“Select Families to Live Rent-Free in an Australian Smart House”
I saw the title of this post on Good Magazine (when will my issues arrive…?), and came up with a fantasy totally not related to the article.. It is about if there will have some free/cheap rental apartment for the people who can manage and produce energy inside the apartment..
Let me talk about some reference, there is a project (sorry~ I forgot the name, this is a reference without reference) about redistribute the power produced by the windmill, solar panel in each household. According to my power plant visit in school, the electricity are normally sent to the house when they are needed, only in but no out, and the excess electricity will keep flowing around until its gone (consumed by the network resistance or whatever just gone and cant be use)..
Keep this concept and think about nowadays household (house-hold, not flat-hold or apartment-hold) are mostly equipped with solar panel or windmill (I’m talking about generator powered by wind power but not the Holland one for wheat).. And there will have the same power waste problem as the power plant while the sun and wind wont stop (when you dun need it…)
So, back to the project, there will be a network in between the community. A windmill can power a bulb, ten of mills can power a charismas tree (dun ask me stupid question about they drink water…).. The idea is here, when a household dun need the power while its still generating, the excess electricity will flow into the community network and looking for another household which need them to power their TV or water pump.. If you zoom out from this community, the electricity needed from this community will be decreased, thus the power plant need less fuel to produce less power, easy right~?
Okay, this is a brilliant idea form the scientist, and with my garage idea, it is similar/copy from their idea.. If there is an apartment with more than enough solar panels, mills covered, also equipped with hundred of power generating gadgets inside the house, like the Flush Generator, Rocking Horse Generator, Dance Floor Generator… …, so so so, in commercial way, customer scarify the household quality (outlook, set equipment…) to gain the rental refund from the landlord, isn’t it great~? Of course there is still a long way to go for the ultra high efficiency power generator, but they are moving fast!!~~
