The Million Solar Roofs Initiative will save customers and the state over $6 billion while at the same time providing for our long-term energy needs and improving both our economy and our environment.
Radiation is how the sun heats the earth, as there is no air between the two. Radiation is usually far more efficient than convection and the air movement is minimal.
Below is an extract from "Introduction to Hydrogen and Fuel Cells", online educational material about Hydrogen and Fuel Cell technology designed for teachers and students at ages of 13-16 years old.
A programmable thermostat can save you money on your utility bill - up to 33%, if used as directed. You set it up to adjust the temperature when you are away from home or asleep.
World history has always seen the development of small-scale, innovative technologies to larger-scale applications. Why not pursue this same evolution with such bold new schemes as those shown here, that combine food and energy production, increased proximity to nature and access to high and low speed transportation links?
Globally, a study from Stanford University has suggested that the world could harvest five times more power from the wind than we are currently using for all purposes - if we want to.
The truth may be that we are approaching the halfway mark in the world's oil supply, after which production will start to decline.
Not only does the use of alternative energy promote a healthier environment, the reduction in traditional energy consumption truly adds up in savings over time, which is a selling point for builders and a real advantage to consumers.
Fossil fuels are incredibly valuable resources. How efficiently we use these resources will determine how long they last. Fuel Cells Make Fuels Last Longer.
Even at the risk of losing some business, we are committed to adapting alternative materials that will ultimately help preserve the environment while offering high quality, more affordable products that add beauty to the home without accelerating the loss of our natural resources.
Through the application of fast pyrolysis, DynaMotive's technology unlocks the natural energy found in the world's abundant organic residues produced by the agricultural and forest industries.
Since 2001, Focus on Energy has worked with Stora Enso to lower its annual energy consumption by 22 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) and 3.6 million therms of natural gas, in turn lowering its annual energy costs by $3.5 million
The ability to get PV costs down further will depend on bigger fabs and worker productivity.
A "low speed electric mobile advertising system," whereby utility bed GEM vehicles are outfitted with illuminated billboards.
Next Energy expects that the building will require over 80% less energy than a conventionally built, fossil fuel-fired structure.

Eliminate Solar Rack Ballast and Reduce Rooftop Material Handling. PowerGrip™ Universal (PGU) is a commercial roof mount system designed to secure solar racks and other equipment to any type of commercial roofing system. PGU provides a secure connection directly to the roof deck or structural members and is designed to reduce or eliminate ballast in solar racking systems, so there's less weight on the roof and less material handling. Made of heavy-duty cast aluminum, PGU units include a base ring which is secured through the roofing cover and into the structural roof deck, and a waterproof top plate.
