The Evance 5kW R9000 small wind turbine has achieved full certification from the Small Wind Turbine Certification Council (SWCC) – the body which certifies turbine models in the USA.

Evance report that the R9000 passed rigorous tests to become one of only four turbines to achieve full certification from the SWCC.

Kevin Parslow, ceo of Evance, said: “It is great news that we have received full SWCC certification for our our R9000 wind turbine. There are R9000 turbines installed across 17 US states, and we’re looking to expand significantly during 2013. Our US customers already know our turbine is highly efficienct and durable, however it’s good to receive independent confirmation from the SWCC.”
