Josh D's Edmodo contribution: Cool new turbine technology:
Josh wrote, "this is a cool new wind turbine that is cheaper, more efficient, and mobile. making great for disaster relief and remote areas. because it is deployed at high elevation it is subject to winds about five times as fast as surface winds. It can also be used for things such as providing wifi to large areas with is high altitude vantage point. A really cool innovation"
