It will be almost
impossible to provide all the people with food, water, and a living
standard acceptable for human dignity unless an energy source that
every country can generate cost efficiently and effectively as the
world’s developing countries with rates of natural increase continue
to struggle because of the growth of population.
Generation is the scheme of rainwater channels on the roof of
buildings for carrying away water to turbines coupled to a generator
that will convert the falling or running water into electricity with
the water eventually flowing to tankers to be stockpiled and vacuum
pumped back to the roof during non rainy days, instead of pipes
carrying water to the sewage, with the excess stockpiled rainwater to
be used to irrigate plants and gardens.
with the appropriate architectural engineering design, rooftop
hydroelectric power will save the world from the potential of
devastation or at least reduce human suffering.
generation, which can be designed with a water cycle continuous loop,
is a perpetual energy source that will meet the future of unlimited
demands even with overpopulated developing countries in the billions.
hydroelectricity depends on large natural water storage. Reservoirs
upstream of dams or rivers flowing down from mountain tops where the
water flow can be controlled to have constant water level to assure
power provided for a populated community.
power generation from rooftops of buildings the Philippines, a country
with an average rainfall of more than 80 inches or more than 2000 mm
of rain each year, can have a perpetual energy source simply by
designing a Rooftop Hydroelectric Power Generator emplaced in
structures of high rises, schools, and homes providing the possibility
of electricity in all the provinces with (barangays) villages of
people currently living without power.
buildings, depending on the square area of the rooftops and
gravitational flow of the rainwater, will be classified as small to
mini or micro hydro in capacity of providing the energy.
An industrial rooftop
hydroelectric power generation to provide electricity in metropolises,
entire provinces, or new developments that can have the infrastructure
of poles and wires will provide electricity in a world worried about
Climate Change and Global Warming destruction with no worries of
accidental flooding associated with existing hydroelectric power
plants, but the idea of individual buildings can provided wireless
electricity in a planned community and independent from the problems
linked with power plants like during typhoon seasons of uprooted poles
and dislodged wires.
For the duration of
dry seasons or non rainy days, vacuumed pumped to the rooftop from
stockpiled rainwater in tankers on ground level can produce
electricity even during high peak demands instead of a loop, but
during tropical storms electricity will be naturally created from
raindrops and gravity for an energy source provided by Mother Nature,
every rainy day perpetually.
If President Gloria
Macapagal-Arroyo needs a suggestion on how to spend the $310 million
worth of funds for “green projects”, how about ROOFTOP HYDROELECTRIC
POWER GENERATORS with the turbines for buildings in the poor provinces
with barangay elementary and national high schools like in Gubat.
