Hybrid Generator Creates Solar Energy in Compact Footprint

April 22, 2015 By Linda Hardesty

JouleboxAfter three years of prototyping, planning and certifying, ECO-GEN Energy is demonstrating its JouleBox Hybrid Generator, which provides a combination of conventional solar panels with an integrated turbine generator backup system. It is stackable and expandable from 60 kW up to utility scale 50 MW projects.

The JouleBox Hybrid Generator, which has been certified by Underwriter’s Laboratory, delivers electricity without any fossil-fuel sources. ECO-GEN says a 20 MW JouleBox uses less than 55,000 square feet versus a comparable solar farm that would need more than 600 acres.

Each commercial JouleBox Hybrid Generator pod is 60 kW, which will produce 525,600 kWh annually. Multiple pods can be configured to meet any size commercial application. The onsite generators continually produce energy using a patent/pending design.

  1. Is this for real? Sounds to good to be true and I havent been able to verify if its in production or if its a pipedream.

  2. Per the manufacturer’s web site:
    1. Solar panels charge a battery
    2. The battery runs a blower
    3. The blower pushes air thru a wind turbine
    4. The wind turbine powers a generator
    5. All laws of physics are defied and the blower/turbine/generator system is more efficient than just having the battery directly produce usable power.

  3. Send your client snipe hunting and when he gets back sell him the Brookland Bridge. See number 5 below underlined not going to happen,
    5. All laws of physics are defied
