GE's Enormous New Wind Turbine

by Andrew Price

March 30, 2010
General Electric has a new wind turbine. It's enormous-each blade is 176 feet long-and the drivetrain uses magnets rather than gears which simplifies the design and increases efficiency. According to Popular Science, it will be able to capture "25 percent more wind power than conventional models." It should be ready to go by 2012.Via PSFK
