Local Energy For All
A time is coming when oil and gas will start to run out in the quantities required by the millions who live on this planet.
Electricity will be the main energy that will run our world, generated by wind, hydro, solar, nuclear and Off Grid Generators.
Learning from the Past
But, have we missed a way of renewable electrical generation from the past period of the Victorian Industrial Revolution that could provide all the electrical energy anywhere on earth 24 hours a day, 365 days a year?
I have always been interested in machinery from the past especially the Victorian area and believe we have lost the ability to do many things for ourselves. We have become so dependant on large commercial enterprises and have lost many of the skills our forefathers were so use to applying each day. For example; how many of us now produce our own food or know how to fix the roof when it leaks. Do we know how to replace a window? I confess I just go to the supermarket or call an expert if the roof needs fixing.
Now in semi-retirement I am trying to rediscover my DIY skills (at least some of them) and start making things for myself again. So the idea of generating my own electricity has been in my mind for some time. I have looked at many crazy inventions and some very interesting renewable energy systems on the internet but it was not until I saw machines from the Victorian period my mind started to explore an idea, so the "Off Grid Generator" was born.
