Students at Torontoâ€™s Centennial College have a plan to harness the wind
produced by high-speed traffic passing by on Route 401, which is
Canadaâ€™s busiest highway, to produce electricity.
The Canadian government has given the students permission to
install three instruments to record wind speeds and force adjacent to
the 16-lane highway. Later, the data will be evaluated to decide if
thereâ€™s sufficient wind from passing traffic to drive a turbine. If all
goes well, the students might have a wind turbine set up along the
highway within a year.
