Reducing Energy Consumption

We have the potential to produce all of our electricity from clean energy sources. Today, we have the technology and the know-how to move beyond our dependence on polluting power plants by using clean, safe, and free renewable energy A clean energy future will rely not just on renewable energy, but also on better use of the energy we currently produce. By making the energy we produce last longer, or by increasing "energy efficiency," we can avoid the need for new polluting power plants. We can increase energy efficiency by using available technologies that do the same amount [...]

Cook hotdogs with the Sun in minutes

In this section we will show you how to make a powerful solar concentrator that can cook four or five hotdogs in  minutes. The Solar Hotdog Cooker is made out of a thin (1/8 inch thick) plastic mirror that can be found at plastic shops and glass stores (although it may have to be special ordered at some stores). The plastic is bent into the shape of a parabola, so that the sun's rays are collected over an eight square foot area, and focused in a thin line. The hotdogs are roasted on a spit placed at the [...]

Collect the Wind Power for Ultimate Energizer

Wind power Wind energy is the kinetic energy of the air in motion. The kinetic energy of packet of air of mass m with velocity v is given by V: m v2 To find the mass of the packet passing through an area A perpendicular its velocity (which could be the rotor area of a turbine), we multiply its volume after time t has passed with the air density p, which gives us m=A v t p. So, we find that the total wind energy is:                                                       E = ½ pAv3 t Differentiating with respect to time to [...]

Bulletproof your home with energy and save money

Did you know that the typical U.S. family spends about $1,900 a year on home utility bills? Unfortunately, a large portion of that energy is wasted. And each year, electricity generated by fossil fuels for a single home puts more carbon dioxide into the air than two average cars. And as for the road, transportation accounts for 6 7°/o of all U.S. oil consumption. The good news is that there is a lot you can do to save energy and money at home and in your car. Start making small changes today.   DOWNLOAD .PDF
