A bladeless wind turbine whose only rotating component is a turbine/driveshaft could generate power at a cost comparable to coal-fired power plants, according to its developers at Solar Aero. The New Hampshire-based company recently announced its patent on the Fuller wind turbine, which is an improvement on a patent issued to Nikola Tesla in 1913.
The Desboro Inn is still open, I had a few beers there this weekend.
Might it inspire an Al Purdy to compose something comparable to At the Quinte Hotel?
Went to a local community meeting a few days ago. An information session about windmills that are in the proposal stages for this area in central Ontario. There were by my estimate about three hundred people,
I must say the oposition to those windmills is getting much better, The government on the other hand sent some total PR dudds from the green energy initiative, who only talked about procedural matters. The locals gave Rick Johnson, our local MPP a hard time for having supported the Ontario government in bypassing local say in the decision process. People were realy frustrated by the lack of answeres to their concerns There was also an increased anger with the urban needs over riding rural concerns.
