Why Wind Turbine Certification Matters.

 

 

 

 

 

 

XZERES Wind wants our customers to know our products are independently tested and certified around the world.

 Why? Simply because we want you to know we make products that are safe and perform as expected. XZERES Wind worked with other small wind turbine manufacturers to establish standards to protect customers from false claims and misleading marketing, and we believe these steps have helped the entire industry. Independent certification ensures our products produce as much energy as we claim and operate safely, and in many cases makes our systems eligible for government incentive programs that benefit consumers. So what does certification mean for you?
