Windspire Wind Turbine in front of Royal Sonesta, Boston
These pictures of the Windspire were taken from the "Boston Duck Tour" amphibious boats/trucks while traveling down the Charles River in Boston, Massachusetts. The vertical axis wind turbine, manufactured in the US (Manistee, Michigan) by Reno, Nevada-based Mariah Power has been installed on top of the Boston Museum of Science as part of a project to test different wind technologies. Windspire is an example of clean, renewable energy technology that can provide a wise alternative to standard power solutions such as coal, oil, natural gas and large hydroelectric projects, which often pollute the environment.
