Solar-powered electricity systems have often been touted as a solution for those living without reliable access to electricity, but another Earthly force is also readily available (and doesnâEUR(TM)t surrender to inclement weather or nightfall): Gravity.

Something to watch out for .... would be great for Gaza homes, as well as all the off-grid parts of Africa, Afghanistan, ..... countries after catastrophes like Nepal, Bangladesh, Haiti, Pakistan ...

Seems very evident when you think about it - basically like using a slow dynamo with weight instead of a handle to turn .. cheaper & easier to make. Its only disadvantage it that it has to be attached to something sturdy .... not easily moved around

Thanks, Kathryn

Fabulous information. It can be a game changing technology that will illuminate without emissions or pollution.

I actually think this is rather brilliant! The day may come when NONE of us have access to traditional electrical and/or fossil fuel sources - such as in a catastrophe, and these would be excellent then.
