    Join Kingston's sustainable energy community at this free meeting featuring a presentation by a sustainable energy expert, introductions, sector news, networking, and refreshments.

    Presenter:  Christa Wallbridge, The Power Collective.  

    Christa Wallbridge is the CEO and President of The Power Collective Inc. (TPC), a Canadian green technology company located in Kingston, Ontario. TPC is focussed on providing affordable renewable energy solutions that benefit communities and effectively protect the environment. Currently, TPC manufactures the patented and award-winning RidgeBlade micro wind turbine system.

    The Power Collective Inc. (TPC) is a Canadian green technology company manufacturing the patented and award-winning technology RidgeBlade®, an unique micro-generation wind turbine for residential and commercial rooftops offering a simple and effective way for harnessing wind power.


    The RidgeBlade® Wind Turbine is an innovative, simple and effective way of harnessing wind power to produce electricity.

    The RidgeBlade® adopts an entirely new design philosophy and addresses many of the drawbacks associated with Solar PV and traditional wind turbines.

    Efficient in low to high wind speeds and able to operate bidirectionally in turbulent air environments, the system is safe from over-speeding in storms, is quiet and vibration-free, and lies low along the roof ridge for low visual impact. A wind-solar hybrid system has been designed for use on flat-roofed buildings for an optimal 24-hour a day power generation solution. Both systems can be used in grid-tied, off-grid, and micro-grid configurations.
