Windpowered parkie's shed

Garden News has a nice piece about how electricity/gas company E.ON has kitted out Leicster park keeper Mick Eaton's shed with a bespoke wind turbine to generate enough power to provide lighting and boil an energy-efficient kettle. Jim Macdonald, director of the consumer business at E.ON, said: “We want to change the way people think about energy. We’re showing that green energy is real and very accessible.”
