TeamKB, Its a beautiful day her in Trelawny (Jamaica) and if anybody knows anything about Trelawny on a Sunday evening is that its a lot of church music and a lot of Oldies but Goodies playing in the community and right now the place is just dead silent you can feel the silence and that is because light gone (There is no electrical Power) light has been gone since yesterday, can you believe it? I don't know JPS (Jamaica Public Service Company) treat us in the rural parts like??? Boy, I don't know (smh) We have to stand up at once! But any way! I'm going to show you my little renewable energy system there I have my wind turbine, that's a 1000 Watt wind turbine and at the back I have even some smaller ones. Each of these are 100W and with this I am able to power my entire home. I'm going to show you in a minute what are the items, the real items I get to power. Our batteries: We have 4 batteries: 1, 2, 3, 4. That's IT! I don't have numerous batteries.
This is it 1, 2, 3, 4. Four 6 volt batteries battery and then this is the power that comes down, in from the wind turbine. I have 3 phase AC Here I have my little switches for my solar panel and you're looking at the complete system There is nothing else to it! whats the purpose of generating all this energy if it was up to JPS alone all our chicken would have spoiled. in fact it was was only about one week ago we kill fowl (slaughtered Chicken for sale) and all the chicken is now in the freezer. Light gone since yesterday, since yesterday. This is unacceptable! Here the power now from the (wind) turbine is powering the refrigerator. refrigeration is the biggest expense in your house, most likely! Unless you have an AC unit or Central Air refrigeration, hot iron (clothes iron), hot water those are the most expensive unless you have a solar water heater and here we are now powering the refrigerator using the wind and solar energy that we have on the roof.
and here I have another refrigerator, this is a deep freeze. And again for anybody who rear chicken or pigs like we do, or anything of the sort. Knows the pricelessness of storing the meat fresh and keeping it frozen. Here we have nice, good frozen chicken ready to be sold and if we should have banked on JPS our chicken would have spoiled. SPOILED I tell you! SPOIL. Now TeamKB, if I should generate more energy that I use and I sell the excess to JPS JPS wants to pay me 10 cent per kWh, 10 CENT per kW of energy I sell from my solar panel! Let's say at nights I now want to buy back from JPS , JPS is proposing to charge us a whopping 40 cent per kW! 4 Times as much! So I sell them the energy and they pay me 10 cents. but when I want to buy back its 40 cent Its like a yam farmer, I am in Trelawny and I farm and I have my yam ground (farm) and from my yam farm I sell yam for $10 per pound TEN Dollars! But I buy back the same yam from the same man and wants to charge me $40 per pound! Now tell me, its time we rise up, it's time we wise up! We will be having a summer camp, where we teach kids how to make solar panels How to assemble and install a solar panel and a wind turbine along with robotics and how we can make a difference This is one Team with One Dream Renewable Energy 100% Renewables Renewable is RELIABLE Let us Keep Believing and let us stand up for a change.
