Backyard Wind Tree

The wind turbine for your backyard: 26ft 'Wind Tree' uses tiny silent blades to generate electricity from light breezes

  • The 'Wind Tree' uses tiny blades housed in the 'leaves' that turn in breezes

  • A French firm is installing the first model at  Place de la Concorde in Paris

  • 'Aeroleaves' generate electricity in wind speeds as low as 4.5mph (7km/h)

  • This can provide enough power to supply 15 street lamps or one electrical car for 10,168 miles (1,360km) over the course of a year
