www.ntv.co.ke There’s a wind of change that is literally sweeping across Marsabit County. Several companies both local and international have been licensed to begin construction of wind power plants around the vast county. The Marsabit County council has already allocated hundreds of thousands of acres of land to the national power generator Kengen and other private operators. NTV’s Rita Tinina reports on the development that could uplift living standards in the area.

We are currently seeking investors, and manufacturing companies to license, purchase patent rights, or enter into a royalty agreement for this, and our other inventions from “DW”- the inventors of this innovative new product. When you think about it, almost every great advance in medicine, art, engineering, politics, religion, design, and RULES FOR THINKING, in general, has occured when people challenged the previous rules of thought and tried a new approach. Here’s a unique inexpensive use for bamboo to make a vertical windmill. This is a new “spin” for bamboo! Let’s get this inexpensive vertical wind turbine product producing power in India, Africa, Asia, and other tropical bamboo growth areas globally. (pp) The power output can be adjusted to suit the given resource of wind currents from any direction. We have a solar photovoltaic componet add-on at high speed rotation as a hybrid energy additive for storage or kick laucnhing the “first motions”! (rotational inertia) It is said that fully 70% of the economy in areas of India come from bamboo products. Here’s one that produces energy & money long after it’s built. In addition, solar cells have been shown to last 25 years or more, so the additional high rpm solar umbrella on top, is a must! With this VAWT, ALL WINDS ARE ACCEPTED FROM ALL DIRECTIONS! (no tail fin needed) Also, this VAWT has easy, low to the ground maintenance, –and cheap materials & as always, it’s “cost per watt” to the bottem $$$$$$- line. To capture a

FACT: There aren’t enough resources on this planet to sustain continued human growth and increasing quality of life. FACT: If we want to avoid catastrophic war, suffering, and global shortages of energy, we need to start looking to space seriously for solutions. Space Based Solar Power is the first step.

Fifty years inthe making, solar-power cells are still flat, rigid, and ugly. But new research shows how they could be made lightweight, flexible, and transparent. These innovations could expand solar-cell use to things like solar fabrics and power generating windows. www.sciencentral.com
