EAGLE-RESEARCH MISSION
Eagle-Research is an organization that develops and distributes practical energy solutions. We define practical as simple, inexpensive, environmentally-considerate, easy to build, low maintenance and, applicable to small scale energy needs. We gather information from diverse sources, perform comprehensive experiments using rigorous standards, then publish how-to books to share the results with other researchers and the general public. We believe that writing books insures that these technologies will be secured public knowledge, and that our patent-free philosophy promotes increasingly better energy solutions. Eagle-Research does not accept government grants. The money from the sale of our books and devices is used to finance on-going research.

DISCLAIMER
This book is sold for research and/or experimental purposes only. Therefore the results, which will vary according to the user’s knowledge, expertiseand application should be considered strictly experimental. George Wiseman, his associates and/or distributors, assume no responsibility for damage or injury due to the reader’s use or misuse of information or instructions presented herein. Although care is taken to present accurate information: “If we knew what would happen, it wouldn’t be an experiment.” Therefore, the author will not retroactively inform or reimburse buyers if (when) there are corrections or updates to this book. Contact Eagle-Research for the latest developments. If the conditions outlined in the proceeding paragraphs are not acceptable, the buyer will return the book immediately to the seller, for a full refund.

WORK IN PROGRESS
Eagle-Research is a research and development organization dedicated to finding the best possible energy solutions. Because the nature of research and development is an evolving process, we are continually improving on the technologies we are working with. Though we’re proud of our commitment to constant and never-ending improvement, we do recognize there is an unfortunate side-effect: Our ‘best’ today will pale in comparison to our ‘best’ tomorrow. At any given date, the Eagle-Research discoveries, which are distributed in the form of web information; books; videos or devices, are at varying stages of development. Therefore, by the time our most up-to-date ‘best’ can be compiled, organized, produced & distributed, we’ve already improved upon the information. We’re working as fast as we can.

EAGLE-RESEARCH ADVOCATES PATENT-FREE TECHNOLOGY
“I differ from most inventors in many ways. For one, I actually make my living and finance continued research by inventing. Two, I don’t hold-back ‘secrets’ of my innovations. Three, I do not patent my work. It is distributed worldwide as public knowledge, so no one else can patent it either. Actually, the patent office is very inefficient and people have gotten patents on my technology... usually to fraud investors. However, the patent is worthless. Patent law states public domain information is not patentable.

FINANCING OUR RESEARCH
As more work and research gets done, we will write further books in each of our lines of research. By writing a series of books in this manner, we can keep you updated on the latest information on energy saving research. Selling information is how we make money to continue our research. Therefore, you will not do yourself or your friends a favour if you copy this book to distribute to your friends. In doing so, you deprive us of funds to advance the research that will help us all.

INTRODUCTION
For years, people have been contacting Eagle-Research for that elusive, quick, easy and inexpensive free energy machine, to address their energy needs. Unfortunately, no such magic exists, just yet. And so the controversial and emotional issue of electric meters carries on for both the public and the Utilities. In the meantime, Eagle-Research continues to find and publish practical interim energy solutions. And at the same time, keep searching for and experimenting with any free energy means that is potentially viable. Eagle-Research’s mission is to push beyond the edge of conventional technology, looking for ways to tap sources of free energy like cosmic rays, orgone energy and gravity power. And then present practical solutions directly to individuals. The Reverse Electric Meter (REM) technique is one such interim solution. Before we actually get to the nuts and bolts of this technique, there are a few issues to be understood: ❶ Utilities do not necessarily tell all. It is not in their best interest to do so. ❷ Electric meters can, and do, malfunction. Unless you know that Utilities disclose only what they must and, that your electric bill might be higher that it could be due to a faulty meter, you remain out-of-pocket. We absolutely do not advocate the damaging or modifying of an electric meter in any way. That is not the purpose of this book. We do, however, advocate education of the public so they can determine if they

