New Wind Technology – Could be a Game-Changer

A Norwegian company is producing a revolutionary wind technology, called Windcatcher. The pod of wind turbines stands roughly 1000 feet tall and one is capable of producing electricity for 80,000 homes. Windcatchers are a lot more efficient than traditional wind turbines and are expected to last for 50 years – that compares to 30 years for a traditional wind turbine.
