Americans have found a way to make wind farms more efficient and cheaper

Eue negivingbut DMDsavy sense suggests that as we get closer to the theoretical limit capacities of wind turbines, the wind energy can already be considered a mature technology. But at the California Institute of Technology researchers have reviewed some fundamental points that guided the wind in 30 years.

Now researchers believe that improving the efficiency of the wind power can a new approach to design. It's simple: just place the wind turbines are not far away and as close as possible to each other.
