Turbines capture pressure waves
This a closer view of the Aerovironment turbines and their placement on the building. The idea is to have banks of these turbines on the roof edge of buildings, where they can capture the energy of gusty wind that comes up the sides of buildings. The wind installers did a study of the "pressure waves" from gusty wind but said they have been disappointed with the results of these turbines.
