The problem with most earthbound wind turbines is that, even in ideal locations, the wind stops blowing occasionally. A thousand feet in the air however, it's a different story. The wind is strong and constant and that is where the Magenn Air Rotor System (MARS) is designed to be tethered. Think of the MARS as a spinning blimp with scoops to catch the wind and you won't be far off. Ottawa-based Magenn Power says that a 100ft wide MARS can produce 10 kilowatts of energy anywhere on earth. Stats for Blimp-Mills For Constant Power Anywhere Trending: Older & Buzzing
