Unobtrusive and safe for wildlife and out-produces similarly name-plate-rated solar and wind turbine technology.Our Solution
Hidden In Plain Sight Wind Energy System (HIPS) is the new standard for renewable energy technology. Providing high-performing wind energy solutions that survive environmental extremes and produces energy through critical conditions, CBC is a leader in responsible wind energy and technology.
CBC Wind Energy’s Hidden In Plain Sight (HIPS) technology is built to withstand wind speeds as high as 200 mph. The fortified enclosure is made to withstand the worst storms and our redundant generator system provides a level of fault tolerance not found in other systems.
CBC Wind Energy’s HIPS technology produces more than twice the power as similarly rated solar and wind technologies. We reach rated power at lower wind speeds and produce full power at higher wind speeds allowing us to capitalize on wind energy other technologies pass by.
HIPS Wind Energy is a silent operating system that delivers energy right to your place of business with an architectural appearance. Our systems are unobtrusive and blend with the urban environment.
The estimated cost of power with the HIPS technology is $0.096/kWh while traditional wind turbines cost $0.153/kWh.
Revolutionary approach to wind energy capture
CBC Wind Energy’s HIPS Technology features a stationary wind concentrating enclosure. The sails of the enclosure intercept the wind, create a vortex and focus its energy in a chamber at the center of the enclosure.
At the center of our enclosure is a chamber housing the rotor. The chamber dynamically changes size and shape responding to ambient wind speed and direction, optimizing air flow and power production.
Next Generation Rotor
Coupled with the chamber is our revolutionary, lightweight high performance rotor. Because we use an enclosure, our rotor can be lighter and therefore start at lower wind speeds. Since it’s supported in the enclosure, it can be suspended from both top and bottom, independent from the generator systems and the rotor can drive multiple redundant generators. Bottom line - unparalleled stability resulting in unmatched reliability.
