Greenville, SC - In an industry traditionally dominated by men, it is notable that BarberWind Turbines LLC has named Tammy Barber Owner and majority stockholder.
“Under Tammy’s stewardship this past eight years, BarberWind Turbines has flourished,” says Jerry Barber, Chairman of the Board. “During the development stage of our company Tammy was the driving force in meeting our timelines and goals.”
“As we are about to move into the next stage of commercializing our 800kW wind turbine, it’s the perfect time to seat Tammy at the helm,” says Debbie O’Hara, Chief Marketing Officer. Her energy and understanding of the market will be key to our success.”
Ms. Barber, who serves as COO for BarberWind is excited to take on the new role. “Both men and women have their places in renewable energy, says Ms. Barber. “I am proud to be in a position to influence bringing more women into the industry through mentoring and networking. We must be aware of the gender gap and address it.”
About BarberWind Turbines LLC: The BarberWind 800kW wind turbine has been designed for microgrid, stand alone and other distributed generation applications especially those currently dependent on diesel fuel systems like island nations and farms and ranches. It has a built-in lifting system so can be erected without an expensive crane and can be hinged down during the approach of severe weather or a hurricane. The BWT800kW can be shipped in standard containers and, according to a third-party analysis, is the most economical renewable energy solution in the world. For more information visit BarberWind.com
