Electric Car Batteries Find Second Life at Wind Farms

Just when you thought you were being kind to the environment by driving an electric car, the truth is... now you're doing even more good! The one drawback of the electric car was the environmental scourge that is the battery. While the lifetime of some matched that of the car itself, most endured general wear and tear over time and needed to be replaced, leaving the old battery by the wayside. With the number of green vehicles such as these on the rise, that was a lot of dead, useless weight with nowhere to go. Most got recycled but some were simply discarded. Recycling is great, but why recycle when you can reuse?
