The main thing is, I want an alternative to living off of the power grid for cheaper. Don't really have to, since I live in the middle of Phoenix, I just want to save on my power bill over the long run.
Coal, good suggestion. Main thing I'm trying to do is get the wheels in my head turning cause I'm really good at coming up with crazy ideas.
I did a google search on the composition of "dirt", and its something like 55% oxygen, 35% silicon, 5% aluminum, and 5% other stuff. Its a pretty rough approximation, cause dirt can vary depending on where you get it from. I plan on getting crappy fill dirt from the alley behind my house. So this got me thinking, how can I break down dirt to get some of the good stuff out of it?
If I can get this thing working, I'll give you guys the plans for free so we can all lead lives powered by dirt
