Windmills above the treeline in forests
Solar panels over vegetables in farms

@njoseph I've wondered if it would be a good idea to place windmills along railroads and highways in rural area.

- Those are already noisy areas, so extra noise from windmill wouldn't cause problems.
- There's infrastructure already, so building and servicing would be easier and cheaper.
- There's literally thousands of kilometers to choose from, so no need to search pristine land.

One downside is required safety distances though.
