Who knows about this? An electrostatic generator that uses the flow of two streams of water to generate static electricity.

Are we looking at something that could potentially be used to charge a battery (presumably through some intermediate steps)?

Could it be a way of using an irrigation process to generate electricity?

Not thinking in terms of powering a house, but what about charging a battery for a servo-motor that opens and closes the irrigation valves?

Seems like there has got to be something it could be used for, and it also seems like a screaming opportunity to stack functions

But I know close to bupkus about electricity.

Someone around here has got to know about these things Talk to us, please.

If this potential energy could make a stable electro-magnetic field -something might be done with Rare Earth magnets-

There! I think I just showed the world my poor understanding of Electro-magnetic theory ! Big AL
