I don't think that is expend automatically, it would to easy if this thing will happen. Of course, you need a vision, some planning, financial support and a lot of work.

@daniell: Well yes it will expand automatically. The most difficult part is to get the main part right. After that the other parts will expand automatically.

This process is normal, a city will always expend in its suburbs and these areas will become the new city's neighborhoods. A good example is the new homes in South Lyon, Michigan. If you are interested, click to view more details about this new community.

Rob, I'm afraid I feel the same way you used to. When I drive about 60 miles west of Chicago, I see great groups of wind turbines in the farm lands. They do detract from the serene look of that area.

"Acutually, MyDesign, Albuquerque is a good city for a combo of wind and solar. Right now, it's overcast and windy. When it clears up, the wind will go, but the sun will come out."

Rob, then I think it may be one of the good place to live in. lucky fellows.

"I live in Albuquerque, too. As you mentioned, we have plenty of wind during the string. But as a father of a kite-loving daughter, I can testify that most days here are not that windy. We have plenty of opportunity for solar however, since we get tons of sunshine."

Rob, we cannot assure the availability of both sunlight and wind throughout the year. That's the reason; we had implemented hybrid models, so that one or another will, be there throughout the year.

Yes, that would look strange, Chuck. Yet I remember the first time I saw wind turbines on the Texas plains, like something out of one of those early science fiction magazines. They gave me the willies, but they were also beautiful in their way

Hey, Mydesign, I live in Albuquerque, too. As you mentioned, we have plenty of wind during the string. But as a father of a kite-loving daughter, I can testify that most days here are not that windy. We have plenty of opportunity for solar however, since we get tons of sunshine.

Admittedly, Rob, it would also look pretty strange to have a 200-foot-tall wind turbine atop a 30-story building.
