Home Energy and Tele2 Estonia Agree to a Pilot Program for Base Stations (2021)

As part of their ongoing commitment to the environment and recent legislative changes in Estonia, Tele2 will be partnering with Home Energy to deploy a hybrid (wind and solar) solution to be the source of backup power for their Loobu base station.

“Unlike generators, our solution is unique because of its power generating capacity, electricity cost saving, environmental benefits. ” said Andy King.

The trial is set to begin deployment in April of this year.

First Customer Sale of the V500 Energy Ball (2019)

Keewatin Patricia District School Board in Northern Ontario will be the first customer to deploy Home Energy’s new V500 Energy Ball.

Two area high schools, Red Lake High School and Sioux Lookout High School, will be using a hybrid wind and solar installation to provide parking lot lighting, energy savings, a practical environmental application and a source for learning as part of the science curriculum.

Projects are scheduled for later in 2018.

New Winch Option Makes Installation Easier Than Ever (2018)

In our continued effort to simplify the installation process for our Energy Ball, Home Energy has created a winch which enable the turbine to be raised and lowered with ease.

This new option will allow our customers, do-it-yourself and professionals, to speed up the installation process without the need for heavy and expensive equipment. Just assemble, fasten and winch into place with a self-guided mechanism which securely locks the Energy Ball into place.

2nd Generation Energy Ball (2018)

Home Energy is pleased to announce the second-generation Energy Ball is commercially available.   The V500 now replaces the V100 Energy Ball.

We made two significant changes.  The first, is we increased the swept area of the blades which resulted in a 30% increase in output in the mid-range of the power curve.

The second is we simplified the connection by removing the yaw (swing arm) enabling a direct connection between the pole and Energy Ball.

The sum of these changes enables greater savings for customers and a more simplified installation.

Simcoe County District School Board

Toronto, Ontario – May 5, 2015 – Home Energy Renewables Inc. (HER) and the Simcoe Country District School Board (SCDSB) are pleased to announce that Elmvale District High School (EDHS) will be the pilot site for a renewable energy project to enhance curriculum delivery.  Though the curriculum links are widespread, this project will support science and technology programs with authentic and real-time applications for students. An Energy Ball (wind turbine) will be erected on a 15m pole which will support the Energy Ball, two solar panels and storage batteries needed to power a parking lot light. Students will be able to monitor the energy output through a monitor located in the main hallway in the school.

“We are very pleased to be participating in the project. Renewable energy sources are a critical part of our future and I can’t think of a better place than in the hands of students to guide us into this next evolution of renewable energy production.” said Andy King, President of HER.

“The SCDSB is very excited to be part of this pilot project with HER. The students and staff proposed this idea as a way to enhance learning across the curriculum, and we are proud to further support their learning,” said Steve Parker, Manager of Design & Construction for the SCDSB.

“To have this renewable energy project installed at Elmvale District High School is tremendous, and will provide learning opportunities that extend well beyond our classrooms.  We have purposefully located the Energy Ball and its monitoring system in a well-travelled area of our school site to encourage curiosity and interest by all,” said Charlene Scime, Principal.  ”Our entire school community is looking forward to the enhanced learning that will come from having this solar and turbine generator at EDHS.”

The project will begin in late summer and be ready for the start of the 2015/2016 school year.
