Jay Leno — always a strong advocate for renenwable technologies — has released a new video showing off a new vertical-axis magnetic levitation wind turbine from Enviro-Energies. The specific turbine being shown in this clip is actually headed for Ed Begley Jr’s home — but Leno is quick to point out that his own maglev turbine will be bigger and more powerful.
The technology itself is very cool — with little resistance needed to turn the turbine and produce energy. Even better, these types of “personal wind turbines” can be mounted on the roofs of homes and are whisper quiet, as well as safe for birds. Check out the clip below:
