PEOPLE POWER / Power generation systems

PEOPLE POWER
PEOPLE POWER

Reports show that in average, a man can generate 160 Watts of electricity by walking in normal speed for an hour, which equals to the amount of electricity needed to light up four 40 candlepower fluorescent tubes for an hour. Even a woman can keep the lights on for 37 minutes.This shows the workability of placing the system in parks. The feedback of the system stimulates interaction, which contributes to the environment and the society. This generates kinetic energy that can be converted into electrical power by using public recreation facilities, and provides electricity for park lamps with power storage systems.
