It is based on the premise that there is alwaysone of 3 things happening on the planet at any given time: water is flowing, the wind is blowing or the sun is shinning. A land-based tower can also be built that generateselectricity from wind and solar only. Please feel free to use this for your own projects. Please note that each turbine is meant to rotate on its own axis independent of the other. They are not connected to each other. ie: when the wind blows, thewind turbine does not affect the water turbine.

Put one generator coil in at the top in an easy to maintain location (under a hinged solar panel, for example) and make thewind and water turbines capable of spinning freely when in reverse rotation. Your turbine blades should maintain a singular direction spin no matter whichangle the air/water current passes them. So with a simple gymbal, rachet, and pawl system per turbine on the axle shaft, you'll have less parts to maintainover time. Build to the specifications of any medium/large marine buoy and anchor it in your preferred body of water.It's a great concept. Are you testing your own prototypes?  matt392  says: Oct 11, 2013. 12:00 PM REPLY If I understand what you are saying, with a rachet system it is possible to have them spin in opposite directions at the same time on the same pole. Thiswas what I meant when I said on independent axis . Thank you for the information - I am not too familiar with building rotating turbines.Thank you for the compliment - at the moment I am not testing a prototype, but once I get a little more money together, I hope to do so.  JonDecker  says: Sep 5, 2013. 7:20 AM REPLY One note, instead of stringing the electrical line over the top of the water, consider laying cables to avoid marine craft collisions.  matt392  says: Oct 11, 2013. 11:56 AM REPLY Good point; will keep that in mind.  anique0040  says: Jul 30, 2013. 9:36 AM REPLY very good  matt392  says: Jul 30, 2013. 12:07 PM REPLY Thank you - I will have to work on a small prototype version at some point.  Lama100  says: May 26, 2013. 11:35 AM REPLY cool idea, but the turbines should be seperated, because there would be much energy wasted because of air/water resistance ;)  matt392  says: May 26, 2013. 2:13 PM REPLY Each turbine was meant to rotate separately. I will make an update to the plans.  Lama100  says: May 27, 2013. 4:22 AM REPLY ok, i thought they are both on the same axis ;) sorry!  matt392  says: May 27, 2013. 8:42 AM REPLY No need to apologize, it was a good point. I put the note in to make it clear.  matt392  says: May 26, 2013. 9:07 PM REPLY Ok, made the updates. Thank you for the suggestion.  Kiteman  says: May 26, 2013. 1:45 AM REPLY Nice idea.  matt392  says: May 26, 2013. 2:03 PM REPLY Thank you! Greatly appreciate it.
