LED revolution

  1. Jun 22, 2006 #1

    I understand these things can spin, but what I'm questioning is whether they can really produce enough power to even power themselves?

    I mean, there have got to be a few hundred if not thousand LEDs on each one, as well as a control circuit to control the LEDs.

    What do you think?

    6kW maximum is on the order of a single residential user's peak consumption. Wind power is not continuous however.
