A donQi turbine was recently spotted in a home featured in September's issue of Dwell magazine, and it looks great. The donQi Urban Windmill is an attractive option for home energy generation, with the potential to recoup your investment in as few as 10 years without subsidies.
The donQi Urban Windmill is a product from Denmark, where they've been creating quite the buzz. Found at a number of online distributors, the donQi comes in a number of colors, and can be completely customized.
According to donQi, their windmill is safe and does not create annoying vibrations or noise. However, the home featured in Dwell did experience some vibrations from their Windmill which was mounted direction to their home. The turbine is designed to operate maintenance-free for a period of 15 years, with components designed to last 20 years.
