Flower Power!!!!!!!!!!!

26 Mar

Usually, when wind power is mentioned, what can be imagined are the big fan like structures that occupy a wide area. I even remember in one of the shows that I have seen, they interviewed a resident near the wind farm to be built in the area. According to the interview, the resident did not like the idea of having a wind farm near them due to the imposing figure it would have on the landscape. It’s like, they are just so bulky.

As a solution to this problem, Power Flowers were designed by NL Architects. This structure uses turbines designed by Urban Green Energy. These turbines are not that efficient compared to the bulky ones, but an advantage of using their kind is that they can be used in more compact spaces such as parks and cities.
