Could you please share the plans for the one you use to power your house. That would be helpful to all of us.

I use a similar system for my house, only difference is everything is on a much larger scale and I use custom made supermagnets.
No need for batteries

That was compelling.....not sure we can call it 'perpetual' energy yet. There is always friction in the system.
Perhaps 'ZPE'?? Or, just the tip of the iceberg??
Could use the term 'potential', although technically that one's been taken in Physics...but, if you consider the magnetism that is stored in 'lodestones', then it IS a sort of potential there. Not inexhaustible, of course. But, imagine if you tapped just a minor portion of the energy produced to power an electro-magnet to skirt around the need for a 'permanent' lodestone...
I mean, in a very real sense, adding fuel to our engines is simply using stored-up energy of a different kind. AND, our car engines, for instance, have to use a portion of that stored petrol enrgy to overcome a myriad of frictions and inefficient power-transfer methods.
Any of this make sense?
