Road Ramp generator turns your brakes into power



The Road Ramp generator is more effective than wind turbines and gives a second bang, so to speak, from what is presently wasted petrol. Optimally installed in ramps where the vehicle has to slow anyhow, the Road Ramp sucks out some of the spare kinetic energy at a cost of only 20 pennies a kWH – far lower than wind power. The heavier the vehicle running over the ramp, the more power it generates, so for once the SUVs will be doing more than their share. Designed by Peter Hughes of Dorset. [GT]
