Pollywog recently worked with American Resource & Energy to position and name its flagship product for the small wind industry: Ground Control™ self-raising towers.

Ground Control towers are the only nonhydraulic wind tower that can be raised and lowered by just one person–for maintenance on the wind turbine, or to protect the turbine from damaging winds.

This technology effectively creates the new category of self-raising wind towers, enabling the expansion of wind energy into new markets: coastal areas vulnerable to hurricanes/typhoons, areas too remote for dealer servicing and small operators everywhere who lack the crew and heavy equipment needed to raise and lower conventional towers.
