We have chosen disabled adults to be the beneficiaries of this demonstration project. Self sufficiency and teamwork that creates employment, housing and a very high quality of life are the goals of http://zeitgeistgeorgia.com/DowntownTZM.pdf
We now have this project debt free, which is central to being a demonstration for a resource based economy. With the foundation poured, the land and all the construction paid off, permits and licenses secured, we are to the point of welcoming ideas that we can incubate along with this project. Our focus is providing medical care for disabled populations by training disabled populations but we do have some interesting side projects, and we would like to invite other people to find a home for their projects here. One of our side projects is a very interesting biomass heater, in operation, that can produce steam very efficiently. We are looking to use a steam powered electrical generator to take us off the grid and off fossil fuels. Did you know that about 3lbs of dead wood from forest floors has the same BTU as 1lb of gasoline? Steam power is a lot more efficient than combustion engines! We can produce a bugout generator on a small car trailer keeping the total weight under 1,000 lbs. Add an electric chainsaw, plug in your electric vehicle to the trailer and 320 lbs of wood (about 8 cu/ft or 8 small trunks) gets you the same distance as a tank of gasoline. And when you arrive at your destination you have your heat and power with you, add a reverse osmosis unit for water and you are off the grid and on green renewable energy. (Our heater also takes carbon and ash out of the smoke which exits the generator very cool.)
We have room to expand for more office, factory or housing space. If your idea does not add debt to this project, lets hear it?
Please take the time to make suggestions.
Good luck in your projects, but above all, push yourself away from the computer and take action!
