Micro Wind Turbines

News.com writes:

Rather than build farms of towering wind turbines in rural areas, some companies are designing “micro,” or small-scale, turbines that fit on top of buildings. The idea is to generate electricity from wind in urban or suburban settings.

In their pitch for the technology, the companies are going beyond satisfying the growing interest in clean forms of energy. AeroVironment, Aerotecture and a handful of other businesses are marketing their turbines not just as power generators, but also as attractive additions to existing structures.
