Wind trees- the answer my friend....

post-image
A French team of engineers has developed an artificial tree that can generate electricity using the wind. The tree uses turbines hidden inside plastic leaves and has the added advantage of being completely silent. This idea started out as a concept and is now being turned into reality by French startup 'New Wind' which is installing the first wind tree at Place de la Concorde in Paris and hoping to expand throughout the country and abroad. http://qz.com/763715/wind-trees-mini-turbines-that-can-power-homes/
