generalelectric All the engines may be jetting away now, but the blueprints are still here! If you have access to a 3D printer, you can build your own at home (and even make the box!). Head to http://imgur.com/a/Z3qJX for the how-to! #Avgeek #3dprinting 2w

  •   hayspotter @bandrea21 Everything could run on DC current with a storage capability for the non windy days and it would be free energy plus ad some to the existing grid. You could couple this with solar panels as well. I have many many friends that are living off the grid this way and are hardly leaving a carbon footprint at all. (Not that leaving a carbon footprint really matters in the long run buy hey...) 1mon
  •   hayspotter I think about this stuff as a penny saver rather than a keeping Mother Earth habitable forever thing. Bottom line, there is an asteroid headed right for Earth as we speak. Just cause we don't see it doesn't mean it's not there and coming right at us. It will come and it will destroy 98% of the life on Earth unless we devise a way to first catch it and then stop it. We've got a long way to go on that front. 1mon
  •   hayspotter I do like to see all the windmills going up though. It creates jobs. Construction jobs, maintenance jobs, etc... I'm just not going to hail them as something beautiful because they're not. 1mon
  •   mattmckean Windmills are not economical, they are very very expensive. In addition, outside the cost of constructing and maintaining them, the intermittent energy creates massive transmission challenge, the grids are not designed to handle them. Compare the cost per kWh to conventional power and it becomes nonsensical in most cases. 1mon
  •   aviationlovers @generalelectric we are a big fan of General Electric !! Could you guys follow us ? :) 1mon
  •   kimarturo I'm a big fan of turbines! 1mon
