This is my FREE OFF THE GRID PROJECTS Blog and will instruct

you on how-to complete your own OFF THE GRID PROJECTS FREE.

Build everything you need to have free energy, no utility
bills and lower fuel prices.

In the days to follow I will be posting step-by-step procedures from over 40 OFF-GRID Guides I’ve written / compiled, that’s over 1000 different documents of Easy to Read ALTERNATIVE ENERGY plans, ranging from
3-step Beginners Blueprints to 70-page Builder Books (processes made simple). So that EVERYONE, ANYONE, EVERYWHERE can enjoy the benefits of Cheaper, Healthier & Cleaner World for absolutely FREE. (The resources, tips & tricks I provide were tested myself over the last 8 years here in Texas.)


I will also be including links to purchase parts & supplies
for up to 90% off or FREE, FREE unlimited online consultation & helpful hints to
get you harnessing the FREE ENERGY from the sun, earth, wind & water in as
little as 1 day.


Project lengths range typically from 1
day to 1 month. Costs per project average from $5-$400 in parts. Compare that to
similar store bought units costing thousands, not to mention the savings from no
more utility bills. Your guides will pay for themselves thousands of times over.

Typical tools, hardware and supplies are used, making
access to parts available for all.
Can you even
imagine no more utility bills? No more Gas costs?

That’s it, it’s that simple. You will love the info in these tutorials, that’s a
guarantee. Don’t forget to check the “Achieves” on the right side of this page

How to DIY Alternative (Green / Renewable) Energy Guides

Let me start off by saying we (my family and I) live
completely, 100% “off of the grid and are completely self sufficient”

The house is built utilizing natures natural elements, in the
shape of an octagon with 8ft wide arch doors on every wall to catch every angle
of wind (typical 4 sided homes have half the chance as one with 8 sides. A
circle being the most efficient design). Woodburning stoves, solar chimney,
solar AC, solar heating, solar water heating (pool and home), solar stove, solar
power, wind power, hydrogen powered back up generator, hydrogen back up water
heater, hydrogen stove, 2 hydrogen powered trucks, 1 EV (electric vehicle) and
satellite internet.

There are no utility lines, no water lines, no roads, tv, cell
service, etc. on our ranch. EVERYTHING needed is produced here. All electricity
comes from 27 solar panels, 2 main wind gens and a back hydrogen generator if
needed (typically we can last 9 days with all luxuries of sunless windless
weather, hasn’t happened yet). Water is caught and storied from the rain. Hot
water is made with solar batch water heaters with an on-demand hydrogen hot
water heater as backup. Even our vehicles use alternative energy (2 hydrogen
trucks, 1 EV electric vehicle converted). Because of this we have no bills, no
debt and no mortgage.

Here’s a DIY step by step process to build a small solar panel
that really works, taken from a guide I offer at it’s complete
but if you’d like the more specific process or the pics and images go to It’s pretty simple but if you have any problems feel free to
contact me directly I can walk you threw the process.

Materials you will need

A sheet of copper flashing from the hardware store. This normally costs about
$5.00 per square foot. We will need about half a square foot.

Two alligator clip leads.

A sensitive micro-ammeter that can read currents between 10 and 50 microamperes.
Radio Shack sells small LCD multimeters that will do, but I used a small surplus
meter with a needle.

An electric stove. My kitchen stove is gas, so I bought a small one-burner
electric hotplate for about $25. The little 700 watt burners probably won’t work
— mine is 1100 watts, so the burner gets red hot.

A large clear plastic bottle off of which you can cut the top. I used a 2 liter
spring water bottle. A large mouth glass jar will also work.

Table salt. We will want a couple tablespoons of salt.

Tap water.

Sand paper or a wire brush on an electric drill.

Sheet metal shears for cutting the copper sheet.

The first step is to cut a piece of the copper sheeting that
is about the size of the burner on the stove. Wash your hands so they don’t have
any grease or oil on them. Then wash the copper sheet with soap or cleanser to
get any oil or grease off of it. Use the sandpaper or wire brush to thoroughly
clean the copper sheeting, so that any sulfide or other light corrosion is

Next, place the cleaned and dried copper sheet on the burner and turn the burner
to its highest setting.

As the copper starts to heat up, you will see beautiful oxidation patterns begin
to form. Oranges, purples, and reds will cover the copper.

As the copper gets hotter, the colors are replaced with a black coating of
cupric oxide. This is not the oxide we want, but it will flake off later,
showing the reds, oranges, pinks, and purples of the cuprous oxide layer

The last bits of color disappear as the burner starts to glow red.

When the burner is glowing red-hot, the sheet of copper will be coated with a
black cupric oxide coat. Let it cook for a half an hour, so the black coating
will be thick. This is important, since a thick coating will flake off nicely,
while a thin coat will stay stuck to the copper.

After the half hour of cooking, turn off the burner. Leave the hot copper on the
burner to cool slowly. If you cool it too quickly, the black oxide will stay
stuck to the copper.

As the copper cools, it shrinks. The black cupric oxide also shrinks. But they
shrink at different rates, which makes the black cupric oxide flake off.

The little black flakes pop off the copper with enough force to make them fly a
few inches. This means a little more cleaning effort around the stove, but it is
fun to watch.

When the copper has cooled to room temperature (this takes about 20 minutes),
most of the black oxide will be gone. A light scrubbing with your hands under
running water will remove most of the small bits. Resist the temptation to
remove all of the black spots by hard scrubbing or by flexing the soft copper.
This might damage the delicate red cuprous oxide layer we need to make to solar
cell work.

Cut another sheet of copper about the same size as the first one. Bend both
pieces gently, so they will fit into the plastic bottle or jar without touching
one another. The cuprous oxide coating that was facing up on the burner is
usually the best side to face outwards in the jar, because it has the smoothest,
cleanest surface.

Attach the two alligator clip leads, one to the new copper plate, and one to the
cuprous oxide coated plate. Connect the lead from the clean copper plate to the
positive terminal of the meter. Connect the lead from the cuprous oxide plate to
the negative terminal of the meter.

Now mix a couple tablespoons of salt into some hot tap water. Stir the saltwater
until all the salt is dissolved. Then carefully pour the saltwater into the jar,
being careful not to get the clip leads wet. The saltwater should not completely
cover the plates — you should leave about an inch of plate above the water, so
you can move the solar cell around without getting the clip leads wet.

Now place in the sun with the magnified glass on top.

The solar cell is a battery, even in the dark, and will usually show a few
microamps of current.

That’s it it’s that simple. If you’d a more detailed process and some pics
(couldn’t put them here) it’s available along with some other DIY alternative
energy projects at

The steps above are complete, but if you have ANY questions or
would like a more detailed copy with pics, feel free to contact me.

Hope this helped, feel free to contact
me personally if you have any questions if you’d like assistance in making your
first self sufficient steps, I’m willing to walk you step by step threw the
process. I’ve written several how-to DIY guides available at
on the subject. I also offer online and on-site
workshops, seminars and internships to help others help the environment.
