Raising Generation Next
Here are some pictures and information about the H2OPESystem
the HOPE system is being used to power an aquaponics system. It
filters and circulates the water within the system providing an all
natural" off the grid" grow system for vegetable grow stations and
fish raising. By hooking into more solar panels you're able to
increase the power produced and provided by the system for your
specialized needs as they come up.
Power Sources: Power is provided by a 30W independant solar panel located on the lid
of the system. Additional power sources can be added to the system
like additional solar panels. Battery chargers can be also be used
to charge batteries indoors inbetween uses. For off grid living, in a
less then sunny enviroment, one can use other alternative power
generating sources like PMA(Permanant Magnetic Alternator) to
provide battery recharging. Wind generators are another source for
charging up the batteries. Having multiple recharging options is key
when you are faced with long term energy loss or if wanting to
become totally self sufficient.
Versatility Power Sources: The
back of the HOPE system has various power outlets for all your
power needs. The unit provides screw connectors for additional solar
panels. Two cigarette connectors are also provided for any
adaptors. A connection is also provided for direct 12V DC
Power: The HOPE system has it's own built in power inverter. This allows
you to convert the stored up electricity from the sun or other power
generating source and converts it to useable power. Now you can run
your tv, computer, lights or anything else needed in a no powered
UV Purified: UltraViolet purification uses a UV light source (lamp) which is
enclosed in a protective transparent sleeve. The lamp is mounted
such that water passing through a flow chamber is exposed to the
UV-C light rays. When harmful microbes are exposed to the UV rays,
their nucleic acid absorbs the UV energy, which then scrambles the
DNA structure of the organism. The cell is rendered sterile and can
no longer reproduce. The cell is now considered dead and is no
longer a threat. UV has a 99.99% rate of purification.
RO Filtered: What is Reverse Osmosis (RO)? Reverse Osmosis is a process in which
dissolved inorganic solids (such as salts) are removed from a
solution (such as water). This is accomplished by household water
pressure pushing the tap water through a semi permeable membrane.
The membrane (which is about as thick as cellophane) allows only the
water to pass through, not the impurities or contaminates. These
impurities and contaminates are flushed down the drain. This water
in a servival situation can be recycled through the system again or
used to water plants, flush toilets, wash cloths and any other water
sources. The waste water from the system is actually safe to drink
as it's already been passed through all the other filters that
typical water purification system stop at. RO is what you can call the
best of the best with nothing but pure water.
Power X 2: Unlike
anything else on the market today, HOPE uses two "on demand"
pump motors to power the system. We use only the best motors on the
market Shurflo pumps. Having two pumps allows you to filter water
and pump water all at the same time. It also allows you to hook up
hot and cold water to allow shower hookup and washing machines.
Alternative Charging Sources:
HOPE system has it's own power capabilities there are various other
means to charge the units batteries. One form is to attach a
PMA(Permanant Magnetic Alternator) to a stationary peddle bike.
Other options are wind power or hydro.
Portable: The HOPE system allows you to take it on the go for a weekend
camping trip or to your cabin in the woods for year round service.
It's small enough to fit in the back seat of a small car so no truck
is needed. The all season construction and water tight components
allow you to leave the unit outside in the elements. Your imagination
is the limit to how you set up this power unit to make it do what you
need it to do. The possibilities are endless and your ability to
utilize the system will be to your advantage for total off grid
