Renovation of millions of dollars in green building with 100% wind power will be conducted by the Texas-based Green Mountain Energy Company.

That makes so much sense! Up there is where the wind is and this feature should be incorporated into all new constructions.

I can not under stand why they have not put small turbines under the windows so to speak they can so easily be maintained the surface pressure area must be fantastic,these things must be able to be designed to run quiet and if one goes down its a minute amount of power of the whole,just thinking.
