We apparently live on something classified by the feds as a "Wild and Scenic River". Moving a rock in the river can get you fined (not joking). When our local county government repaired the road that washed out they needed permits from 6 state and federal agencies just to do work near the river. The only reason it got done was our state governor declared the area a disaster zone thus allowing us to bypass the red tape until after work was completed. That was in 2011 and they are still fighting over paperwork. The river took out over 1/4 mile of roadway and I am still amazed they got it back as quickly as they did. However, I think we have strayed from Pentax on TV

No wind....Cloudy Days....??? I would invest in a old China diesel.....Blub...blub...blub...blub....blub.....1 gallon of diesel a day or less depending on use !
I ran mine for 3 hrs a day on less than a third of a gallon. Its Rpm is very low with a huge flywheel. Modern generators run at 3500+ Rpm and guzzle gas or diesel.
China diesel is the only way to go if no wind or Solar.
I used to be a regular on ..... otherpower.com.....Very interesting site. Check out Hugh Piggots wind machines.
Be sure to take pictures with your Pentax.....lol.
