  • I think the value of this idea is not in the energy that is produced but in the amount of energy that might be saved. We waste a lot of energy. People do not seem to have any sense of how much energy they waste. Lights are left on for hours when rooms are empty. Fans run for hours when no one is home. TVs play to empty rooms. Either people do not mind spending their money on wasted energy or they do not mind wasting someone else’s money. The harvesting of exercise equipment energy will never generate more than a small fraction of one percent of the energy we use each day. However, if we realize just how much “work” is involved in generating the energy we use, we would be much more aware of our energy use and would likely stop wasting so much.

No public wish lists :(
