Nature's Electric Inc.

      Nature's Electric is dedicated to developing clean, cost effective, renewable electricity for people's homes, businesses and industries. By providing electricity from renewable resources like the sun and the wind, we save our planet from pollution and from depleting the non-renewable natural resources like oil and gas which will be needed in the future. Solar and wind energy have developed over the last decade to the point where they are reliable and can compete economically with the wasteful and environmentally dangerous electric generating systems of the past.

      Unlike many of the new deregulated electric companies, Nature's Electric has set the noble goal of generating electricity from clean, renewable resources. Many of the other new electric companies just sell electric power to consumers and businesses. Much of this does not come from renewable resources. Our renewable resources are the wind, using wind turbines, and the sun, using solar concentrating collectors and photovoltaic. Come join Nature's Electric as we make the electricity we need from resources that will make our planets future bright and clean.

Wind Farm Technology

      Over two decades ago, people realized they could generate electricity by connecting a wind mill to an electrical generator. They started building larger ones to produce not only enough power for themselves, but would have extra power to sell. Companies were formed to make Wind Turbine Generators (WTG) large enough to power large ranches and many nearby homes. These initial WTG's had problems with unusual wear, mechanical stress and weather damage. But through refinements of design and determination, the modern WTG and Wind Farm emerged. Various governments supported this development and reliable WTG's and wind farms grew.

      The traditional methods of generating electrical power for homes and businesses came under pressure from environmental and cost issues. Although nearly half of the electric energy produced today comes from burning coal, it is a primary environmental target. Governments are requiring more and more pollution control measures. Another major raw material for producing electricity is natural gas. But costs are rising and even though it does not pollute as much as coal, it too is feeling the pressures of environmental regulations. Nuclear plant problems and the potential for catastrophic disaster have limited its use in electric generation.Electric generating from renewable resources account for less than 2% of all the power produced in the US. In places like Germany, Denmark and Spain, the figure is more than 10%. California is the US's largest producer of electricity from wind. Texas is growing very fast. The cost of natural gas and the costs for pollution controls in coal plants is on the rise. This is why our next project is a 60 MW wind farm outside of Midland Texas. Here we have a culture that has grown up around the energy business and would like to be on top of the business sector again. Here we have abundant land and wind. Here we have the next logical choice for safe, clean, renewable energy production. The source of energy will not fade as long as the sun shines in the sky.

Solar Energy Systems

Photovoltaic is used where a long power cord is impractical

Photovoltaic

      Photovoltaic's is the hot topic in renewable energy production. Research is being carried out in all areas from base silicone through cell and panel manufacturing, to large scale installations and tracking. Photovoltaics (PV) have found their largest installed base in individual remote installations where connection to a power source is inconvenient. That is why you see them everywhere from desktop calculators, to school zone flashing lights and the International Space Station.


      That is not to suggest that PV can not power a home or business. They are being used on parking garages and roof tops just for that purpose. There is even a drive to put photocells on a million roof tops. However, the typical 10% efficiency of current PV technology has limited its use in grid connected and solar farm applications. Combine this with the economic factors, and that is the reason Nature's Electric has dropped the PV portion of the Midland Energy Farm.




There are several types of Solar Thermal designs

Solar Thermal

      The other major type of solar electric generation is called Solar Thermal. Solar Thermal has long been known as a more efficient means of converting solar energy into large amounts of electricity which could feed the power grid. In fact over a decade ago, a large solar thermal installation in California used parabolic mirror troughs to concentrate solar energy in a pipe running down the focal point of the mirror. The pipe collected the heat to make steam for a steam generator.


      A more recent design from Australia in 2002 uses reflected light to heat a mile high chimney. Hot air flowing up the chimney would spin turbines which would then spin generators. Nature's Electric is developing a long term plan using the best features of these types of designs. The Midland site is ideal for this renewable energy farm. Not only is it one of the sunniest places in America, but its dry climate allows cooling towers to operate very efficiently.

