  •  A tall pipe, even a tank, with a windmill pumping (0+ / 0-)

    the water up whenever theres wind and the generator at the bottom, on demand, returning the water to the well.

    If I ran this circus, things would be DIFFERENT!

    •  Might work reasonably well in warm climates (0+ / 0-)

      where the temperature stay above freezing.

      •  I see water tanks in Ohio (0+ / 0-)

        75 feet in the air, almost every town has one.
        Usually with the town's name or their HS football team's name painted on it.
        How do they keep from freezing?
