The Ramp operates by virtue of a number of articulated plates placed in the road. When vehicles weight is exerted on the plates they are moved up and down and by means of a specially designed mechanism, a generator is driven, which is capable of producing AC or DC current.
In either event, the generator's output will vary according to the frequency and weight of traffic, but in general terms will be capable of producing between 5 and 10kW.
The ramp is unobtrusive, silent in operation, causes no discomfort to the vehicles occupants and is entirely safe in operation. The Ramp requires the minimum of maintenance and may be used for generating electricity to power street lighting, traffic lights or road signs, with the surplus being fed into the national grid. It can also store electricity within a storage battery for future use.
