Alternative Power & Energy

George Mitchell offers an alternative to our dependence on fossil fuels and other toxins.

We want to provide the world with clean economical power to all mankind. It is possible to offer a non-toxic, non-nuclear way to decrease the greenhouse effect and provide economical power/energy for anything or anyone that has a need for power to run their home, business, automobiles, computers and anything that requires electricity.

The unit I created is the transmission of energy via mechanical means.

leaders of this country, private citizens; the american public; senator john mccain, governor sarah palin, senator barack obama and senator joe biden,state representatives and senators,governors' and mayors of all the states,TV and radio stations nationwide and newspapers and magazines.

my name is george mitchell, the inventor. i have developed a new clean alternative energy that has been suppressed for 12 years. my question to the leaders and President Barack Obama and Vice President Senator Joe Biden; would you help launch this invention when elected to office, when citizens are struggling to afford high fuel costs for their vehicles, and are losing jobs, their homes and are barely able to make ends meet each month. To every American citizen wouldn't you like a new clean economical and affordable energy source for your automobile, your home and business, which will reduce your electric bill and your fuel costs. your electric bill and your fuel costs will be cut in half and even more. my invention is basically a magnetic gear train which runs multiple electric generators; unlike a wind-mill, that runs only one generator per mill and that requires wind or jet-streams that are not constant. solar only works when there is no obstruction of clouds. when the sun sets, you are dependant on batteries; and don't get me started on clean coal technology because it does not exist; when coal is being burned for energy purposes; it produces toxins and mercury that ends up getting into everyone's systems, especially womens' wombs and their unborn children which leads to birth defects and medical problems and expenses, that i'm sure no one wants. and even more important, nuclear energy plants are the last thing that this country needs, since the existing nuclear plants can't even find a place other than their own back yards to store this lethal poison. try to understand that nuclear waste; if the average citizen or person comes into contact with this deadly radiation and the facilities or plants that store this radioactive material, which cannot be disposed of safely. If the average Joe gets around this un-monitored radioactive material, your chances of getting leukemia and other deadly conditions and other health problems are to be certain; as certain as the sun rises and sets each day.

are our new leaders going to continue to turn a blind eye and deaf ear to a clean alternative source of energy or are they going to stand up for the people that voted for them, the AMERICAN PUBLIC. hundreds of thousands of jobs can be created by this invention to pay the mortgage, the car payment, for groceries and the daily expenses of life of every American. the revenue from sales to foreign countries on this invention would solve the lack of health care for millions of people who deal with these problems every day.

this invention could make our country the new Middle East of clean energy technology.

Albert gore, the clean environmentalist, was aware of this technology, personally and thru his uncle, Judge whit lafon of Jackson, Tennessee. at the time Mr. Gore was vice-president, yet he chose to do nothing. president bush was aware of this invention, when he was governor; yet he too has not responded in all these years.

i have a web site you may want to view for further information. that site is on the web site, please click onto the abc news video to check out the first small prototype built. i do applaud wind power and solar. my invention can be added to the mix of these energy processes. as a voter, it's totally up to you to e-mail or call the candidates and news people and ask these tough questions. it's your future on the line. please ask the questions. if you don't understand the concept, i will try to explain it with the most simple terms; if you go to the abc video, on my website , you will see little magnetic wheels turning in rotation. each of these wheels or turbines will create extra rotational energy to turn one or two generators per wheel. this will allow this design to charge batteries just like solar charges batteries except my invention will continuously charge batteries even after the SUN goes down my invention will continue charging batteries; you will not have to wait for the morning SUNRISE. it may sound as if i am repeating myself. if you are using solar or the SUN to charge your batteries through the daytime, my process will be an improvement over solar which only charges batteries during the daylight hours. this invention charges during the day and during the night. another good point; if you live in some states and your home or business is powered by my invention, since state law provides that if you produce more energy at your home or business than you use or have an excess of energy, you are re-imbursed for the excess energy, meaning you get a check each month for the extra electricity you produce or don't use at your home or business. In certain states (you can check with your representatives or possibly the internet; a state law allows a person to provide his own electricity and receive money back for any excess or extra electricity you produce or do not use at your home or business. our state of tennessee has such a law but you should check your own state.

Ex-welder invents a magnetic wheel

George Mitchell attaches magnets on seats of miniature wheels to produce electric power...

By Rochelle Davis - Jackson Sun

Enville TN - George Mitchell expected to go back to work as a mill-wright welder after back surgery in 1992.

But he never went back. He took the advice of his general practitioner, Reggie Henderson in Lexington, "He said, 'You've got a brain. Put it to use. Forget your back."

While Mitchell was recuperating he saw a show about a Japanese man who invented a cellular phone that used magnetic repulsion instead of a battery, which gave him an idea for a creation of his own.

"He said to me "I can make this so much better'" Mitchell's wife, Donna said.

The Mitchell's then purchased miniature wheels - much like Ferris wheels 0 used by parakeets and shower curtains.

He removed the magnets from the shower curtains and attached them to each end of the seats on the wheels, creating new magnetic repulsion wheels to produce clean electric power. Thus, his invention generates electrical power.

