Anyway, the energy from the sun is free and non-polluting, so it doesn't matter that much.I had done one experiment by using the microscopic lens beam focused on to paper thats get burned.I learned that solar is the massive heater.

littlewop wrote:where did you get the 35KWH ? rishi what turbine size and array are you talking about? So I shouldnt even ask about this, acording to you it won't be worth $400. to try to make a backyard array. I must be at the wrong website I didn't know I would be shut down before anybody had a chance to put together any ideas. I saw one guy(discovery channel) with an array in his backyard supplying 4 homes but I don't know any specs.So I ask here and get shut down.He used Mylar sheets and a steam generator it used about 200 square feet of room. Didnt any else see this? I did not see how large the steam tank was .

I HAVE THIS MODELED TO ACHIEVE NEAR ZERO WITH NO ATTACHMENT TO THE ELECTRICAL GRID. I WANT TO PUT THE FROSTING ON THE CAKE WITH AN ARRAY OF MAGNIFYING GLASSES ARRANGED ON AN ARC BAND SHAPED TO THE PARTICULAR LATITUDE AND HINGED TO PIVOT, FOLLOWING THE SUNS MOVEMENT FROM NORTH TO SOUTH. THIS WOULD HEAT WATER OR GENERATE STEAM IN AN INSULATED TANK IN THE CENTER OF THE UTILITY ROOM.. I WELCOME SOLUTIONS. I AM BUILDING THIS HOME NOW. TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE. I AM A SERVANT OF MANKIND & WISH TO SHARE IDEAS.
