How efficient is it?[edit source]
For an example with 300watt pedaled electric generator
From 0-15mph only using 1.8liter inline 4 cylinder engine with 40mpg average (90hp),1mile of driving 40mpg car would be using 0.025gallon of fuel. From 15-62mph only be using
Permanent magnet AC synchronous motor (90hp)with 4.4kw lithium
battery pack and lets say I live 22 miles away from my work place
and have to drive to work 6 days a week to with my plug-in prius. Every day, I have to drive out to highway, which is half mile
long from my house and from that is 20miles all the way 45mph limit and need to drive one more half mile on 15mph zone.
I will be using around 0.1 gallon of total fuel (0.5miles
for less than 15mph * 4) and using 0.89484 mega joules which is 248.57 watt total(calculated only be using 20hp).
This simple calculation shows that just riding pedaled
electric generator for an hour could be used as burning 2 gallons of fuel outputting emissions and 10dollors
of money with 11mpg cars.

Pedaled electric generator is one of simple alternative energy systems that could be
used in any place to generate electricity without any harms on the environment. This
could be used in a large scale, for an simple ex: putting millions of dollars to
put power lines on not urbanized communities/areas < 1000 pedaled electric
generator( intense riders/3.4hr)would be 1Mega watts.
