Hover Energy and Task Contract Solutions Partner to Bring the Hover Wind-Powered Microgrid Renewable Energy Solution to the UK

  • Hover Energy and Task Contract Solutions Partner to Bring the Hover Wind-Powered Microgrid Renewable Energy Solution to the United Kingdom

Hover Energy, LLC ("Hover") today announced it has entered into an agreement with Task Contract Solutions Limited ("Task") in which Task will be its exclusive partner in the sale, installation, and support of Hover Wind-Powered Microgrids™ in the United Kingdom.
Hover Energy and Task Contract Solutions partner to bring the Hover Wind-Powered Microgrid™ renewable energy solution to the UK market. Agreement opens the door for companies and government entities to accelerate their transition to renewable energy.

Hover and Task have been collaborating over the past year on several planned installations at exclusive, consequential sites, including projects for the UK Ministry of Defence. This agreement establishes a formal partnership and gives Task exclusive distribution and installation rights for the UK Market.

The Hover Wind-Powered Microgrid™ features a combination of wind and solar energy generation.   The centerpiece of the microgrid is Hover's patented 36kW wind turbine, which is roughly the size of a 10-foot shipping container.  Installed in an array on the windward edge of a building's roof, the system's aerodynamic design draws in and accelerates wind that hits the building.  A direct drive generator reduces friction and lowers the cut-in speed.  An adjoining solar photovoltaic array complements the turbines, generating power during daylight hours.  The energy captured by both sources is directed to an Integrated Energy Management System ("IEMS"), where the energy is combined, conditioned, and converted to three-phase AC power. The IEMS connects directly to the building management system.   Excess power, such as unused power generated at night, can be stored in electrical batteries for later use. The Hover Wind-Powered Microgrid™ has the potential to offset 100% of a building's power consumption when combined with solar photovoltaic technology and electrical battery storage systems.
