Wind Turbines For Electrical Towers

Designed by a French team of designers, the Wind It concept has won Metropolis Magazine’s “2009 Next Generation Prize.” The designers propose installing wind turbines onto broken electrical transmission towers and towers that are currently being used to carry electric cables. The turbines are designed in three sizes which provide different amounts of energy that can either be used to light up a single room or power 20 homes. The designers state that if a third of France’s electrical towers are outfitted with these turbines, they could produce the same output as two nuclear reactors.
