    greatly reduces the efficiency of household windmills and shortens their lifespans. Wind tunnel tests probably do not reproduce real-life application. Notice that the field tests are out in the open. Someone who is fluent in the engineering of wind power devices please correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't see how this device overcomes the usual problems with small-scale, household wind power.
