    K, to be honest, this is extremely inefficient.. You’re getting maybe a handful of sporadic kilowatts? K.. You can do that with a traditional generator (Without having to utilize something the size of a semi, or find a constant wind alley) in a package the size of a car trunk. You could spruce up that approach by simply using a friendly fuel like ethanol or bio diesel, etc.

    A truck full of deployable solar panels is even an option. This much effort and resources to deliver a single temporary window turbine.. no. You could build 5-10 permanent turbines for the cost of this rig, easily.
