"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.

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, 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.

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.

@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.

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.

The Dutch are known for their love of bicycling, and they’ve also long been early adopters of green-energy and smart-city technologies. So it seems fitting that a town in which painter Vincent van Gogh once lived has given him a very Dutch-like tribute -- a bike path lit by a special smart paint in the style of the artist's “Starry Night” painting.
Ever wanted your own giant robot? Three engineers did, and now they want to make 15-ft, fighting MegaBots a household name.

For decades, engineers have worked to combat erosion by developing high-strength alloys, composites, and surface coatings. However, in a new paper, a team at Jilin University in China turned to one of the most deadly animals in the world for inspiration -- the yellow fat-backed scorpion.
