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.
