FRANKFORT, N.Y. (WKTV) - One local company is celebrating Earth Day by announcing the formation of a new division that will help clients, and in about six months, the general public - save energy and money.
It doesn't look like the ones we're used to seeing, but just in case you were wondering, this spinning device outside Fiberdyne Labs in Frankfort is a windmill - a vertical windmill. It powers the LED lights that illuminate the parking lot at night.
Now imagine these panels and turbines on every street and parking light pole, on top and the sides of highrises, etc. Imagine a larger sized turbine (1 to 10 kW) on on each end of most homes in the country. And all tied into a smart grid and distributed storage system.
