    So, I have guessed that the V stands for Vertical ...
    Is it noisy ?, I'm sure it's not only to power the clock ?
    Cheers !

    Hotz,
    it a windmill.
    There is someone in my town that has got an autonomous house, he has one like that in his garden.
    The blades are maybe 4 or 5 meters long, from maybe 1 meter from the ground.
    He was not authorized to have the big one in a star shape, but this model he was.
    But his neighbors were complaining about the noise (I think the manufacturer did something to fix it) and the "psychedelic" effect of it, when it's turning and when sun rays go through it ...
    But there are always people to complain ...
