Gamesa has released a new wind turbine, model G114, that it claims has some considerable improvements over older models, such as:
The new wind turbine can generate 2 megawatts (MW) of electricity. It features a rotor which is 114 meters (374 feet) in diameter, with a swept area of 10,207 square meters. Each blade spans 55.5 meters (182 feet).
If wind turbines could generate electricity cheaply in the most stagnant of areas, then they could be used everywhere. This is a step in that direction.

Have you made your pledge yet?
To help you get started, Dr. Energy Saver and CleanTechnica are giving away an Energy Saving Basket that will help you save energy and learn more about home energy conservation. The basket contains energy saving gifts such as an LED bulb and weatherstrip kit, a copy of the Saving Energy at Home book — a comprehensive illustrated guide to home energy savings with 80 pages full of energy saving tips and ideas, plus $200 worth of referral vouchers, so that you and your friends can enjoy the benefits of a greener and more energy efficient home every day. That is a potential $450 value!
Just by replacing one incandescent light bulb by the LED offered in the basket, you will keep 300 lbs of carbon dioxide from being released into the atmosphere, keep about 25 conventional replacement light bulbs from being dumped into landfills, and save about $200 over the lifespan of the LED bulb. How is that for a small step?
The winner of the Energy Saver Basket will be selected randomly among the first readers to complete at least five of the following tasks (and lets us know by dropping a comment on this post):
Drop us a note on this post to let us know which 5 (or more) you’ve done! You have to do so to be entered into the drawing.
In addition to the winner, ten additional readers will be randomly chosen to receive a free copy of the book Saving Energy at Home.
A leading cause of global warming pollution comes from energy generation and use. In the US, approximately 40% of the energy used to power homes is produced by coal power plants. Coal plants not only release an enormous amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere; they also release tons of mercury and other hazardous pollutants. Taking even small steps to save energy and get off coal is one of the “greenest” things you can do to help the planet.
