Where Are The U.S. Wind Projects Located?

Wind is a clean source of renewable energy.  It doesn’t create water or air pollution and can be used to power homes, businesses, schools and even applications such as grinding grain.

There are approximately 1,000 wind projects across the U.S. in most of the 50 states with more land and water turbines planned.

Wondering where to find wind projects in each state? The Wind Project Map from Wind Power Engineering allows you to click on a U.S. state and scroll down the page for a list of projects, the megawatt listing, who manufactured the turbine, who is purchasing the power and more.

BGB Technology supports the wind energy by providing custom slip rings for wind turbines.  Applications include slip rings supplied for hub and pitch control, high power generator applications, Yaw applications and lightening suppression and shaft grounding.

Slip Ring Maintenance

The maintenance requirements of slip rings are highly dependent upon application, especially the frequency of rotations and physical environment. For example, a crane only needs to turn occasionally, even when it’s in operation. The entire crane may therefore reach the end of its service life before slip rings require their much scheduled … Read More...

How Long Do Slip Rings Last?

Slip Rings transfer power or signals across a rotating surface. They are made from electrically conductive material and work in conjunction with brushes. As the slip ring rotates the brushes come in contact with the ring producing power or signals. Slip Ring Housings The ring and brushes are housed within a unit designed to withstand harsh … Read More...

How Much Do Slip Rings Used in Wind Turbines Typically Cost?

A wind turbine converts kinetic energy into electrical energy by using the wind to turn a set of rotor blades around a central axis. This design requires a slip ring, which transmits an electrical current from a stationary to a rotating structure. The slip rings used in wind turbines are typically customized for each turbine, so a slip ring’s cost … Read More...
