    Nice idea, but if we all had permanent magnetic generators we wouldn’t need to worry about having a smart grid at all. In fact, if everybody were to install one between the power line and their circuit breaker their energy bill would be cut anywhere from 60%-80%, depending on how efficient the generator was. Not to mention that the life of the magnetic field in a permanent magnet is like 150-200 years.
