New Style Wind Turbine – specially for low winds.

This wind turbine is quiet, bird friendly and can generate electricity in low wind speeds. That is because it funnels the wind into the center of it. I wonder though what happens in a high wind??

Another style makes use of a so -called Third Member.

Another idea has the sun create a wind in a covered area that rises up a ‘chimney’ – creating electricity as turbines turn.
