I plan to buy land in a group of four or more situated apon a downhill mountain stream of
sufficient flow, reliability of permanence and dammability where I persue to set up a series of
dams that have a two cup tall, river wide gap at the bottom to allow the fish, mussels etc to flow
underneath a mesh protected spout. The spout directs most of the rivers flow into a small channel
coming over onto the top of a waterwheel connected to a permanent magnet alternator which generates
electricity to charge a clump of deep cycle marine batteries for periodic replacement. Further
upstream, large debris could be diverted down a different rout somehow, including any river life?
If done intelligently, carefully choosing the land, one can secure permanent free electricity at a
high rate and a low cost in comparison to solar if one utilises this concept of damming the stream
multiple times, utilising multiple wheels, along its length, with a big narrow at the bottom for
the fish, and a mesh protection for the dams spout leading to a water wheel charging a set of deep
cycle marine batteries! On top of this working permanant establishment of sufficient free electricity, one
as a team persues to establish very carefully and beautifully, a working permaculture food forest!
This food forest is established by the team, has a large diversity of fruit and nut plants along
with herbs, tobacco, tea, various hard wood trees, healing remedy plants, diverse organic foods of
all kinds at a cost of low maintenance once established, plants that need more frequent attention,
are placed closer to the house. Some of this is traded for other things, hopefully being able to
give generously. Permaculture is forest archetecture, food forest gardening. It creates a diverse
forest of food that matures very well over long time. etc etc, do some research if you have never
heard of the term ‘permaculture’! So, what do you guys think? And how likely do you think it is to
find land like this at a size of around two acres? ‘I just know thisl work though! And overcoming
any obsticles to climbing this mountain will be so worth it! No rent, free electricity, a food forest of beauty, a life time of freedom for those after you and those after them! Some advice, any? I have worked out, the rough cost to achieve this is: 40k each, four people putting 40k each in.
