Abstract

We look to provide a better source of energy for all people. The current sources of energy that are provided are outdated and need to be replaced. The current renewable sources have many flaws such as the inconsistencies of solar and wind, or the danger of nuclear power plants. Also the nonrenewable resources that we have used over the past century, fossil fuels cause about 78% of the pollution to our atmosphere alone. We gave a survey to 100 people yielding a result that shows the emphasis of our issue. 75% of people to took our survey said they would be interested in eliminating fossil fuels and switching to green energy if we could produce it as consistently as fossil fuels. To do this we are going to use something common that every town has, trains. The force a train creates while running down the track is of enormous amounts of force. Knowing this we plan to harness the power of the trains to turn a generator and distribute power to others.
