This product is designed to allow people to get some energy by themselves where there is an insufficient power supply. Especially, in Africa, there are still many people who can’t enjoy proper electric-power services and most of the people can’t even enjoy this basic right due to the lack of electricity. So I was focused on changing the wasted water into another type of energy source. If we apply this product to the existing pipe lines or to new ones which will be produced, it will be a very valuable energy source for the people who’s lives will become improved even with a small bit of light. And we can also enlighten people that the water we use is a valuable resource that can be used again as another source of energy.
