Earth Day Every Day!

This idea came to me while I was peddling in the Track Town Power Station at the US Track & Field Olympic trials. In the Power Station, exercise bikes generated power which was stored in a large bank of batteries. Supposedly the setup was powering lights and TV’s in both the Power Station pavilion and on the main stage. It's a really neat example of what's possible, but will such a system become a practical household reality? Perhaps... But my question is: would, or could, the average American actually use such a system?
