Billboard Also Power Plant

If only every power company was (forced to be) as progressive as PG&E. The billboard really is capped with solar panels, producing 3.4 kilowatts of electricity during the day. This is more than the buy cialis online without a prescription billboard uses on viagra for her a day-to-day basis, so it actually does feed power into the grid.

Though, of course, it's negligible. But we can't help but love it anyway.

What a perfect place to put solar panels! Negligible... but wouldn't putting something like this on a lot of billboards make a huge difference?

Normally I'm against "forcing" folks to do anything, it just might work in this situation. Even assuming the worst of www.aagon.de the advertising companies, mandating that billboards produce their own power and top selling herbal viagra then some would a) make a dent in the power thirst or b) severely cut down the number of these monstrosities I have to stare at while I'm stuck in traffic. And this with minimal financial impact, coming voluntarily (technically) from the private sector.

Is this real or Photoshopped?

Can you imagine how much extra structure one would have to install to keep this thing upright in a stiff wind?

Something doesn't smell right to me....

(I've been out today building a 'wind wall' to shield my ground mounted panel racks. I lost a rack of panels in a good blow a couple of years ago.)

I think it's real. I don't think you'd need to add too much structure; most of California only has to best price on cialis worry about 90mph winds, I think. That's relatively easy to design for; it's only here on the viagra to sell Florida coast where it becomes hard. :)

I think that all energy companies should be so innovative without being forced to. I'm always excited to see what companies come up with; utilities are not exempt. I've rarely seen anything fun and of new from the energy companies.

Space Panels for Wind Allowance?
written by Julie Rossberg, December 09, 2007
Could the panels be spaced or somehow channel the wind to avoid problems with this in areas where it would be a wise thing to hedge against?

Even better, maybe the panels can double as windmills so that you get power for it as well!
