Bergey Windpower Co.
The establishment of Bergey Windpower Co. (BWC) has its origins in research activities at the University of Oklahoma dating back to 1970. These activities included feasibility studies, consultation to the original NSF/ERDA wind program, and the construction of three experimental wind turbines.
BWC’s primary manufacturing facility is a 23,000 ft factory in Norman, Oklahoma. BWC also has a subsidiary, Beijing Bergey Windpower Co., in China with an office in downtown Beijing and a factory in the outskirts. Bergey wind turbines are sold directly and through a national and international network of authorized dealers. BWC personnel have provided supervisory and training services throughout the world and BWC has conducted numerous factory training schools covering system design, installation, and support.
BWC provides complete design, supply, and installation services for hybrid power systems utilizing wind turbines, diesel generators and photovoltaic arrays.
BWC has been a member of the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) since 1978. BWC is also a member of numerous state renewable energy associations. In 1992 BWC was recognized by AWEA “For outstanding accomplishment in developing international markets for small wind turbine technology.”
BWC has received two national design awards from the Society of the Plastics Industry for its fiberglass rotor blades. BWC’s wind turbines have been featured in Time, Life, Popular Science, Design News, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, and USA Today.