have a faulty meter. Most Electric Utilities are co-operative in servicing problems, if the customer brings it to their attention. Williams (see resources) educates people on the factors that cause electric meters to over-rate, so you can determine if you are being overcharged. His literature explains, very well, how power meters can be inaccurate. ❸ Being an informed consumer, who is willing to take at least some responsibility, is the only possible way of retaining one’s power. We also advocate people taking individual responsibility for their lives, instead of depending on ‘big brother’ for their comfort and needs. We do not say that a large organization is bad. We believe an interdependent organization formed of independent individuals is inherently stronger. This book is mainly about teaching the technique of overdriving an induction motor to use as an effective generator that is ’phaselocked’ to the Utility Grid — the REM technique. The REM technique allows Independent Power Producers (IPP) to simply, safely and reliably feed their excess power into the Utility Grid. This process turns their electric meter backwards in a very inexpensive and totally legal manner. The REM technique is, in a word, ‘practical’. We don’t detail how-to build your own power system in this book. Those details can be found in other literature. However, suggestions and sources that will help you design a practical home-power system with low-cost parts are included. We do outline how to use the REM technique to make the option of
Nikola Tesla
The REM technique uses the same induction motor as originally invented by Nikola Tesla. This man discovered and developed Alternating Current technology with all the applications that we use today. This includes: AC motors, generators, transformers and high voltage power lines; many ways to cure human diseases; Neon and Florescent lighting; radio, television, remote control, and all means of transmitting energy in a wireless form. If AC technology was cut out of our civilization, we would literally drop back to the technology level of the late 1800’s and billions of people would die. One man made our civilization possible. Yet he was almost erased from the history books because he dared to try to give free energy to every person on earth. Eagle-Research is corresponding with people who are trying to find the huge energy resources that Nikola Tesla proved existed. These energy resources would allow nearly unlimited energy for everyone on earth.

~ FYI ~
Most Utility electric meters are actually small induction motors. They use a bit of the power that goes through them to turn the meter wheel and dials. They turn in the direction that the power flows through them. So when you flow power through the meter, from you to the Utility, the meter turns backward.

meter can record 1,000,000 Kwh; which at $0.06 per Kwh is $60,000… Oops … Generally, this is not an issue. Most home-power systems (used for guerrilla net metering) don’t produce enough power to meet all the home’s needs. The average home uses 5 Kw and the average homepower project produces 1 Kw. In this case, the meter would simply record a consumption of 4 Kw. Not enough of a difference to attract the Utilities attention. Often the meter reading listed on your bill is not the actual meter reading. Sometimes the meter reader doesn’t complete his rounds and the Utility estimates what the reading would be. This estimate is usually pretty accurate but may not be if you’ve just started using the REM technique or if you are using REM intermittently. If you are guerrilla net metering, it is a good idea to keep your own record of your meter readings if there is any

When a hand is between two numbers, the lower number is recorded. If a hand is directly over or nearly over a number, but the dial to the immediate right has not yet passed zero, the reading is the lower number. In the example below, the reading is 14,667 Kwh.

TESTING YOUR ELECTRIC METER
We had a neighbor who had $100 per month electric bills. Since we lived next door, in a similar dwelling and had only $30 per month bills, something was wrong. (We were not using REM.) With consent from the landlord, we checked our Utility meters (using the continuous power formula) and found both of our Utility meters to be accurate. By checking the neighbor’s home loads, one breaker at a time, we also found that the thermostat for his hot water tank was stuck in the

Eagle-Research is working on an innovative home-buildable power system now. It uses a high voltage battery bank (lots of batteries in series to make 240 volts), which are charged by the Grid or with a Capacitive Battery Charger (run directly from your induction generator). Then you build your own simple high efficiency inverter to provide 120 / 240 VAC to your home just as the Grid does now; and can be used to ‘signal’ your induction generator too. This system can be twice as efficient as the old low voltage inverters that you buy. Another advantage to this homepower system is simple, efficient electric cars (to be discussed in other books).

possibility of reversing the meter too far. Your electric meter has dials that record the number of Kwh of electricity used in your home or business. It is important to know that some hands turn clockwise while others turn counter-clockwise. Each adjacent dial turns in the opposite direction and must be read in the direction it actually turns.

