“Is renewable energy becoming so popular that even the Eiffel tower is starting to use it?”
Interest in renewable energy is skyrocketing around the world.

In fact, renewable energy is becoming so popular that even national monuments are starting to use them. As of 2015, The Eiffel tower in Paris, France has become outfitted with two wind turbines to increase power generation. These turbines utilize a vertical axis design that is 5.2 meters in height and 3.2 meters in width which can be expected to produce 10,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity per year!
