DIY Magnetic Generator Kits: A Hot Business Idea
DIY magnetic generators may well offer great opportunities for entrepreneurship. As the world struggles to deal with our dwindling oil reserves combined with the need to reduce our reliance on petroleum based energies, interest in alternative energy sources is mushrooming.
What is a Magnetic Motor Generator?
Magnetic motor generators are machines that utilize the inherent force in magnets to produce motion. This motion, in turn, is harnessed to create electrical energy. Although the machines require a kick start from a battery or some other power source, once initiated, the movement is never ending. Therefore, they have the potential to generate an endless supply of free electricity. Maintenance is minimal; some inventors estimate the magnets themselves will last for a thousand years.
DIY magnetic generators are not available commercially at this time. There is considerable R&D underway for large industrial magnetic generators; some are expected to launch within the next few months. However, experts predict it could well be ten years before consumer machines are available commercially, and at a price we can afford.
Magnet Motor Machines for Home Use
Not surprisingly, a number of inventors have produced magnetic generators for home use. Some claim to be powering their homes with the free electricity they generate, and a few even say they are selling the surplus back to the power grid.
A YouTube search produces several video demonstrations of these various motors. However, most do not appear to be interested in a commercial application, but instead are interested in displaying their machines to the public and proving their point to sceptics.
This leaves the door wide open for an enterprising entrepreneur to step in and commercialize a magnet motor machine or a ready-to assemble kit. As things stand now, various DIY magnetic plans are available on the Internet. Some are free; others sell for a nominal fee like the Magnets4Energy plan.
The supplies and equipment to make these machines is readily available in hardware stores and electronic stores. However, some pieces do have to be fabricated in a shop, and some measure of skill with tools is required.
A ready-to-assemble kit would reach greater markets. DIY magnetic generators and could well become a hot business niche for this decade.
