A simple concept turned vision. In this case, an old water pumping windmill has now been repurposed and recycled into a renewable energy resource. Carlos Fernandez-Bueno started on a journey to repurpose a windmill on his property in Dickerson, Maryland to produce electricity. He started out by dissecting the old windmill and tinkering with it like he did his Erector sets as a young boy. 50+ years later, with a little production help and many hours of studious trial and error, he had his first conversion prototype. Between 2008 and 2009, he patented multiple assembly prototypes and the rest, as they say, is history.
