Wind & Solar

The fact that for over a decade, wind has been the world's fastest growing energy source adds to the continued profit potential. The amount of turbines installed has been growing at 20% - 30% year on year for the past five years, if growth trends continue at this pace, wind capacity will double about every three or four years, giving investors a continued and growing profit stream. The reason there will be a sustained growth is simple, from all the available renewable technologies, wind is the most cost-effective in comparison to fossil-fuelled power generation. Wind powers longevity will be assured due to the long term demand for renewable energy and will be increasingly driven by declining fossil fuel sources and carbon reduction policies.


Solar has over the years become a reliable and proven technology. For instance there are solar systems that were installed in the 1970s that are not only still producing power,but have also lasted far beyond their warranties. Solar is not a new technology, but major leaps in recent years have made new systems even more reliable. Solar is in fact growing at an amazing rate, for example approximately 66% of the worlds installed solar power capacity has been installed in the past 3 years. With the world’s total installed capacity, driven by the ever increasing advances in nanotechnology projected to double year on year, and according to some predictions, will be able to supply the world’s energy demands in less than twenty years.

Renewable Energy
  • Biomass: Is a fuel, such as biogas or biodiesel that is produced from renewable resources like vegetable oils and treated industrial wastes.
  • Fuel Cells: A fuel cell is a device that generates electricity by creating a chemical reaction. Every fuel cell has two electrodes, one positive and one negative, these are called the anode and cathode. The reactions that produce electricity take place at the electrodes.
  • Geothermal: Geothermal energy is thermal energy that is generated by and stored in the Earth. This energy source can be used in many ways, from large and complex power stations to small and comparably simple pumping systems. This heat energy, can be found almost anywhere such as remote deep wells in Indonesia.
  • Hydro-electric: Uses the power of water currents and waves to generate electric power. Normally, hydro-electric power is generated by guiding water flow through a turbine, where the water causes fans to turn, creating the force needed to drive an electric generator.
  • Solar: Solar energy is the cleanest and most abundant renewable energy source available. Solar panel electricity systems, also known as solar photovoltaic’s (PV), capture the sun's energy using photovoltaic cells. These cells don't actually need direct sunlight to work, they are still able to generate some electricity on a cloudy day. The cells convert the sunlight into electricity.
  • Solar Thermal: Solar thermal energy is the use of solar energy to produce heat. Solar thermal power generation works virtually the same as power gained by burning using fossil fuels, but rather than using steam produced from the burning of fossil fuels, the steam is produced by the heat collected from sunlight.
  • Wind: We have been harnessing the wind's energy for hundreds of years and are now turning that resource into electricity. In simple terms a wind turbine operate on a basic principle. The energy the wind provides turns two or three propeller-like blades around a rotor. The rotor is connected to a main shaft, which in turn spins a generator creating electricity. Wind is a resource that isn’t going to die out and has proved to be invaluable in the past and will continue to prove so in the future.
In the current economic climate investing in wind and solar are two of the few areas where a secure long-term income is available and where the returns can be extremely attractive. Wind and the sun’s rays are free and there for the taking, the cost of producing energy through wind and sun has dropped significantly in recent years and is gaining in popularity, as it does it will become more and more affordable. Today the industry is growing strongly and investors are becoming more attuned to the benefits of an investment in wind and solar.
Investing in solar is not the same as investing in stock. When you invest in a business, you can’t possibly know for sure how successful that company will be. When you’ve invested in solar projects, you’re buying into a tangible asset. Solar is an asset that depends on a proven technology using the sun’s rays that we know will keep shining on it. That means the asset is going produce revenue right away, and to keep producing it until the sun’s rays no longer shine.
So when you put your hard earned money in solar, you’re not investing in the latest gadget or fad, you’re investing in a proven technology that ticks all the right boxes. Let’s face it, if the sun stops shining our problems will be much bigger than the safety of our investments. Lucky enough it is predicted that the sun will continue to shine for another 5 billion years. We all expect to recoup and profit from our investment in Solar well before then.
The age of responsible energy production and consumption is now.

This is why Trumantech is at the forefront of financing and developing Wind and Solar Energy. Unlike the use of coal or oil, it is a "clean" energy generated from the wind and sun and doesn't produce pollutants or require any harmful chemicals.
