WIND1.000000 has been designed to increase public acceptance of wind power plants which are often considered as spoiling the scenery. WIND1.000000 fully integrates into its surrounding by making use of existing power cables, thus also strengthening the coherence between windmills and electricity production. In addition, it counters the energy losses in long-distance power-cable energy supply. WIND1.000000 rotates around the power cable to which it is attached generating energy through electromagnetic induction; the energy is then transmitted directly into the grid.