"I didn't understand it," said Donna Mitchell who helped her husband file the patent application for the invention "Men and women speak a different language. I didn't care that much about mechanics."

"I couldn't comprehend. All magnets were to me was that they stuck tot he refrigerator... It took many conversations and tapes (about magnetic repulsion)."

George Mitchell called the National Aeronautics and Space Administration to see if it would be interested in a new electrical system. He was invited to Huntsville, Ala., on May 22, 1997. NASA told him he invented a magnetic bearing and toy, which could be used as a learning tool in engineering.

"They wanted to see if all of them (wheels) were running together and how fast the revolutions per minute were," Mitchell said.

Mitchell's invention ran 1,100 rpms.

NASA also wanted to see his paperwork and designs on the invention. He refused, because he was afraid NASA would steal the idea.

Mitchell's patent is pending, but his invention is protected. His goal is to hook up his home with the generator and then go commercial. He said a state law allows a person to provide his own electricity and receive money back for any excess.

"We're so hooked on fossil fuels when we don't have to be," said Mitchell, who would like to make a car that does not pollute.

"We could feed our people and then some," Donna Mitchell added.

Mitchell's inspiration has been inventors, Albert Einstein Nicola Tesla. The deaths of his father, mother-in-law, two cats and a dog also inspired him, he said.

"I think the stress activated some chemical in the brain that innovated the invention," He said.

Drawn to Work

Enville man perseveres to expand his inventions and garner publicity

ENVILLE - The light finally came on.

It was a night last March - George Mitchell kicks himself for not marking down the date. After years of trying and spending, his magnetic device finally turned on the light he had wired to it on a kitchen table.

He woke up his wife, Donna, and brought her to the kitchen. They hugged.

Then, the magnets flew off.

He had hollowed out the rubber in lawnmower tires, glued the magnets inside, duct-taped over the wheel and attached it to a battery-powered motor. But as the wheels spun, some of the magnets broke through the tape and began to bullet through the kitchen.

One left an indention on the ceiling; another split Donna's hair and got glue in it.

"George," Donna told him, "no more in the house."

Now his machine - with a bigger motor and aluminum parts replacing the lawnmower wheels - is in the back of a wood-paneled station wagon parked outside his house near Enville, a small town split between Chester and McNairy counties. The machine can power on two car headlamps propped behind it within a few minutes.

Mitchell, an amateur inventor, sees the power his machine generates as a new, cleaner form of alternative energy, but he has faced setbacks and skepticism in the nearly decade and a half since his first homemade breakthrough.

Despite the troubles, he keeps working toward bigger plans and says he is hopeful that people - like the lights plugged into his machine - will eventually turn on to his inventions.

Sudden inspiration

Mitchell has no college degree or formal scientific training, though he says he has been known to watch science shows on television deep into the night.

A conversation with him about his inventions is equal parts wide-eyed profession of his passion for science and impassioned explanation of the patriotic philosophy that underpins his work.

Finding better forms of energy requires open-minded urgency, but he thinks Americans can do it, he says.

"We're the best when we get our backs up against the wall," Mitchell said. "Our creativity, our ideas, just come pouring out."

Now 53, he remembers playing with magnets when he was young, feeling the pull and repulsion they can generate with his hands. While attending junior high school in Jackson, he won a science fair for a mockup of an atom.

He eventually found his way into professional welding, but back problems stifled that career in the early 1990s.

His work as an inventor started as he coped with his injury and a spate of deaths in the mid-1990s. Within a short time, he lost his father, his mother-in-law - whom he describes as a dear friend - and a couple of pets.

A doctor had told Mitchell to find a way to take his mind off his injury, and he found it while watching a cable news report about a Japanese man who tried to use magnets to power cell phones.

A realization burst open in his mind.

Mitchell says the idea must have come from God, who he thinks felt bad for him and wanted to give him something worthwhile to work on.

"I thought about Ferris wheels, taking out the seats and replacing them with magnets," he said.

Mitchell hurried to the store and bought several shower curtains and small, neon-colored plastic wheels meant to be parakeet toys.

He cut out magnets meant to hold the shower curtains in place and attached them to the wheels, arranging them so that, when placed beside another wheel rigged as such, the magnets pushed against another magnet's opposing side.

He attached a hand crank to one of the wheels and turned it. When he did, the repulsion caused by the magnets made the other wheels turn. He re-purposed the motor of a card-dealing machine powered by two AA batteries to replace the hand crank.

His new machine, fine-tuned since its first success, is essentially a larger-scale version of his original design: A motor powered by a car battery spins an aluminum wheel that holds six square magnets - smooth, copper-colored and about the size and thickness of a candy-box chocolate - fastened along its outer edge.

The force of those magnets cause identical wheels placed on both sides of the motor-powered wheel to spin, powering generators that turn on the two headlamps.

Soon after finishing the first machine, Mitchell called NASA officials to ask them if they were interested in a new way of producing energy.


Mitchell has said he's been frustrated with federal officials ranging from former Vice President Al Gore to U.S. Sen. John McCain. He said he wrote to President Barack Obama's campaign a few times before he was elected president last year but has never heard back.

