About: You may recognize Dan and Denise Rojas from their appearances in various made for tv movies and national commercials. As the hosts of Green Power Science, they share Fresnel lens and alternative energy ideas...


This video shows the power of permanent Magnet motors from DC used in reverse as a generator. The motor is geared so it spins a very high RPMs providing a usable DC current.
