Hi, I am unsure which forum is most appropriate for this query but i'll start here. I am interested in building a device which works on the principle of using a stationary bike to drive an electrical generator to produce electricity, and, if practical, store it efficiently. Ultimately the energy produced by peddling the bike (by myself) I would like to use to power a set of 4x55watt flourescent bulbs in my hydroponics setup. I am a complete beginner and therefore do not expect a thorough technical plan on how to build such a setup more a point in the right direction for resources on which you think may be helpful. Also is this project a feasible one or would the power produced via peddling (a reasonable amount of exertion) be futile? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
