In the following excerpt from the Alternative Energy & Utilities Report, the Chairman of the Board for Juhl Energy discusses the outlook for his company for investors:
TWST: In March, you changed the company's name from Juhl Wind to Juhl Energy. Does that name change represent a shift in your strategic focus?
Mr. Juhl: It doesn't really change our strategic focus. We've always been focused on community-based and distributed energy. And we've recently acquired an engineering firm that is doing things like biomass, cogeneration, microgrid and larger power plant substation work. Over the years, I've developed a system called SolarBank, which uses solar power and storage for homes and small businesses. The system allows a home or business to use solar power, but still be tied to the grid and have backup power supply in the event the grid goes down. And so we've just moved to a broad scope of renewable energy assets for our customers. We're doing so much more than wind that we just felt it was prudent to have that reflected in the parent company's name.
I've been doing solar for quite a few years even before we went public, but until just recently, when the solar PVs became cost-effective to where it can be done on a larger scale, and it's just becoming a bigger part of our business. We've also developed a system that's called the SolarWind hybrid, which uses commercial-scale wind and commercial-scale solar together to deliver scale power to the distribution system; it's basically designed for larger businesses or municipal utilities. And so the name just reflects the company's growing, expanding business models in different renewable energy technologies.
TWST: Can you tell us about Juhl's involvement in the distributed renewable energy marketplace?
