'Small wind' power



The first time I heard about "small wind" power was on some random television show, I can't remember which one, that featured a behind-the-scenes look at Jay Leno's massive auto garage in California. On the roof of it, and you know it's huge — the man owns a kazillion cars, he has small wind turbines that generate power for the garage.

"Brilliant!" I thought.

The reason I'm bringing it up now is because Yale University's Environment 360 project is reporting small wind power will soon be able to power our homes. The article claims one turbine can create enough electricity to fulfill -30 percent of the average-size home's power needs.

I don't know about you, but I think this is pretty cool ... and way overdue.

And, heeeeere's Jay, on Green Garage:
