However, an Oklahoma architect put together a design that does just that. Will we soon see innovative skyscrapers with wind turbines incorporated into the facade and between each floor? The two images on this page show Rand Elliott's design and he claims that the tower would create all the power needed by the entire building when winds are at 28 mph. About 10 to 15 percent of the building's energy needs would be meet when the winds are only at 10 mph.
How much will a building like this cost?
How loud or how noisy will the turning turbines be?
