Best of both worlds: The Bluenergy vertical SolarWind Turbine

GroovyGreen.com reports that Bluenergy AG, a German company, has created what appears to be the first “integrated solar vertical axis wind turbine.”

So when the wind isn’t blowing but the sun’s out, you still get electricity from the Bluenergy SolarWind due to the solar panels built into the blades of the turbine (and, of course, when the sun’s not out but the wind’s blowing, you also get power). Bluenergy’s different vertical wind and solar cell turbine models range from 2KW for home and residential use to 8KW for businesses, and come with an inverter built into the base.

You can check out Bluenergy’s official website here. Their site has a lot more details on the design of their new vertical wind and solar power turbines, along with downloadable brochures.
