Soon, drones to put solar and wind power plants in sky

New York, Dec. 5 : A UK company is in the midst of developing a technology that will take power plants to skies.


UK-based New Wave Energy is in the process of developing an army of power-generating drone aircraft measuring 20x20m (65ft).

The crafts are going to be fitted with four small propellers that keep it aloft, and a large, flat surface that's covered in solar panels, Extreme Tech reported.

Turbines are also going to be fitted to the drone in strategic locations to generate power from wind.
The drones would be capable of flying at a height of up to 50,000 feet.

The propellers of the drones are going to allow the craft to track the course of the sun across the sky to remain in optimal position.

New Wave Energy's proposed drone power plants would supposedly also be powering themselves entirely with the energy that they generate on-board.
