Ecotech Institute, the first and only college focused entirely on preparing America’s workforce for careers in renewable energy and sustainable design, today announced that it has installed an array of new laboratory equipment, further positioning the school as the premiere destination for renewable energy education.
Ecotech now has seven computer labs, nine clean energy labs and 11…
Collection of Examples for Solar vs. Nuclear- Energy Production Debate and Proposed Bill
* Missourians, Don't let the TV Ads on Senate Bill 50 Fool You. Read the Information for yourself-I've supplied all the web links where I found the Info.
* Solar is not the Best Form of Renewable Energy- I don't consider Nuclear Energy a form of Renewable Energy since the Waste will be placed in the Ground- IE: It could pollute the Water our Bodies Must Have-We Consume Everyday
With the Republican Party's newly won control of the House of
Representatives, national energy policy could be rolled back to 2005,
with all legislative advances under a Democratic Party majority at risk.
Republicans could adopt a dual-track strategy that attacks energy
regulation through budget reductions of the Environmental Protection
Agency that de-fund efforts to impose carbon emissions on industrial
infrastructure, at a minimum coal-burning utilities and the… Continue

Google’s Bill Weihl expresses his opinion, “We see a chance to make a difference in the field of renewable energy and energy information that can help bring the world to a lower carbon and more efficient economy.” Google is known for its Internet search engine. Now they want to make inroads into green technology too. They declared in 2007 that they want to… Continue
FPL is constructing three solar energy projects, at diverse locations throughout the state. Together, FPL’s Next Generation Solar Energy Centers will provide customers with renewable energy that will substantially reduce greenhouse gas emissions and decrease fossil-fuel usage.
Over the life of the centers, the solar energy produced will prevent the emission of more than 3.5 million tons of greenhouse gases, which according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is equivalent to…
With the popularity of solar power and wind turbines gaining steadily many people are wondering if America can eventually rely on wind power and solar power to provide all of our energy needs. Al Gore and some others believe it can be done. But what happens to solar power at night? And how do you rely on wind power when breezes are sometimes too calm to generate electric power? It is a fair question. After all, the sun doesn't shine 24 hours a day and the wind can be variable.
There is a now a completely portable (and ultra-high efficient) solar power generator which produces up to 1800 watts of household electricity on demand when you need it most. News of this solar backup generator (its the first off-the-grid breakthrough in 50 years) is spreading like wildfire all across the country!

“When traveling in remote places, you are forced to become a jack of all trades—an electrician, plumber, diesel mechanic, and handyman, all in one,” Mike says. “My best defense is to be prepared for anything. I’ve done my research, and I can handle most repairs that arise. So far, so good.”
Mindful of the elements, Mike took extra care when wiring both the… Continue
“It’s a double-edged sword with wind,” Mike says. “We like the wind, and we need the wind, but we also like to get out of the wind.” Before, anchoring in low-wind spots or seeking shelter in harbors meant that the couple had to rely on the diesel generator. For that reason, Mike chose to supplement the wind generator with a simple solar-electric system—two Shell… Continue
For cruisers, who generally sail in areas where the sun and wind are abundant, combining solar and wind power is a no-brainer—especially when the alternative is burning diesel fuel to charge batteries. “When you use the power of the wind to move your home,” Mike says, “you feel good. And when you can power the rest of your needs with renewable energy, it completes the… Continue
Harvesting solar power from space through orbiting solar farms sounds extremely interesting. Mitsubishi Electric Corp., a manufacturer of solar panels, has decided to join an AUD $25 billion Japanese project to construct a massive solar farm in space within three decades.
Japan has already started working towards achieving its goal by developing a technology for 1-gigawatt solar farm, which would include four square kilometers of solar panels that will be stationed 36,000 kilometers… Continue
