Re: Power - The time rate of doing work

<t>Hi Richard:<br/> <br/> I absolutely agree on the upscaling part of power generation.<br/> It is futile to build tiny plants enmass...One large plant is more cost efficient and much easier to manage than a hodge podge of inky dinky plants.<br/> One area that the goverment dropped the ball was matc...

Re: Constructing Energy Efficient Dwellings

<t>Hi Guys:<br/> <br/> I have found that the battery is not the key issue with the solar house but rather the inverter. I use 8 -115 amp hour trowling batteries from Walmart. By not discharging them too deeply <br/> the life of the battery will extend for several years past the design lifetime. I ha...
