You guys are just wasting your time.....all you have to do is attach one of those fuel-line magnets and you'd get 150 mpg like I do.

You'll need one of those copper bracelets from the late 70's / early 80's that kills cancer ( the new ones don't work) so you'll live long enough to spend all the money you'll be saving on gas.

at 70w per home made panel I would need 496 of his homemade panels, at a cost for parts of $99,200 (and well over a year to build), and even at the DIY price it would take almost 14 years for the system to pay for itself (assuming it held together that long).


But I have this one weird old trick.. you see that same power company that hates that guy has all these subsidies and programs to help you build a solar installation..

Video is also 40 min long, so there is no way anyone from GD has an attention span long enough to sit through that.

Divide that by 24 hours in a day makes an average of 22.5 watts output, meaning we would need 4 panels ($800 and a couple of days work) to run a 100 watt bulb continuously.


What!??!?

Full-size 200-225-watt solar modules are now wholesaling for less than $1.00 per watt. Way less. Not just the Chinese ones either (many of which are perfectly good, anyway). I know of entire PV systems (modules, racking, inverters, labor, permitting, everything) for way less than $3.00 per watt. A 70-watt panel for under $200.00 is no bargain, unless you're buying it at the hobby shop in some piecemeal fashion. This stuff has become much cheaper in the last twelve months.

Are you a professional welder, or what?

I think I've had less than a half dozen electric bills over $100 since moving to OR in 2005.

I did have a gas water heater for a few years (maybe $60/month, tops) and I do have a dual-fuel stove (gas top, electric oven).

$600? FML!

No shit-I keep my apartment at about 72* during the summer in Phoenix and my power bill hasn't been more than $220 or so. 600 bucks a month is nuts-unless NH gets hotter than 120* in the summer...

I don't think it's snake oil, I think it's a bunch of DIY project plan,s and maybe parts, for off-the-grid power. It's just marketed with a little um, flair.

Typical arfcom passing judgement with zero knowledge.

I got his introductory kit and built my panels. See, what he doesn't tell you in the vid is that you set up some lights over your panels. That's right. PERPETUAL. FUCKING. POWER. GENERATION.

Still working out a few kinks to keep it running.
