Review of a radio interview with inventor Pete Sumaruck. Pete has much to tell us and he tells it in a comfortable articulate manner. I’ve know about his energy production system for more than two years but, this interview gave me a great deal of new information. Firstly, everyone asks, “How does it work?”
James Robey of the Kentucky Water Fuel Museum (James Robey’s book http://www.amazon.com/Water-Car-Turn-Into-Hydrogen/dp/B000FFM6D4 ) began by telling his audience that Pete’s system is, “a tweaking of AC electricity to the point where motors that normally require large amounts of energy can run on very little power by tweaking the AC signal.”
Motors running at 100% efficiency and nothing wears out – Later, Pete will say, “When you wipe out amperage, everything runs cool, there’s 100% efficiency, nothing wears out,” thus his company name, Zero-Amp Tech. Inc. Pete then elaborated on this concept and it’s many applications.
James asked if listeners can buy his technology. Pete told him about his manufacturing center, just opened this week, to produce his tabletop model at $100,000. each. That will allow the public to have the essentials of the technology and be able to replicate the concept – of course, patents rights are not included. Pete believes there are many individuals who are entrepreneurial and will want to go into business making gensets.
Example of an application – He has a 12kW and a 65kW prototype to show the possibilities (a 65kW is appropriate for a large home 2 thousand to 5 thousand sq. ft.). Pete gave the example of a man in Waco who owns numerous MacDonalds in the county, each incurring am energy bill of 4 to $6,000.00 a month. He would be able to take the technology from the demonstration model and adapt it to a generator at each of his restaurant locations. They could remain on the grid if they chose, and pay a minimum amount to their usual provider, aprox. $150.00, while saving the remainder of their previous energy bill.
With this technology, a natural extension for this business owner would be to develop a new enterprise – building and selling gensets. At this time, it is typical for a large restaurant to incur a $10,000. to $40,000.00 monthly energy bill. Pete knows this from experience – here he used the example of a T.G.I.Fridays formerly on (I actually knew it well) Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco. http://www.tgifridays.com/ It had to shut down when their energy bill rose from $10,000. to $40,000. a month over night.
Pete talked about how he took his technology to the U.S. Army in 2002. They wanted him to build 200 to 500 mobile “slave” 50kW generators to power ground operations in Iraq. At that time, each one of their 25kW generators was using 57 gallons of diesel a day. With Pete’s system, a 50kw genset would use only 6 gallons of gas (not diesel) over a 16 month period, no more. The cost for diesel would have been virtually eliminated.
Also at that time, Pete developed an application of his invention to apply to l8 wheel trucks for the government, trucks that could go from Los Angeles to Florida and back on 6 gallons (the magic number). Plus, Pete’s power units never produce emissions, so no pollution.
James Robey asked Pete how he came to first build his small tabletop display model. They allude to a company that agreed last December to buy Pete’s company, Zero-Amp Tech. Inc. thus promising to go into production. It was agree that Pete would build a prototype; he suggested a 12kw unit, purchased all the components even to include a still larger unit of 65kw, but the buyer insisted on something that could fit in the owner’s (Dr. Steve Greer and ORION) private plane. And they stipulated that Pete incorporate a battery into the unit.
When the prototype was complete March 9, these people did not express a desire to come to see their technology. What they did was delay and delay, past various deadlines, until the contractual agreement became null and void. It was found that Greer and Orion did not have the money for their outstanding $26 million payment. And now they were AWOL.
In the interview, Pete again used the analogy of a restaurant – he agrees to wire a new restaurant. Everything is in place, he comes to turn it on. The owners are pleased, “fine,” they say, “but I don’t want you to turn it on.” “But It’s ready to go, working perfectly, let’s turn it on.” “No, no…we don’t want you to turn it on.” “But it’s been ready for a while now, ready to use.” “No, no, don’t turn it on, go away.” Very strange way to do business, or not.
It is the author’s belief that “delay” was the primary tactic. If they wanted to stop Pete’s progress, they used delay and criticism…did they actually think they could stop him. They didn’t know how tenacious Pete Sumaruck.
Did Greer and Orion want to defeat new energy – James was incredulous, “These people professed to be supporters of the new energy/free energy movement.” “Yes, they did.” “Do you suppose they are part of those who want to actually defeat new energy.”… Pete, “It would appear that way.” James mentioned the deep corruption in both the government and corporate America involved in energy production, “…the coal lobby is huge.” He used an example of the coal industry that provides so much of America’s power…as well as much of it’s pollution. James said he isn’t surprised they would go to any lengths to protect their interests.
Writer’s comment: I draw your attention to
http://www.nytimes.com/2009/06/29/opinion/29easterbrook.html OP-ED article of 6/29/09 in The New York Times – “The Dirty War Against Clean Coal.” The author, Greg Easterbrook, believes obfuscation of the coal issue will pacify the Green complainers. Plus, he says the “new” style tech called “integrated gasification combined cycle” reduces greenhouse gases by a third. Let me remind you that Pete Sumaruck’s energy production system leaves no emissions – no greenhouse gases at all, and no detritus in water or earth.
“It’s not to their economic advantage to give the regular citizens a break,” says Pete. Greed is rampant in America. James says, “corruption runs so deep.” Pete, “Somebody’s got to do something; that’s why I’m doing this.” James, “I think that’s a fine thing. If you can be the catalyst, get things going, moving ahead.”
Pete told James that contrary to the impression of the military-industrial complex being completely against new energy, he championed those in the military he met in his year and a half at Fort Hood. They were all patriotic (unfortunately that word now has a negative connotation) Americans, honest people he could trust, who wanted the best for their soldiers.
They wanted a display unit to show to future manufactures, so Pete decided that this would be a good way to start the ball rolling into the production marketplace – his small factory will be the catalyst for others to go into production; it was a logical next step. He told the radio audience he will make only 55 of these units. Pete Sumaruck believes the entrepreneurial spirit is moving ahead, maybe hibernating but very much alive. People who see the future will want to participate in it. They won’t be afraid to change the world.
