I’ve been living off the grid for a few years now, using a converted water powered F&P washing machine motor to generate more than enough power to run all the appliances & hot water I use in my house.//via:  Angry Ram

As well as powering all the tools I use in my workshop. In that time I’ve saved many thousands of dollars from not having to pay power bills. In this detailed video I’ll show you how it’s done.

Suitable for most 12 – 30 volt applications. Once rewired, all you need is a way to spin the motor to produce enough power to run the average energy efficient home or supplement a solar powered home. The generator is capable of ~29V/21A: just over 600W. With a larger water jet, the rig can reach 900W.

Attach it to a windmill, hydro turbine, water wheel, biogas engine or even a bicycle. The power from the motor will charge a battery bank connected to a 120v or 240v dc-ac inverter to run ordinary household appliances, lights, heating etc.
