About Willow Springs International
Willow Springs International Motorsports Park is located in Willow Springs near Rosamond and Lancaster, California, and is about an hour north of Los Angeles. It is a historic race track, in existence more than fifty years. Construction of the track began in 1952, with the inaugural first race held on November 23, 1953. The main track is a challenging 2.5-mile (4.0 km) long road course that is unchanged from its original 1953 configuration. The interesting elevation changes and high average speeds make it a favorite of many road racing drivers.
Efforts by fans resulted in the State of California declaring Willow Springs International Raceway a California Point of Historical Interest, in 1996.
Willow Springs Raceway provides family entertainment for motorsports aficionados the world over. It is often used as a film location and is also rented to individuals and teams for training and/or enjoyment.
Chris Huth, General Manager of Willow Spring commented, “Working at Willow Springs International Raceway for over fifty years, I’ve witnessed an amazing advancement in racing technology. Everything gets lighter, smaller, faster, more efficient and more reliable. The same thing has happened with electronics. All our devices are smaller, better and, unlike racing, way less expensive. I have looked into solar and wind energy for my facility over the years, but knew that it would follow the same pattern. My patience paid off when I saw the Sauer Energy WindCutter. It’s exactly what I had in mind. I am proud to be the first motorsports facility with Sauer Energy’s technology producing my electricity.”
“This is a superb opportunity for both SEI and the Raceway. The Raceway welcomes in excess of 2 million visitors per year. Its location has ideal wind speeds, so it should be able to produce at optimum. We are most enthusiastic about this opportunity. This is the first turbine we are installing at a Southern California desert community attraction.
Our vision is coming together for immersion into the market and the WindCutter’s certification validation will singularly set us apart from the competition. We are working hard to finalize sales and I think everyone will be satisfied with the bottom-line results,” remarked Dieter Sauer, CEO and President of Sauer Energy.
As installation plans are being concluded, SEI is crossing over the threshold into bringing its disruptive technology features in renewable energy solutions to market. SEI will let everyone know when this turbine is fully installed and operational. The public is welcome to see it working at Willow Springs during operating hours.
As promised, Sauer Energy is engaged in the mass production of its WindCutter turbine. Despite the fact that SEI’s full-scale manufacturing is at the outset, plans are already in place to meet the qualifications of ISO 9000 standards. Quality control will ensure consistency, effectiveness and efficiency. SEI strives to continually improve performance and reliability, which can translate into increased profits.
The WindCutter is synonymous with sustainable and reliable performance. Its design contributes to substantial energy savings, which translates to simplicity, measurability and transparency, for the benefit of consumers and businesses alike.
About Sauer Energy Inc.
Sauer Energy Inc. is a technology developer and manufacturer focused on the emerging renewable energy market. SEI’s first offering, the WindCutter, is based on the Darrieus principal and has five airfoil blades that use the principle of lift to rotate the shaft and is pole mounted only. Sold as a hybrid system, including solar and energy storage capability, our systems can offer the ability to structure on-grid or off-grid configurations.
SEI’s technology is remarkable as it requires so few parts. This means a lower manufacturing cost, more efficient operation, lower maintenance (fewer parts = less chance of malfunction), and greater power generation. This will provide SEI with a new direction for wind capture, making it easier to scale from residential, to powering a small community — all the way up to large industrial facilities. The market opportunity for this new, self-contained, innovative technology is unlimited and growing rapidly.
With several patents in place and many more pending, SEI looks forward to delivering on its promises for commercialization, and it is also aggressively moving toward a financial return on its investments. To learn more about Sauer Energy, please visit: www.SauerEnergy.com
