  • Energy efficiency: Big deals and new ideas

    The economic premise behind energy efficiency –  that it’s cheaper to save a unit of energy than to make one – has caught on in the US.  Energy efficiency spending is up, and our energy use is declining, measured both per capita and per dollar of gross domestic product, according to government ...

  • Closer Look at the Capacity of SLA Batteries and Solar Energy Systems

    Sealed lead acid (SLA) batteries have a reputation for being durable when used to support portable electronic devices. They require minimal maintenance and offer leak-proof capabilities. But when used with solar energy systems, the units present issues that can hinder the potential and performance of the machines. For example, general purpose SLA batteries should not be deep cycled, as ...
