We are taking the Solar Turbine project to the next level. Nick Raaum is our Project Manager, and he will be arriving here in about 2 weeks. He has put in his 2 week’s notice for leaving his post as a performance engineer in a coal-fired power plant.
Here is a brochure on the Solar Turbine:
We are serious about the first link in this brochure. Http://OpenFarmTech.org/Solar.html links to a working paper for developing the Solar Turbine, under a Community Supported Manufacturing model. This is OSE Working Paper #1. It is on the OSE wiki – so you can review, edit, and comment. We are making some heavy claims there – so we invite you to poke holes in any of the arguments.
Here’s how you can get involved.
- Print a copy of the brochure above and pass it to your friends and networks. You can dowload a high resolution version and source files here. Let us know if you can help us with at-cost color printing or bulk mailing by email.
- Review and comment on the technical aspects of the proposal at the wiki
- Donate to the Solar Turbine Project
Let others know about this project. Together, we can make Solar Thermal Concentrator (STC) electric generation a viable decentralization technology.
