Floating Turbines Coming to Alaska

Floating turbines are coming to Alaska. A new kind of floating wind turbine might be generating energy for people in Alaska in the near future. Compared to the iconic wind turbines, the new design is mounted inside of a helium balloon that floats up to 1 thousand feet in the air, with out a tower. Wind speeds at higher altitudes are faster and more consistent which will make the turbines produce more energy than the land towers.
