Plastic Wind Trees Are Bringing Sustainable Power To Residential Homes


29 August, 2016


These French-made turbines are offering a small, aesthetically pleasing approach to affordable personal energy

According to the Union of Concerned Scientists, an environmental and social research organization, wind energy is the fastest-growing source of alternative electricity in the world. Large wind farms have been used for city power, but it’s been largely removed from residential areas. That’s because it’s taken enormous wind turbines that can be as tall as a five-story building, and almost as wide, to generate enough electricity to make the investment worth it. As a result, only major utility companies have used wind energy to power their facilities. Things are changing now as a company believes they have the solution to residential wind turbines. A French business called New Wind has developed what they’re calling a ‘wind tree,’ built and conceived by Claudio Colucci Design, that can be placed in the backyard of consumer homes to generate energy at home.
