Green WiFi is "a system that uses a solar panel, a charge controller, a battery, and a generic router to create nodes that cost around $200." The idea is that the internet signal travels from one node to the next, through a mesh. Because each node can be stand-alone, and does not depend on any other node (or even a power supply) the network can grow organically. I would like to see a similar set-up, though, with WiMax.
