This is a wind
powered electric generator made from recycled aircraft wings. The
wing moves up and down the pylon which movement drives its generator.
Depending on wind speed lift is produced either by the aerodynamic
shape of the wing - in strong air current or by tilting the wing
on its axis in light current. Once reaching the top of the pylon
it is propelled back down by a combination of its own weight and
by reversing the tilt so the wind's force drives it downward. Electricity
is generated by any up or down movement of the wing. The recycled
wings are modified by removing engine mounts, unnecessary controls
and hydraulics and by filling the fuel chambers with helium.
The 5,000 M2
wing tops are covered with solar panels molded to the wings contour.
[ twice the surface of a tennis court] just the solar generator
will produce between 5MW and 8MW per daylight hour - which is favourable
to production from the largest wind turbines].
In fact, compared to a propeller driven wind generator wings (with
their solar skin), rising and falling in a steady breeze are projected
to generate as much electricity as the very largest wind turbines
of today - and at a capital investment of less than one third).
We also believe wings will be preferable to turbines for these reasons:
1 - While many consider wind turbines to be unsightly an even greater
disadvantage is that the pressure booming they create renders the
ground they occupy to be uninhabitable by humans and unhealthy for
animals. Turbines kill hundreds of thousands of birds each year.
Wings, on the other hand, might capture the public imagination reminiscent
of their romance with the aeroplane and flight. Ground occupied
by wings is no less environmentally agreeable than any other ground.
2 - Wing generators are projected to have a much longer service
life than industrial turbines.
3 - Wing generators will be far greener than turbans on the additional
grounds that they will be produced largely from recycled components.

Original Inventor exists to assist new inventors: to recognise and
time-stamp-archive your proprietary designs (in our physical data
vault), to defend your proprietary art against infringement, theft,
competing claims - and we do this on the basis that legal fees are
contingent upon winning. And later, if you wish, we can help you
obtain a US patent. And if and when it becomes appropriate for you
to leverage your invention into a product or a company: we can present
you to people who will evaluate your invention, people who could
partner with you or provide startup capital of financing. If at
any time you wish to remove your design or invention from our vault
and database you simply need to identify yourself and request that
we delete your material from our archives. No cost or delay.
