WindSpire wind generator - runs silently

Green Machine: Wind farms make like a fish

Inspired by the turbulence created by fish schools, a group of aeronautical engineers in 2010 were testing whether it's possible to position wind turbines so that they help each other – and so boost a farm's energy output. (read more...)

Mariah Power of Reno Nevada has introduced a new wind generator called the Windspire.

Standing at only 30 foot and with a footprint of 2 foot in diameter, makes this wind generator an attractive option for those living in a more confined area. The big plus for me is it doesn’t take a crane to put the Windspire up nor does it require guide wires. The Windspire is hinged so you can assemble it on the ground then raised with the use of a hand winch.


  • They have the power to provide clean, renewable energy.
  • They have the power to run silently.
  • They have the power to lower your energy bill. But most of all, they have the power to inspire.

great idea!

the future of urban wind turbines is in making them attractive.

also, very interesting about the turbulence from other nearby wind turbines helping wind speeds.
