Tesla Motors' acquisition of SolarCity has hit a bit of a road bump in the form of four lawsuits filled to challenge the deal.
While solar cells and wind turbines are the devices many people will think of for off-grid electricity production, the development of practical artificial photosynthesis for the creation of hydrogen via solar-powered water splitting could radically a
Ernest Hancock and Bob Anderson (local libertarian activist; off-grid) do a special podcast to cover relevant topics such as energy, real estate, precious metals, the election, and other prepping and libertarian issues...
By the end of this year, Tesla Motors will launch what it calls "the largest lithium ion battery storage project in the world" in California.
Jason Hughes, also known also as wk057, who from time-to-time uses his hacking skills to experiment with Tesla cars, shared his insights after the first year of owning a 44.4 kW off-grid solar system.
The environmentalist pitch for wind turbines is a far cry from the actual experience of them in local communities. They are inefficient, costly, loud and require constant maintenance. But, they say, alternative energy must be developed at any cost.
"We're not in a clean energy revolution; we're in a clean energy crisis," says climate policy expert Michael Shellenberger. His surprising solution: nuclear.
While the latest commercially available rooftop solar panels boast conversion efficiencies around the 18 to 20 percent mark, there are solar cells capable of achieving efficiencies of over 40 percent.
For over 100 days in 2016, Costa Rica has generated all of its electricity from hydro, wind, solar, biomass, and geothermal sources -- 100 percent renewable energy.
These turbines for rivers and canals allow for the introduction of a base load supply, providing a complete renewable energy solution for the best cost-benefit possible.
These panels have glass but do have a little flexibility to them for installing on uneven surfaces.
In an isolated state, Fairbanks is an isolated city. Unlike fellow Alaskan urban centers Juneau and Anchorage, it's landlocked, resting in a wide valley not far from the Arctic tree line. From here, most everything in the world lies south--the river
One device could save lives in the coming years as the Earth's surface heats up.
A scam to begin with (selling nothing for something), California's cap-and-trade auctions are not gobbled up as expected. Why? Business don't spend money on things where there is no payback. ? TN Editor
