U.S. Beats Canada 4:1 on Renewables

United States consumes four times the level of renewable energies as Canada.

Consumption of non-hydro renewables in Canada was 1% of the country's total energy in 2005, according to latest data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration.

Canada consumed 14.3 quadrillion Btu, of which oil was 33%, natural gas 25%, hydroelectricity 25%, coal 9%, nuclear 7% and 'other renewables' was 1% (includes solar, wind, tidal, geothermal, solid biomass & animal products, biomass gas & liquids, industrial & municipal wastes).

Comparable EIA data for the United States (2007 figures) says non-hydro renewables accounted for 4.3% of its energy consumption.

Flex-Core - Flexible Split-Core Current Transformer

The FCL model split-core current transformers have multiple benefits, including a flexible twisting motion for ease of application. Installing a split-core CT means there is no need to disconnect your primary conductor(s) which reduces downtime. Many customizations are available including extended secondary lead wire lengths, various outputs including 5A, 1A, 1VAC, and 0.333VAC, and custom rubber inserts to help center the CT and maintain accuracy. The FCL models can be used in applications up to 720VAC and have an operating frequency from 50Hz to 400Hz.
