Everlast’s PVW Hybrid Street Light

I wrote a post about induction lamp technology a few days ago – a company called Everlast is producing a solar and wind powered induction lamp street light.  PV panels, a turbine, and a 70-100W fluorescent induction source.  The system as a whole is pretty sweet – the wind turbine operates at as low as 2-3 mph, and has an electric shutdown after 60 mph.  I would assume that those blades could create some catastrophic failure on high winds, as any wind power collector.

Check out Everlast’s product page on the PVW Solar/Wind Street Light.  It’s pretty interesting!
