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
