Tesla’s newest foray is into the world of rooftops. Elon Musk has pledged that all houses can benefit from tiles made of glass and solar panels and claims that the cost to install will be cheaper than a regular roof plus electricity.
When Tesla’s principles, via this new technology, are applied to a regular electrical outlet, the results are nothing short of mind-blowing.
The batteries allow the user to have a more steady supply of solar power and to store all energy that comes in throughout the day, none of it to go to...
“Today we are witnessing an exciting new technology solution moving from the lab to be prototyped on everyday Australian rooftops for the first time,” ARENA CEO Ivor Frischknecht said in a statement.
All kinds of electrical devices we have today are made to have a limited lifetime, which perfectly serves the interests of the consumerist society we live in. Just think about it: if all home appliances and electronic devices we use daily were designed to last, would we need to constantly buy new ones?
With the wingspan of a Boeing 747 but weighing only as much as an SUV, the Solar Impulse 2 glides past the Golden Gate Bridge into San Francisco marking an incredible achievement. The experimental plane continues its flight around the world without using a single drop of fuel to prove that clean technologies do exist and are capable of doing more than we thought possible.
This bike could power your entire home!
This technique uses a copper coil to heat the water. This is a very nice and inexpensive way to have hot water in a grid down situation. No electricity required...
A Dutch start-up called Plant-e harnesses electricity from living plants, and then uses it to power cell phone chargers, Wi-Fi hotspots, and now over 300 LED streetlights in two sites...
