Forum Post: Wind Turbines + addition of a Secret Squares Grid Design = multiple power generation from same foot print of a row of signular turbines.

Food 4 Thought - is this a possible leap forward for harvesting wind???

Take the secret squares grid ( used as example for easy familiarity ) = 3 rows of 3 squares stacked one on top of the other = a square of nine squares. Could that nine square construct hold nine turbines(?) or more depending on placement could the square be made larger(?). Instead of a 3x3 construct - how about a 4x4 or 5x5 or 6x6 square construct. Now take and add another behind the 1st and tie them together - do it again - and again ( go from square to cubic ). Equip the combined construct with elevators as well as ladders with the connecting frame-work doubling as service access platforms. How much power could be generated by such a construct while leaving much of the ground inside of the construct footprint open to other use?

Here is a fun article with 15 new age wind turbine designs.


When naysayers state that wind energy requires too much energy to create, they never seem to mention how much energy it takes to convert petroleum to gasoline, making it seem like it is free.

Yep - fossil fuel supporters/shills do have a tendency to leave out how much energy is required to refine - even sweet crude - which is not anything near as intensive as refining tar sands.

I would do a google search and use the subheading of IMAGES.

Another area of research is creating funnels and tunnels to re-direct the wind as well.

I have been intrigued by the idea of a swivel base that would automatically align the turbine with the direction of the wind.

Swivel base - a gimball? similar to a gyroscope assembly? As a smaller blade configuration fed by a funnel could be very powerful.
