These Leaf Sails catch the breeze and rotate the turbine. It is self governing in heavy weather.
As metaphor, I chose to represent the vascular anatomy of the leaf for it’s potency as a renewable energy system of incredible efficiency. Clearly the ability to photosynthesize water, sunlight and CO2 into stored carbon energy while expiring oxygen to balance the biosphere is a process that enables our survival. The leaf is a biological converter of immense capacity. It feed us, it keeps us warm and puts gas in our tank!
