Earth 4 Energy- Has anyone tried this?
 
This seems like it would be a great way to supply cheap power. I was thinking of maybe trying it out so I could add extra solar pannels. It also explains how to build a wind turbine.

Has anyone tried this yet?

I agree imagine. I just went to the site. This guy is a fake and a fraud.

Umm, a quote from his website:

Quote:

The solar panels and wind generators that my members created look amazing!
I seriously doubt that his members created any solar panels... making a solar panel, unless it is for hot water generation, is a high-tech enterprise, and not something a home user is going to be able to do. Most people aren't going to be capable or willing to make their own wind generator. At the least, he's not being truthful in that statement...

Wow, pretty sure of yourself. How can you call someone a fraud, when YOU are making claims based on assumption?

What do you guys mean by not being able to exit the site? I'm having no trouble.

I'm not sure of the product, but assume you wouldn't actually be building solar cells. I was thinking there's probably a way to buy wholesale solar cells, then you build your own panel.

Also, I don't see why it would be that difficult to build a wind turbine given you had access to the parts.

Who knows? It might work, it might not. I'll just have to research more!

Most legitimate sites don't have a popup that you have to click on in order to leave the website or close it. Generally, that's a feature of less than legitimate websites.

I don't seem to have that problem, maybe my pop-up blocker looks after it.

Ref: The UnSponsored Link: Consumer Reports WebWatch's Weblog: Earth4Energy.com Falls Short of WebWatch Guidelines

Another big indication is the number of domains that promote to the site and including a prominently named "RipOff" that glowing discusses the site that the domain indicates.

My verdict - scam to the highest degree (please do read the link above as well as this one: http://nlcpr.com/Deceptions6.php....

Good work jody. This guy is busted.
