La Casa Verde, a wind-powered home in San Francisco, not only lives up to its name with its urban application of the Skystream Residential Wind Turbine, but it’s on the market and could be your next green abode! Built as part of the Sunset Magazine Idea House Program, La Casa Verde sits on a lovely plot in San Francisco’s sunny Mission District and proves that wind power isn’t just for the suburbs anymore.
And of course, the Skystream 3.7 wind turbine, which has already been installed and can be seen working at the property. Robin Wilson, the owner of the residence, claims that this is the first residential urban wind turbine in the country. She didn’t mention how cool it looked, but you can see that for yourselves, in this video that Earth2Tech shot. According to Curbed, the property is now for sale, with open-houses throughout the month of October. Check out the video below to see the house in action.