READING YOUR ELECTRIC METER
When using the REM technique, without a Utility contract, it is vital to know how to read your meter. If the Utility meter reader ever records a reading, that is less than the last one, you’ll get a huge bill! A five-dial

ON position. It was using 1500 watts continuously. When a water tank overheats, it drains hot water. He had been throwing hundreds of dollars literally ‘down the drain’. It turned out that several of the Condos had a similar problem that the landlord was able to correct.

Continuous Power Formula # revs = the total number of times the meter wheel made a complete revolution during the testing time. Can be any number you choose, more is more accurate. Kh = The Kh printed on the face of the meter. Sec = the time (in seconds) that it took to complete the # revs. Watts = #revs x Kh x 3600 sec

Check your actual meter performance

❶ Shut off absolutely everything in your home (throw all breakers) except for one receptacle. ❷ Plug in a fixed load (a bank of ten 100 watt light bulbs). ❸ Count the meter wheel revolutions as you time (in seconds). The meter wheel is divided into 100 increments. For simplicity, always start and finish on the same increment (zero). Since you are checking the meter performance, you are measuring the power used to drive your load (in watts). Your load is 1000 watts, so the formula answer should equal 1000 watts. If it is within a couple of percent, you are probably okay. Light bulbs can vary that much in performance. The more accurate your load, the more accurate your test.

Like any organization, Utilities don’t want to change because it involves a certain amount of bother. So the Utilities make it difficult for us, mostly using a combination of paperwork and inspections (read: ‘red tape’). Since they see a change coming, they are trying to get themselves into the most advantageous position possible. They have a ‘vested interest’ in not telling people all of their rights, because they want those rights limited. Through lobbying, the Utilities have managed to define ‘avoided cost’ as the power loss of transportation (T) and distribution (D), excluding manufacture costs. And so, they figure they need only pay you about 1 to 2 cents per Kwh that you feed them. Since all of the T & D costs haven’t been included, this cost is often too low. Be sure to check your Utility’s actual full T&D costs, including: Capital Amortization of Grid installation; Maintenance materials (poles, wire, bolts, insulators, etc.); Maintenance labor costs; Maintenance equipment costs; and any other actual costs. You have the right to ask them for this documentation which is also available from the Public Utility Commission for your State. From the Utility’s point of view, the best option is to pay you the minimum ‘avoided cost’ for the power you sell to them and charge a retail rate (up to $0.18 per Kwh) for the power you buy from them. To do this, they typically want to install two meters on your property. Both of these meters are designed so they will not turn backward. One meter records the power coming into your property and one records the power going out. Usually, the Utility will try to get you to pay for the cost of the meters. Many people have

If you leave ten 100-watt light bulbs burning for 1 hour, you’ve used 1 Kwh. If you leave one 100-watt light bulb burning for 10 hours, you’ve used 1 Kwh. Even tiny electrical loads add up to kilowatt-hours over the period of a year. When electricity is used needlessly or wastefully, it’s like a hole draining money out of your pocket. Usually, electric meters measure kilowatt-hours very accurately. Your energy usage can be easily checked against your bill if you know how to read your meter and do an energy evaluation of your home. Most people will save hundreds of dollars by simply taking the time to do a proper energy evaluation of their home and implementing energy saving techniques.

