Holland High Lift has commissioned a 25-kilowatt wind turbine at its facility in East Bethany, N.Y. The turbine was installed by Buffalo Renewables of Amherst, N.Y. The clean energy from this turbine will be used to run the company’s offices, repair shop, and to recharge the portion of its rental equipment fleet that is battery charged.
“These systems use net metering which means on windy days when we make an energy surplus that electricity gets sent to National Grid for others to use and this gives us a credit of electricity from the grid for days with little or no wind,” said a Holland Lift official. “Going forward this turbine should provide for the majority of our electricity needs.”
Holland High Lift is an aerial focused sales and rental company, in business since 1982. It sells, services, rents and stocks parts for nearly all makes and models of mobile elevating work platforms. It has equipment manufactured by Grove, Genie, Snorkel, JLG, Lull, Terex, MEC, SkyTrak, Takeuchi and more. It has a large inventory of parts.