Hydrogen

      Nature’s Electric is intensely interested in making the “Hydrogen Future” a reality today. We are especially strong believers that hydrogen from renewable sources will be the perfect transportable fuel media for our future. It can reduce air pollution and at the same time it can reduce our dependence on foreign oil and gas. It is part of a clean reusable energy cycle. This cycle starts with a basic clean molecule, water, and adds renewable energy that started from the best and safest nuclear power plant, the sun. This renewable energy could be anything; wind, solar collector, biomass, wave energy, etc. The water and renewable energy are combined at the source to make hydrogen. The hydrogen is then transported. It can be transported in a pipeline, truck, vehicle fuel tank, or made where it is used. Finally, the hydrogen is used to get energy back out and the resulting process makes water, thus allowing the process to start over.

      We have many active and pending hydrogen projects, and are involved in many areas. However, our focus is in renewable energy for hydrogen and hydrogen’s mass production and transport. We also support the smooth transition from our current system to a hydrogen based energy economy. We work with Hythane (a hydrogen and natural gas mixture) including its production, use, and transport. We have projects to upgrade existing natural gas pipelines for Hythane and Hydrogen. We also have plans for large-scale hydrogen production and distribution.

      We maintain the eHydrogen Website. Please see the link at the left. This website provides exciting and infromative insight in to future uses of this clean energy carrier. Using clean renewable energy and eHydrogen the future Hydrogen Economy can lead us energy independants and still leave a clean planet for future generations.

The History of Nature's Electric

      On January 1, 2002, Texas deregulated sale of electricity to the end user. The cost for electrical service began to drop as competition flourished. Wind power had matured and wind farm activity in Texas began a rapid growth spurt. This activity was enhanced by government supported Production Tax Credits (PTC), which supplemented a wind farm's earnings for each kilowatt of power produced. During this same time frame, the government was working to further solar electric production with research grants.

      In early 2002 while seeing the domestic and economic benefits of renewable energy, SDRG Controls started a new business venture called SDRG Energy. The new group began by submitting requests for solar research grants and by developing a combined solar and wind project for Midland, Texas. When the solar portion was found to be uneconomical with heavy subsidies, it was dropped for a profitable wind only renewable energy farm.

      In early 2003, Nature's Electric Inc. was formed to carry on the work started by SDRG Energy. Today they continue with development of the Midland Renewable Energy Farm. This project is beginning with a 60 MW wind farm project. Nature's Electric is also working to further solar energy development by developing a modern, cost effective solar thermal energy farm.

Projects and Applications

      Nature’s Electric is involved in numerous projects and applications, all dedicated towards our mission of being the world's premier clean and renewable energy company. We accomplish this by providing high value, renewable energy and hydrogen economy transition technology projects and products.

      Our energy projects utilize wind, solar thermal, and other renewable energy resources, nested to maximize the renewable energy retrieved per site, to generate both electricity and eHydrogen (hydrogen made from renewable energy). The eHydrogen can be stored and used to generate renewable electricity when other resources are in short supply, or marketed directly as a renewable energy resource. We partner with proven component suppliers such as those who manufacture and service wind farms, electrolyzers and steam turbine generators, and combine the components with our patent pending controller to store and supply renewable electric energy and hydrogen. We provide the only practical storage and regeneration of renewable electricity.

      We are also developing near term hydrogen transition technologies products, including hydrogen home heating and water heaters, with no carbon and very little NOx emissions, polymer and metallic coatings for H-ICE vehicles, liner technology for renewing old natural gas pipelines for hydrogen and for storage, and other applications.

Our Projects Include:

eHydrogen Promotion - Hydrogen from renewable energy

Renewable Energy Controller (US Pat. Pend.) - our patent pending controller maximizes production of eHydrogen from renewable energy sources, and provides a mechanism for storing and time shifting renewable energy production.
