I have thought about pop out wind generators for electric cars. They would pop out when the car is going fast enough to generate power, then pop back
in when you slow down or just a manual switch to pop them in and out. I figure there would be power generation for longer trips without stopping to
If the coating on the outside of the car could also generate power to recharge the batteries, it possibly could drive without a grid. It sounds like
this technique is fairly efficient.
If you take one household using $6,000.00 a year for 50 years of power, that comes to $300,000.00 a family will use, give or take a few dollars. A
city of 100,000 households using an average of $1,500.00 a year will generate 15 million dollars of revenue for an electric company for that year.
That is if energy costs don't spike up during the summer or winter depending on where you live. A wind generator, batteries and a house coated with
this would likely cost less than $50,000 and even incorporated into the original building would not likely cost much more to put a new energy
efficient home on the market, with the technology we have today.
There is no will by government to make builders do it, even though there is a market for the product It becomes easier for a home buyer to go with the
flow by buying what is available when they want to buy something.
With all the things produced in China these days and the fact that China can produce anything they set their sights on, to any quality the person
paying the bill wants, I can't see this and other things not becoming common. The main restriction now is the desire of the fake manufacturing
companies to make huge profits by subbing their manufacturing out to China while still increasing market prices. The auto industry is a great example
of this. They just bolt the sub structures together here. All the real manufacturing is done in China at 10 cents on the dollar. That is why the auto
manufacturers are back in the black so quickly. Most private companies would have expired or taken a lifetime to crawl back from something like the
auto industry suffered. They were just wasting money at too fast a pace, which is why they needed bailouts when the market went askew.
All we need is for people to start putting 2 and 2 together, and finding the answer to be 4 rather than 20.
