“Having our first turbine sold into the U.S. market successfully connected to the grid and generating electricity is a significant milestone for AAER,” said Dave Gagnon, president and chief executive officer of AAER. “It provides important validation of both our technology and manufacturing capabilities, while also giving us a high-profile opportunity to showcase our product to potential customers in the southwestern U.S. We believe this heightened visibility will increase our profile in California and could potentially have a positive impact on our sales pipeline going forward.”
