WHAT THE GULF STREAM TURBINE SYSTEM CAN DO
What would you say if I told you about an invention for producing a steady supply of electricity that would consume no fuel, produce no carbon dioxide or other harmful emissions, would be both silent and invisible, would cause no harm to marine animals, would make it possible to produce “free” hydrogen at distant locations, would be virtually impervious to earthquakes and tsunamis, would be immune from terrorist attacks, would require almost no maintenance, could be submerged and raised to the surface by a remote means, would be unaffected by marine fauna and flora, would require no site preparation or leasing of sites, would require capital investments per kilowatt of generating capacity no greater than those required for wind farms and modern coal-fired plants, would – if properly placed – operate at capacity factors comparable to many fossil fuel plants and three-times higher than those of most wind turbines – all while producing its steady power with virtually no operating costs?
Most of the sources of renewable
energy are inherently intermittent. This
invention – if placed in large numbers in the Gulf Stream off the coast of South Florida – can generate
huge amounts of steady, low cost electricity. The costs of that power can be as low as .9 of a cent per-kilowatt-hour
during the amortization period (see table in the section Gas Costs and
The decline in the production of North American natural gas and world
oil – combined with the very real threat of catastrophic global warming – have
created an urgent need for mankind to switch from fossil fuels to those energy
sources that are sustainable and non-polluting.
