I am with Ty M., who posted in the controversial wind-power thread, in wanting to know more about, think more about, earth batteries. Some good stuff was posted in that thread, but maybe we should have one devoted to this stuff.

I'm re-posting this link to start things off:

Wow! These are great responses.

John, thanks for bringing up earth-batteries and posting a link. So crucial. I welcome more links.

Craig, thanks for the videos, and thanks for pointing out that aquatic plants are necessary for the Plant-e system. I've known about them for more than a year now, but for some reason never bothered digging deeper. The benefits of sharing, I guess.

This is my first post at Permies.

I wonder if anyone has posted about Plant-e here yet? If not, that would blow me away. It is a low-tech system of getting electricity from garden soil.

Here is the CEO's TED Talk:

I'm not a fan of the fashionable so-called "alternative energy" systems. Even solar strikes me as ugly and clumsy. I think there are a lot more elegant solutions like Plant-e out there staring us in the face. We just need to wake up.
