The rear is the ideal place for something like this, sure you are not going to get a whole lot of power out of it because there is not a lot of straight air flow, but it will help smooth the air flow and generate power at the same time.

I wonder if some of those piezo electric ribbon generators would do well, they have a very low power output but they also just need to flop around, like what happens when you have turbulent air flow.
