Palm Springs - Green Friday, June 2, 2006


Founders of Green Friday are planning a Hybrid Parade through downtown Palm Springs at noon. Local hybrid owners will be gathering at the Palm Springs visitors center north of downtown. Coincidentally, the visitors center was originally a gas station and designed by the famous architect Albert Frey.

The event begins at 11:30 at the visitors center pavillion and the parade begins at noon. Hybrid drivers with headlights on will proceed down Hwy 111 (Palm Canyon Drive) to Ramon Road, turn left to N. Indian Canyon Drive and proceed north on Indian Canyon and left on Alejo to proceed one last loop through downtown returning back up N. Indian Canyon Drive to enjoy snacks at the visitors center.

Hybrid drivers unable to be at the event, as well as hybrid drivers in other cities are asked to drive with their lights on from noon to 12:30 on Green Friday, June 2nd. As usual, everyone is asked to show their support by wearing a green.

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.
