I have a feeling they're going make far more money selling windmills than they ever would licensing it to the US government. The market for this sort of thing is going to be huge.

Wow, I want some too!

They don't have a big factory yet churning them out but when they do, I can't wait!

I live in the desert and get lots of high winds. There are a couple of U.S. companies already which make these roof-top models. We investigated them but eventually decided against a purchase. But my partner observed one in action at a neighbor's home. It worked well but the problem was that birds would fly into it, both killing the birds and damaging the unit. The home owner loved being "off grid".

This one sounds interesting. Thank you.

My husband and I have great bird watching here on the mountain, dozens of species come and go, winter and summer. Migration season, we see hundreds of birds who use our extensive woods/fields and streams to graze on their way north or south. Butterflies do this, too.


We are very concerned about harming them, too. This is why I loved this news story. We are waiting on the wind generators only because the technology is rapidly improving.

Dear Elaine, That little ring does more than just damp sound [ unless I hypothesise wrong]. It performs a function similar to the outer shroud on a ducted turbofan redirecting the bladetip vortices back at the blade bodies increasing efficency and incidentially making the whole thing more visible to the wild life. In other words more bird friendly. I never thought of that approach, smacks of genious. Like the way he runs his company.

The two men running that company are for real. We can hope they will prosper and the price come down.
