I would like to get the forum's thoughts on an idea that I have been considering... Has anyone ever seen a flagpole with a small windmill/turbine where the truck would normally be? Would you consider such a display to be disrespectful in any way? I work for a rural power company. We have an existing 40 foot flagpole (which I tend to) at our office building. My idea is to replace this flagpole with one that has a small wind turbine atop the flagpole where the truck would be (rotors/blades perpendicular to the pole...like a flat umbrella), solar cells mounted somewhere below the flags (already common), and then have battery storage for the power generated outside of our office building. I would use the power generated using the new set-up for flagpole lighting and maybe some other outdoor lighting nearby. All aspects of the design would be first-class so that the equipment does not detract from the display of the flag and so it wouldn't interfere with the flags in any way. So, what are your thoughts on this? If it wasn't tacky looking, would you consider the mounted equipment to be disrespectful or inappropriate? We are a very patriotic organization and would not go through with this if it might be offensive in any way. In researching this idea, I could only find conceptual designs for the windmill flagpole done by a couple of engineering firms, but nothing constructed yet. None of this is against the U.S. Flag Code and related laws. Thanks for your advice!
