Free lighting!

I'm assigning a very high cool factor to this - solar trees. OK, they're actually street lights shaped like trees, with solar panels on top. They're being trialled in Europe (of course), but I would love to see them find their way to our fair city, especially along our many kilometres of bike paths.

Go here for the rest of the story and to see what they look like at night.
