BarberWind Turbines, a Greenville, SC-based wind technology company, raised $200k funding.
SCRA Technology Ventures‘ SC Launch program made the investment.
BarberWind Turbines designs, manufactures, constructs and maintains wind energy assets. The company’s wind turbine, which will be manufactured in Upstate South Carolina, has been engineered to fit the needs of industrial parks and data centers, small communities, farms and ranches, water treatment plants, island nations, amusement parks, sports arenas, and other commercial complexes that require a greener, more cost effective means of supplying electricity. It ships from the manufacturer in five 40 foot containers and does not require a heavy lift crane for assembly or maintenance, allowing it to be used in remote, high-wind locations like the Caribbean and Central America.
