The human being in the present days without electricity is very difficult for survival. Drastic increase of population demands more electrical energy to meet their day to day requirements, but by using conventional resources to generate electricity is insufficient to meet the requirement. Hence, to conquer this problem, the authors suggested new methodology of generating electricity from non conventional resources. The present work focus on renewable sources of energy, which are popular because of pollution free and abundantly available from the nature. One such energy is generating electricity by using speed breakers; it is innovative and new concept. Most of the roads are crowded with vehicles; there is a chance of tapping the kinetic energy of moving vehicles into electrical energy through speed breaker. The developed rack and pinion mechanism is used to convert this kinetic energy into electrical energy through flat spiral torsion spring, which is the crucial part of the mechanism and used to store and release the energy. The model developed using SOLID WORKS software and spiral spring is analyzed through ANSYS software and results were found satisfactory. The generated electricity is used to illuminate traffic signals, sign boards, direction boards and street lights etc.
