Re: Human-Powered electricity generating..?
...So assuming 200 Watts after a while of getting in to shape, and 2 hours/day, and 75% efficiency, a good working number would be something like 300 Watt-hours a day for one's 2 hours of exercise.
Wow, that's quite something!
So with a couple of fixed flexible solar panels, a decent sized battery bank and daily top ups with human powered electricity you'd have enough to meet the power needs of a small liveaboard sailing yacht it seems! hurrah!
