Re: [alternativeenergy-35] Alt Energy Nov. Meeting - Join Tour de Coup - Good suggestion, Athena. Although I didn't see any methane generators on my trip around the Valley on Saturday, that is a real possibility for large scale operations that have to deal with the chicken manure in one way or another.

Re: [alternativeenergy-35] A New Kind of Wind Tower - Jon The concept works, but you are right about their embedded energy costs. These are very similar to Cool Towers.
