WIND POWER

Recently moved into a neighborhood that is SO WINDY - even a small breeze feels like storm force winds and a neighbor who has lived there for most of his life says it's because of all of the new high rise homes and condos being developed there and that it wasn't as windy when all of the houses were the same height with yards between them. I look up and down our street and see all the new houses and they are like walls on either side of the avenue and it sparked my idea. The developers and city builders should consider installing wind turbines on new buildings that can generate energy to fuel the neighborhoods that these new developments are moving into. With our current climate changes, this is actually a good way to harness an efficient energy source and benefit communities. I hope this idea can inspire the elected representatives to vote it in and work towards a greener cleaner city utilizing wind energy!!
