We are developing a low-cost microgenerator attachment that is compatible with a household push lawn mower, designed to be used in emergency situations. This microgenerator will be more affordable than commercial generators, enabling lower-to-middle class homeowners with a source of power for essential appliances during power outages. It will also be non-destructive for quick set-up and to allow the continued grass-cutting functioning of the lawn mower following its use as a microgenerator.
