The rubber band engine is cheap and easy to make, and can be adapted easily enough to run on heat from a solar capture device.
This type of engine isn’t the most efficient device, but if you have been looking into power generation systems, then you already know that most systems are inefficient.
To generate a reasonable amount of electricity, the device either has to be very large or made from materials that are very expensive. Add in the cost of batteries and voltage regulators, and it may seem impossible to gain energy independence.
But why wouldn’t give this little fellow a chance and try to make one for your homestead?
America’s power grid is ancient and in an advanced state of decay. The modern technology allows us to adopt a more eco-friendly attitude regarding energy and also to save money and become more independent and self-sustained.
After an EMP, you will have to know how to use natural resources – sun, wind, water, wood – to produce your own electricity. So, why not starting preparing right now?
As weather patterns continue to shift, there is no escaping the fact that massive floods are becoming more common. Especially now, in the spring, when snow begins to melt and they are likely to happen even more than in any other time of the year.
While flooding may be a common event in some parts of the world, other areas are now becoming aware of several problems related to generating electricity during and after a flood occurs.
In the modern world, it is all too easy to be distracted by talk about terrorism, martial law, and other problems caused by humans in relation to survival scenarios. On the other hand, in the last few years, natural disasters have claimed just as many lives and can put your life at risk at any moment.
For example, you can most likely name at least one or two regions of the world that were struck by devastating earthquakes in the last five years alone.
If you do not know how to generate electricity or harness other forms of power in this type of crisis, you will find it very hard to survive.
