‘Geovolt’ can harvest free power

TribToday.com -- AUSTINTOWN - A northeast Ohio man who invented a machine that produces free electricity by working off the natural gas drilling industry is bringing his invention to Warren today to show off how he says it could save businesses thousands of dollars in utility costs.

''We are getting a lot of interest, especially in the shale play states,'' Ohio inventor Ken Jackson said Wednesday.

Jackson was promoting his machine, the "Geovolt" as a completely green power source that can turn an average natural gas well into a personal power plant of sorts. The machine captures geo pressures emitted from natural gas wells to generate electricity.

''That pressure coming out of the earth is free. It's like a windmill inside a gas well that is blowing all the time,'' Jackson explained.

Free electricity for anyone with his own gas well and $25k to invest. That does not cover a whole lot a regular folks.

If all it takes is wind blowing out a hole, hook one up to every politician and we can all get free electricity.

This is an interesting conception. I get from this the gas being produced from the well flows thru a pipeline in which it a turbine is installed inside the line. This would probably work if the rate of flow and pressure was high. It would seem this would probably work best when the electricity generated could be use on site. There is a lot of variables it would seem to me but could probably work in ideal situations.
