Claim: Boswell Power Production Unit Runs Continuously Even Without Wind

Finally, we may have found a 24-7 clean energy device that is available for purchase, capable of powering a home (3 kW), yet looks like a conventional device. Boswell claims a few hundred have been installed since late 2007. 

NOTE: This technology has 
not been validated yet.

The [alleged] B1500, which is claimed to produce nearly 30,000 Watts, standing 20-30 feet tall on a 3-foot by 2-foot deep concrete pad.

Back in 2001 when I was first involved in disruptive clean energy technologies, we used to brainstorm how we could introduce these technologies to the market in a less threatening way.  One of the things we discussed was adding solar panels or wind turbines to the module to make the thing appear like a conventional renewable energy source, while in reality, the module was not at all dependent on wind but was harnessing free environmental energy of another variety altogether.  Neighbors and utilities would see the solar panels or wind turbine and think nothing of the home running on renewable power.


Available

Well, today I learned of just such a product that is now said to be available -- a wind turbine that doesn't need the wind, but actually gets its energy from some kind of electromagnetic phenomenon available constantly, 24/7.  

Invented by Jim Boswell of Fresno, California, the B800 supposedly sells for $15,000, and produces nearly 3,000 Watts continuously, plus or minus around 200 Watts -- easily enough to supply power for a 2,000 square foot home.  Installation typically runs between $300 and $500, and has not gone above $1000.  Shipping costs are on top of that.  He also supposedly sells a B1500, which he says puts out 30 kW, for commercial customers.  The installation costs for the B1500 are about the same as for the B800.  The units come with at least a 5-year warranty.

He's also wanting to do some larger units and installations of as high as 4 megawatts in size.


Net Metering

According to Boswell, if at any point during the day you need more than what the B800 or B1500 provide, then you pull from the grid.  If you need less than that, you send power back to the grid.  Depending on your usage, at the end of the month, your power company will probably owe you for the net amount you've sent back to them.  Most homes could get ahead with just a 2,000 Watt generator, and this one is said to produce 3 kilowatts, continuously, not up and down with the weather.

The best case scenario for wind generation production is "on" about 15-20% of the time on average.  The best case of Sun energy is 1/3 of the 24-hour day, and a comparable output of 3 kw, is going to cost $30-40,000 installed.  When weighing the $5/Watt installed price for the B800, remember that this generator is claimed to provide a steady, continuous output.  No up or down; just constant energy at nearly 3 kilowatts  Hence the quicker return on investment.

Depending on the cost of electricity, Jim says the unit can pay for itself in just 1-2 years.  Everything after that is free, if not profit from producing extra electricity.  Whether the wind is blowing zero or sixty miles an hour, the unit output is the same.

Jim said that he put the wind turbine in the original design as a way to self-start the system.  However, he said that it turns out that the system doesn't even need that, but that he kept it in there in order to keep the "wind turbine" classification for energy credits.


Wind Incentives

Because it is a "wind turbine", says Boswell, you can take advantage of the incentives available, depending on what state or country you're in, speeding up the payback period.  Also, you're not going to be inundated with questions from neighbors or the utilities.  You don't have to wait for the government to validate and come up with some new classification of energy device to include in their incentives.  It's not like this is deceptive or fraudulent.  It's still very much in keeping with the spirit of the incentives to encourage renewable energy installation.

Most importantly, you are gaining independence while cleaning the environment.  The unit produces no pollution, consumes no fuel, and requires very little maintenance.  And according to the inventor, it isn't up and down with the wind or sun.  It's constant.


In Production

To get this ready for production, Jim said he has been working with a company in China that he worked with previously on another project (a luxury boat).  They were looking out for him, encouraging him to get his patent, even paying for it.  They supposedly can deliver 100,000 of these new B800 units with just a 60-day lead time.  Jim says he has access to a warehouse as well as the know-how for running a warehouse, to run that kind of volume of sales through.

He said there is a 90,000 square foot Sing Gau (sp?) facility outside Shanghai that is being powered entirely by this technology. 

