A friend of mine sent me this video, check it out.
That is great! I love seeing fun put to good use.
I take the stairs up and down 3 flights at my condo unless I am carrying a lot of stuff (laundry baskets, grocery bags). I get a little exercise and save a little electricity.
Too bad they can’t turn the escalator off to save electricity but you do need to provide a way for everyone and not everyone can take the stairs.
I wonder if they can find a way to power the escalator from the energy of the people using the stairs. Hook it up to a battery pack or capacitors or something and supplement it with the house electric in slow periods.
I wonder too if they could have the escalator activated by someone approaching it so it doesn’t need to be running when no one is around.
Give us a call, we can help.
