Bogus Wind Turbine Marketing Claims

Once again we are hearing from folks some pretty wild claims about marketers trying to sell wind turbines with some fantastic outputs, outputs that are in the realm of science fiction (Honeywell Windtronics especially). If you know the blade length, it’s pretty easy to determine how much power you can realistically produce. Check out out calculator here and do some what if scenarios with wind speed and blade length – http://www.green-trust.org/windpowercalc/eindex.html
