Why don’t we put wind turbines on unused smokestacks? There are probably upwards of 100 old smokestacks of decent height near me, many from old WWII factories and retired coal facilities. If 50-200kw wind turbines were somehow attached to these smokestacks it would produce a lot of green energy at a lower cost (no need to build, transport and install a tower). The only thing I can really think of is damage or instability to the smokestack.
