Everyone has seen the big trucks going up and down our highways and byways, carrying their loads to their destinations and keeping the economy afloat. But thanks to inventor Terry Kenny this trucks could keep our lights afloat as well. Terry embedded hydraulic tanks in the asphalt, and the trucks weight create a pumping action, which in turn powers generators, creating electric power.
The Dragon Station currently generates an impressive 5000 to 7000 kilowatt hours daily, which could power around 1,750 homes. This really shows a practical recovery of energy expended on our highways. Now if only we could do something similar here at the Beach, although I am not sure we have the traffic volume to really make it worthwhile. One more thing, I do have to mention that Mike was right, this kind of power production is practical.
