Building Green from the Heart of Nature
The Green Money Journal’s summer 2010 issue contains an article authored by Joel Goldblatt, president of Bluenergy Solarwind, Inc. Mr. Goldblatt is a serial entrepreneur in renewable energies, and his article Building Green from the Heart of Nature describes his experiences and the role that angel investors play in growing new companies. Describing his previous company LightPath, Mr. Goldblatt wrote “…I realize that the magic of our adventure was not the real invention of the GRADIUM® technology or even the successful IPO of our company. Rather it was the dozens of investors and supporters who shared a common vision and drive to perfect a technology that would make solar-generated electricity more accessible to everyone. “
His current venture, Bluenergy Solarwind, Inc., will manufacture both a wind-only turbine and the Solarwind™ turbine – a unique hybrid combining solar and wind into one unit generating electricity on-site. Bluenergy Solarwind will create 30 new manufacturing jobs and hundreds of indirect jobs for installation and operations, and each turbine installed will generate clean electricity for the owner’s on-site use. As an entrepreneur, Mr. Goldblatt states that Bluenergy Solarwind demonstrates three key factors for a green future: sustainable design, corporate social responsibility, and the evolution for new infrastructures that enable local market , economy and product growth.