NASA officials invited him to demonstrate his first invention at the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala., but were skeptical of the workings and usefulness of his device, Mitchell said.

His work got media attention from as far away as California, but he has struggled since the 1990s getting support to expand his work, he said. He said he has applied for federal grants but has always been turned down.

It took a decade to make significant progress in the next phase of his work - to expand his invention so that it could power the Mitchells' house in Enville. What was needed to make his new machine was expensive, and local businesses seemed reluctant to work with him to make his parts.

"I'm like, 'Do I have some sort of virus or something?'" he said.

Ed Gibson is a Milledgeville machinist who eventually helped make aluminum wheels for Mitchell's new machine.

He said he thinks machinists have dealt with inventors in the past whose machines are unlikely to work. "I hate to take people's money and it turn out to be a flop," Gibson said.

When Mitchell first approached him, Gibson said he was skeptical of the execution of his device and reluctant to help. He said when Mitchell recently returned to him, he seemed to have the operation of his machine better charted out than he did before.

"That makes a lot of difference," Gibson said. "... (Potential danger) was one of the problems I had with it to begin (with). He was liable to kill somebody with it and they were likely to charge me with it."

When officials rejected his grant applications, Donna Mitchell said they told George he was trying to build something scientifically impossible - a perpetual motion machine.

Donna said that at times the stress he put himself through to make his machine operate made her hope he would give up.

"There's been a couple of times when it's been on his mind so much," said Donna, who is 57. "I never told him I wanted him to quit, but there were times when it was too stressful or too whatever to be thinking about."

She said that last year, after failing to get publicity and support for his project, George became extremely discouraged.

"He just put it away," she said. "Something was said about it - I don't know if I mentioned it or he mentioned it. We were discussing about how you're going to (have to) prove it if anyone was going to be interested in it. You were going to have to turn on the light."

Looking ahead

Finally, in March, George Mitchell got the light to come on - dangerous flying magnets and all.

Attention has still been hard to come by, but despite the setbacks, Mitchell foresees a world where energy produced by machines like his is common place. In explaining how his latest invention works, he talks about replacing a magnet on an energy machine being as common one day as a repairman working on a broken heat pump.

He still plans on building a machine that can power his house. He and a mechanic in Adamsville also have plans to build an electric car someday, Mitchell said.

Until then, he keeps tweaking his latest device, working deep into the night.

But not in the kitchen.

Innovator gets letter from White House

When George Mitchell was a child, his grandfather told him there were billions of atoms on the point of a needle. This statement alone got him hooked on science. He went on to win his 7th grade science fair and would later begin teaching himself about engineering.

For years Mitchell has worked on developing a renewable energy source the world has not yet seen — magnetic repulsion. While he doesn't set out to replace existing technology, he hopes his innovation can act as a supplement to make electricity more efficient and affordable.

"I call this 'stupid simple technology,'" he said. "Some people overthink things. I'm not going to give up until I see this on the market filling the void of clean electricity."

When President Barack Obama was first elected, Mitchell reached out with a letter about the energy crisis and shared some of his ideas. He didn't receive a response until he sent a second letter several months ago about the coal industry.

One December day, Mitchell found a response in his mailbox in Enville. The president shared about progress America is making in energy production and thanked Mitchell for his dedication to the matter.

"This is the way forward: good jobs, cheaper and cleaner energy, and a secure future for our kids," Obama wrote. "We should increase responsible natural gas production that boosts our businesses and keeps costs down for families. And we should keep investing in American technologies that grow our economy while protecting our planet for generations to come."

The letter mentioned wind, solar, nuclear and biofuel technologies as alternative energy sources. But because of its safety, practicality and scalability, Mitchell believes his innovation is an even better answer to clean renewable energy. Magnetic repulsion could put an end to the country's dependence on fossil fuels, he said.

Nuclear power plants across the country present a radiation danger, Mitchell said, while windmills and solar panels take up valuable cropland and are only efficient some of the time.

"Magnets work 24/7, 365 days a year," Mitchell said. "You could drop a unit in the middle of a jungle with no power, and there's no need for wind or sunlight. It doesn't matter where you live — this could cut your bill by 40 percent."

While he hopes to one day launch the technology nationwide, Mitchell dreams of sending it around the world to provide efficient electricity in underdeveloped communities like Haiti and Nigeria.

Mitchell said he sees God as the engineer in his work, and he is just the tool that brings it all together.

"A lot of this I don't understand, but I think the big man upstairs has a lot that we aren't supposed to understand," Mitchell said. "You just have to go on faith and hope."

In 1997, Mitchell said he was inspired to start experimenting with magnets. He has collaborated with and presented theoretical prototypes to NASA, the Department of Energy and the Department of Defense, among other groups. Ever since, he has worked to develop the technology from his backyard workshop in McNairy County.

Mitchell said from the moment he started, he knew the work would not be easy, and he would not see results overnight. Patience has been essential throughout the process, but he is excited to see his work impact lives in the future.

"We have all the talent we need in this country," Mitchell said. "Energy companies must be open-minded to trying new sources."
