Looking for some alternatives to the typical holiday electric fare this year? What is a better Christmas present that a reduced energy bill? While some of us get creative with LED solar powered Christmas string lights, an aquarium in Japan has resolved this problem in by powering a Christmas tree with an electric eel!
See video below:
The Enoshima Aquarium in Kamakura (south of Tokyo) utilizes the eels ability to generate electricity when moving. It effectively powers a two meter Christmas tree. While the power generated isn’t enough to provide consistent light, it is strong enough to allow intermittent flashing.
See video below:
To further add to its eco-friendliness, the aquarium, have also added a robotic Santa Claus powered by human muscle. When visitors to the aquarium step on a pad, it generates electricity.
While the idea of using eel to promote eco-awareness is certainly a good one, you should probably stick with something like solar powered Christmas lights to create our own green Christmas. The decorative outdoor lights are an ideal addition to any home, but with an energy efficient twist you won’t feel guilty when they turn on night after night.
Solar String Lights are ideal to light up your trees, rooftops, doorways, pathways, windows and porches. No wiring. Fast and easy to install. Energy saving, recharged by solar panel under sunlight. Lights turn on automatically when dark. Safe, corrosion/water resistant.
