Wind Turbines on the Highway Median Strip!

July 12, 2008

Peter Everett of Morrisville writes a Burlington Free Press “My Turn” column today suggesting that the highway median strip be used for alternative power production. What a great idea! I wish I had thought of that, and I hope it is an idea that is snapped up by some entrepreneurial soul real soon. I also wish it was easy for a property owner to install small windmills and little solar panels around the property for fun and profit. Why are there none to be found with the exception of some cheaply made landscape lights at Home Cheapo?

A couple of years ago, I drew this while on the train from the Austrian Tyrol to Vienna.

It’s not any specific place, just a mashing of passages that I was seeing out the window. The lovely windmills were just everywhere; the countryside was covered with countless windmills…like beautiful wild flowers…really beautiful.
