A new trend in New York has started. People are starting to install huge turbines on the roofs of their apartments intended to create energy. There is a big question to whether or not these are truly creating energy or if people are just getting them because they look good. New York is a windy city, so they do have the potential to work there. Typical turbines require a steady breeze of 10 miles per hour or more, whereas winds in New York’s wind is from 3 to 30 miles per hour and comes from all directions. L&M (the company that creates these turbines) has the government on its side. The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority helped pay about half the $100,000 installation cost and will study the turbines’ efficacy. Even if they do not prove ideal at energy generation, turbines could still come in handy.
