What If… Highway Windmills Edition

I was driving down the highway a few weeks ago and found myself checking out the light posts.

There’s gotta be hundreds of thousands of light posts on the highways.

Then an idea hit me. What if every light post had a wind turbine attached near the base?

Cars FLY by the posts, creating a burst of wind as they whiz by. This wind can be harnessed.

One of the difficulties with wind turbines is that they are not easy to maintain due to their extreme heights. But having them low to the ground would be much easier access. Plus, they wouldn’t have to be excessively large.

What problems do you see with this? Do you think this could be put into reality?

Let me know below!
