Free Power For 16 Years From A Modified Washing Machine / Water Wheel...

Backyard Solar Power Revolution...

I’ve been living off grid for the past 16 years, I make my own electricity using an old washing machine I found at the dump.

I rewired the smart-drive washing machine motor to generate electricity, the generator is rotated via a water driven Pelton Wheel ( Hydro Turbine ).

Water goes into the intake, creates pressure due to the difference in height between intake and outlet nozzle. Water comes out of the nozzle at 60psi and spins the pelton wheel which is attached to the modified washing machine motor (now a generator).

The generator puts out 3 phase ac voltage which is passed through a 3 phase diode block rectifier to change it into dc, it is then fed directly into a 24v battery bank, a 24 – 240vac inverter is connected to the battery bank, 240vac travels up the power lines to my house. I can now power all my 240vac household appliances from the inverter

It makes enough power to heat my water and run all the appliances in my energy efficient house as well as most of the tools in my shed. Occasionally I have issues with it and need to go down to the stream to problem solve, a small price to pay to avoid paying a power bill. Check it out below…
