This post is my contribution to sustainablog’s Pedal-a-Watt Powered Blogathon this weekend. The long-running green blog (and new green shopping site) is publishing for 24 hours straight to raise funds for the Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage in Northeastern Missouri. Go join the fun: read post contributions from around the green blogosphere, leave a comment to be entered in a drawing for some great green prizes, and join in the Tweetchat at #susbppb.
A dance floor that creates energy actually does exist, just not at EcoVillage–yet!
From Sustainable Rotterdam and Club Watt:
The Sustainable Dance Floor, a concept devised by the Sustainable Dance Club has become reality at Club Watt. This movable surface, measuring about 30 square metres, converts the kinetic energy from dancers into electricity which is used to light up the floor. This is the first dance floor which actually uses the energy generated by the people dancing on it.</blockquote
