Power Underneath / Street lights

Power Underneath
Power Underneath

This streetlight design utilizes the theory of generating electricity from water power-- turning its kinetic energy into electricity. On the basis of observation, there are always streetlights and sewers on both sides of the city streets. Once the water on the street runs by the streetlights and down into the sewers, the blades will be propelled and thus generates electricity. Besides, energy can also be gathered when the sewage moves in the sewers. In this way, overlooked energy around us can be utilized for lighting.
