Wind On Dole Street

Who says wind cannot be done in town.  This vertical axis turbine is generating power on a house in Honolulu, just off the freeway.   

They have 2 units, with the smaller being a traditional windmill type.   The smaller makes quite a bit of noise, we don’t recommend those because the Honolulu noise codes especially at night are very hard to meet.   If the neighbors complain, they would have to take that one down.   We will not do those noisy ones.

The new designs make power even in light wind.