He said he's sold "a few hundred" of these since late 2007, a few dozen of them in the U.S., mainly in the Midwest, and the rest internationally.  He said lead time for delivery is presently 30 - 45 days, coming in from China.


Inventor Snapshot


Jim Boswell in a video posted as part of his run for Mayor of Fresno, June 2008.  He received less than 1% of the vote.

Jim tells the following account of his personal history.  Ten years ago, while working as a lineman, he had a very serious accident.  He was electrocuted with 16,000 volts, and fell to the ground, breaking his neck and femur, along with other bones.  He had to actually "rewire" his brain, as he puts it, in order to think, using parts of his brain that he didn't use before.

His family and friends call his recovery "miraculous."  While they say his personality hasn't changed, some of his cognitive abilities are very different.  He used to have a hard time drawing something as simple as a stick figure, but now he is able to draw fairly complex diagrams.

This wind turbine that doesn't need the wind isn't the only invention he's come up with.  We're talking to him about another design that, if real, is even more amazing -- more compact, more output -- which we have encouraged him to quasi open-source.  As if the above technology isn't enough, that one could totally change the landscape of energy and economics, with enough power to run a 400 HP pick-up truck, requiring no fuel, while costing less than $500 in parts, and being relatively simple to build.  400 HP is roughly equivalent to 300,000 Watts, enough to run 100 households at 3,000 Watts continuously.


Boswell's streetlights line a street in fog at approximately 3 a.m. in China.

Jim also claims to have a hybrid wind/solar technology for powering streetlights and parking lot lights, which he says could save the city of Fresno $40 million annually (including savings from copper wire thefts), or the state of California $80 billion annually, or the U.S. $800 billion annually -- nearly the amount of the recent stimulus package.

Jim says he has been running his own home on the B800 device for several months and has been earning credits from Pacific Gas & Electric, which he cashes in with a local restaurant who wants the credits.  Jim's home has the typical appliances including a big screen TV, plus a Jacuzzi.  He said that the neighbors sometimes comment something to the effect that the wind must be much stronger up above his house because his blades are spinning while there is no apparent wind on the ground.  (Note: the turbine is apparently not visible from the street, per someone who drove by.)  Jim said that one neighbor now has one of these installed on his home.

While these technologies, if real, are advanced from anything else available today, Jim said he believes in the K.I.S.S. (keep it simple, stupid) principle, and that they are not very complicated.

In the extracurricular realm, Jim is a pillar in his community, having won the National Jefferson Award in 2007 in D.C. for a non-profit he founded for disabled children.


Strange Phone Calls

Jim said he has tried to contact media, motor and government officials from local to national, but that so far the response has been essentially null -- at least directly.  Indirectly, he said he's started getting threatening phone calls saying things like "stop building your equipment", letting him know they know how many kids he has, etc.  One night, someone was trying to break into his garage, and he scared them off with his '45.

Since then, for security purposes, he's dismantled the fuelless motor technology; but the patented "wind turbine" is still powering his home. (He has not given us the patent number.)

Though he's wanted to have these things be a "Made in U.S.A." product, he's met mostly deaf ears in the United States; but says he has garnered a lot of interest in China, Japan, and South Korea.


About Boswell Distribution

Jim founded Boswell Distribution ten years ago around a fishing pole related invention he made.  He plans to establish other companies around these newer technologies.

No official website has yet been established.

Once we (PES Network and the New Energy Congress) verify that this technology is real, we plan on creating a product page to add to our store.  Feel free to sign up for the Boswell_Power newsletter that I established to keep you informed of developments on this technology as they come along.

March 12 update:
I spoke with Jim again this evening.  While he appreciates the attention this is getting because of our coverage, we have caught him at a busy time, compounded by some illnesses in the family.  He said he has some prior obligations he needs to take care of through the next month before he can focus in on moving this ahead at a more rapid pace.  He plans to forward on to me the validation material as it become available.
March 26 update:
Jim has not yet provided any form of validating documents, photos, videos, witness statements, testimonials, patent number; nor has he permitted any visits to an existing unit. He finally returned a phone call today and said he's working on a video.  He said he's weighing his options for how to roll this out.  I think at this point, unfortunately, that I've been had by another storyteller.
