Renewable energy technologies have been such a disappointment. They are flawed and have not evolved to meet the need.

The principle behind capturing wind energy is simple: to capture more energy, intercept more wind. Traditional alternatives do this by increasing the size of the device's blades.

Today's Technology

Underperforming

The more massive the blades, the more wind it takes to get them moving and the more vulnerable they become to extreme weather. As a result, they are “tuned” to a very narrow bandwidth of wind.

Incompatible

Large blades create noise, become reliability risks, endanger wildlife and create greater shadow flicker. They pollute the view-scape and make an indelible imprint on the environment. And so we relegate them to remote, open areas.

Vulnerable

Relegation to remote areas requires expensive transmission infrastructure to transport the power back to the community. This greatly increases the cost of implementation and is itself is vulnerable to extreme weather and difficult to maintain.

Our Solution: Wind Reimagined

The real promise of wind power lays in the metropolitan wind - it’s an enormous untapped resource.  But we have been beholden to obsolete propeller based technology for too long and it is unable to tap into this vast resource. We need to reimagine Wind Energy.  CBC Wind Energy has done just that.

A 5kW HIPS Wind Energy System barely noticeable in this built environment

Survives Wind Speeds as High as 200 MPH

Most turbines have an enormous number of moving parts: transmission gears, braking, blade pitch controls and so on. All of these are parts that will wear out, cause downtime and lost revenue, and eat into your power generation revenue.

The enclosure is carefully constructed with durable, corrosion resistant materials to survive wind speeds well above a category 5 hurricane.

The Hidden In Plain Sight Wind Energy System is built to be fault tolerant and uses redundant power generators to ensure you're able to generate energy after a storm.

Twice as Many kWh Compared to Other Renewable Energy

Not all wind technologies are equal. Some wind turbines require a lot of wind just to start spinning, or they need a lot of energy to keep them moving. That loss means your investment is not paying off.

CBC’s Hidden In Plain Sight™ Wind Energy System intercepts a large amount of wind and concentrates that power to a lightweight turbine in the center. As a result, the system starts in lighter winds and keeps spinning, meaning less wind energy is needed to spin the turbine and more wind energy is converted to electricity.

Fraction of the Footprint of Traditional Turbines

Many sites have abundant wind, but are not compatible with traditional wind turbines. Hidden In Plain Sight™ Wind Energy Systems can harvest wind where traditional wind turbines cannot.

Solar farms require sprawling amounts of acreage to generate meaningful amounts of power.  Traditional wind turbines require equally large fall radius’ to maintain a safety zone around the equipment.
The HIPS Wind Energy System is a stationary structure that can be building mounted.  No sprawl or fall radius required.  The exceptional efficiency of our design results in a 10x improvement in kWh / sq ft.  
Rated wind speeds start at 12 mph, and can be built to cut in as low as 5 mph, perfect for lower wind environments, or to accomplish storm resiliency.

Even in higher wind environments our technology can provide power in winds speeds up to 100 mph.
The HIPS Wind Energy System can also be built on your property to remove the reliance on power lines and transmission requirements. They inconspicuously mount to commercial rooftops resulting in fewer neighbor objections.

Up to 40% Lower Cost Per kWh

Wind projects can be complex. Design challenges and community interests mean that surviving the permitting process is an accomplishment in itself. Installation and construction of some turbines are so complicated that project delays are inevitable. Delays, mistakes, change orders - they all cost money.

The faster you can get your equipment up and running, the better your return. Hidden In Plain Sight technology mitigates neighbors’ objections to streamline the permitting process and its design simplifies installation.

The Solution For Storms

Affordable, Reliable and Resilient

During the Storm

The HIPS Wind Energy System is built to survive the worst storms to ensure your investment isn't lost.

  • The fortified enclosure can survive 200 mph winds, much higher than a category 5 hurricane.

  • Provides power during storms in wind speeds up to 100 mph.

  • When powerlines are compromised the HIPS Wind Energy System will be generating power directly to you.

After the Storm

Produces energy through critical conditions.

  • Provides power for communications, relief efforts and emergency responders.

  • The HIPS Wind Energy System is capable of running during partial system failure thanks to the fault tolerant and redundant generators.

  • The HIPS Investment Protection Program extended warranty and service plan is available to protect your investment for the future.

  • The system is also simple to maintain and service, meaning you will be generating full power much sooner after a failure.
