Dr. John, I was holding back for a while to comment on that very thing. The tiny scale of the energies produced makes it impractical. Cranking something for a few minutes would produce considerably more electricity.:)

They have figured out you can get more energy from larger raindrops!

D'uh!

Do you think this will be developed for practical use?:)





power from Rain?

Then Britain will be a major power exporter, out rivalling Saudia Arabia Venezuela and Russia combined, but then our government will find some way of taxing the rain, and like every thing else they have done they will make a mess of things , like exporting raindrop power to other countries for two pence per therm and then buying back from them at 2 per term like they do with the Gas . jmb

The problem with ideas like this becoming a reality, is that it would put a lot of people out of business. Oil is a very big industry and if it means that we have to continue poluting our world so these big oil companies keep making their money, then so be it.

Remember that money comes first, so far as they are concerned.

The future generations are too far away and the world could end by then, so this water idea will just stay that way, "An idea"
