Wind powered water
« on: July 31, 2006, 11:07:23 PM »
For those of you looking for ways to move water with dependability. 
  Check out this site about Savonious rotors.

  It's a windmill that doesn't care which direction the wind comes from.  Used to power all sorts of water pumps.  Apparently used a lot in Australia.  Seems ideal for remote locations where the grid doesn't reach and you need a steady supply of water.
