US-based onsite renewables specialist Urban Green Energy (UGE) announced on Tuesday that it has fitted two turbines at the site capable of delivering 10,000kWh of electricity annually, equivalent to the power used by the commercial areas on the Eiffel tower’s first floor.
The company said the two UGE VisionAIR5 turbines are “virtually silent” and have been painted to match the rest of the tower.
It added that the site for the turbines 400 feet above the ground had been strategically chosen to maximise energy production and allow the turbines to take advantage of relatively steady winds."

Somewhere, Steve Jobs is spinning in his grave
Indeed. Unfortunately captain Cook is drifting towards MS stuff. Maybe in a couple of years, the Nadella Cook union will give birth to a unique product, iMac for Workgroups.
