The energy potential of sand static

  1. Jan 11, 2006 #1
    Would it be possible or practical to access the electric potential of wind-generated sand static in the desert?

    I'll have to look into the phenomenon, but offhand I'd think not. Static isn't a really useful form of electricity in everyday circumstances.
