Abstract: The erratic power supply has been a growing cause for concern in developing countries. It becomes more challenging to supply adequate energy in countries with a high population due to the increased demand and this has led to load shedding and spreading in Nigeria. Also, emissions from power plants, impacts of hydroelectric development, and risks associated with nuclear energy use have been targets for political action due to the recent pursuit of sustainability development. Also, evidence of depletion of the protective ozone layer and its impact on the environment have urged the need for rapid development of alternative power generation method void of causing adverse environmental impact. This paper, therefore, discusses the design and evaluation of a self-starting fuel less power generator using DC motor as the prime mover to generate electrical energy from an alternator. The alternator armature shaft was coupled directly with DC motor powered by a rechargeable battery. The DC motor rotates the armature of the alternator in the field coil at high speed when activated from the starting switch, which results in alternating current output voltages of 220V.
