Looking to the Future:
It’s amazing that here we are, 91 years after Popular Science published an article in July 1924 by then race car driver and automotive engineer Eddie Rickenbacker that was headlined “Flying Autos in 20 Years”, yet almost a century later, we’re still grounded. While flying cars remain a rather impractical idea, our lack of progress in other areas is somewhat surprising. Fusion power is where it’s always been; 30 years into the future. However, we already have the solar system’s best fusion reactor on hand that rises every morning and puts out incredible amounts of power. Storing that power has been the missing link. That link may now be found from an unlikely source, the co-founder of Pay Pal and CEO of Space X and Tesla Motors, Elon Musk with his new Powerwall technology.
Our vision of the future involves replacing current, outdated and wasteful energy technology with new highly efficient clean technologies that are well within our reach in the year 2015.
Power costs are going up and fuel prices are on a roller coaster, up one month, down the next, who knows were it will land? Oil will one day run out. What we do today to change our energy ways will benefit our children and all future generations.
New Energy Choices:
We can either keep burning through fossil fuels or decide to switch to clean, efficient electric solutions. These include:
- Solar Power
- Wind Power
- Bio fuels
- High Efficiency Battery Storage (Tesla Powerwall)
- High Efficiency LED lighting
- Thermal Heat Pumps
- Passive solar home design
This is our future vision of energy infrastructure. No more grid, no more power bills. Power could be generated on a neighborhood by neighborhood basis and shared by several homes. This would allow many users to benefit from the investment of one “micro” power station.
Each home with its own battery storage system pulling juice from the local solar and wind generator. Natural gas could then be preserved for cooking and heating only. It all makes perfect sense, so why aren’t we doing something about it now?
Microlinx Technologies is currently exploring partnerships with producers of high efficiency energy products to build the foundation of a clean energy future for all. Contact us if you are interested in joining our energy revolution mission.
