Eiffel Tower Fitted with Wind Turbines

From a recent TakePart article, The Eiffel Tower has been outfitted with two energy producing wind turbines. Installed a height of 400 feet and collecting wind from every direction, they are able to produce 10,000 kWh of electricity which in turn flows into the grid. The Eiffel Tower is able to power its commercially operations with this energy while also educating travelers to the monument about the value of alternative energy. See the video!
