Air Turbines: Introduction


The futuristic look or the 'whirling' noise of windmills is unpleasant to some people, more so if you live close to one.

An Ontario-based company is working to place "turbines" floating hundreds of feet high above the ground. Learn more about this new technology, and what exactly are the advantages and disadvantages of this system, also find out about some applications.
