The idea of free, renewable energy has always fascinated me. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if there were such a thing, so you never have to pay for fuel? I really wish that someone out there would design some sort of an exercise bike which can convert the pedal power into real electricity! How cool would that be?? I am sure the technology exists, and I am so sure that it would be of great appeal. Just imagine a machine that will really motivate you to exercise by paying you, in free energy.
But anyway, today I found out that Carrefour sells Solar Powered lamps. And the most amazing thing is that it costs only $9. Not being one who spends on an impulse, I promptly bought a lamp. I mean I have been waiting for years for something like this! Apparently you can install this lamp in your garden or something. It has a solar panel that will collect and store the solar energy in a rechargeable battery. And come night time, it will automatically switch itself on with the solar energy that was stored in the day time. How cool is that??? It’s currently sitting beneath my desk lamp and storing that energy as well. In time to come, I can even use this as a makeshift way to charge all my rechargeable batteries!!
