Portland Installs Turbines in City Water Pipes To Create Free Electricity

If you live in Portland, Oregon, your lights are now powered in part by the water flowing through your pipes.

The city recently installed new municipal water pipes equipped with four 42-inch turbines that create electricity from the water passing through them.

Historyically, hydropower has been created by damming rivers and installing turbines inside the dams, which can be damaging to fish and the river itself.

Tap-water hydropower creates virtually no effect on wildlife, as it is simply harnessing the energy of water that’s already flowing through the pipes.

“It’s pretty rare to find a new source of energy where there’s no environmental impact,” saysGregg Semler, CEO of Lucid Energy, the Portland-based startup that designed the new system.

“But this is inside a pipe, so no fish or endangered species are impacted. That’s what’s exciting.”

Another bonus about hydro-power is, unlike wind and solar, it’s always working as long as water is flowing.

The turbines can only be installed in places where municipal water pipes flow downhill, as using electricity to pump water through them would defeat the purpose.

The four turbines are expected to produce at least $2 million worth of free electricity over the next 20 years. More turbines would produce more.

A larger tap-water hydro-power system could have a major impact in places like California where 20% of total energy consumption goes toward treating and pumping water to farms, residents and businesses, Fast Company notes.

Lucid Energy already has a pilot program in place in Riverside, California, where they city’s water utility is using the turbines to offset operating costs during the day and power streetlights at night.

Book Select: Ring Makers of Saturn

“Amazing engineering feats in the realm of Saturn, the giant gas planet. Dr. Norman Bergrun’s work Ringmakers of Saturn is one to be read and pondered. Share with scientific friends, the amazing photos taken from NASA spacecraft offer evidence that there are giant space vehicles in Saturn space performing incredible engineering work on the rings of the giant gas planet.Screen shot 2014-03-19 at 8.52.55 AM The book comes handsomely bound and is printed in Scotland by Pentland Press. This book, designed to be around for some time, belongs in your science library.”

Years of follow-on analysis of Ringmakers of Saturn has led to the conclusion that EMV’s (ElectroMagnetic Vehicle’s) role in the solar system is tremendously significant. Their ability to create powerful destructive forces has become an issue that global society must not delay to reckon with.

Ringmakers of Saturn, being an out-of-print product, has been a good investment for those who have bought new copies and sold them used at elevated prices. The highest offer for a used copy is in the neighbor- hood of $2600.00. Accordingly, a new-copy price has been established at $2995.00.

Book Select: Ether Technology

Book Select: Ether Technology

Ether Technology is a great book shedding much needed light free energy. Advances is technology are be being suppressed because It will render current primitive ways of providing energy useless. If we do not depend on gas … gas companies will not thrive and so on. Furthermore the power of ether technology has and can possibly be used to leave the planet!
