  1. DIY - Do It Yourself
    Hi, my first post here, I hope someone can help, tho it may be a little technical. I have this large washing machine brushless motor, which is about to become the generator on my wind turbine project. My questions are; 1) is it best to remove the hall sensor and tie the wire ends together, or...
  2. Texas
    Would like your best ideas on wind & solar produced power. What you have built, tested & proven to work. On say a 10x big truck battery bank. All I'm looking for is ideas on the charging system. Homemade or cheap windmills, rotating solar arrays, etc... Pics would be great! Budget cheap...
  3. Urban Survival
    http://www.outsidethebeltway.com/oklahoma-to-charge-homeowners-who-install-solar-panels/ Disclaimer: This link popped up on Survival Blog. I read this article, and honestly, it struck me as badly as the western states who claimed that all rainfall was theirs, and anyone gathering rainfall...
  4. Manmade and Natural Disasters
    Between trees, power lines, closed roads, cancelled flights, damaged buildings, brush fires, and jack-knifed big rigs, is everyone around Austin ok?
  5. Food and water
    Our water comes from a private well and I've asked the local solar power companies about getting the well pump on it's own solar power, but they have both turned me down. I was really surprised. One company pointed me in the direction of DC well pumps, but I'm not sure that's exactly what I...

  7. Polls and Surveys
    Ok folks, I was given the green light to make a poll on if there's a high enough demand for a thread dedicated for Renewable energy projects, discussions, and questions. To save from having to post in the General/Disaster Preparedness/DYI sections, I propose a new Thread for topics related to...
  8. DIY - Do It Yourself
    Allright, I just re-roofed the primary house & doubled the number of those round turbine "vertical" whirleygigs (to pull/vent this hot Texas summer heat out of our attic!). Now I cant help but watch those silver puppies out my kitchen window, just spinning like crazy 24/7! Seems to me we could...
  9. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Wanted to call attention to a new-to-me publication that could be a big boon to folks looking for alternate energy information. Home Power Magazine ( http://homepower.com/home/ ) is available in both print and online form and provides comprehensive, technical coverage of solar, wind, and...
  10. General Discussion
    I have lived of the grid for almost 15 years with a combo of solar and wind power which provide almost all the power I need for my entire house. I am more then willing to share any and all info about this to help you avoid the costly mistakes I have made over the many years of experience doing...
