Checkout power

Sainsbury’s is trialling an electro-hydraulic system to generate power for the checkouts

The system uses plates that are pushed down when a car travels over them, thus generating electricity which will then be used to power the checkouts at its store in Gloucester. The plates are installed on a slope, so they aren’t just taking the energy away from driver’s vehicles.