SELLING YOUR POWER
We've talked about the advantages of turning an electrical meter backward and explained how to do it. The question is ‘Will the Utility buy your power?’ The answer is YES! The law (in Canada and the USA) requires the utilities to pay, at the very least, ‘avoided cost’ for the power you feed them. Our vision is a diversified power Grid, with many, large and small, sources of power. The Utilities would own sections of the Grid and essentially become ‘power brokers,’ making power, buying power and selling power. This is an ideal scenario in many ways but would require a fundamental change in the Utilities’ attitude. ‘Deregulation’ of the power Grid supports this vision.

gone for this deal because they don't know any better. This ignorance has got to stop!
Examples of 2-Meter Billing:

How the Law works:

assume retail rate $0.06 and T&D $0.01: ❶ Use 5000 Kwh; produce 3000 Kwh; pay the Utility $270 ❷ Use 5000 Kwh; produce 5000 Kwh; pay the Utility $250 ❸ Use 5000 Kwh, produce 8000 Kwh; pay the Utility $220 From our point of view, we want ‘Net Billing’. This is where you get paid the full retail rate for power you’ve used and replaced as well as true T&D cost for the net excess power. Net Billing is what makes home-power production practical. For Net Billing, you keep your old meter, which records electrical flow both frontward and backward. As you use power from the Grid, you are billed your regular rate, as per normal. When you feed power back into the Grid, the meter turns backward and actually gives you a credit of your normal rate! When you then feed in more power to the Grid than you’ve used, you get paid T&D ‘avoided cost’.
Examples of Net Billing:

① The law requires that the Utilities pay for any power fed into them. Since they insist on the right to seal the meter and replace the meter at their option, the cost of any meter is theirs. ② The law clearly states that (if the customer is feeding less than 100 Kwh) which meter is installed is the option of the customer, not the Utility. So you can legally keep your meter that turns backward and legally turn it backward. This is your most advantageous choice. It allows ‘net billing’. ③ The law clearly shows that the billing arrangements are to be for the benefit of the customer, further showing ‘net billing’ to be the option of choice. Net billing is the only option that makes sense and is your legal right. Net billing means you run your meter backward to feed power into the Grid and forward to take power from the Grid. If your usage from the Grid is exactly the amount of power you fed into the Grid, your net billing is ZERO! If you used more power from the Grid than you put in, your net billing would be a bill for the difference at the going rate for power. If you put more power into the Grid than you’ve used, you'd have a credit with the Utility. They'd pay you ‘avoided cost’. Obviously, it is to your advantage to use up your own power credit instead of taking the ‘avoided cost’ payment. ④ The law requires that the Utility buys the power from you, not that you sell the power to them. So the onus of paperwork is on them, not on you. You can legally set up a power system without informing them and

you can continue to feed power into the Grid if they find out you are doing so.
Speak Up Net Metering was accepted in Europe several years ago, and the result has been wonderful. Europe’s energy Grid became more stable and they acquired energy from sources that the Utilities could not access. Europe also has power management programs, like using the deceleration energy of one electric train to help accelerate another. Each State has the right to implement it’s own ‘net metering’ laws; so the battle continues at each level of government. If you care about the future of your electrical power, it becomes your responsibility to contact State and Federal Representatives and let them know that you care, and that you support net billing for a stable, interdependent, diversified Grid. It is important to reduce electrical use and to increase efficiency of use, but it is vital to increase electrical production. There are GigaWatts of potential in micro-power, which can be developed on an individual level. Politicians address the people who speak up (lobby) loudest. Your voice counts.

relatively simple if the customer knows his rights and simply sticks to them. We know of this actually happening to an independent sawmill owner in British Columbia, Canada. The sawmill is set up near a creek that flows off a mountain and also near the Utility Grid. He set up the entire sawmill to run with electric motors. (In BC most such sawmills use internal combustion power plants because they are far from the Grid). He had his sawmill connected to the Grid and then put in a hydropower plant, and used the REM technique. He paid low Utility bills for a long time. One day he shut down the sawmill for a couple of weeks, but forgot to shut off his hydro-power. While he was gone, the electric meter kept going in reverse ‘til it went past the last meter reading. When he got the bill (for thousandsof-dollars), he immediately went into the Utility office and got it corrected. Then he got the on-site inspection and net-metering contract.

