The present work reviews the use of wind turbine and solar energy in highway lighting. The vertical axis wind turbine along with solar cell gets installed on the divider provided between two lanes of highway. When the vehicle passed on the highway it produces a considerable amount of air blow due to its high speed typically in range 90-110 km per hour. This air tangentially strikes on the blade of the vertical axis wind turbine and its makes a rotation of the turbine in only one direction. The solar system is coupled to vertical axis turbine to generate electrical energy and also installed in a way that it diverts the vehicle air towards the turbine. The generator with the gear mechanism is connected to the shaft of the vertical axis wind turbine to generate electricity. The electrical output of vertical axis turbine and the solar system is stored in a battery. This stored energy which can be further used for street lighting, toll gates, etc. purposes on highway to lessen dependence on the main supply grid.
