IMPRESSIVE...

... scribbling. A wee bit pretentious, maybe.

Wonder how it'll hold up in a hurricane, or don't they get any there? The, agree, what about the birds and those blades? Couldn't they have gone for the bladeless turbine...Do wish them luck.

It's being tested for the next year - fewer moving parts, less maintenance, more reliable and cost effective… if all proves true, this will be progress in green energy.
