Chill Out! Refrigerators Use A Lot Of Energy!

One thing is perfectly clear: you would be foolish not to use at least a conventional energy-star refrigerator, and even with those, you need to be aware that there is a wide variation, mostly dependent on style and features of the unit.

Klipheuwel Wind Turbine Project In South Africa

Eskom has gone to lengths to make this installation blend with the environment. Virtually no real estate is taken up (farming can be done right underneath the units) and standing under windmills of this size not unpleasant at all ... even the cows seem to like the gentle swishing sound they make ... as witnessed by the locations of their deposits :-)

Lighting The Way To Energy Efficiency - And Cost Savings- With Whole-Home Lighting Controls

It's not often we associate something that consumes power-such as lighting-as a means to saving or conserving, but by their inherent design and very purpose, lighting controls are a way to not only save electricity and related costs, they're a fun, convenient and futuristic way to go about it.

Product Review - Cost Control Power Consumption Monitor

Take a moment to program in your electric utility rate ($ per kwh) and the unit will tell you the total cost of running the appliance during the time of monitoring. Push the "Cost" button again and it will calculate the cost per day ... another button push = cost per month and one more push forecasts the cost per year.

Sierra Solar Commissions Largest Residential Photovoltaic System In California At 57 KW

This huge residential system was a great success for the Laursens, and for Sierra Solar Systems who provided the equipment. The family has now completely eliminated their high utility bill and will be powering their home for generations to come with clean renewable energy. In addition, local wildlife will receive the benefit of a year-round drinking supply.

Solar Heating,Cooling & Refrigeration - Using The Sun For Emergency Preparedness

It is not fun being without air conditioning in the summer. Several years ago we had our house unit go out on the hottest day of the year. It was 126 degrees F in the shade and even hotter in the house. Fish were dying and we were miserable. After searching for two days I finally found a window swamp cooler that got us by until we could get the house air conditioner fixed.

The Value Of Energy Efficiency In Stand Alone PV Systems: A Simple Approach

We know that conservation is important, but exactly how many dollars should be invested to save a KWH? We answer this question by comparing the investment necessary to produce one KWH/day with the cost of conserving one KWH/day. Even though a KWH is relatively expensive, with effective investments in conservation you can substantially reduce the total cost of operating a home with a stand alone power system.

Trends In Residential Energy Management

Expect cautious incursions into the world of deployed energy management solutions in the beginning. Eventually, however, we believe that commercial deployments in larger numbers will be the norm, at least in certain markets. After 30+ years of watching a market evolve at a painstakingly tortuous pace, the next few years should provide some interest and excitement.

SolarMount Top Mounting—Faster Than Ever With T-Bolts

UniRac introduces T-bolt to further speed installation using its top mounting SolarMount system for racking photovoltaic arrays.

Canadian based solar power company helps reduce greenhouse emissions by over 45 Metric tons.

ICP Global Technologies will now be including a greenhouse emissions savings index (the "ICP Kyoto index") on each of its product web pages that will indicate the amount of greenhouse emissions these products will help save every year over using conventional energy sources.

EPA, UPS and DaimlerChrysler Test Fuel Cell Vehicles for Real World Use on City Streets

EPA Administrator Christie Whitman today joined senior executives from DaimlerChrysler and UPS to announce a new government-industry partnership to put hydrogen-powered fuel cell delivery vehicles on the road. For the first time, fuel cell delivery vehicles will be tested in a real-world driving environment on the nation's streets. Whitman unveiled this initiative at EPA's National Vehicle and Fuel Emissions Laboratory (NVFEL) in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Professional weather sensors form the heart of large solar plants supporting their operation and performance. Lufft was the first manufacturer to combine several sensors in one housing, bringing the largest multiparameter weather sensor family with 19 members into being. Many of them are well-suited for solar site assessment and continuous monitoring. The most commonly used one is the WS600 delivering data on temperature, air pressure, wind, relative humidity and precipitation. Through its open protocol, it can easily be attached to radiation sensors e.g. from Kipp&Zonen. Other models have an integrated Silicon, Second Class or Secondary Standard radiation sensor.
