EV Station

1.    Is the eRET retrofittable to existing solar installations?
Yes. The eRET can work with any solar panel. The eRET uses the voltage and current output to generate power.

2.    What is the electrical efficiency of the eRET?
Based on electrical input-output analysis, the eRET has been tested at 98.4% efficiency.

3.   How does the eRET work?

The standard solar panel collects an enormous quantity of charge from the energizing of ions (from the photons arriving from the Sun) situated within the solar cell. This is due to a substantial “rain” of photons impacting on the solar panel. The eRET collects that charge and focuses the charge from the panel to a very small area of high energy. This ratio is over 50,000. A high energy current results from the concentration of charge.
4.   Why is an inverter not needed?

An inverter is a device that converts direct current to alternating current and vice versa. All solar installations need an inverter to convert direct electricity from the output of a solar panel to alternating current that can be used by electrical devices commonly employed today. The capital cost of the inverter constitutes a significant fraction of the cost of a solar installation. The eRET eliminates the need for an inverter since AC and DC can be produced within the module. By altering the flow of electrons, alternating current can be generated.

5.   The eRET can produce very high powers (>10 kw). How can one produce that much power using only a 200 watt solar panel?
Electric circuits have the unique feature to possess an independent current and voltage source. Since electric current is a sequence of elementary charges (electrons), the incipient electrons can, in turn, result in the generation of high energy electric currents. The energy reservoir of a solar panel which resides in the p-n junction of a solar cell, can be accessed quickly without depletion since the rate of photon arrival (from the Sun) and energizing the intrinsic electrons is faster than the emission of electrons from the eRET. For example, energetically, an electron at a potential of 20,000 volts only contains about 3.2 X 10-15 joules of energy (a millionth of a billionth of a joule of energy). A typical solar panel can process about 200 joules/second. Accessing small quantities of energy at fast rates is one of the hallmark characteristics of the eRET. High powers are attained by quickly energizing a coherent sequence of charges constituting an electric current.

6.    How can the eRET produce hydrogen and electrical power simultaneously?
Quantum mechanics states the electron can be considered both a particle and a wave. This was theorized by the great physicists Louis de Broglie and Albert Einstein. Two other physicists, Clinton Davisson and Lester Germer, at Bell Telephone Laboratories in 1927, proved the hypothesis set forth above.
    The eRET uses the above fact to generate an electron (as a particle) for the purpose of generating electrical power and coherent radiation (as a wave) as a result of its transit within the device. The waves produced as a result of the acceleration of the electron results in waves at certain specific frequencies, whereby the oxygen-hydrogen bond absorbs the radiation efficiently, thereby breaking the bond. Using our proprietary membrane, we are able to separate the products of the water dissociation process into separate pure streams of hydrogen and oxygen.

7.   How big is the eRET?

The eRET has a very small footprint. 
8.   Why is the eRET a “point-of-use” generator?

Traditionally, energy resources were located far away from the conversion facilities (power plants) and the ultimate users of electrical power (transmission grid). In order to economically distribute the energy for electric power, it was important to construct and build centralized power plants and a transmission grid to deliver it. The electrical power infrastructure for enabling this scenario is extremely expensive. There are at least 1.5 billion people on the planet that use expensive kerosene and candles for lighting purposes. The eRET will be able to provide a cheaper electrical alternative to people who do not have access to electricity. One overriding barrier is the cost of the electrical infrastructure that needs to be established. The eRET allows the direct generation of electricity at the consumer site without the need for any electrical infrastructure. This is possible because the means of generating power is all around us; namely, the Sun and water.
