Wind Energy

As a result of technological innovation, increased wind turbine production and performance are effectively driving down costs and enabling development in lower wind speed regions. PPG plays an integral part, with advanced coatings and fiber glass that allow for the design of taller towers and turbines with lighter, longer blades—some exceeding the wingspan of the largest commercial jets. PPG has been providing innovative solutions to the wind industry since its inception, and we’ll continue to lead the way into the future.
