Have you heard about Nicola Tesla device for capturing electricity from the atmosphere? Long before man made electricity the sun has been sending ionic particles to earth charging our atmosphere. With proper equipment, these static charges can be harnessed to produce electric current.
It’s amazing and the designs are now part of the Do-it-Yourself (DIY) community.
You can build one of these yourself for less than $100. Make electricity for free and store the electricity. Since this happens 24/7, you will get a lot of electricity. Add an inverter and you can drive any household, camper or lodge device with free electricity.
It turns out that that windy is good and dry air is best so if this is your situation you need to check this out.
Nikola Tesla ‘s Secret is a recommended product that will satisfy your DIY ambition and make free electricity.

Some of the wood in Leanne Smith’s timber frame, off-grid home in Sisters, Ore., has a unique story.
“That’s my uncle’s barn that blew down,” Smith says, referring to the century-old Douglas Fir in her kitchen cabinets, living room floor, foyer ceiling and fireplace mantel.
The 2,900 square foot home, chosen as “This Week’s Green House,” uses other recycled materials, such as stainless steel with a shimmery patina for a kitchen countertop.
Its greenest feature may be its 27 rooftop solar panels which provide all its power. Since the house, on 27 acres, was so far from public utilities, Smith decided to go off-grid. The 5.1 kilowatt system cost $54,00 before tax credits and about $24,000 after them.
“We’re demonstrating to people that even though we’re off grid, we don’t live in a closet,” she says, citing the home’s openness and modern amenities.
Smith, a retired Department of Energy chemist, and her husband Doug, a former DOE nuclear engineer, are now Oregon representatives for Davis Frame Co., a New Hampshire company that provided their home’s exterior.
Davis Frame began making timber frame homes in 1987 by hand in a converted dairy barn. In 1997, it moved to a bigger, mechanized facility in Claremont, N.H.
“Timber frame is an age-old craft,” says Jeff Davis, company president, fescribing the exposed natural beams and traditional wooden joinery.
Davis says his homes are not only beautiful but also energy efficient, because he combines timber frames with structural insulated panels or SIPS. Together they provide an envelope that’s at least twice as efficient as most homes. The walls have an insulating value of R26 and the roof, R40.
Smith says her home has additional layers, including air space, that provide more insulation. Its exterior arrived in panels on a flat-bed truck.
“It went up very fast,” she recalls. The interior finish work took another four months and the house was completed on Halloween Day in 2008.
Davis’ timber frame homes don’t come cheap. He says they’re mostly custom and their exteriors, which he sells throughout the United States via kits, cost $60 to $70 per square foot. Once the homes are completely finished, they typically cost between $200 to $250 per square foot, not including site and land costs.
Smith estimates her home cost $640,000, including the solar array and the road they built, but she says its zero energy bills and its lovely finishes are worth every penny.
“You should see the Travertine floors against the Douglas Fir. You need heart medicine,” she gushes.
Her house also has in-floor solar heating, a cistern, low-flow plumbing fixtures, Energy Star appliances, efficient LED/CFL lighting and high-performance Eagle windows by Anderson.
It has no air conditioning. “We don’t need it,” she says, adding that its SIPS panel keep the heat out in the summer.
To sell others on their version of the American dream, she and her husband are holding a workshop at their home on June 19th.
Their home won the top or platinum certification from the Earth Advantage, a Portland-based nonprofit group that rates homes for eco-friendliness.
Smith says they lived in Colorado for many years but never plan to move again. “This is where we were born,” she says. “This is home.”

Review this very strong video on solar energy from Earth4Energy: Solar Video
The Perendev, originally coined from the phrase “perpetual energy device,” but later changed to the more politically correct, “permanent energy device”.
A magnetic motor (or magnet motor) is a device which converts power of or relating to or caused by magnetism (e.g., “magnetic forces”) into mechanical force and motion, with no other input. It usually provides rotary mechanical motion. The machines that utilizes the properties of a magnet for mechanical energy.
Running Magnet Motors Witnessed

