Generating electricity from kites

In order to generate power the kite pulls a string attached to the generators on the ground. Upon reaching their maximum height, they are reeled back down to repeat the process.

Wind a kilometer up is much stronger and more dependable than wind on the ground. The Google Foundation, researchers in the Neterlands, and others are seriously studying high altitude kites as a way to generate enormous anounts of cheap, renewable energy.
