Windmill

Summary:

With windmills placed around cities it helps get energy from a source that is there for everyone rather than having to mine for it or burn it. The wind blows the blades on the spinner and creates energy. It's like a fan, but doesn't give you a nice cold burst of air. We have them here in Maple Grove and I believe that it helps to cut down on CO2 production. There is energy to make it move, but in the end you get more than you make. I really believe that it's an amazing and well thought out idea for those who would like to cut down on our O-zone being polluted and destroyed.

What makes your idea different or unexpected? (4000 characters maximum or approx. 500 words)

There will be less pollution and unneccessary gasses in the air. It helps with getting businesses or even houses lit and energized. If these were to be placed around Saint Paul, think of how little gasses will hit our o-zone layer, thus giving us a better chance of survival in the future. There won't be as much global warming in our area.

Why do you think people will recognize or remember your idea after it comes to life? How might it inspire others to do something similar in their community? (4000 characters maximum or approx. 500 words)

It will make for cleaner air for the citizens to breathe and will prevent health issues in the future. It is something that I believe every city should have at least one of and Maple Grove is fortunate enough to have multiple.
