A lot of people begin to realize that modern amenities can still be enjoyed, even if you are going off the grid and you’re independent. Off the grid living is just that, not being connected to a grid.
In our case we will start with a Canyon Hydro — 350 kW Pelton wheel similar to the one picture above. This unit has a 350KW GE induction generator with servo control and grid switching gear. It is currently a 28 inch pitch Pelton wheel with a single 4.125 inch dia. nozzle (3.5 in effective jet) which can be upgraded to a two jet unit for more flow and therefore power. Our potential head is less than the design head so we will seek to increase flow. The variable jet control combined with the extra nozzle and pelton turbine gives a better range of efficiencies for our variable flow regime. A crossflow unit would probably be a better match but it has less efficiency.
If you get better at retaining customers you don’t need to find as many new ones to have the same level of sales as last year. So if you add as many customers as last year you’ll grow even faster. I have modelled this in spreadsheets. It is worth the time to do that – you wouldn’t believe the difference it can make.
One of the reasons solar energy was not used in the past was it could not be stored and used later. Modern technology has made many strides in storing and using renewable energy. In today’s world, batteries to store solar or wind generated energy are much more efficient.
There is just no question that our destiny will include a majority of renewable energy. We could include here a big, long list of renewable and power supplier technologies that we can utilize. But the important thing to remember is that all of us are going to have to find our way with products that suit us and our lifestyle. The desert does not have the same needs and resources as the beach. Or the deep south with its great heat. The north with its terribly severe winters. Not a great deal of similarity between the needs of those places.
The procedure to convert your car to hydrogen is safe and simple. What’s more, if you want to sell your car on or return it at the end of a lease agreement, this technology is completely reversible. No warranties will be voided. hydropower is an add-on to improve your car’s fuel efficiency.
There is an increasing interest in the raw food diet as a way of redressing this balance. Some people are simply adding more raw fresh food into their diet whilst others have gone totally raw. Of course you can still have a raw food diet that doesn’t meet your nutritional needs because you have missed out some of essential vitamin and mineral components and haven’t got the balance right. So you have to do it right. But for those that have, the results are astonishing, in terms of health, energy and vitality.
Attic insulation should be up to 200mm thick. It is laid between ceiling joists and over them. Pink glass sheets with paper vapor barrier, come in rolls, and can be used with little mess. Plastic beads, blown in glass wool or sprayed on foam insulation can be used. Heat rises, so attic insulation will stop the heat from being wasted. Lack of attic insulation is one of the biggest energy wasters. It doesn’t make much sense to pay huge heat bills for energy that is going through the roof.
