Generates renewable energy by opening the taps
Citizens from Portland in the USA now they will be able to generate renewable energy by simply opening their water taps, using their toilets or showering. Fast Company reports that the city of Oregon is using a system to generate green energy with the help of water that flows through the city's pipelines. Some small turbines installed inside the pipes are activated when the water flows, the energy is sent to a generator and this to the electrical network.
Unlike other forms of renewable energy generation, such as solar or wind, the Lucid system can produce energy at any time of the day, because water always flows. The only downside is that the turbines can only produce energy where the water flows naturally downwards by gravity. Lucid pipes contain sensors that can monitor the quality of the water that flows through the pipes, so in addition to being a power generation technology,
