Grounds for a re-think

With reference to the ongoing debate about renewable energy generation and the NIMBY attitude to wind generators (Letters, passim) a thought occurs to me.

Would it be possible to attach wind generators to the electricity pylons that cover the UK? No more ground would be taken up as the structures are already there, giving no one the excuse to complain about ‘the eyesores’. Vertical axis wind generators would probably be easiest to attach by placing them on platforms mounted on the horizontal pylon supports.
