Burger King testing energy generation from drive-thru
"It's very exciting to be involved in the early testing and development of a brand new technology designed to generate electricity from the motion of vehicles. More than 150,000 cars drive through our Hillside (Burger King) store alone each year, and I think it would be great to capture the wasted kinetic energy of these hundreds of thousands of cars to generate clean electricity," stated Andrew Paterno, owner of the New Jersey location.
In their press release, New Energy believes their technology could easily be installed at high traffic locations such as toll booths, traffic intersections, rest areas, travel plazas, border crossings, neighborhoods with traffic calming zones, and drive-thrus similar to the Burger King test site.
