(Phys.org) — French company Eole Water has announced that they have developed and are now in the process of selling wind turbines that have been modified to produce fresh drinking water.
“The turbines work by combining two current types of technology; traditional generation of electricity using wind as the driving force, and compressors commonly used by dehumidifiers and refrigerators.”
“The water that is produced drips down to the base of the turbine tower where it is filtered and delivered for use.”
“The new turbines do have one major drawback and that is the price…”
Phi Beta Iota: Maritime fresh-water makers have been around for a long time. Solar energy at the localized level is much more interesting, but the point of all of Brother Sepp’s posts is that technology is escaping from elite control and becoming much more democratic in nature.
