My project is a grid-tied exercise bike. The power generated by pedaling turns a generator that sends electricity to the house; excess power generated beyond what the house needs is fed back to the utility lines. The bike uses a high efficiency belt drive and a DC generator with regenerative controller. Applications of this product include individuals converting human energy to electricity for their home to rooms full of these machines in gyms to help power the building.
