What If Your Utilities Didn’t Have To Come Out Of Your Paycheck?

Written by Kenn Daily on July 19, 2018

I hate paying utility bills. What’s worse, I hate having my utilities disconnected due to non-payment.

What if there were a strategy to effectively acquire free utilities — electricity and gas — for life?

Believe it or not, most of us can convert our body’s own energy to power our homes; to provide electricity and gas for lights, heat, air conditioning, refrigerators, and even power our computers.

Yes, there is such a strategy. I know it works. I’ve been doing it for years. I converted my personal body energy to home utilities using this system.

No, I’m not crazy. No, I’m not selling anything. And, no, it does not involve solar energy, heat exchange systems, or other such alternatives. In fact, I’m 100-percent on the grid; though I could use off-the-grid alternatives if I wanted.

I decided to share my strategy after watching a weird and bizarre “do-it-yourself air conditioner” video. This silly device is comprised of a milk jug filled with frozen water placed in a bucket and covered with a fan. The fan forces hot air into to the bucket where it is cooled. The cooled air is released back into the room through holes pre-drilled in the bucket.

Seriously? Isn’t there a better way?

Yes, there is. And here it is.


Your body is constantly converting the food you eat to produce energy. Your body then expends that energy through walking, talking, heart beating, breathing and, yes, even thinking.

Think of your physical body as an energy powerhouse. Let’s harness that energy and convert it to home utilities using three simple steps.

Step one: Convert your body energy to cash.

The objective is NOT to earn cash to pay for utilities. You’re likely already doing that. The goal is to get your utilities effectively for free without working.

The strategy is to convert your body’s energy to cash by “selling” that energy to a business. Businesses need your energy to stock shelves, run cash registers, sweep floors, etc. Alternately, you could “sell” your body’s energy to a fabric store, restaurant, or even to yourself by starting a part-time lawn care business.

Let’s say you’re selling ten hours of your body’s energy for ten dollars per hour per week. That’s $400 per month.

Step two: Convert your cash to home energy.

Invest in high-yield ETFs.

Invest your first $400 paycheck in a high-yield ETF (Exchange Traded Fund). Yes, there are actually professionals called “brokers” or “financial advisers” who will guide you in the right direction.

If your ETF pays eight-percent per year, your $400 will generate $32 per year or, at 13 cents per kilowatt, about 246 kilowatts per year.

Congratulations. You are now effectively receiving 246 kilowatts per year for free. And all you did was invest your body’s energy for ten hours per week for four weeks.

Step three: Continue converting your body’s energy until your utilities are fully paid for life

The average household uses slightly less than 1,000 kilowatts of electricity per month; about $130. Using our method of setting aside ten hours per week to convert body energy to cash, in only 17 weeks you could generate one month of “free” electricity each year for life. Continue converting ten hours of body energy each week for 204 weeks and, voilà, your electric bill is effectively paid for life.

There are, of course, many variables. Your monthly kilowatt usage may be greater or smaller. You may earn more or less than $10-per-hour. (Last I checked WalMart’s starting wage is $11-per-hour). You may prefer to convert more than ten hours per week to “utilities”. You may find an investment that pays more or less than eight percent per year. And, of course, you must factor in taxes, travel costs, and other considerations.

But the bottom line is this: The average single-family household spends $2,060 per year on utilities according energystar.gov. A $25,750 investment earning a net income of eight-percent per year would generate enough income to cover that cost. Or, for every dollar you spend on utilities, you will need about $12.50 invested at a net of 8 percent to pay them “for free”. Again, that’s without drilling holes in an ice bucket.
