Each rotation of a revolving door generates enough electricity to power a 60-watt light bulb for 23 minutes. Revolving doors also equalize indoor temperatures, save lots of money, and reduce carbon output.- Andrew Shea

…according to a study in 2006 by Urban Planning students at MIT, we could each save $7,500 a year and conserve enough energy to heat five homes, while saving 14.6 tons of carbon collectively, if everyone used revolving doors in just one building. Multiply those figures by the number of buildings that have revolving doors and the savings would be enormous. – Andrew Shea

Andrew Shea gives detailed information about how revolving doors can make energy and how we can use it. He also added and experiment for all of to try at home

As my own experiment proves, a well-designed sign can make all the difference. So if you live or work in a building with a revolving door, I’ve created an open-sourced toolkit full of templates that you can download. Just customize the poster and signs with your color scheme, your logo, and add your address and contact information. If you need a printer to fabricate your signs, check Inker Linker for one in your area. Once you have the signs printed, add the directional arrows to your swinging doors, the circular facts to your revolving doors, and use the 8.5″ x 14″ poster near the entryway. Cold-blooded people like me will thank you for plugging your drafty lobbies. – Andrew Shea
