Wind turbine street lights
Denmark is windy. Really windy. The Wind turbine street light makes use of all this wind to generate electricity. A part of this electricity is used to run an LED street light during the night. This street light makes maximum use of the mono-directional flow of wind funneled down long streets of row houses. Because of this effect, wind flows at higher speeds down these streets and does not change it’s flow direction. These street lights feed most of their energy back into the grid so that most of their energy can be used to reduce the carbon footprint of that neighborhood. This type of micro-wind energy production is the future of self-sustainability. The streetlight is fitted with solar photovoltaic cells on its upper side so that it can produce energy from sunlight. The blades of the wind turbine are made out of recycled plastic and all the other parts are recycled of other everyday items like bicycles and washing machines. The body of the street light is curved so that the light from the LED lights spreads on the road surface.
