windside is a product you can buy.
 perhaps with a warranty?
it is very expensive if i remember correctly.
it is a pure drag devise, turns at the same speed as the wind.


lenze2 is a machine design you must build.
your own skills are the guaranty
it is a drag & lift devise, turning slightly faster than the wind.

 copilador, in my opinion, for an urban environment , a squirrel cage design is most suitable .
it may not be the most efficient but aesthetically, it is superior
here is one from the board a few years ago  .http://www.fieldlines.com/index.php?topic=129155.0
