It's what I do.. :P

Anyways.. have a peltier, a parabolic mirror, and a coldish river, anything flowing, and a few heatsinks. Have the mirror aimed at one side of the peltier and the river on the other, which will produce something like 12V, and some amount of current.

On another hand, get a river, and buy a hydraulic ram pump.

Wouldn't it be easier to put the slave on one of those electricity producing bikes and make him go? It's much more efficient to bike than to stir says I

Oh, I forgot how that will produce water current :P. Either the bike can be suspended over the body of water and have paddles attached, or it can be attached to a pump (air or water), or both :P

Anyways, did we ever figure out what the op wanted?
