Electricity is the most general forms of energy used across the world. This paper focuses on designing a setup that leads to the generation of electrical energy which is going to waste when humans are walking. Footsteps are an untapped natural resources. This generated energy is, however, costeffective and nonhazardous for human. Electrical energy can be produced by converting mechanical energy using footsteps. Generating the electric power through the fabrication of footstep arrangement by a prototype comprises of a pipe, nozzle, unidirectional valve, water reservoir, turbine, and DC motor. Whenever pressure is exerted on the reservoir, water flows through the nozzle into the turbine and generates electrical energy. This energy is stored in the battery. This project will reduce the global warming and load shedding in a much cleaner cost-effective way. Since this project is related directly to the human movement, the weight of the setup is a crucial factor.
