Can you power a light with your feet? Yes!
There are seven billion people in the world, walking, running, rolling, and moving at any given moment in some form or another. Every footfall made carries force as we propel ourselves in motion.The average footstep generates seven kilowatts of power and the average human is said to take 150 million steps in a lifetime. That’s a lot of kinetic energy!
Since we’re all about efficiency and conserving energy at Legend Power, the thought of all that wasted energy seems such a shame. However, thanks to a new technology, there’s no need to be wasteful with our feet and energy anymore. Pavegen tiles have been developed by the company, Pavegen, in order to harness this unused kinetic energy and convert it into a form that can be used for power applications or stored in batteries.
It’s a renewable energy source that we’ve had right under feet our whole lives (pun intended)! Can you imagine the energy saved and harnessed if you combined these tiles with our Harmonizer in one place? We can.
