80+ years ago Nikola Tesla informed the energy industry how to easily produce more energy by discharging a capacitor suddenly, through a short circuit (a spark gap). “The discharge of a condenser affords us a means of obtaining frequencies far higher than are obtainable mechanically.” Nikola Tesla during 1891 New York lecture
“When it (a condenser / capacitor) was charged full, I discharged it suddenly, through a short circuit which gave me a very rapid rate of oscillation. Let us suppose that I had stored in the condenser 10 watts. Then, for such a wave there is a flux of energy of (4 x 104)2, and this is multiplied by the frequency of 100,000. You see, it may go into thousands or millions of horsepower.”
How much horsepower was obtained by using an antenna?
“Usually something like 50 horsepower, and I would get, I should say, approximately 30 horsepower in the antenna; that is, I would get 30 horsepower in the oscillating circuit.” Nikola Tesla
30 horsepower = 22.371 kilowatts
In all of Thomas Moray & Nikola Tesla’s high energy harnessing patented devices, not one was a solar panel. All were antennas. Moray & Tesla used either an insulated metal plate or a 6 foot rod or a long wire antenna & a spark gap to harness kWs of energy. More energy than any solar panel manufactured today.
In patent US685958A – Method of utilizing radiant energy Nikola Tesla used an antenna that was made using a single sheet of highly polished and insulated metal plate –
an insulated conducting body connected to one of the terminals of a condenser, while the other terminal of the same is made by independent means to receive or to carry away electricity, a current iiows into the condenser so long as the insulated body is’ exposed to the rays, and under the conditions hereinafter specied au indefinite accumulation of electrical energy in the condenser takes place. This energy after a suitable timeinterval, during which the rays are allowed to act, may manifest itself in a powerful discharge, which may be utilized for the operation or control of mechanical or elecitrical devices or rendered useful in many other ways.In applying my discovery I provide a condenser, preferably ofconsiderable electrostatic capacity, and connect one of its terminals to an insulated metal plate or other conducting body exposed to the rays -or streams of radiant matter…
A simple way of supplying positive or negative electricity to the (condenser / capacitor) terminal is to connect the same either to an insulated conductor, supported at some height in the atmosphere, or to a grounded conductor, the former, as is well known, furnishing positive and the latter negative electricity. As the rays or supposed streams of matter generally convey a positive charge to the first condenser-terminal, which is connected to the plate or conductor above mentioned, I usually connect the second terminal of the condenser to the ground, this being the most convenient way of obtainin negative electricity, dispensing with the necessity of providing au artificial source.
