Aussie effort

Hi, we recently saw this effort on our New Inventors program. It appears to overcome your tower issue by being specifically designed to sit on high-rise tower blocks.
Would love to hear your comments.

Wind Power

fantastic post, very informative. I wonder why the other experts of this sector don’t notice this. You should continue your writing. I’m confident, you’ve a great readers’ base already!

Not viable

Lest anyone think this is a viable choice, please note that this wind machine has been 30 years in the making and is still not right. For dog's sake, it weighs 5 tons. Nope, not even another 30 years will help this machine become useful.
