Hey SlurryGuy,

Thanks for the links.

I looked at OtherPower a while back. Looked like there was lots of good things on there. I will have to dig deeply through it again.

I hear what you are saying about the big picture of wind energy.

One of the real common questions I often get with the car is asking about adding solar panels to it. I then do the explanation about how solar panels best work being very large and mounted to an array or a roof. It would be similar, actually TALKING to people with a wind demo.

A poster of a large wind generator would certainly NOT get as much attention as a very small, but actual working wind generator.
