Great for that Hydro Bill!

What a smart way to go green!
 
A disco pub in London, England, gets electricity produced by people dancing on their specially modified dance floor!
 
All the flashing strobes and pounding speakers at the dance club are massive consumers of electrical power. So Bar Surya re-outfitted its floor with springs that, when compressed by dancers, could produce electrical current that would be stored in batteries and used to offset some of the club’s electrical burden!!
 
Isn’t that smart!? 
 
The club’s owner, Andrew Charalambous, said the dance floor can now power 60 percent of the club’s energy needs. Love it!
