Urban Green Energy is lighting San Francisco with its Sanya hybrid lighting street lamps, which use both wind and solar power to light up their LEDs. Vertical axis wind turbines are paired with small solar panels on an attractive pole-mount.

The Sanya hybrid lighting is so affordable that it is also being marketed to individual consumers who want to get ahead of the eco-curve and install their own. The customizable kit includes a vertical axis wind turbine, off-grid controller, pole and light fixture, but the deep-cycle lead-acid marine batteries for power back-up must be purchased separately.
