Highway Wind Turbines

Wind Energy, as everyone knows can be used to generate electricity and are common in our rural countryside in windy prone areas. These wind turbines have been proven generators of clean, green power, although most of the time you need large open areas of space to locate these.

So how do we bring wind power and the associated turbine producing equipment to the cities ?

This futuristic Highway Turbine was thought up by an Arizona University student.  The turbines are simply designed to pickup the air turbulence created by the passing  car and lorries which may be traveling at speeds up to 65 – 70 mph beneath the Highway Turbine.

It is estimated that each turbine could produce approximately 9.6 kwh of energy annually and that’s enough to light up a small apartment or help power the street lights on our motorways.

Good idea or not time will tell although I like it and maybe they should be painted green