It’s your choice if you even want a contract with them. Further, they cannot make a deal to which you do not agree. But, before you think you can charge anything you wish, remember that the law does state that they don't have to pay more than ‘avoided cost’ for the net power that they buy. Just make sure to insist on actual avoided cost and net billing.
===========================

You do want your power system to be safe. If you shock some poor lineman, you will be liable for prosecution. Use the safety procedures we’ve suggested as a guideline. Get written documentation of your local Utility’s policies and regulations, before you actually build your system. The REM technique meshes with the Grid so smoothly, there is no way for the Utility to actually know if a customer is feeding them power. They may even come out to change the meter, thinking the old one is bad. The Utility usually finds out when the customer accidentally feeds in more power than he used, resulting in a lower meter reading than the previous one. The Utility computer assumes that the customer used enough power to run the meter completely forward to reach that point. The computer issues the customer a bill for many thousands of dollars. The customer immediately brings the outrage to the Utility’s attention and the Utility does an onsite inspection. Now the Utility needs to go through the paperwork with the customer to set up the contract. This can be

RETAINING POWER
If you have micro-power potential of less than 100 Kwh, you can go ahead and connect up the Grid using the REM technique right now. You can get yourself on annual billing right away. You’ll likely pay higher bills the first year, but you'll get that money back at the end of the year. Before you decide to approach your Utility and make a contract, become very familiar with your rights. Some Utilities perceive that it is in their best interest to take advantage of your ignorance. It is possible to hook up and operate your own system before contacting

There are currently many people with micro-power potential hook up to the Grid who simply don't bother telling their Utility what they are doing. These people are called Guerrilla net metering independent power producers. They feed enough power into their meter to keep it near zero. This can continue for years and is perfectly legal (as far as we know), particularly if you use a plugreceptacle to plug your power system into your home electrical system. If you ‘hard-wire’ it in you come under various electrical codes.

Dear Alternative and Sustainable Energy Enthusiast, I’m a full time self-employed inventor. I research things that interest me, for use in my own life. The plans I sell are not just some armchair theorist brainstorming (though I usually start a project that way). I build the projects and make them work. They need to (and do) work because I use them myself. I develop them, redesign them, refine them and once I’ve figured out how to ‘DO IT’ in the most practical way I can... I DO NOT PATENT! I write a book; the books allow me to 1. Help (teach) a LOT of people AND 2. Bring in the money I need to pay bills and fund further research. 3. Make sure the technology is not lost if/when the Vested Interest finally shuts me down. I’ve been a self-employed inventor since 1986 (started Eagle-Research in 1984). I (and thus Eagle-Research) am ENTIRELY SELF FUNDED, literally from satisfied customers. I do not accept Government grants or any money from anywhere that has any strings attached. Selling these books is how I fund research worth millions of dollars (and bypassVested Interest Suppression). Most of the money I make and years of my time go into to developing (and upgrading) innovations. Innovations that you can now know for the price of a book. This is why, when people copy and/or give away my books, they hurt 1. Me (copyright violation and loss of income), 2. YOU (you are denied technology upgrades on technology you’ve purchased), 3. All of society (everyone is denied practical innovation choices that could have been)… On Scribd.com, otherwise well-meaning and enthusiastic people uploaded my books, which were downloaded (for free) over 10,000 times. That could have financed my Gravity Machine or an improved Free Energy Accumulator... To help enthusiastic people spread the word LEGALLY, we’ve started an affiliate program. As an affiliate, you will get PAID when you refer people to us and they buy any of our products. By now you’ve likely realized that most of this book’s pages are not included in this free preview. You can find a full authorized latest edition of all our books and kits in our eStore. http://www.eagle-research.com/store/ All products sold with 100% money back Satisfaction Guarantee. Use coupon code “ Scribd130313 ” to get a one time 20% discount on an order (good until 2016). You can also find a (purchase separately) online Resources that keeps this technology current as there are corrections, upgrades, options, proofs, FAQ, Blogs, Forums, links, similar research by others, etc. (plus a lot of free information) You can also subscribe to my eNews (see website sidebar) to stay informed on what’s happening. I thank you for your interest and I look forward to helping you achieve what I’ve already done.

