The futuristic green blades are being attached to what looks like rather ordinary streetlights today in front of San Francisco City Hall. The lights are actually LED, according the sign and they’ll be 100% independent of the Grid. Wonder what the city would look like with thousands of these?
On Tuesday, Mayor Gavin Newsom switched on California’s largest municipal solar project. The irony of this, of course, is that the Sunset is one of the foggiest, cloudiest places in the entire city. So…it may be large, but who knows how much solar energy it will actually be able to harness. But…we give the city an ‘A’ for effort.
