Today, Mon Oct 10, 2016 I Generated 110.5 Wh http://www.los-gatos.ca.us/davidbu/pedgen/workout.html My converted freezer if using one seventh of the energy that my full-sized refrigerator used to use. If I was not working full time, I could ride two hours a day (and surf the web the whole time with that power) and it would power the refrigerator as well. IN ADDITION to powering all my other devices. Amazing. Today, Sun Oct 09, 2016 I Generated 110.5 Wh http://www.los-gatos.ca.us/davidbu/pedgen/workout.html Hot day - almost 90 degrees.
