The WST effectively generates more than 554,000 kW per Tower

Overhead charging is one method the tower is capable of providing.

Will CO2 Reduction fall prey to EV growth

Power plant efficiency is burdened by the thermal limitation of thermal, mechanical, and generator inefficiencies. This detail is rarely discussed, however understanding the entire production cycle is critical to solving our worldwide CO2 emissions challenges. (Source)

For example, a recent National Academy of Sciences report exposed environmental negative impacts of agriculture-based ethanol. They determined that methanol process cycle emissions result in a higher contribution to global warming. This revelation highlights that complicated conversion processes must be scrutinized to solve CO2 emissions. (Source)

The Wind & Solar Tower Provides a Solution

The Wind & Solar Tower produces electricity from wind and sun. It does this at the point of delivery and does so with the free resources from wind and sun. There are no power plants, transformers, substations, power lines or miles of wire. And all components necessary to generate electricity are housed on or inside the Tower.

Each Tower generates 169,000 kW of electricity per tower per year. Considering that more than two-thirds of the energy used in the current production of electricity is lost during the conversion of that energy to electricity for the end user, the generation of electricity of 554,000 kW per Tower per year with no impact to the U.S. grid is important – and impressive.

How loud is the Tower?

The Wind & Solar Tower™ generates and estimated 72 dB at a distance of 10 meters.

During operation of the a 36 kW wind only Tower, the Tower generated 72 dB at a distance of 10 meters. That is roughly the noise inside a car while driving 60 mph (see source). We expect the current model Tower to generate a similar sound output.

It is important to note that unlike a horizontal wind turbine (think pinwheel) which transmits sound from the blade tip in a radial pattern (up and down), the Tower’s vertical wind foils radiate its sound on a horizontal plane at hub height. In this case of the 36 kW Tower, a height of <>65 feet.

Moreover, a vertical wind turbine must rotate (point the hub) into the wind. This requirement also generates a vertical sound pattern that traverses along a horizontal plane around the tower axis. This means that vertical wind turbine not only transmit sound downward, they also distribute sound in a radial pattern around the tower. Much like a Vietnam era Hughey helicopter, HAWTs blades (sometimes 150 meter long) are prone to flex and with tip speeds approaching 200 MPH, will at time generate a slapping sound.
