A way to get more electricity.
Option 1 is to distribute piezo-electric dental plates and ear pieces to Bruxism suffers and the power goes into the grid, for which they get paid. Top generators get the option to join a three-shift system, so the country never gets short of electricity at peak periods.
2 is to make a deal with a country 8 times zones away, their power can be sent down the power cable.
Both of these options have an emergency boost capability, in that the power company can hit a switch and worrying whispered comments can be fed to the earpieces of generators to up the generation rate.
Option 3 is more of a variety pack, for example a hidden spring loaded cable to people's quilts/duvets which drags off the [whatever you choose to call it] during the night and the sleepers have to try and wrestle it back on again, and so on.
also similar concept, but the other way around

If the energy transfer is reversible, I would like to see the "generator" as a "motor"
