Would it be possible to
    #190299 - 01/28/09 01:27 PM (7 years, 10 months ago)

run two power plant from two gas generator off one electric motor(240 volt), cheaper since 240volt takes less to run. The 1st pp is 1500wt out-put, the 2nd is a 5500wt out-put. Producing 7000wt potential. While using only a fraction of power to run the 240volt motor from electric out-let. Trying to supplement energy cost?

Is this cost efficient or am I having a brain fart.

Please clarify what you mean. What is a power plant? And what are you trying to do?

Let me get this straight, you're saying you want to drive a generator with a 240v electric motor in order to generate 120v power...

That will absolutely not work. You are expending a lot of extra power converting from electric energy, to physical work, back to electrical energy.

:cop: Put the joint down and walk slowly to your nearest library!

Keep your mind open! :burnone:

No you can't. What you can do is still power from your neighbor or they have these little things that plug in to the wall that actually make the thing outside(i just woke up) not see how much energy is actually going through.

But you can guy a gas generator and run it off of that if you want. But not without the gas engines.......

Don't steal power! Nothing flags a grow faster than a sink in the grid, and I guarantee that the power co WILL find it and your grow. Stay safe.

You can't create energy from nothing. The power you get out of the system you are thinking of will not exceed the power it takes to run it.
