If you have a small stream or access to water flow of any kind check out this link. http://www.otherpower.com/scotthydro1.html This sites has alot of great ideas for those of us that want to cut our ties to the grid (and the world for that matter, oh sorry, just thinking out loud). The set up pictured here is all made from scratch. I have a pond with a fair amount of water coming through the over flow. Would love to capture the power of the water. This site also has some details on wind generators. Check it out, you'll be glad you did.
