There are a lot of people who do not like wind turbines to be
placed in the countryside.
The real problem is not where they are constructed,
but how to generate electrical power just where it is needed the
i.e. In our cities or urban centres.
I was in centre of Bristol last week, and came upon the site of a
vertical wind turbine which is installed on top of a roof.
It looked very elegant indeed.
There are a lot of very good technical reasons why this type of
vertical turbine in ideal for use within urban areas.
The are many different models to choice from.
Some of them are also being used in offshore wind farms.
There are also a lot of very imaginative designs for windturbines
which have been and are being developed right now.
I look forward to the day in which they become just as common a
sight as the urban fox.
