Win a Vespa!.. from a Home Wind Turbine Company

October 17th, 2011 by  

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Sauer Energy. All opinions are 100% mine.

I’ve written about Sauer Energy a number of times over the years. About a year ago, the company released a new vertical-axis wind turbine with a unique design to improve the efficiency of this small-scale, clean power option.

With energy prices continually rising (causing not only people’s transportation and electricity bills to rise, but also the price of food and goods), more and more people are turning to clean energy options like this that use free fuel.

It’s just common sense.

As I wrote recently (in two pieces), the small-wind-turbine market has been growing fast. In 2010, the small wind turbine market grew more than in any other year, growing by 26%. Furthermore, as I just wrote a couple weeks ago, a study from Pike Research projects that, by 2015, the market will grow from 50MW to 152MW. Impressive growth.


Bringing more attention to the small-wind-turbine market in an innovative way, Sauer Energy is now hosting a contest to win a a Vespa (model LX 50 4V)! Would love to win one of those little green (relatively speaking) machines. You have an opportunity to do so, of course.

Win a Vespa by doing at least one of the following:


  1. Leave a comment on this post saying which color Vespa you would choose if you win or
  2. Tweet the following message: “I can feel the #WIND flying through my hair when I cruise around on my Vespa! Thanks http://bit.ly/SauerEnergy!

For more, official contest rules are linked above. Good luck! (Wish I was eligible to participate!)
