I applaud them! This is what can be accomplished when there's no interference from government or corporate influences.

A documentary showing you how we in the mountains can get sustainable renewable power from the flowing rivers and streams that cascade down from the tops of our mountains and one other that was made by creating a windmill using wind power. This generated enough to power up there generater giving them all the power that they needed and by placing the generater in the direction of the magnetic poles it turned even faster.
They used calor gas previously but the roads were getting impassable and delivery was becoming a problem. This is also something you can learn to do yourself. Just think!! no more Bills. Clean power, lets get this out to the power stations. Or do it yourself. Well done all of you. Janet.
