South African swayed by wind power

Cape Town man builds power-producing turbine after state-owned company failed to connect electricity.

    A South African man has found an innovative way to gain access to electricity.

    Ricardo Fortune could not get the state-owned company to connect electricity to his house in Cape Town, so he built a turbine.

    Now Fortune uses his turbine to harness the wind.
