Good idea, but ideas like that could make households energy-self-sufficient and that would make it so people would no longer need to rely on friendly energy corporations. Next thing you know, people would have organic gardens in their backyards and chicken coops. Everyone knows anarchy would ensue if we didn't pay our corporate taxes and have corporations keep order.
I kid of course.
Even better, make you grass out of super thin flexible solar panel paper to harvest energy from both wind and the sun.
Look what ATS thought of with a quick brainstorming, imagine what the billions of people in the world could create if we were able to shift focus from profits to progress.

I may be misunderstanding, but your idea sounds a lot like the concept behind the "Wind Belt": a clever little invention which uses aeolian harp technology.
One prototype has powered two LEDs, a radio, and a clock (separately) using wind generated from a household fan. The cost of the materials was well under US$10.
