Throwing away one aluminum can wastes the same amount of energy as filling it half way with gasoline and then dumping in the drain. Facts like this inspired me to construct a magnetic generator for my senior project.
Current solar technology is inefficient and expensive › Only 20% of light becomes energy › 1 solar panel – $1,000 Magnetic generators have zero emissions and can be placed anywhere. This technology was available decades ago.
Newton: “Energy cannot be created nor destroyed” No more water can be removed from the cup than is already present (energy on earth) Unless the cup is already under a faucet (earth)
Our society is not limited by a lack of technology, but by a hunger for power. People would not be powerless due to geography, and power outages would be left in the past.
Fossil fuels are currently being consumed at a rate 100,000 times faster than they are formed. Oil companies represent a large amount of money globally. Fossil fuels drive the world, and have led to many wars.
Oil is the most relied on source of energy, supporting 90% of transportation needs, and nearly 40% of all energy needs. Coal supports upwards of 90% of all domestic energy needs in the United States, and is currently the largest source of unregulated mercury emissions in the country.
When you drive up to a traffic light, your car changes the magnetic field of wire underneath you. This sends a signal to change the light to allow you to pass.
Getting magnets to stick on wheel Winding 900 turns of two copper wires together on one spool
During one test a large part of the wiring caught on fire. I had to rewire the entire project because the parts became overloaded.
Magnetic generators are simply no longer the focus of tomorrow. This technology was never manufactured, and never truly caught on. The focus is now on solar panels and wind turbines.
Each are fairly inefficient and subject to weather conditions. Large farms are made with these. This technology is still something that can be monopolized and sold to consumers. This maintains the positions of power companies, which would loose revenue is personal magnetic generators were mass produced.
Look into alternative energy sources Think about switching to natural gas Reduce carbon footprint Build a magnetic generator › Take the time to take advantage of this
