A step up transformer may step up the voltage, but it steps down the current, so the input power is always slightly more than the output power, due to various losses. This does not make it a perpetual motion machine, like this device claims to be

They state clearly that they haven't made a perpetual motion machine, nor have they broken any laws of thermodynamics.

Energy companies will not be in favor of anything that removes their ability to sell the electricity itself. Home units will only serve to eliminate their business, so they will be greatly resisting such a thing. That is the "fly in the ointment."
Yes, they will greatly love the aspect of producing their energy for next to nothing, but it has to be done in a way that the general public will not A) become aware of the free energy generation, and B) have access to small units for the home, thereby eliminating their ongoing revenue that comes from selling electricity.
Remember, that in business, especially when their is fierce competition, survival depends on REPEAT BUSINESS, and until we invent a new kind of economy, we will never get anything that lasts a long time, or anything that provides ongoing results without ongoing expense.
