because they could see what importance the new technology would be to people all over the US. They wanted to get involved and help others in their area do what they had done.
Energy rates and carbon emissions are rising, Kim and Carl are combating both by offering an alternative to conventional home power supply.
Their new business, “It’s a Breeze”, is helping others to develop personal energy security for their homes and families. The business is located at 215 S. Ward St. in Macomb, Illinois. “It’s a Breeze” is now a dealer for WindEnergy7 LLC and has a territory of 6 counties in Illinois, McDonough, Schuyler, Warren, Fulton, Henderson and Hancock Counties.
WindEnergy7 LLC, a green energy company from Ohio has helped dozens of people to become dealers across the united states and has begun to set up dealers internationally now. Samuel Hargis, the founder of WindEnergy7 is an inventor, designer, and manufacturer of home wind/solar hybrid energy systems. His company, WindEnergy7 LLC holds the patent pending inventions that make rooftop wind turbines possible.
Before WindEnergy7 invented the new method and apparatus, all rooftop turbines had failed because of harsh vibration and noise to the home. Customers have found the systems to be easy to install and operate. Customers quickly notice how people are so interested to buy systems, thus WindEnergy7 created an owner/dealer opportunity. Owners of the systems, like the couple in Macomb Illinois can get a territory and make money helping others with residential wind/solar systems. Owner/dealers from Hawaii to Massachusetts have begun selling wind/solar hybrid systems into their communities.
These systems are designed for use off the electrical grid or as a supplement to grid power. Pershing said selling the turbines and panels as a cooperative system makes green energy more accessible to average homeowners.
These systems are developed to be affordable for middle class homeowners. “It all boils down to how many kilowatts a month you use for your home,” said Pershing. “You can add more solar panels or put up to three turbines on your house to get the amount of power you want.”
One of the major benefits of acquiring the wind/solar system is the 30 percent federal tax credit and more affordable energy bills. A green energy system raises your property value without raising your property taxes.
Sedgwick said “I knew there had to be a happy medium between them not using electricity at all and us not wanting to take from the earth, This is it.”
The payback period for the system is about five to seven years for customers who remain on the grid. Sedgwick said independence from the power company is enough payback for her. “I consider this freedom,” said Sedgwick.
The inventor of the systems began developing them solely as a economic benefit for himself. “In Ohio, our energy costs were steadily going up. I set out to develop a system that would work for any middleclass home.” said Hargis. “I knew it had to be able to pay for itself in a few years and have a decent price point. I developed a really heavy duty state of the art system that is designed to run beyond 30 years. That’s why there are so many stainless steel parts inside the turbine and the roof mount is such heavy duty steel. You can tell at a glance that our system is more elegant and durable than anything else in the marketplace. We are very proud of the systems, their success, and how well all the dealers have gotten at selling and servicing, to help others get involved.”