Welcome to our world, where you can join our team to make energy independence happen without depending on politicians or any other Vested Interest. We don’t patent and we encourage you to join our efforts by sharing your thoughts and results. We act as an information gathering point for the shared thinking of you and many others, each giving the unique perspectives that, collectively, result in fast effective technological advances. We then experiment to merge the most practical solutions and then share the updated information, so each of us benifits fully from the input of thousands of minds. We’ve been doing this since 1984; they now call this technique ‘open-source’:) Our books were our ‘State of Art’ when written, and in many cases are still ahead of ‘public’ knowledge. But our technologies improve quicker than we can print and distribute updates. So we have implemented an internet based solution to the challenge of keeping you updated with the latest corrections, updates, options and other resources that will help you incorporate the newest and best innovations into your life. When you buy our Products and Kits, from our eStore, the website automatically authorizes your eStore account to access the applicable secure sections of the Eagle-Research online Resources; where the latest (constantly upgraded) information is placed. This method assures that the people who have financed the research (by purchasing the eProduct) will have the latest information that results from their financial input. Note: At this time Eagle-Research eBooks are not automatically authorized to access their (optional) online Resources. For eBooks you need to purchase the applicable Resources separately, independently from the purchase of the eBook. Also, purchase of online Resources does NOT include the eBook. When you feel you are ready for the latest, updated, information, you can go to the Eagle-Research eStore: http://www.eagle-research.com/store/ and buy this eBook and (if you choose) it’s related online Resources. Be sure to subscribe to the Eagle-Research eNewsletter to be informed when new information is available. To subscribe: see the left sidebar of most of the website pages or go to: http://www.eagle-research.com/cms/eagle-research-enotices Again, welcome :) May the Blessings be, George Wiseman, JOAT, President, CEO of Eagle-Research.com

WHO IS GEORGE WISEMAN
George Wiseman is the founder and president of Eagle-Research, a non-profit organization that develops and distributes energy-saving solutions. He is multi-talented and multi-degreed, but singular in his mission: to promote self-sufficiency at the individual level by discovering and sharing the best, all-around, practical solutions. George attributes his self-reliance, resourcefulness and commitment to our natural environment, to his rural roots. “Dad didn’t believe in having any equipment on the place (hobby farms in Montana, Oregon, Alaska and finally a ranch in British Columbia) that we couldn’t fix ourselves. We had running water if we ran and got it. And electricity was something that came in batteries”. His farmgrown, western cowboy philosophy combine well with his inventor persona to create a world-class visionary. He takes the hand-up rather than the hand-out approach to everything. Since 1984, George has been making his living as an inventor and author. His fuel-savers have gained him a worldwide following of satisfied consumers who eagerly pursue his work for new offerings. George continues to impress his customers, peers and competition with practical innovations that can be successfully home-built. His latest product, the ERxxxx WaterTorch, is making great waves in dozens of industries around the globe. As much as anything, it’s his commitment to patentfree technology development that has earned George Wiseman a champion reputation. Openly sharing research findings benefits everyone by constantly elevating the standards of viable energy solutions. George’s work has been featured on radio and in newspapers around North America and at many ‘alternative’ energy gatherings including the International Tesla Society Symposiums and Exotic Research Conferences. He lives with his bride, Tenaj, and their brood of cats, in a lush valley of the Rocky Mountains. Individuals wishing to participate in the project may access the required reading list, that will be updated from time-to-time, on the Eagle-Research website: (www.eagle-research.com) Comments and/or contributions are invited from anyone who is committed to cultivating dream seeds. Nay-sayers are better not to waste their time. Negative input will be wholeheartedly disregarded.

Too low they build, who build beneath the stars.❞ - Edward Young -
