Yes we did and it's my fault, wave a red red in front of a bull and expect things to happen. So let us return to electricity generation as Obbummmer is clearly determined to crash the gird which is even now LONG overdue for upgrades.
YOUTUBE Lister 6/1. I would send a picture of my little generating shed but the real engineers on this board would laugh me out of town.http://bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=2060 ... bHcz0ryM_E
I bought four Lister 6/1s coupled to a 4 crapola Indian, thrown together, 5KW alternators. These are 1930 design, low IP, pressure, indirect injection, 6HP diesel motors. These turn ultra slow and are good for many years. The fisherman in Glouster (MA) will tell you they last forever. They thrive on WVO that I got from the local Japanese restaurant as they did not have the volume to pay a recycler. All this is well known and documented, read utterpower.com for more info. Where it was getting interesting was down the road is Prosser chicken farm and over the road is Johnsons pig farm. I found that mixing these two together and leave in the sunshine for a few days and man do you have methane. Now I start with kerosene and gradually inject methane carefully (my right eyebrow never fully recovered). You can generate enough power with one unit to power a home. My little farm requires a lot more power so I bought four. So it's not really free electricity like I was hoping for but it's close and requires a lot of labor.
Observations, perspirations and bloviations anyone.
There we go, Sam we are back on topic.
