13). Question: How long is the DynoRotor been designed to last for?
Answer: DynoRotor is designing our products to last as long as possible. The mean time between failure for all the parts in the system is a being designed to 15 to 20 years (this is not to say that the product will not fail for 20 years). DynoRotor intends to offer a one year limited warranty on all our products. DynoRotor also suggests that the consumer purchases a service contract or extended warranty.
14). Question: What are the Features and Benefits of the DynoRotor?
Answer: DynoRotor operates (generates electricity) from the motion of the waves. DynoRotor’s consume no fuel, generate no emissions during operation, have low ecological impact, and can be used to replace technologies that generate CO2 and other greenhouse gases and pollutants. The 500 watt unit or cluster are meant to be deployed as standalone units.
The DynoRotor is simple to operate, making DynoRotor a leading-edge technology for regions with little infrastructure or technological skill. They are also easy to maintain. DynoRotor's vast early market arena includes coastal communities, remote ocean islands in developing countries. Typically, in such cases, electricity is unavailable due to the cost of supplying fuel to remote areas or is very expensive. Most of the world outside North America if they are on diesel power are paying $0.75+ per kWh or more for electricity.
15). Question: Will DynoRotor harm fish and marine life?
Answer: The answer is NO.
16). Question: What are the advantages of a 500 watt wave donut over the competition?
DynoRotor: SMALL SCALE FOCUS ONLY (under 10kW)
• Address’s a larger untapped market
• No Grid or Micro-Grid Only
• No Permits required
• Low capital costs
• Simple and easy installation
• Installation in hours
• Non corrosive encasement

18). Question: Does DynoRotor compete with Wind and Solar?
Answer: The answer is NO, DynoRotor does not compete against Wind and Solar technologies. Because Wind and Solar typically do not operate 24 hours a day x 7 days a week, we feel that DynoRotor may be a better solution in some areas around the world. We feel DynoRotor complements Wind and Solar and should be part of the overall solution when and where possible. An ideal solution will incorporate Solar, Wind, Waterotor and battery backup solution.
19). Question: What is DynoRotor's rated power outputs and frequency?
Answer: Everything depends on the on-shore inverter that is selected with the DynoRotor. DynoRotor will offer inverters for 120 to 240 VAC (50 or 60Hz) and/or DC inverters that can handle 12, 24, 48 Volt DC configurations. DynoRotor’s initial product offering will be 500 watts. 120-240 VAC 50 or 60Hz. DynoRotor’s may be combined with Battery Backup Power, Solar and Wind Power products.
20). Question: What will a DynoRotor's HG Wave Energy Donut power?
Answer: The 500 watt DynoRotor can easily power one or two houses in the developing world. The DynoRotor cluster array (of 3 x 4) or 6,000 watts can power several houses in a developing world village. A DynoRotor can be used to refrigerate the catch of the day or medicines. Of course it can also power lights, fans, cell communications and phones and most computer related equipment.
21). Question: How does DynoRotor compete against Gasoline or Diesel Generators?
Answer: The 500 watt DynoRotor will generate power at a cost under 15 cents per kWh (depending on location). A gasoline generator will cost around 80 cents per kWh to run.
22). Question: How much will a 500 watt DynoRotor Wave Energy Donut produce in a year?
Answer: The 500 watt DynoRotor Wave Energy Donut will produce are 3,723 kWh per year.
23). Question: What is the Worldwide average power Consumption?
Answer: It is important to note that the average power consumption in the world is around 382 watts of power or 3,353 kW-hours per year per household. (according to the World Energy Council)
The 500 watt DynoRotor produces around 3,723kWh per year (over the world average of 3,353 kW-hours per year of use. The 1,000 watt DynoRotor produces around 7,446 kWh per year, higher then most country requirements except the Middle-East and North America) which are energy hogs because of cooling and heating
