I did some simple computations on the 300KW model. Over their 5 year life guaranteed for the unit the cost per kilowatt hour (KWH) is less than 1 cent. Californians pay 15 cents per KWH for their power. How is that not good for the consumer?

Lightglobes work in both the UK and the US, theRiverGoddess, so I don't really think it would be much of an issue slighly modifying a machine you pay $50, 000 for.
So many of these free energy machines turn out to be fake. I can't help but think that this is a hoax.

Free energy in a closed system is impossible.
If someone shows me “free” energy, they’d better be able to figure out where it’s coming from. “Nowhere” is wrong.
First Law of Thermodynamics: Energy can be changed from one form to another, but it cannot be created or destroyed. The total amount of energy and matter in the Universe remains constant, merely changing from one form to another. The First Law of Thermodynamics (Conservation) states that energy is always conserved, it cannot be created or destroyed. In essence, energy can be converted from one form into another. Click here for another page (developed by Dr. John Pratte, Clayton State Univ., GA) covering thermodynamics.
The Second Law of Thermodynamics states that "in all energy exchanges, if no energy enters or leaves the system, the potential energy of the state will always be less than that of the initial state." This is also commonly referred to as entropy. A watchspring-driven watch will run until the potential energy in the spring is converted, and not again until energy is reapplied to the spring to rewind it.
The energy comes from the "vacuum" or fabric of space basically. It has been proven to exist in mainstream physics by Lee, Yang, Wu etc and Nobel prizes have been given out.

The problem with this is that magnets that are used to power something lose their magnetism, whether it happens slowly or quickly depends on the strength of the magnet and the amount of work being done by it. I don't care how you "focus and shield" a magnetic field, if it's doing work the magnet that's creating the field is gradually becoming demagnetized. Period.
