Wind Power From Busy Highway
How much wind does a 16-lane highway produces? Is it enough to make electricity? That's what we're about to find out thanks to students of Centennial College in Toronto. They have been taking anemometer measurements along the 401 highway, Canada's busiest road, to determine what is the appropriate turbine size for the project. "If all goes well, the site will be prepared for the installation of a full-scale wind turbine as early as the summer of 2006."
