Build Your Own Permanent Magnet Electrical Generator for Free Electricity

Did you know that you can do away with part or all of your electricity bill by fabricating your own, inexpensive permanent magnet generator? There is no expense to produce power this way, even though the generator does require a small amount of electricity to keep it spinning up to speed. The machinery even produces its own electric power for that. After it is spinning at full speed, it needs no outside electric power at all to keep it functioning perpetually. Actually, these machines are capable of producing approximately 5 times the electricity they need to keep turning.

How much do the parts cost to make a permanent magnet generator? The answer may astonish you: Between $100 and $500, depending on the size of the permanent magnetic generator and, even better, the parts are easily obtainable just about anywhere. You can find them at your nearest hardware or home improvement store.

Complete schematics, parts lists and instructions are immediately available for a very low expense, often less than $50. These instructions are so easy to track that just about anyone can easily fabricate a permanent magnet generator on their own. After you have fabricated 1 or 2 for your own use, it is easy to begin a money-making venture centered on building these generators for the public. If you end up showing more power than you can utilize and if you are still hooked up to utility power, you can sell the surplus back to the electric company when your electric meter operates backwards.

Permanent magnet generators are pollution-free and give off no toxic fumes. They are quiet and donít need much space. You might even locate one in the interior of a city apartment to chop your power bill to zero. Some people fabricate smaller permanent magnet generators to provide part of their electricity needs, thus shrinking their monthly invoice from the electric company. Others put together larger permanent magnet generators that can provide approximately seven thousand watts, enough to electrify a small house. If you need even more electric power, you can easily harness the output of 2 or more machines together to make up any amount of free electricity.

To give you a concept of what seven thousand watts of electric power can operate, I have a 1600 square foot residence in Hawaii that has been completely sustained on solar power since 1999. It has an array of 40 solar panels, each with an output of 75 watts. 40 x 75 watts = 3000 watts. With just 3000 watts (and a battery bank), I can use my computer and refrigerator all day, cook my meals in a microwave oven and use a toaster. At night, I can watch 1 or 2 DVDís while powering a small TV and a surround sound system. I keep the lights switched off when not needed. All light bulbs are the fluorescent type.

In the summer, when the Hawaiian sun shines brightly from dawn to dusk, I do not even need to think about how much electricity I am utilizing. In the winter, when the days are shorter and when there are more gray days, I have to turn off the main power switch before I go to bed and turn it back on at daybreak. The electrical refrigerator just "coasts" all night and the food is still reasonably cold in the morning. Where I run into run into difficulty is if I have to deal with an all-day overcast for 2 or more consecutive days. Then, I need to start up a back-up 3000-watt gasoline generator to keep the house operating and the solar batteries at full charge. This happens perhaps 3 - 4 times a winter and almost never in the summer.

A permanent magnet generator, unlike a solar system or a wind turbine, can operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and it puts out the identical amount of power day and night, rain or shine. You can use it to drive a battery bank, like solar (but day and night) or you can easily eliminate the costly, high-maintenance batteries and power your breaker panel directly. I could use a permanent magnet generator to replace my gasoline solar backup generator. I did not know about permanent magnet generators in 1999 when I laid out over $30,000 to create my solar electric system. I will soon need to replace the six giant solar batteries which will cost another fourteen thousand dollars.

Similar to an electric motor, a permanent magnet generator has moving parts, so it does need a certain, small amount of periodic maintenance due to wear and tear. A permanent magnet generator, running constantly should last at least 10 years. And, when it finally does wear out, the cost of building (or rebuilding) a replacement is very low, as has already been discussed.

A permanent magnet generator operates on the principle of attracting and repelling magnetic poles. An array of permanent magnets drives a flywheel which, in turn, spins a generator. In short, it utilizes magnets and magnetic force to produce perpetual electricity. It will keep functioning, even in extreme heat or below-freezing temperatures.

If you are thinking that all of this is too good to be true, just know that hundreds of these permanent magnet generators have already been made, around the planet, and most of them are functioning very well. What better proof could you require?
