“Pendulum Power” why not?…generates eco-electricity too! Green Genius

Power generating Pendulum

Power generating Pendulum.

The pendulum…it’s not just your piano teacher’s torture tool any more…For years we have used waterfalls (dams) to generate electricity using the gravity moving the water, but what if you don’t have a waterfall or river nearby…no electricity…no solar panels…no windmills…all you have is gravity.  Well Gravitational Energy Corp. (GEC) in Ohio has a solution…power generating pendulums … power from gravity!

One of GEC’S applications…a gravity water pump teamed with a water purification system..supplied water for earthquake victims in Haiti where it easily produced drinking water for around 4,000 people with only three hours of operation a day. They are currently working with Hanish Water to sell turnkey hand-operated water treatment systems.

Water Purificaton using gravity pendulum & An optional water filtration system, manufactured by Hanish Water, is available for producing safe-drinking water that meets or exceeds World Health Organization standards.

Water Purification using gravity pendulum & an optional water filtration system, manufactured by Hanish Water, is available for producing safe-drinking water that meets or exceeds World Health Organization standards.

From their website: The pendulum on the GP210 weighs just 40 lbs. and is 48 inches long. It is a hand-powered machine that allows its operators to pump up to 1,000 gallons of water per hour.

In non-technical terms what GEC has done is develop a pendulum technology that reduces the friction of the pendulum pivot point to nearly zero.  Thus harnessing gravity to do most of the “work” and requiring very little energy to maintain the pendulum’s energy to swing.

As potable (drinkable) water is a major factor in developing countries…there are many places in this world where clean drinking water is a LUXURY…this gravity powered system can be a major aid for world-wide sourcing of ground water or water purification.

Two facts = 1 sad statistic: 1/The UN suggests that each person needs 20-50 litres of safe freshwater a day to ensure their basic needs for drinking, cooking and cleaning.
Source: World Water Assessment Programme (WWAP)   2/ More than one in six people worldwide – 894 million people – don’t have access to this amount of safe freshwater.
Source: World Health Organization (WHO) and United Nations Children Fund (UNICEF) Joint Monitoring Programme on Water Supply and Sanitation (JMP)  That’s almost 3 times the population of the USA.

GEC’s web site has tech data and a White Paper attached for anyone  wanting specifics on what can be done with the high efficiency pendulums.

Casualmere® eco-clothing of Bamboo likes this “No”- Or “Very Low”- Carbon imprint technology a lot!

New applicatons are being developed as we speak.  The GEC site VIP page contains several interesting links to other partner companies working on various other aspects of sustainable technologies.

There are several videos on various pages on their web site that can easily educate those interested …everyone could benefit from being interested and informed.

    With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement?

    My site has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any methods to help prevent content from being ripped off? I’d truly appreciate

    • Plagiarism is a tough problem. Without threatening a lawsuit for each event and following up, you could contact offenders as ask them to credit you with a link when the use your material. “Sugar attracts more flies than vinegar” Grandma’s axiom. Plus a link back to you serves you well in SEO.
