OCCUPY FLINT NEEDS YOUR HELP!
We are from the Command Center of Occupy Flint, Second and MLKing Downtown Flint West of the Durant Hotel. In order to design, build operate a more sustainable long term demonstration support facility which uses maximum efficiency of our resources, including investments and donations… we need some things of a utility nature. Knowing this, we have proposed to construct is Two-Phase which is explained below.
Phase 1 – For heat, we will shift away from propane as a cooking/heating fuel to a reliable wood stove/water-heater system for cooking and domestic hot water and space heating using radiant hydronics. This is solar water heating supplemented by cord-wood fuel distributed from insulated from ground-double bubble) for tents. We would have a heated patio under the big-top which includes insulated walls of straw bales. The ceiling would be also insulated from double-bubble.
Phase 2- For electricity, we have 420 watts of PV Panels. “J” personally has 370 more watts and a 48 Volt 720 Watt Wind Generator. We have 2 180 amp/hr batteries, though we need a more robust and reliable power supply for communications, lighting and operations electronics.
We have big solar panels, charge control, wiring, 3 4×12 aluminum and glass solar water heaters, wood stoves, wind generator, tower, and 12 volt inverters.
These are things we need;
(8) New golf-cart batteries
(1) 600 watt sine-wave inverter, heavy-duty 48 Volt
(3) PV Pumps, Ivan Labs, el sid 2-5w, 1-10w 24 Volt
(1) Art Tech solar thermal control, 24 or 48 Volt.
150-200ft soft copper tubing ½ inch
1000ft pex tubing and assorted fittings
(2) 6-8ft x 125ft rolls of foil double-bubble insulation
Patio pavers, new or used
An RV drain water tank for grey water sink only
(2-4) 48-50gal food barrels. Used are $20.00 each.
(1-2) Voltage Converters (Solar Converters Inc.) 48 Volt to adjustable output amp, 2-10 amp and 48 Volt to 24 Volt 10 amp
(150-200) Straw bales, workshops (educational purposes) and donor recognition to be held as a ceremony.
