Pavement generates electricity – level 1

29-05-2015 15:00

This news is from London. People put special slabs into the pavement. These slabs make electricity when somebody walks over them.

The electricity can power a streetlight, for example. It also can be put into batteries.

This technology is not only in London. People use it around the world.

Difficult words: slab (a big piece), pavement (“road” for people who are walking), power (to send energy to).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
