$2500? Nice.  Let's hope these innovative ideas get a chance to scale up.

The bladeless system is designed to supply buildings with electricity harvested from wind (Aeromine Technologies)

A new rooftop wind harvesting device is capable of generating 50 per cent more electricity than solar panels for the same cost, according to its inventors.

A much smaller footprint means a single unit can also provide the same amount of power as up to 16 solar panels.

The motionless design, created by Texas-based startup Aeromine Technologies, replaces the blades found in traditional wind turbines with an aerodynamic system that harvests energy from the airflow above a building.

This makes them virtually noiseless and safe for birds and other wildlife.

Want. How long until it's viable, I wonder.

VW unveils MEB platform for electric vehicles, launches ‘Electric for all’ campaign to have ‘affordable’ EVs

The modular electric drive matrix (MEB) is VW’s next-generation electric platform on which the production versions of its “I.D.” concept electric vehicles are based on.

Christian Senger, Head of the E-mobility Product Line, says that the MEB, as a dedicated electric platform, will make it possible to install larger batteries:

“The ID. will be a milestone in technological development. It will be the first fully connected electric car with full everyday utility that millions of people will be able to afford. The car holds the road really well thanks to the flat battery in the floorpan and the space inside is much more generous – we are making substantial headway with the sense of spaciousness.”

VW is going with the skateboard-like design with the battery pack sitting on the floor between the two axles.

Solar and Wind Lock-In Fossil Fuels — And That Makes Saving the Climate Harder & More Expensive

Privately, many climate and energy experts admit that the fastest, easiest, and cheapest way to decarbonize energy supplies is with nuclear power.

How could they not? France and Sweden proved it.

As a result, the two nations enjoy vastly cheaper and cleaner power than solar and wind-heavy Germany and Denmark.

And yet many of the same experts proclaim publicly, “We need a clean energy mix!” — one that includes solar and wind. 

Why?

The reason has nothing to do with technology, engineering, or economics and everything to do with politics.

As a result, we are at grave risk of locking in fossil fuels and making the decarbonization of energy harder, slower, and more expensive than it needs to be.

Our electric provider offers something very similar. Our house was built in 1927 and is not terribly efficient, we know this. We do what we can; I'm working on putting R30 insulation in the attic, all of our light bulbs are LED and we use a programable thermostat. We also subscribe to our provider's wind-energy service.

 
well that's almost exactly what i've done 

i also upgraded my hvac to a much higher seer rating

my provider (florida power and light) claims to be one of the greenest outfits going

mainly they use nat gas and nuclear but they're going into solar in a relatively big way



i've glanced at their plans and map but yet to have the time/mind space to anal-yze it

Planning ahead to meet our customers' energy needs

At FPL, we’re committed to meeting our customers’ energy needs, now and in the future. We’re delivering on that commitment through sound planning and low-cost, reliable and environmentally responsible new generation resources. We plan years into the future and annually update our plans with the Florida Public Service Commission.
