Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, July 15, 2009 9A Inventor seeks alternative energy solutions Sam Williams Staff Writer Tired of high gasoline and energy prices, a Janesville man wants to discover ways to be self-sufficient. Aldo Sella Sr., a 1950 grad- uate of Lassen High School, admits he wasn't a very good student in his academic classes, but always did well in classes such as auto shop. He inherited good genetics from his ancestors when it comes to mechanical ability, and when a problem pre- sents itself he just "sees" the answer. Sella took matters into his own hands a few years ago and built an electric car he claims performs better than ones under development in Detroit. He even built his own unique variation of a kind of windmill, called a Savonius rotor, that he believes may be able to generate seven kilowatts of power. Sella has a nondisclosure agreement with Plumas Sierra Rural Electric Cooperative regard- ing his invention. Sella's interest in mechan- ical things took off during his time in the Navy, where he "developed the ability to build the different things we needed." While Sella attributes his ability primarily to his genet- ics-his family tree includes "doctors, lawyers, priests and bandits"--he developed his skill out of necessity when gas prices in Susanville rose above $4 a gallon. "Susanville has the high- est-priced gas in the United States," Sella said. He knows a secret place in Reno where gas sells for nearly $1 less per gallon than on Main Street and claims many Janesville residents drive to Nevada and buy their gas there. One day a few years ago, Sella decided he'd had enough. "In late 2005, when the price of gas and other bio-fu- els rose, I researched hydro- gen and other fuels that were the least polluting and could be used," Sella said. "I decid- ed the best way to solve the world's transportation needs was with electric vehicles." As Sella researched the is- sue, he came upon a how-to book that described convert- ing a gas-powered vehicle in- to an electric-powered one. He spent about $4,500 con- verting a 1973 Ford Courier into an electric vehicle. Most of the parts and mate- rials Sella used were avail- able commercially, but true to his heritage and charac- ter, Sella insisted on "doing it my way." One of his inventions in- cluded in the converted Ford is a redesigned alternative clutch assembly--an innova- tion that Sella said saved about 150 pounds of vehicle weight and allowed him to install more batteries in the We're in Full Bloom !

"I am getting a 40- to 50- mile range with a small gen- erator I built to charge the vehicle," Sella said. "I dan go 50 miles per hour all day in most cases. "The cost of converting a vehicle depends upon how much you pay for a vehicle and the parts you use to con- vert it. I also have ideas on converting trucks or vans to transport goods and supplies that would be economical to operate." Sella's ideas have even been presented to Congress when the Janesville inventor represented the Gold State Power Cooperative. Vertical windmills While Sella has made his own personal modifications to the Savonius rotor, modi- fications he hopes will make it operate more efficiently, he said the idea of vertical windmills is not new. His friend Joe Champion has operated a couple of the unusual windmills to supply compressed air at his saw shop in Westwood for about 50 years. He said American service- men and Japanese citizens used the design to generate power for radios and other small appliances when he was stationed there during the mid-1950s. Many supplies came to the troops in 55-gallon drums that were cut in half, welded together, mounted on a pole and turned into wind-power generators. Conventional wisdom sug- gests traditional horizontal windmills--like the ones seen at nearly every farm- house in America--may be more effective in generating electricity. But that may not hold true with more re- search. Sella said his project could generate power even when the wind speed is as low as five mph. Some sources report verti- cal windmills also take ad- vantage of wind gusts, which often flow in a different di- rection than the prevailing wind, because they don't have to reposition them- selves the way a traditional windmill does. SeUa's windmill is mount- ed on the roof of an old trav- el trailer. The wind spins the windmill that is attached to an alternator that generates electrical current. Eighteen six-volt golf cart batteries collect the energy and save it to be used when needed. Sella expects when he fin- ishes with his system it will generate about seven kilo- : watts of power--enough to supply most of the electrical power for the average Amer- i ican household.
