    hehe... Make one big enough to put on one side of your lawn to the other, and see what the neighbors say when there's lightning across your lawn, and they have no electricity :eek: :D :cool:

    do you know how big the generator needs to be to get 40kw? that's not something to sneeze at. I've worked with 20kw before, and that was a little nerve racking.

    Actually, such a project was attempted by the Government, however, there was no such process for selectively targeting the Tesla Coil at a particular person (the Enemy for example). Hehehe:)

    Eh, that's no problem. Just build a power plant to power the tesla coil. You have to be sure to put gun turrets near it or else those damned allies will be able to blow up it too easily when they attack your bas..err... house. :D
