    What do you think is the best way to gain power? Getting energy through water, sun, wind? I think the best way is using solar panels, if you live in a house. For bigger are wind turbines.

    When we go to the province, I usually see a big anemometer is connected to a water tank. My father said that the propeller rotates when hit by the wind and in effect moves the turbine-like gadget below that fetches water. In other words, that particular farm gets water from underground without an electric pump. Now, if that propeller will be attached to a dynamo then the wind power can produce electricity. I guess that is the best way to create power when in the wilderness. But I understand that it's not that simple for it may need a battery to store the electricity that is created by the dynamo.

    I think all three have their merits if you have the right conditions. Our header stream is not constant enough for hydro electricity, wind here in the forest is also not good for driving a windmill. Sun we have, so we use solar power.
