Italian designers envision amazing Solar Wind bridge

Bridges and wind turbines seem to be a match made in heaven; bridges are generally quite tall where wind speeds are much higher and are often in exposed mountainous areas where significant winds develop. This is a 'future bridge' in every sense of the word, designed with solar panels embedded in the road surface that would provide 11.2 million kWh per year. Also, the wind turbines can provide 36 million kWh per year to produce, in total, enough energy to power 15,000 homes.
