Default Dead Batteries

If Only! My idea to save energy in my home is to pedal a bike, attached is a dynamo 12v, to that is an inverter, and to that is the radio and one light bulb. the kids think i am mad but i have everything except the dynamo. I am going to do it too, my ESB bill this month was 340euro, not funny!

reviving dead car batteries is relativly easy. They don't make great electric vehicle batteries though but if they're free.....

EI1429 i have what you need and some experience with alternative energy so drop me a pm if you want advice.

Default Alt Energy

Yea Jack, no problem would be worth the look, My wife thinks i am mad!

UPDATE: Right i got the solar panel, the battery has been on charge all day (just the one battery for now, the other one is on standby) Tonight i am going to see how long i can go in batt power using inverter. Connected will be the tv and sky box. LIGHT ERR UP!

Default Two

1. How is battery/electical power green or eco friendly when power plants have to burn coal and oil to produce the energy stored in a battery ?

2. Good idea on the cycling front. I'd love to have a stand that allows me to transform my road bike into a stationary bike.

Well the idea is to cut out the Power Plant and just use human power or solar power, My plans have been put on hold for the moment but i plan on starting them up again some time this year.
Hope this answers your question?
