World records are an exciting business! Of the books and magazines documenting the world’s greatest achievements, by far the most popular, prestigious and prolific awarding body is the Guinness Book of World Records. Started in 1955 this book has had a large influence on popular culture and showing the world what great achievements have been made that year! It would truly be a great honour and privilege to be a part of this great book. As a leading company in the domestic wind turbine business, TESUP has decided to step up to the occasion! This year has been marked by the TESUP application to the Guinness Book of World Records under the self proposed category of: Best-selling household wind turbines!
Renewable energy generation records
TESUP has decided to apply this year based on its newly announced milestone. With the constantly increasing number of TESUP customers around the world using their wind turbines to generate electricity, the combined total potential power generation will soon reach over 219,000,000 kWh annual generation! This number is by no means small, with an average household using 4,500 kWh per year. Meaning that these turbines, all in all, could potentially generate enough electricity to power 48,600 homes! With all these turbines producing power it's clear to see that there are lots of TESUP turbines all over the world!
To set the scene a little here are some examples of some great eco friendly records featured on the Guinness book of world records website:
Most trees planted in one hour: with the increasing popularity of planting trees to offset carbon emissions this is a great record showing the commitment of people to reforesting the globe! This record is held by the Turkish Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry for planting an amazing 303,150 trees in a single location! This was achieved in Çorum Celilkırı on the 11th of
November 2019, surely making the area much more
Pollution, trees and other inspiring news
Plastic pollution is a big problem the world over, leading to pollution of the world’s oceans, endangerment of wildlife and even human food source contamination. This next record hoped to tackle this partially by collecting the most plastic bottles for recycling over the space of 12 hours! By recycling a single plastic bottle you can save enough energy to power a lightbulb for three hours or more! It is amazing then that the citizens of Bangalore, India collected an astounding 33,355.55 kg of plastic bottles to be recycled!
And finally, the largest tree hugging event took place in the Republic of Korea (also known as South Korea) at the Korea National Arboretum in Pocheon, Gyeonggi. This event marked an incredible 1,200 people showing up to the Arboretum to simply hug a tree! This is a very fun record! TESUP is looking to set a more serious record however, with the current worldwide threats to the climate, growing the renewable energy sector is of utmost importance. Recognising renewable energy related records is a great way for Guinness World Records to encourage interest and development in the sector!
TESUP hopes this record application shows the company’s commitment to being in the forefront of the renewable energy sector, being an example for others to follow and making a difference in the world!
