WaterPod Bicycle Energy Generator
The Bicycle Energy Generator will use kinetic energy supplied through a mechanical system and return usable DC current by means of a direct current energy generator. Direct current will then run through an electrical circuit and eventually be stored in a bank of marine batteries. This battery bank will provide a source of usable energy for the Water Pod community. Keywords:
