Mobile Wind Power Generator

Truck-Mounted Wind Turbine Offers Improved Efficiency Over the Standard, Fixed System-


Wind farms are extremely lucrative when strategically placed in areas with high wind, but output still depends on varying factors such as terrain, turbine size and time of day. However, if the turbine were able to track wherever the wind may blow in any particular hour of the day, it would be more cost-effective and energy efficient than the standard stationary turbine. The Mobile Wind Turbine, created by Pope Design, offers just that. Mounted on top of a hybrid truck, the turbine can produce energy wherever the truck happens to be parked. To be fair, it would be impractical to assume that an entire wind farm could be arranged using this mobile carrier — but for concerts, military bases, businesses, schools, disaster relief efforts, and anything of the sort, this novel creation could be the ideal way to produce clean, renewable energy without the high costs and uncertainty of fixed systems.

    Hello nothing fancy or hyped.
    I can seriously see the enormous potential of the vehicle you have created. The mobile wind turbine vehicle is an extremely well needed concept for the area of disaster response. From the pictures you posted of the various stages of set-up(I saved them all)an idea came to mind thought would greatly enhance the usage of the vehicle. Please contact us, our contact information is available through our website posted above. This is no prank or joke as I am Founder and President of our organization. Also I must applaude you for answering a serious need in the disaster response area, and for thinking outside the box.
    Thank you and well done.
