Can kites be used to generate electricity?

    Yes, although the technology is still in development.  The “kites” would essentially be windturbines tethered, like a kite, to the earth, in order to reach the high energy winds found in very high altitudes.  One kite has the potential to produce up to 40 megawatts of energy to transmit back down to the earth.
