The invert hyberboloid would be essentially a five legged Eiffel tower, With big flaps that would rotate up to spoil airflow out of the bottom. Three sides in low winds and two sides in high winds to bleed off the excess.

The Coriolis Effect would create an inverted gravity vortex to supercharge the turbine.
