The Anonymous Widower

Zero-Carbon Lighting Of Large Spaces

In Cockfosters Train Depot – 12th January 2023, I took a series of pictures of Cockfosters Train Depot, of which these are a selection.

Note, the lamp clusters on top of tall poles to light the area.

You see lots of these lights to illuminate play areas, car parks, rail sidings and truck depots.

Could a SeaTwirl or another vertical wind turbine be placed as high as possible up the pole, that supports the lights?

  • A battery would be needed for when the wind doesn’t blow.
  • A control system would be used to use the lights, when they are needed.
  • The poles would be able to be laid down, like many lights can be, for servicing from the ground.

Cockfosters would be an excellent location for a test, as the wind is always blowing and the site has an altitude of nearly a hundred metres.
