Off-Grid Energy: Designing a Robust System with Rhodes Carter of Iron Edison Battery

Off-Grid Energy: Designing a Robust System with Rhodes Carter of Iron Edison Battery

Special guest Rhodes Carter of Iron Edison Battery joins the Ice Age Farmer podcast to discuss energy security and how to design a resilient, flexible off-grid energy system that will meet our needs — even in extreme temperatures. Rhodes takes through system design from generation to storage. I also noted that Iron Edison’s Nickel-Iron batteries can be more fully discharged without damage, perform even in freezing temps, and simply last longer, requiring less maintenance than standard lead-acid batteries…that’s why I reached out to them!

Iron Edison has extended a 5% DISCOUNT to IAF listeners — just mention the podcast when you call. You can also call just to talk through a project; IE has a staff of experienced solar designers who love nothing more than to speak to folks about their project and needs, and help translate that into what system/components would be best.

1. Icebreaker: puerto rico coverage — systems break down
100% agriculture — no one talking about
grid down / gas distribution / logistics “reboot”

2. Daily Steps over video iceland’s aurora:

Shawn: overcame anxiety after realization, got some non-gmo seeds, started planting away!
Shaun: doing experiments with DC voltage applied to seeds
James Coleman: lives in Canada, and is now a criminal for listening to this Podcast, and for questioning the Global Warming narrative
“Galileo & Copernicus were thrown into jail for saying the Earth revolved around the Sun.”
Phi: has written letters to local papers, trying to get climate truth in Opinion Piece — awesome work Phi
k-Bird: was inspired by the video of vertical towers i posted to try his hand, thrilled to hear
I: spent 90min today on the two spirulina tanks, which is too much. in these times, need systems that will run themselves.
looking/feeling more and more like the self-sufficient homestead of the future is going to look more like an acre and a goat, than battlestar galactica, but hope springs eternal that tech will help soften our landing.

4. HAM Radio

Radio is powerful. The ability to communicate independently is desirable.

I have and recommend a handheld Baofeng; they are programmable so that you can set the frequencies of local repeaters, and have these handy in an emergency/grid-down situation.

Also mentioned: coverage of HAM operators saving lives in Puerto Rico.

5. Book of the Day: Encyclopedia of Country Living
This is a really great guide, tips for self-sufficient homestead:

6. Item of the Day: Baofeng BF-F8HP handheld ham radio

Let’s go ahead and make the recommendation of a handheld radio official. Being able to communicate without grid power/internet is important, and worth $60:

Our Grid is Teetering on the Edge; Volcanoes; Cholera; Preserving; Preparedness

We are seeing major systems (airlines, Playstation) going down at regular intervals based on solar activity. We have been warned that our power grid is not prepared for what’s going on. The scripting is already there — even the pre-suggestion that North Korea was responsible, so that the NWO agenda can march on.

Interview with Diamond from Oppenheimer Ranch Project: https://youtu.be/TOIEfZ51QzI

Ep 14: Interview: ‘Diamond’ of Oppenheimer Ranch Project on Grand Solar Minimum Solutions

IAF Podcast #14, aired September 24, 2017:

There are plenty of great researchers talking about the Grand Solar Minimum and its effects — the focus here at IAF is on SOLUTIONS: Helping to build self-sufficiency and food sovereignty to thrive in the challenging times ahead.

In this interview, we speak with Diamond from the Oppenheimer Ranch Project, who is already an Ice Age Farmer, putting in practice permaculture philosophies in high alpine environment with challenging growing season!

Diamond has been working in this direction for years, and I am thrilled to have him on the show to share some of his knowledge.

Due to a technical issue, the show was interrupted early, but we both had so much fun that we agreed to make this the first of a series. Stay tuned.

We do speak to:

* What has worked for him, and what hasn’t
* Animals and considerations for how they will fare in the coming colder seasons
* Whether indoor growing makes sense
* Permaculture concepts applied to both growing and living spaces
* Keeping various types of greenhouses running at different points in the season
