Cooling System - Technical Info Fee Arrangement
Considering that the main presentation page contains a lot of
somewhat technical information, a Technical Packet might seem
strange, or frightening! But it contains lots of examples,
and is really no harder to follow than our main page is, and it
sometimes might even be easier (because of the examples to follow)!
We are a very unusual company! We hope you noticed that we have
chosen to GIVE AWAY the entire technology for our sub-system that
is able to provide Free Air-Conditioning for nearly any home or
building. In the first eleven years that that page has been on the
Internet, it is our understanding that at least 19,500 people
have installed such systems. If each are now saving $1,000 or more
on their summer electric bills, that would mean that collectively,
they are saving quite a bit each summer, many millions of dollars,
and that will continue forever!
In the event that you actually choose to participate in our
Technical Packet project, we figure you might like knowing that
you would be joining a great crowd of people! At least 9,300 people
have requested the TP in the first eleven years (2001-2012), and
as long as we can trust that they each actually GAVE the $250 for
some good causes, that means that they have already given an
amazing collective $2,300,000 so far! A lot of people see that and
the fact that I have INTENTIONALLY CHOSEN to not make a dime out of this,
and concluded that I must be the worst businessperson on Earth.
That might be true, but I get great happiness out of how I choose
to do this, and I think that if I was 'getting a cut of every
Donation' I doubt if the feeling would be as amazing! The country
of Bhutan might have something, of OFFICIALLY having citizens strive
for HAPPINESS and not MATERIALISM and MONEY! I am just one person,
and I cannot 'change the world' but I can make the best effort I can
toward that end!
This is said in preparation for the following:
This is how the $250 Technical Info fee would be paid, DIRECTLY TO that
For the Technical Information Packet
There are several possibilities.
For Direct Technical Assistance
- Our favorite is when people give the $250 cash directly to
some SMALL local Charity organization, with Soup Kitchens, Homeless
Shelters and Food Banks being our real favorites! We see that as most
desirable because such organizations NEVER have enough money to do what
they do, and a surprise windfall of $250 to them can make an enormous
difference! In addition, we believe that in most cases, they are
likely to use all $250 for worthy purposes. (In contrast, we
worry about the fact that many Executives of the giant NGOs,
such as the Red Cross, are each paid many million dollars each
year in salary, and we sort of wonder where the $250 might go
in such organizations! I guess we see the $250 as likely being
important in the one situation and possibly nearly irrelevant in
the other. Since we are doing this in this way, we like the idea
that it might be important at the other end!) We apologize for
our goofy attitudes toward giant NGOs, which is due to some
experiences we have had where we think giant NGO corporations'
employees seem to not actually CARE except regarding making sure
of their own paychecks. We tend to be more confident that
employees of LITTLE Charities seem to actually CARE a lot more!
(But we still accept when people give the $250 to ANY Charitable
organization.) We should also explain why we have such a thing
regarding ANONYMOUS. Wealthier people seem to think in terms
of GETTING SOMETHING FOR THEMSELVES, such as a Tax Deduction, where
we are trying to inspire people to simply GIVE the $250 without
expecting to GET anything in return (except for the valuable
information in the Technical Packet. Many of us seem to have
forgotten how to do that, and we are trying to nudge people
to remember how!)
- If you regularly attend a Church, Synagogue or Mosque, then you could
make out a $250 Cashier's Check TO THAT INSTITUTION, or put $250
cash in an envelope. Such a check would show "Anonymous"
as the source, and not you. It would also be IN ADDITION TO any
normal Titheing or Donations you gave. You would then either mail it to the
deserving institution, or possibly drop the envelope with the cash
in their mailbox or with a Secretary in their Office.
(You could also benefit a Charity instead, as indicated below.)
- If you DO NOT regularly attend a Church, Synagogue or Mosque, then you
could make out the $250 Cashier's Check or leave the envelope with the
$250 cash, at any credible Charity Organization which YOU choose.
Such a check would show "anonymous" as the source.
- If this system is for a commercial building, any commercial application,
from an architect, designer, contractor, or other individual or
company which is involved regularly in
the industry, we would require a Notarized statement that the usage
of the Version designs and system would only be used for that single
application, and a suitable higher fee would be arranged. Depending
on the details of the application, we may still choose to have it
given to some worthy cause, but in that case we would likely
require some method of confirmation that the Gift was made,
which is not required for the above situations. In general, we
hope that we can trust people when they say they will give to
a worthy cause! Some businesses seem less ethical in that regard.
In addition, if such a business intends or expects to use our
technology for additional applications, a formal contract for such
use would be negotiated, with suitable fees involved.
Regarding these business usages of our technology, the comments
above should suggest that we are a very fair company and would
never over-charge anyone. The modern world forces us to have to try
to protect our interests in these ways. We have invested massive time,
effort and expense in designing and developing the technologies,
and it is only fair that people pay for suitable compensation for usage
of them, whether that is by our choice of having those funds go to
some worthy cause or if it was to actually come to us.
We are pretty convinced that nearly everyone could do the math
just from our Technical Packet mentioned above. Therefore, we choose to
believe that very few people should ever need any actual additional
Engineering from us. In the event that an application is extremely
unusual, there might be situations where we might actually need to
do custom Engineering, but the rates we would then need to charge
would be comparable to what any good local Engineering firm would
charge (a significant amount!). For this reason, we suspect that
only very large scale applications, like gymnasiums, office
buildings, museums, etc, are likely to actually need our personal
expertise regarding such Engineering. And even in most of such
situations, we feel that the web-site information and the Technical
Packet can provide all the information that a local Engineering
form would need to do the same work.
One way or another, we are trying to do a "good deed"
Actually, SEVERAL good deeds! Homeowners like the fact that their
annual summer electric bills from A/C are eliminated. The GIVER
of the $250 generally feels really good about having done something
nice. The Soup Kitchen or Homeless Shelter should have a bright
day for having received that surprise gift. And the clients
of such Soup Kitchens or Homeless Shelters might get better food
for a few days! Well, and finally, it makes US feel good for
having been a tiny part of such generosity!
After many years, we have added another idea to this web-page!
We see value in your ADDING a typed sheet of paper along with
the $250 cash which you are donating. This sheet might explain
a little clearer just what the idea is behind the 'surprise gift'
that the Church or Charity was receiving from you. The owners of
that Charity or Church might have thought that THEY were just
to get the extra money to spend (personally)! Your note would
explain to them that you really intended the money you are donating
to be given to 'hungry little kids' or 'homeless men'.
See the point? To start with they might help THREE people with the
money you provided. But imagine if they would instead buy CRATES
of cans of green beans or spaghetti? They might be able to buy
TWO HUNDRED CANS (at $1.25 each) with the money you provided, so that
SEVEN KIDS who do not eat very often might get ONE canned meal EVERY
DAY for a MONTH (about 200 cans). I know that Schools and Churches
already do this, but if your money and your explanatory note showed
up, they might suddenly find that they can help a bunch of kids get
Of course, I realize that a Soup Kitchen can feed a LOT more than that
number of people if they can cook whole meals, but that might not always
be possible for them to do. It depends a lot on just how many people
need their services at any given time! If they have FIFTY people who
regularly show up for a good dinner, $250 might enable them to do that
each day for maybe five or ten days! And all because you included your
typewritten note that explains how you hope that your money might get
