    Well, I wasn't talking about vertical turbines that are 10,000 feet high. I was talking about a farm of them about 2 or 3 feet high in a small grid on top of a bus. One thing you should know is that school buses have extremely poor gas mileage, regardless of any kind of loads you put on the vehicle. In other words, it might get 8 mpg on a good day and put 50 people inside weighing 150 lbs. each putting 7500 extra pounds to the weight of the bus and the gas mileage won't get much better.

    Solar power is good, but it is slow in that it cannot put out lots of power unless you build an array of panels.

    You seem to complicate things by having the turbines fold down and such. It sounds great on paper but would be more complicated to make.

    I have about 30 years experience in manufacturing so I am trying to make this make sense.

    if you can manage the wind turbulence with a row of vertical turbines then you could have some good power source for windy days.. most certainly NOT any good for driving.. the create reisstance which means you burn more diesel fuel to move the bus thus negating any electricity you would make.. now solar of course can work while driving because the panels are down low and they pay for themselcves while you are stopped so the small amount of resistance solar creates wont hurt you driving.. you would want your turbines storable for driving.. thatsd why I like regular bladed units because you can fold them up, take the blades off, store the mast etc.. if you could build a vertical that folds flat you'd have something..

    of course my thoughts for wind are mostly for people who set up shop for a couple weeks or more where they can set up turbines and such vs someone who travels nearly every day.. solar makes most sense for someone who doesnt stay put long as theres zero setup..
