Our turbines are attached to existing lighting columns close to roads, where they can harvest the massive, untapped energy produced by moving vehicles.
Think about the last time a car or truck rushed past you. That power and energy is what we’re collecting.
Cars and trucks aren’t going away, so let’s make them work for the environment and for local communities.
Electricity flow up to street lights

Electricity flow down to the power grid
Street light column
We want to power every streetlight in the world using free, clean energy.
The UK spends £900m each year on street lighting. Italy spends €1.7bn.
Imagine how much money we can save across the world.
We can see a future where the roads are filled with electric vehicles, powered by Alpha 311 turbines.
As those cars move, we collect their energy and the cycle continues.
And that’s just for starters; contact us to learn more about our global timeline.
