Inventor:

Michael Torrey

The Concept:

A device that captures the energy in your home's faucets!

When a person uses the sink to get a drink, wash hands, etc., the water flows through the water turbine connected to the faucet, causing it to revolve and power a generator. The generator generates electricity for charging batteries.
