Neat idea

Some Japanese cities have installed these streetlights that harvest solar and wind power to fuel themselves. They seem like a great idea -- in Philly, they'd save not only the cost of the power at night but also the (nontrivial) cost of digging up the street or sidewalk to run the underground wiring. Plus they look pretty striking. Spiff!