Myself (left) with Mike Brady, assembling his Perendev magnet motor.
I happen to have been involved in that motor. I helped assemble it in Johannesburg in December of 2002 when it came from the machine shop, but we couldn’t get it to run during the week that we were there. The video was produced a couple of months later by the inventor, Mike Brady; and I was given permission to publish it in Aug. 2004 prior to a German television debut that was supposed to take place but which never materialized. (Ref.)
We had our mechanical engineer associate, Douglas K. Furr build a 1/4-scale replica of the Perendev design, with Brady’s permission, but were not able to get it running. For some reason, often when people see a video that has been posted of that motor, they think it is a functioning device, even though the video shows me spinning and stopping the shaft with my hand, and I state that we’ve not been able to get it to run on its own. I guess their thinking it is a functioning magnet motor is due to a wishful thinking syndrome or something.
In all this time, I’ve heard of a lot of claims to working magnet motors, some of which seem credible, but I’ve never personally witnessed one running.
I’ve also surrounded myself with a lot of experienced people in the field who are open minded but who require proof. I founded the New Energy Congress a couple of years ago in order to review the various exotic clean energy technology claims and then rank them according to a set of the criteria including renewable, affordable, credible, and safe. We compile these in a Top 100 Clean Energy Technologies listing.
Then a couple of weeks ago, when I was consulting John Dunlap, an entrepreneur who wanted to advance magnet motor technology, I was embarrassed when I couldn’t answer whether or not any of the approximate forty NEC members had personally witnessed a magnet motor running. I could answer for myself, but I couldn’t answer for them.
So on Sept. 19, I wrote to the NEC: “Have any of you members of the NEC seen a magnet motor in operation in person? “By ‘magnet motor’ I’m referring to motors that run only on magnets, with no other motive force. A separate question would be whether you were able to confirm that the magnets were not diminishing in gauss in the process of providing rotational power, but my present primary question is more broad, relating to a magnet-only-powered motor.
“It seems like maybe one or two of you have witness one in person, but I can’t recall who or what. I’ve heard of some 20 – 25 different claims to working magnet motors that seemed possibly credible, but have never seen one in person.”My second question would be, if you have seen one in operation, would you be willing to go on record as having done so?”Since it is possible that if you have seen one, you are under NDA not to disclose that, I’ve created an anonymous poll”
The wording of the poll was simple:
- “Have you seen a magnet motor in operation in person? ‘Magnet motor’ = a motor that run only on magnets, with no other motive force.”
Two members of the congress came forward in the private NEC forum to discuss their experiences.
One said that he had not yet confirmed that the magnets were not diminishing over time, and that he was under NDA from giving any details, but that he was very encouraged by what he had seen. Formerly, he was among the skeptics who did not think that such a motor could be built.
The 20% affirmative response by the NEC members is not representative of the public at large, inasmuch as the NEC is composed of people who pursue exotic energy technology.
A follow-up poll has been prepared for the general public (posted above). I’ve also created a poll (Sept. 29 – Oct. 12) for the fe_updates newsletter group who received my email notices of the daily FreeEnergyNews.com news items. That group is more likely to have results resembling those of the NEC, than of the public in general. Also, the general poll above is not going to be a true reflection of the general populace inasmuch as people who come to this news page in the first place are likely to be an unusual set to begin with.
I also plan to follow this NEC poll up with additional polls of the NEC about some of the other exotic technologies we cover, such as electromagnetic overunity, electrolysis overunity, gravity wheels, and cold fusion.
Though such such polls are not the same as a scientifically sound validation using calibrated measurement tools, video documentation, and other data collection, it does help increase the hope factor for these technologies that science rebuffs — as they did human flight, among other things they said were “impossible.”

Copyright © 2009 On Monday, Jan. 19, 2009, I interviewed Tom Valone, Ph.D., who works at the U.S. Patent office and is the author of several books on Zero Point Energy – a source of energy that is everywhere present and constant in the universe. General Physics tends to think that this is an inaccessible energy source, but that’s usually when we get most interested – when science as we know it says something is “impossible”. Tom gave us us an overview of the general concept of Zero Point Energy and described some recent developments toward building working prototypes using nanotechnology. Valone is one of the most, if not the most knowledgeable person on this subject on the planet. And he is quite articulate in explaining it in a way that both scientists and lay persons can understand.The promise of zero point energy comes from an effect that is found both on a subatomic level as well as a macro level, in which two bodies tend to be attracted to one another as they come into very close proximity to one another. Valone points out that this effect can be seen with boats. As they come close, they want to be drawn to one another.On the near molecular level, this is manifest in what is called the “Casimir Effect“. The exciting thing is that with the maturation of the field of nanotechnology (manipulating substances in the size range of a billionth of a meter), we now have tools by which this effect can be harnessed.Valone describes one possible prototype involving nano-particles using a spring-like action to vibrate back and forth. Imagine a gazillion of these nanoparticles acting together. I didn’t quite catch how this could be accomplished or harnessed. The second prototype proposal was easier to grasp, as it is presently used on a larger scale. (“Larger”, in this case, refers to things we can actually perceive with our eyes, such as a diode in a circuit board.) He envisions nanodiodes being aligned, and the zero point energy forces — free from the universe — acting on them via the Casimir Effect. This would result in one-way movement of electrons — similar to what happens in a photovoltaic cell as photons — free from the sun — act as the stimulant. Valone envisions that a solid state (no moving parts) device one meter square, thus composed, could power a house — continuously, with no fluctuation, no maintenance, no pollution, no fuel requirement (fuel comes freely from the zero point field). Valone also talked about conjecture that spacecraft could be propelled by this force as well, using a fuel that is everywhere present, including in the deepest reaches of space. The nanodiode technology is already here. It’s just a matter of configuring it properly, he said. And how long before we might see something like this in the marketplace? “Five to ten years.”Valone also conjectures that Zero Point Energy could be the contributing energy source in all-magnet motors — another technology modern physics generally says is “impossible.”
