Description

Imagine a RecPlex where the energy you spend working out is transformed into electrical energy. Used not only to turn on the lights, but keep where you exercise cool. Advancing technologies in the modern world have made this a reality. Campuses all over the country are starting to incorporate this kind of equipment into their recreation centers. Machines that generate electricity and floors that transfer kinetic energy are two such examples. However, is this idea realistic? What would be the cost and the benefits if a RecPlex like ours were to be built with this technology? Our goal was to find out what students could do to improve the campus for a more Green influence.
