  • Reflection Question
    Electricity Generation Learn More about Micro Wind
    Micro turbines can be placed on large structures to take advantage of stronger, steadier breezes. The Eiffel Tower now sports vertical axis turbines that produce electricity for use on site. Where could micro turbines potentially be installed in your city?

    Shwu-Miin Lin 4/25/2018 5:57 AM
    I think they can be installed in the parks for decoration and for generation.
