The Eddy GT Wind Turbine.

Great news for green energy in metropolitan areas...!
The Eddy GT launched by Urban Green Energy is a new, one-kilowatt wind turbine designed specifically for rooftops in the city. The near silent wind turbine rotates on a vertical axis, "optimizing wind capture" and keeping up with the changing wind shifts within a city environment.
The Eddy GT takes up just 40 square feet to generate its kilowatt — to get that much juice from a solar array, you would need up to 400 square feet, which is a tough sell in major cities like New York and San Francisco. While not a light investment at $7,000 per turbine, Urban Green Energy CEO Nick Blitterswyk estimates that in California, which offers a rebate, you could break even in 10 years, and without the $3,000 rebate, it could take 20 years.
