Wind-Powered Torch.

Solid move by the neighbours to the South:

ARLINGTON, Va., Feb. 21, 2006 - The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) has contracted with Pepco Energy Services, a subsidiary of Pepco Holdings, Inc., to supply renewable power to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, both operated by the National Park Service.

The three-year contract calls for Pepco Energy Services to supply an estimated 27 million kilowatt hours (kWh) of electricity generated from 100% renewable resources to the Statue of Liberty on Liberty Island and the Ellis Island Immigration Museum on Ellis Island. Windmills will generate the energy.
