Although most of the human race depends on coal and other finite resources to help power our cities, homes and day-to-day activities, there are ways to generate energy without having to tap into the Earth’s finite resources or take new land. Through the use of a patented technology from HeliosAltas, it is now possible to tap into unused resources and existing infrastructures to generate zero emission power. Do you know what that might mean for people around the globe? It means almost anyone could have access to dependable, renewable energy without have to buy a generator, pay to be connected to the nearest power lines, install solar panels or put up a wind turbine.

Now, solar and wind are two of the most well-known renewable energy resources continuing to garner acceptance around the globe. The main problem presented by these two green energy sources is the need for new land on which to place solar panels or wind turbines and the power is intermittent. Even wave or tidal power and other types of hydroelectric power plants can have a harmful impact on the surrounding environment.

With the HeliosAltas PowerBall Technology, low cost, micro and macro scale zero emission power projects have been made possible around the globe. PowerBall water wheels can be placed along the path of an existing canal, or along a man-made or natural water flows, to generate power.

A PowerBall can operate in as little as two inches of moving water to generate a consistent stream of energy. Unlike other hydroelectric type devices that often require full submersion, or must be placed near the bottom of a river or stream, our device sits quietly on the water’s surface. This minimizes the risk of blockage from debris, causes less disruption to the natural environment and allows for a more steady flow of energy, regardless of the level of water found in the canal. In addition, the cost of maintenance is very low and the zero emission power generated from this type of energy source has been shown to be extremely reliable. Once installed, a PowerBall water wheel can run 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This makes the HeliosAltas PowerBall Technology one of the greenest, least expensive and most highly-efficient types of hydro-electric or renewable energy sources available today.

Even though the company is still in its formative years, PowerBall projects are being planned in Mexico and negotiations are underway in other countries, as well as here in the U.S. This is not to say there won’t be obstacles the company will have to overcome, but the fact the company is focused on using existing infrastructures to generate zero emission power makes this hydro-electric option extremely enticing to many agricultural communities and other industries, large and small.
