Ahoy, I’m Capt Rob Lee and welcome to Pirate Lifestyle TV! Arrr
Today’s episode, too much important information for a quickie, is about you generating your own electricity.
I have always been interested in what most people like to call, “alternative living and alternative power.” Aye, we be livin’ on a frickin’ sailboat and we lived for 11 continuous months completely self-sufficient with our Off-Grid electrical system.
In an earlier video we discussed the basics of, why and how you go Off-Grid. I’ll make it a video response so you can watch it later.
This video will be more hands on.
In today’s crazy unpredictable world generating your own Renewable electricity for your sailboat, motorhome, remote camp, and even your current home will make you independent of big power companies. No more worrying about price increases and power outages.
OK, let’s get to it.
A “Hybrid” system is a combination of solar, wind, and generator. The sun shines and the wind blows at different times of the day and year. Many times your needs might be greater than the solar and wind can produce. Systems that use several types of power generation have the advantages of each one.
Solar panels convert sunlight directly to electricity any time the sun is shining. The amount of electricity generated depends on how much of the sun’s energy hits it. They produce electricity without noise or air pollution from a clean, renewable resource, the sun. Solar panels never run out of fuel.
Wind turbines convert the energy in wind into clean electricity. The wind spins the turbine’s blades which spins a generator producing the electricity. The amount of electricity generated depends on how hard the wind blows. Like solar, they produce electricity from a clean, renewable resource, and never run out of fuel.
Good deep cycle batteries are very important because they store the electricity your hybrid system generates for use at a later time. They are designed to provide a lower amount of power over a longer amount of time. We currently have a house bank of three group 29 batteries.
An inverter is needed to run standard household appliances. They convert DC battery current into 120 volt AC house current.
I strongly suggest you get a battery monitor. It is too easy to ignore your batteries and they are expensive to replace. With a specially designed battery monitor you can maintain your batteries and optimize their performance. These monitors include many features that can be displayed at the press of a button. Variables like voltage, amp usage, total amp hour’s, time to recharge, and more.
A small electric generator makes a great part-time source of electricity. There may be times when you need a larger amount of electricity than your hybrid system can supply. A generator makes up the difference when electrical demand exceeds the combined output of the solar panels, wind turbine, and the batteries. They of course convert some type of non-renewable fuel into electricity.
Whatever your reason, with a little planning you can design and build an off grid electrical system. Yes, you can build a reliable pollution free system that will generate clean electricity for many years.
Remember that any idea whose time has come, was once an idea ahead of its time.
I hope you enjoyed this pirate lifestyle TV episode. Keep the great ideas coming, and please, share these videos with your friends.
Aye, livin’ the pirate lifestyle be about bein’ happy and self-sufficient.
With ye help, me goal be ta motivate and stimulate YE friends ta be livin’ the pirate lifestyle!

Geothermal energy is often the “forgotten renewable energy.” While some parts of the world and regions are able to access large-scale geothermal power production, the use of distributed geothermal energy to regulate temperatures and limit the costs of heating and air-conditioning use could promote huge efficiencies in geothermal energy use across the entire US. Add to that a touch of Solar energy and what you have is a highly efficient green energy home with absolutely NO green-house gases. Solar energy and geothermal power are both renewable Energy sources to be immdeiately tapped
Investors and players in the renewable energy business often focus on the flashiest technologies, ranging from highly visible solar and wind in the generation sector to next-generation smart meters monitoring usage on the customer level.
But not many realize if you combine the under dog Geothermal energy with Flashy Solar energy you get the ultimate cost effective solution with costs for the geothermal power and solar energy being about 35% lees than using just solar!
The name of the game is build houses facing solar south for solar energy and install geothermal energy from the get-go and you instantly have a net-zero energy home.
All Renewable, all free once the initial investment is paid and will produce for 50 plus years

For icanhascheezburger.com, “Kitteh Energy of Tomorrow” is a short excerpt from “An Engineer’s Guide to Cat Flatulence.” Two professional engineers demonstrate a form of Renewable energy called Cat Methane Containment Trousers. Also includes creative uses of the technology.
None of the Cats, Engineers, or Flatulence Technicians were harmed in the making of this video. They did feel a bit bloated, but then they felt better.
Please share with family and friends!!

Modern landfills are required to install gas collection systems to capture and destroy the methane gasses that are naturally produced within a landfill. These gases are burned in a flare. Rather than eliminating landfill gas by simply burning it off, Caterpillar can help you turn it into a Renewable fuel by providing gas-fueled engine-generators that can produce electric power from landfill gas.
