Tips for Purchasing the Most Energy Efficient Clothes Washer

When buying a clothes washer, it can be helpful to think of two price tags. The first price tag is the price paid to purchase the washer. The second price tag is the cost to operate the washer over its lifetime.

Homeowners Discover The Peace And Quiet Of Manual Reel Mowers

Tips on using and enjoying manual reel mowers.

There Is No Global Fresh Water Issue

Zonnewater developed a desalination unit based on solar energy (95% thermal and 5% photovoltaic or wind energy), suited for coastal areas with an average temperature of 30 degrees Celsius. The prototype is a small one cubic meter greenhouse-type construction that produces 40 litres of water per day.

Dutch Firm Develops High Efficiency Solar Distillation Unit

Apart from the small electronic component the whole installation can be made locally with materials available in nearly every part of the world, being glass and PVC piping and appendages.

Grid Connected PV Inverters

Inverters convert the "DC" electrical power output of renewable energy technologies - such as solar, wind and fuel cells - to the high quality "AC" that our conventional power system require.

SEADOG - Pump Technology Harvests Renewable Power From Ocean Waves

SEADOG is a "point absorbing" wave energy converter designed to extract a small amount of energy from a portion of the wave front as the wave passes by, as opposed to other wave energy designs that attempt to extract large amounts of energy but may terminate the wave in the process.

Radiant Comfort And Energy-Efficiency

The concept of radiant heating is to warm walls, objects, and people which in return warm the air creating ultimate comfort at lower room temperature.

Shkoodaow - An Earth Wise Fire Log

CANMET tests have shown that this renewable biomass fuel log produces 94% less CO and 84% less Particulate Matter emissions than cordwood.
