Mind blown: Kids solve energy crisis

A group of British schoolchildren have amazed environmentalists, seemingly inventing their own renewable energy solution.

Using thousands of upcycled toy windmills to create mini wind farms, the kids - based in Windsham, a small village in Solarfield, Warwickshire - have managed to generate enough electricity to power a nearby Scout hut and kindergarten for the last three months.

Thanks to sophisticated sensors in the ground, converting the wind power into electricity is simply a breeze, says Nigel Watts, 11-year-old Team Leader and physics enthusiast.

“It really is a ground-breaking piece of technology and we love that we can have movie nights safe in the knowledge we’re being entirely self sufficient.”

​​​​​​​E.ON Next is excited at the prospect of helping the group pioneer this astounding technology, and one day bringing it to our customers.
