On Energy Management, Manufacturing and Factory Automation

I wrote this article for HomeToys.com, our Home Technology website but it applies to Alternative Energy as well. It's not enough to monitor our energy use. We don't really care about that unless it does something to change our lives or save us money. So, let's put a solar system on the roof. Now that can do both of these things and should attract our attention. But let's take it a step further. With that solar system there is a new variable in the mix --- FREE CLEAN ENERGY. What can and should we do with it.

NREL, of course, is where the Department of Energy tests and develops new materials and techniques for solar, wind and other kinds of energy.
