Photos of Vertical Axis Wind Turbines

By Paul Gipe

I’ve posted photos of Vertical Axis Wind Turbines from my collection. I’ve tried to add historical information about the turbines as best I can. Some of these photos were taken more than thirty years ago and there’s little information on the web about them.

If anyone has more detailed information on any of the particular turbines, please send it along and I’ll add it as time permits.
