Hydrogen Power in the Panhandle

Bill Paetzold Bill Paetzold

Their's a process being worked on outside of Hereford, where one man is experimenting with a renewable energy that isn't well known.

Hydrogen energy is being experimented with by car makers and federal scientists.

But Bill Paetzold in Hereford says grass roots efforts will be able to help America sooner.

It looks like a lab a mad scientist might use, but he uses it to create hydrogen gas.

The potential for hydrogen gas is endless.

From your car to your house hydrogen is a clean answer to a growing national energy need.

"We're running out of fossil fuels buy 75 percent of energy out of country and when gas was 2 dollars that wasn't a problem. I don't think our economy can keep going when we're exporting all of our energy dollars," said Paetzold

Bill Paetzold's opinion lead him to start experimenting with hydrogen a couple of years ago.

"This thing's been running about 2 and a half years. 24/7 and all I do is add water about every 3 or 4 days. 2.3 gallons of water will make energy equivalent to a gallon of gas," said Paetzold. "It's not rocket science. The technology's out there it just seems nobody seems to be putting it together."

Anyone interested in more information can contact Bill at 344-5401.
