Power plant / Tree power light

Power plant
Power plant

Power plant takes advantage of more than 70 percent of organic material which are excreted through the roots via photosynthesis that cannot be used originally. As naturally-occurring bacteria around the roots break down, electrons are released. By placing an electrode close to the bacteria to absorb these electrons, electricity could be generated.
Power plant’s is shaped like a potting, which makes plants can be grown inside it. The bottom of Power plant is equipped with generator and electrical storage device. Besides, the height of the light on the upper part of it could be adjusted to meet different needs and reach power-saving goal.
