We are happy to announce a strong interest from Asgaard Farm and Dairy in Au Sable Forks, NY in becoming our second customer. The former home of artist, writer, adventurer and political activist Rockwell Kent (1882-1971), Asgaard Farm not only served as the inspiration for many of Kent’s paintings, but was also a working dairy farm. David Brunner and Rhonda Butler acquired the farm in 1988. After working several years to restore the land and buildings, they put the farm back into production in 2003.
Asgaard is a diversified family farm with a goat dairy and creamery at its core. Revolving around these activities are grass-fed and grass-finished beef together with pastured pork, poultry and eggs. For more details, check them out at http://www.asgaardfarm.com or stop by and visit!

Great meeting with the campus and students yesterday to kickoff the install of Turbine #1! Looking forward to working with the all the student volunteers and campus personnel to get the turbine up and running!
Clarkson University has officially agreed to purchase a DTI 3.0 unit from us for their campus! Always nice to see a public announcement from a buyer so we figured we might as well share their Facebook post.
Our first customer, Clarkson University, has committed to purchasing a turbine for their campus! Needless to say, we are thrilled and will be updating as installation begins with Turbine 1.
Combined Energies of Latham, NY, has announced they will collaborate with DTI to develop the power electronics associated with their new ducted turbine unit. Their greater than 95% patented conversion efficiency DC-DC converter topology, is a low cost, high efficiency, passively cooled platform that will significantly improve the economics and performance of the turbine installations.
The first quarter section for the duct has been produced! Very happy with our partner Empire Fiberglass!
A mock-up/assembly area for the turbine install is complete!
Once the duct fab is finished, installation set-up and fixture location can be completed here before being installed outside at the test sites with the actual blades.
