SouthWest WindPower dries up and blows away (pun intended).

As an authorized SWWP dealer, despite no notification,

it came as no surprise to read this article by IREC.

We are taking steps to help ensure we can do our best to keep our customer's turbines up and running despite the company going out of business.

If you have a Skystream turbine in PA, NJ, or MD that needs servicing, we may be able to help!

As a result of the news above concerning SWWP...

Control Alt Energy is now part of the Urban Green Energy partner network.

We recently attended a partner forum in Las Vegas NV to learn about their VAWT. 

We really love the simplicity of the turbine and hope this is the start of a great working relationship with UGE.  Not only did we learn about the eddy, we can now offer solar and wind powered street lighting.


Check out the UGE website and if you are a residential or commercial customer, we would be more than happy to work with you on your renewable energy Project!

By the way, next time you are at Lincoln Financial Field for an Eagles game, Check out the 14 4kW UGE turbines in action or read more about the project by clicking the image below...

Control Alt Energy's Relay for Life team update

EJW - Saturday, May 18th, 2013

Our Relay for life team

would like to thank everyone who supported us this Friday and Saturday during the 2013 Relay for Life event held at the Pottsville Area High School.  The weather held out and everyone had a really great time!

New for our team this year was the 1st Annual "RUNNING FOR HOPE 5K".

A big Thank You goes out to the Pottsville Police and fire police for helping ensure the route was safe for our 79 runners.  I would also like to Thank all our sponsors that helped defray the costs of organizing the race.  Thanks to the following sponsors it allowed our team to earn more money for the American Cancer Society rather than pay for things such as T-Shirts, food and beverages for the runners after the race, timing equipment, etc.:

THE BUTCHER SHOP - (Quality Wholesale & Retail Meats and Provisions) - 17 North Street Minersville, PA 17954 - 570-544-9000

RPH - (Rosenberger Plumbing and Heating, Inc.) -


DUNKIN DONUTS - 3 Westwood Center, Pottsville, PA 17901 - Where smiles are always FREE!

Scentsy - Christal Cason (Independent Scentsy Director) -

CROSSFIT TC UNPLUGGED - (We don't use machines, we build them) - - LEHIGHTON, PA

The Pampered Chef -

31 Bags -

Maroon's Sports Bar and Grill -

Pearl Theatres

RoadID - (It's who I am)

And of course it couldn't be a race without the support of all the runners that signed up and turned out for a beautiful day to run! We thank you for your support as well and hope to see you again next year!  I will post a direct link to the results once available to Pretzel City Sports who managed the event for us.

For me, this was my first ever 5K and while I never was a fan of running unlike my two sons, after having convinced me to run, I was just glad to cross the finish line even if I came in 55 out of 79.

The runners gather for a picture after the race...


Friends and family pictured after the race with those who helped with the event.

It�s a beautiful day, the Sun is Shining on America!

�The Sun provides an inimitable opportunity to work together toward a common vision, it knows no party affiliation. The ability to direct individual accomplishments toward the common good of the nation. It is the fuel that is the giver of life and every form of energy to date as it was in the beginning and will be until our end.� 

I see the light, how about you? - EJW

Just because you don't have a 1/2 acre lot doesn't mean you can't harness the power of the wind.  For smaller lot sizes, we recommend the Swift building attached wind turbine manufactured in part by Cascade Engineering in Grand Rapids MI..

More on the American Recovery and Re-investment Act
(2009 Stimulus Package)

Home wind power now more affordable
On February 17, 2009 President Obama signed into law the American Recovery and Re-investment Act of 2009. With a significant emphasis on renewable energy technology deployment and job expansion, the bill improved upon the 2008 small wind tax credit by removing ?cost caps.? This change allows consumers and small businesses to deduct from their tax liability 30% off the installed cost of a wind turbine. Additionally, businesses will have the option of receiving their credit in the form of a cash grant.
