Wind Turbine Trees- A Green Solution for Urban Environments

 

A new type of greenery has been popping up all over France, but these aren’t your typical trees. The French based company New Wind has made traditional, loud wind turbines a thing of the past with their new sleek and modern design. The “trees” are 8m tall and each have 63 aeroleaves. Inside each “leaf” is a blade which can capture and generate wind electricity at speeds as low as 7km/h. Over the course of a year, each tree could power up to 83% of a standard household’s needs, or an electric car for over 1300km. Learn more about this green technology here.
