New Wind Turbine Design Good for Rural, Urban Environment

Wind power is one of the fastest growing forms of alternative energy in the world. More and more, wind power mills are seen in the countryside, in large wind farms and for the most part, away from city life. But a new form of wind power is now designed to work in an urban environment. VOA producer Zulima Palacio has the story. Mill Arcega narrates.

  1. I invented a breakthrough source of energy, which contradicts the law of conservation of energy. I have a PROOF that there are electrodynamic phenomena which contradict the law of energy conservation. It will cost about $1200 to make a 6 kW generator in mass production. Value of the energy produced yearly about $5400. I am looking for $300 000 for a prototype and for $3M for patents.

  2. Hi,

    Great Video,

    We have a selection of renewable energy courses, with a DIY ethos..

    Why not try ..
    Building your own wind turbine.. or ..
    Build a wind pump to move water from a well to a storage tank

    visit imecofarm for more details.

    Thanks. Eddie

  4. I’ve seen actual scientific studies on wind farms – they almost never kill birds (mostly because birds clearly identify them as moving objects), and even the “loudest” wind farms are barely louder than a whisper. They can’t possibly spin at a dangerously fast speed because they are all equipped with auto-braking mechanisms, and they RELY on the wind for rotational motion, so it’s nonsensical to suggest they could ever become rotationally dangerous. There is no credible opposition to wind power

  5. Hi, Great video. Thanks.

  6. The sooner we put the Giant Oil Monopolies out of business the better. If they can get these priced in the $10,000 range, they’ll take off. Hell, if zoning permits I’ll put them on my houses, (I’m a builder). With most people I know paying $3-$5k / yr for electric. the payback is great at 10 grand.

  7. I like it, but I wonder how much the 9 meter one costs? No doubt it’s 5KUSD or more?
    Makes you wonder how much it costs to produce, compared to how much it sells for.

  8. @Northwesley I’m a fan of decentralization myself, but the same money put into small units will generate a lot less power. In most of the country, there isn’t enough wind to make a windmill worthwhile anyway — or at least anything other than intermittent, very expensive power. Just sticking one of these on your back yard is a poor use of money unless you live in a very windy spot, or you just want a toy to play with, or you just want a “green status symbol” for all to see.

  9. it is very smart ,clean,economic design,i like it…please any one knowes how to contact this company or the Emai address please send it to my because i also have some smart new ideas,,my Email is: karimlink2005@yahoo.com my name is Karim thank you.

  10. We badly need environmental-friendly source of energy. The birds don’t give us that much use.

  11. @resa263 One dead bird in 4 years and its directly on a migration route
    Wow, did they do an autopcy to make sure it was the wind turbine that killed the bird
    Maybe a full out investigation of this is needed. HEADS must roll

  12. It’s not just for rural, urban or countryside anymore, AND the small ones do not affect bird flight. Coming soon to an area near you, it’s the future of personal wind turbines. (For residential use). Environmental (space because I’m breaking this up), graffiti (dot) com (slash) wind then -power/news-own-your-own-wind-coming-soon-area-near-you

  13. @skates9 Bird feeders do not adversely affect a bird’s diet nor do they make birds stop eating natural foods. spend a few hours educating yourself.

  14. @resa263 Ha, ha. I’m they did thorough studies, and found the place to install them where there is the most wind. Unfortunately, birds probably love it too, since the tail wind makes migration easier for them.

  16. they make thease in michigan and i see them going down the road in pieces they are GINORMOUS!!

  17. omg they are beautiful
    and if the subsidies end who gives a fuck the money will stay in america instead of going out of the country for oil

  18. west texas the 4 greatest nation i thougt it was a state fuckn retarded ass moron reporter and yeah wind and solar are taking over if thats gods will

  19. @nomadnametab
    you r rite. Just moved to west from central Texas. Went from a city of over 112,000 to less than 500 people. Beautiful mountains, wide open space. Not for the faint of heart. Only a select few could survive in the west.

  20. This guy who claims to be offended by his neighbors ability to have wind machines on his property, maybe he refuse to have those Wind Turbines on his property, now that his neighbors are making money, he is pissed off he didnt jump on the wind Turbine train, and it left him…

  21. when did you rednecks ever become interested in green tech, i though u idiots were too busy trying to put us blacks back into slavery.

  22. midland is really bland scenery, but east of ft. stockton it is not so bad. if anyone reading this has never been in west texas, let me tell you, there is nothing like it. you have only one town over 10,000 people along I-10 it is impressive, if intimidating in its remoteness. drive from san antonio to el paso and you have covered 1000 km with a population of less than 50,000.

  23. There may be so many of those turbines, but West Texas WILL benefit from the investment in wind energy. A lot of the towns that previously were dying will now find a new lease on life that’s cleaner and safer. Plus, the turbines are also, admittedly, so much fun to look at. ;-)

  24. do you really think that when they throw the big switch on all this stuff yur electric bill is gonna down lol or better yet roflmao its all shakin hands now its all good lol but wait theyll start passin these laws on yu little guys soon ordinances laws taxes it will be so expensive or criminal to have yur own panels or turbine lol and yull say why is elec so expensive theyll say cause were savin the earth lol lol

  25. i like it. Look at my Home Wind Turbine videos, pretty cool system I put on my Home Rooftop. My RoofMill design just won a green design contest. Friends and subscribers welcome.

  26. This is all good – just one or two little trolls who think theyre ugly. Fuck em. Wind baby, wind.

  27. This guy Dan in the purple shirt was probably against the wind turbins, so when he saw others making money, and he aint, now he’s crying fowl…tough shit dude..
