About XZERES Corp.
XZERES Corp. is a renewable energy and clean energy technology company that designs, develops, manufactures and markets distributed generation wind power systems as well as power management and power efficiency solutions for the commercial, light industrial and residential markets. The company's grid-connected and off-grid wind turbine systems, which consist of its 2.5kW and 10kW devices and related equipment, are utilized for electrical power generation for applications and markets including residential, micro-grid based rural and island electrification, agricultural, small business and rural electric utility systems, as well as other private, corporate infrastructure and government applications.

The company's wind power systems are focused on distributed energy, where a specific machine's energy output is largely or entirely used on-site where the equipment is installed, as well as grid-connected applications. While many of its customers take advantage of local net-metering rules within the United States and Feed-In Tariffs (to sell power back to the grid) that are available in Europe and internationally, the company's wind power systems are not dependent on transmission needs to carry the energy produced to another location and are therefore well suited for remote electrification, available with or without a battery-coupled solution. XZERES power management and power efficiency solutions are deployed primarily for commercial and light industrial applications, and secondarily for residential usage and target both urban and rural customers.
