Help your electric bill by growing a solar tree

Solar cells mounted to look like a tree
This video shows a pretty cool idea that helps generate a bit of free electricity for those who live in sunny areas.

The video below is from Taos, New Mexico and shows a “solar tree”. It’s a bunch of solar panels which are arranged to look like a funky tree. The panels are photovoltaic and generate electricity directly from the sun, which is then routed into batteries or used to run other gizmos.

Unfortunately, I don’t have a link where you can go buy the solar tree — I’d guess they’re hand-made by an artist in the Taos area, but if you have more info, please leave it in the comments below.
