It can be done and corporations can still profit. A wireless receiver that collects usage data can be ised to generate bills. The B.C lower mainland has already switched thier power meters to wireless. Some have refused but it will be eventually ALL homes metered wireless.

The profit model is very realistic. All that is left is public safety and money. I doubt Russia will go ahead if it is too dangerous so I look forward to whatever they may come up with.

Good form Russia. Good for you.

This just seems dumb on so many levels. Tesla came up with some great inventions but just like all inventors he also had lots of failures.

Lets see this working on a smaller scale before trying to do the whole world.




I completely agree. Some people think he's some sort of mystical wizard. His transmission tower simply WONT work.

If this machine works as tesla thought it could work, electric cars could become the norm, with no need for on board batteries. All that would matter would be that the vehicles receiver were in range of a tower.

Could you imagine a world where your mobility, and energy needs required no cables, batteries, or combustibles?

I find it interesting that many feel like some of Tesla's ideas were impossible, particularly the free power ideas because you can't get something for nothing, when in reality, while our energy needs are substantial compared to our small selves, in the scope of star systems, we are like a mild luminescence seen from Algae.

I was watching an awesome lightning storm off the beach 2nights ago and was sitting there thinking "just imagine if we could capture that energy in capacitors and batteries and regulate the discharge instead of the instant transformation of static into light and heat.

It would be a neat science experiment. If it works, then we would have to look back on our history books. But a lot of energy just flowing through our space can create health problems. As an example, people living right under or near high voltage lines suffered from cancer and or had children with birth defects.
Be careful what you wish for.

Exactly what "free power" are you talking about with regard to Telsa?

“Ere many generations pass, our machinery will be driven by power obtainable at any point in the universe. It is a mere question of time when men will succeed in attaching their machinery to the very wheelwork of nature.” ~ Nikola Tesla


Tesla believed that electricity was easily obtainable anywhere simply by pulling it out of thin air (or even in the absense of air in space), harnessing the same phenomena that builds static in the clouds. Everything in the universe is electric by nature, so it makes sense. Hell, our particular planet is essentially a massive magnet, spinning on an axis and orbiting a star that bombards it with electromagnetic waves. It's like one enormous generator!
He had an astounding clarity of vision regarding electricity and how it propagated through the universe, even though he actually didn't believe electrons existed! He staked his own life on his theories many times during experiments and lived to be an old man.

Power can be transmitted wirelessly. The reason it's not done now is because it's inefficient.

Why would anyone want to abandon an efficient power distribution system for one that's inefficient?

There are some isolated applications like remote construction sites that don't have access to power lines, but that's about it.

Regardless of what he may or may not have believed he KNEW

The transmitter itself was to have been powered by a 200 kilowatt Westinghouse alternating current industrial generator.

Is that not correct?

I too hope they can get it to work. Telsa truly was a Genius, way, way ahead of his time.

We owe much to him....

Slightly off-topic, but an interesting system used in Australia for many years is the SWER system. Single Wire Earth Return. It functions by running a single HV conductor to a transformer many miles away and uses the earth as neutral. It's used to save time and money running power to remote properties. I know it's not the same, but it just goes to show what a good conductor the earth is.

That's cute but is it meaningful?

Are you implying this project in the OP will transmit power not generated traditional means?

I'm all for this...

There are no laws to say people cannot open there mouths and drink the rain, nobody owns that nor ever could, and if they tried just DIE

But surely we're going to have to pay a fee towards the tower owners as they're capturing this energy... FREE unlimited energy, that I can love with... OR possible a company will sell individual household receivers, either way thing is great news

Bye bye nuclear coal and gas power and then bye bye oil, let's hook this baby up with the tesla car wirelessly

you seem confused, what has this project have to do with free energy? Why do you think "free energy" is involved?

Why do you think the tower will be powered by free energy? Even Tesla used a generator....

Yeah, by selling us the appliances to harness it....

Theres no such thing as free in this world...

They'd figure out a way to charge people for the energy somehow



don't be so frigging pessimistic... dayum.

Peru to Provide Free Solar Power to its 2 Million Poorest Citizens


The country of Peru is looking to provide free electricity to over 2 million of its poorest citizens by harvesting energy from the sun. Energy and Mining Minister Jorge Merino said that the National Photovoltaic Household Electrification Program will provide electricity to poor households through the installation of photovoltaic panels.

Some of you do not seem to understand the concept. Obviously I'm not a leading scientist and therefore don't know specifically how it could actually be done, but nonetheless there is a basic concept to it that forms the whole context that some don't seem to be understanding. The idea is that there is naturally massive amounts of energy pulsing from the earth to the atmosphere and back. The idea is to somehow utilize this energy that is naturally occurring, already existing in the atmosphere, harness it, and transmit it wirelessly. In this means our energy and electric needs could theoretically be transmitted everywhere, and anyone would be able to utilize it. This is why it relates to the idea of 'free energy' and the like. Obviously this is not something energy companies would want. I'm sure they could devise ways to profit, but it is sad that the system of our world is literally structured to never allow people to have free easy access to things, whether there is a way to do it or not.

What makes you think this project is about that?

Have you even bothered to read how they are going to power it?
