  • An individual scale renewable form of electrical generation not requiring gas powered generators and eliminating the concomitant risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.
  • Provide power during power outages.  During hurricanes users are able to provide power for heating, microwaves, mobile devices and high efficiency lighting while they are without power.
  • Eliminates the need for ideal conditions as with solar and wind sourced electrical generation.

3) Stakeholders include home-owners, renters, insurance companies, municipal and emergency services.

4)

  • Poll municipal and emergency departments to determine administrative levels of interest.
  • Determine potential high-risk affected areas.
  • Survey community members of potential areas levels of interest in either subsidized assistance encouraging personal/individual ownership or community purchase in public spaces for “bicycle” hub charging areas (where you bring your own bike, and recharge your cell etc).
