ABSTRACT
The article features a discussion on wind power. Wind power does not require further research and development before initial large-scale deployment unlike other solar-related processes. Wind power generating electricity on a large scale could contribute substantially to the national energy needs. Large wind-electric machines could be designed and built now that would provide the operating experience and the data for dependable cost analyses needed before large numbers of these machines would be deployed. An example of a wind-electric machine is the Smith-Putnam machine which was built and largely financed by a turbine firm, the S. Morgan Smith Company of Pennsylvania, with the participation of various firms and experts.
