Here, this will help you out greatly. Find a plot of land with a deep stream or a small river running thru the land.
Get yourself these items: One large generator that will power enough electricity to a home, one home made gear box that is made last.,cement,4
beirings,2- 4 by 4's length is determined by water wheel diameter and bank hieght. Also the 4 by 4's have two holes you cut at one end where the
beirings get pounded into with rubber hammer,grease,metal gears you can weld on,One large metal pole,2 plastic bags with no holes, 3 metal rings, one
gets welded to metal pole in center for a stop, and build a large water wheel with a hole in the center and the center has to be metal so that you can
weld it to the metal rod once it is in place. When making the water wheel of metal make sure you attach the fins last, so you can adjust it to the
Dig two holes 4 to 5 feet down 6 to 8 inch diameter next to bank, don't worry about the water in the holes you dig. When done, Put a water tight
plastic bag in the hole and put the 4 by 4 in the hole. Attach string to 4 by 4 and tether it so that it sticks straight up with level. Pour cement
and let dry, now repeat other side of stream/river. don't forget to measure difference between the water line and bank height so you know what
distance to put the poles in the ground.
one 4 by 4 on each side with a hole on top where two beirings go, 4 total, two to each 4 by 4. Put the beirings in hole tight and pound in with a
rubber hammer. Fill with grease to both poles. Get a metal tube or rod that extends to the other side of the water, and also weld a metal ring stopper
in the center. Make sure the large water wheel will be able to touch the water at low river levels and high when paddles are connected. You will need
3 people to put the water wheel on. One man on one side of the stream,river and another on the other. Both men lift the pole, and the 3rd man puts on
the water wheel. You let it slide down the pole till it hits the ring stopper in the center. Both people can then put another ring stopper on and
thread the pole in the holes. Once the pole is threaded on both sides then a person can weld the ring stopper to the metal pole next to 4 by 4 on both
sides. When cooled down grease the ring stopper on the side next to the wood pole that is cemented in the ground. so that the wheel will not slide all
over in the water. Next get yourself a boat and two ropes so you can go out in the water to weld the water wheel to the metal pole. Once the water
wheel is secured then go to the side of the river where the generator will be located. Next weld a metal gear to the end of the metal pole. Next,
Construct a concrete flat square where the generator is supposed to sit. Next figure out how to construct gear box so that the generator is spinning
fast enough to push out enough energy. Next build a small water tight shelter over the generator and gears. Next run an underground pcv pipe and
waterproof cord 2 to 3 feet deep from the generator to the home fuse box.
Build yourself a nice home with all the essentials like a wood stove that you can cook over. Get an electric water heater,stove, dryer,washer and
electric small heaters and energy efficient light bulbs. Get everything you want that is powered by electricity and always have a backup generator so
that you can replace the other one in case something goes wrong.
I wonder if this is legal in some states. Once you build the generator
that can push out the required electricity for the unit or units.
