I have read somewhere that such energy harvesters have some environmental side effects, which may be harmful in the long run. However, I have not seen any empirical results of similar devices, nor for this current device being featured above. Would you be able to provide references to expert opinions, specifically engineers or consultants in the field? It would be great to have some references apart from the ones I find on the web. Books, or journals would be great to have.
