WELL SAVE / water pipes, energency


“WELL SAVE”is the power generating system by small stream of water. The size of WELL SAVE’s fan blades are fitted at water-pipes in every house hold. Based on the equation “P (power) =1/2*p (water density)*A (blade area)*V (velocity)”. WELL SAVE can turn the kinetic energy from water into electricity to support the power system at home. The device only shows the amount of energy remaining so that it doesn’t consume additional power . The exterior of WELL SAVE is in white, to fit in with the color inside of the house.
