SK5545 : Wind Turbine at Tesco, Nottingham

taken 16 years ago, near to Bulwell, Nottingham, England

Wind Turbine at Tesco, Nottingham
Wind Turbine at Tesco, Nottingham
This wind turbine stands in the car park of the Tesco store at Top Valley, Nottingham. Vertical axis wind turbines such as this one are better suited to urban environments where there may be no predominant wind direction, perhaps due to the built up surroundings. The more familiar three-blade horizontal axis ones will generally be more efficient in a steady air flow. See LinkExternal link and LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link )

Update, June 2011: This wind turbine is no longer there, although I am not sure when, or why, it was removed.
