The virtually silent, fully enclosed, Solar Aero bladeless wind turbine is safe for birds. The turbine design is based on a 1913 Tesla patent and has been specially modified for wind generation.

Not only does the Solar Aero bladeless wind turbine design preserve safe avian air space, it can generate power for about half the cost of power generated by bladed wind turbines. The patented design holds promise as a rooftop-mounted micro-wind power generator.

Implications - The Solar Aero bladeless is fantastic wind turbine that is safe for bats and birds. The Fuller Wind Turbine took four years to be fully developed and £215,000 of private investment. Judging from the results, it looks like money well spent. Solar Aero Research will be able to tout the company's commitment to environmentally friendly product development, and in the newfound consumer economy, that is of the utmost importance.
