Socially-responsible asphalt manufacturer Green Asphalt will be the first company in the United States to install Alpha 311 ground-breaking vertical-axis wind turbines.
Green Asphalt is based in New York City, and manufactures 100% recycled asphalt using reclaimed material, and specialises in green infrastructure and development projects.
The company has ordered 54 turbines, which can generate enough power to meet the energy needs of 43 average American homes.
The power generated by these compact, yet powerful, turbines will be for lighting, asphalt production and Green Asphalt’s recycling operation. The units will be placed on rooftops, alongside a new bulkhead and along the plant’s perimeter wall.
The deal comes hot on the heels of the announcement that London’s iconic O2 Arena will be the first venue in the world to install Alpha 311’s unique turbines.
The turbines will be installed at Green Asphalt’s NYC plant in summer 2021.
