An IT company has joined forces with a green technology firm to develop wind turbines which attach to lamp-posts. The NVT Group’s partnership with Own Energy Solutions is set to create 25 jobs over the next 12 months which it hopes will rise to about 300 within three years. The scheme harvests wind using a small wind turbine and inverter system. As a result, metered, clean energy could be fed directly into the National Grid. The company said that as a result, each suitable lamp-post conversion would save half a ton of carbon being released into the atmosphere.
