don't forget solar chargers and generator backup. for when they cut your power and cell service.

I used to build sream turbines generators.. Large ones. I have never understood with natural gas and water so prevalent in areas of the country why communities haven’t built small facilities to produce power for private use. Two small units that are put in rotation for maintenance can produce power for hundreds if not thousands of homes. This is the way out of governmental control. Control the power have the power. That’s an HOA I would contribute to.

There's a Canadian company that builds generators that can be installed on top of gas wells to be used when it's cheaper to flare off the gas rather than pay to transport it in a pipeline. I can't remember their name.

Turns out there's lots of companies that build these. Here's one with a page that explains it well:

Thx for the link. I have hunting property in another state that borders national forest and they went drill crazy about 4 years ago and all that natural gas gets burned off as waste. What a damn shame.

Fire protection and maintenence of the facility. Capital costs money. The grid itself has capital costs and maintenence costs. In not an environmentalist, but for small scale amix of both has its benefits. STG's are great for large scale and more efficient that way.

Two gens of what I recommend wouldn’t take anymore space than a average two story 2000sq ft residential home. Buried transmission cables is the big cost. No aerial cable maintenance just stationary transformers. It would all pay for itself in a few years and you could be paid for the excess powered generation.maximum of 150-200 homes including solar battery backup. Don’t laugh but years ago I used a creek , made a very small spill way and used some water paddles in conjunction with auto alternators to power up a few 12 volt battries to light up a hunting hut and power a few other gadgets. Getting to old now to do bigger thing!

Very nice! I am trying to figure out how to use a stirling engine, the right refrigerant, and my hot attic space to make power during the day to power my air conditioning.

Truglow 1 point ago +1 / -0

That sounds intriguing . Ill have to look into that. Thx

sweeswee14 4 points ago +5 / -1

That's a very good idea. Did you have the water recycle in the sytem? Once the system was filled, and a regulator for temp/burners,, it wouldn't require much maintenance

10
Truglow 10 points ago +10 / -0

Yes. This is the way! Self sufficient communities are the way of the future. In the community I am in we have private roads our own lake that is overlooked by a fisheries biologist and is surrounded by thousands or acres of forest and water. It’s all within driving range of mid sized towns. This is the way future communities should be planed and the people that live in my community are the resources.

Tbonius45maximus 5 points ago +5 / -0

Wouldnt hurt to buy a few hand pump well heads and put them in the barn, you can just toss them in the well if power cuts, not hard to convert a hand pump into a windmill powered well.

7
BillionsAndBillions 7 points ago +7 / -0

You can install a manual pump in tandem with an electric, so it's already in place.

Don't care anymore what's "illegal". What is legal? Where's Hillary? Obama? Fauci? Comey? Biden? Cuomo? They are all guilty but walking free. There is no law. We are at war. Following the law gives your enemy his greatest strength.

MasterOfIllusions 3 points ago +3 / -0

Anything that is truly effective will eventually be made illegal:

  1. Tyrants make the laws.

  2. They don't want you to resist.

  3. Therefore, they will make laws to prohibit you from resisting.

  4. If you think this can be fixed with laws or voting, see point 1.

If you want to successfully oppose your tyrants then you will have to confront this problem sooner or later.

mshecubis-v2 50 points ago +50 / -0

This is the way.

Everyone needs to start planting the seeds of a velvet revolution. Parallel structures like what OP is describing is how communism was peacefully dismantled in Czechoslovakia.

Instead of overthrowing the state, you simply make it irrelevant.

Think about the Amish. There were 175,000 in the US in 2001. there are 360,000 now.

There will be 600,000 of them in 10 years.

USA needs more really independent communities like the Amish.

I am in northern VA and have been looking to move for years...just suffering from inertia. Been looking on zillow at southern western VA, North Carolina and Tennessee. Dems in Fairfax county have been ruling for decades and just increased taxes once again along with huge increases on toll road to pay for metro that is years behind schedule. This place is a disaster. Oh...and we have a Soros DA to top it off.

Would love to have a community where we looked after each other and worked together.

May I recommend SE Ohio? 90% ultra Maga. Our state is very red, but crooks in the cities keep up the pretense we're a swing state by vote manipulation. Therefore we need all the conservative people we can get, in the small towns and countryside, to offset the fraud. Appalachian Ohio has 4 enjoyable seasons, very low cost of living, trees, water, fertile soil, natural gas, oil and coal, and a self sufficient population who (except for the druggies) still go to church.

If you live in a neighborhood with an HOA, you can hop on that HOA and start this process in you neighborhood.

My neighborhood sits next to a creek and has about 200 homes with decent sized yards and plenty of land around the neighborhood.

Plenty of land that could be used for food growing

It sounds like what you are describing here is what the Jesuits will do during the Great Tribulation where those who worship a God other than the World Ruler (the Antichrist) will be persecuted. Getting an early start is always a great idea! May the Lord bless your endeavors.

Find yourselves a copy or copies of 'Failure of Civility' - worth its weight in gold.

Used copies are being sold for hundreds. Be REAL careful of what you buy online - lots of fake stuff out there. I didn't know what I was buying when a group deal came through for $25 each when it was first released. I would have bought more than 1 copy, that's for sure.
