Windspire Vertical Wind Turbine

This years’ 2009 GreenBuild International Conference and Expo drew more than 27,000 architects, developers, and builders & innovators.

1,800 exhibitors showcased their wares, including sustainable materials such as recycled wood flooring; energy and water efficiency products including rainwater harvesting systems and vertical wind turbines, all for building greener, healthier homes, office buildings, schools and healthcare facilities.

From them, we’ve selected our Top 5 Green Building Product for Commercial Buildings & Interiors (incorporated into LEED BD&C or ID&C) 


1.  Sempergreen’s Vegetation Blankets are a beautiful option for green roofing materials with their sedum, or alpine plant, that has the ability to withstand rapid temperature fluctuations, drought, poor soil conditions, snow cover and high wind. You can also have grass and herbs growing in the vegetation blankets.  www.sempergreen.com

2.  Tournesol Siteworks’s TerraScreen Interior Greenwall System  is an easy green wall solution consisting of steel modules of 6” grow pots that connect together giving the appearance of a uniform wall of green foliage. www.tournesolsiteworks.com

3.  Mobile Solar Power Generator is perfect for jobsite power for tools and more with no exhaust, no carbon emissions, no oil changes and best of all, it’s quiet. www.mobilesolarpower.net

4.  The Windspire Vertical Wind Turbine stands 30 feet tall and 4 feet wide and offers propeller-free design and ultra quiet operation. The Windspire currently powers homes, small businesses, schools, museums and more. The turbine includes a high-efficiency generator, integrated inverter, hinged monopole and wireless performance monitor. www.mariahpower.com
