    Following on from the wind turbine thread and proving that solar coupled with wind can be an alternative to EHU and generators am thinking along the lines of something like this when no wind or sun. Your comments would be appreciated.

    Have been very busy in the think tank Geo. Am looking at the idea of running guttering around the van and diverting the rainwater into a small water turbine.

    Turn the bike upside down, fit a couple of sails like a windmill and bobs your uncle, No Solar Panels, No water Turbines,

    With the weather forcast for tonight and tomorrow like it is, you could supply the National Grid for a day or two.
