Recycling solar panels: It will need to happen, and when it does, will we be ready?
So the drive to install and implement solar panel systems onto our roofs and the utility grid system is in full force. And the speed is picking up. In France alone, 50,000 tons of potential waste is generated every year in the form of solar panels. Well, the average life span of the current design of solar panels is about 20 years. That means that in a short 20 years from now, those solar panels w...
The cleanest of renewable technologies (to date): Hydropower and the Dilemma of Lake Mead.
There are several technologies that currently exist (and scientists are working to find others) that use clean and renewable energy methods to produce energy; notably, electricity. One of the cleanest (thanks to the pioneering work of Nicola Tesla) and impressive is that of hydropower. Given that hydropower is quite simply the harnessing of electricity by the flowing of water, and in the case of L...
Solar lights aren’t just for gardens and patios, they are also used for street lighting!
When you think of solar lights, you may have visions of those lights found around homes and gardens that put out enough light to show you where they are and illuminate just a little bit of area around them on the ground. Furthermore, they usually charge enough to last only one night. So, if it is cloudy or rainy the following day, they may not emit as much free light as after that first full-day's...

A Green Christmas: Japan Uses Electric Eel to Light Christmas Tree!

Posted By: Your Solar Link Team on December 9, 2010 in Solar News - Comments: No Comments »

Looking for some alternatives to the typical holiday electric fare this year? What is a better Christmas present that a reduced energy bill? While some of us get creative with LED solar powered Christmas string lights, an aquarium in Japan has resolved this problem in by powering a Christmas tree with an electric eel!

See video below:

The Enoshima Aquarium in Kamakura (south of Tokyo) utilizes the eels ability to generate electricity when moving. It effectively powers a two meter Christmas tree. While the power generated isn’t enough to provide consistent light, it is strong enough to allow intermittent flashing.

See video below:

To further add to its eco-friendliness, the aquarium, have also added a robotic Santa Claus powered by human muscle. When visitors to the aquarium step on a pad, it generates electricity.

While the idea of using eel to promote eco-awareness is certainly a good one, you should probably stick with something like solar powered Christmas lights to create our own green Christmas. The decorative outdoor lights are an ideal addition to any home, but with an energy efficient twist you won’t feel guilty when they turn on night after night.

Solar String Lights are ideal to light up your trees, rooftops, doorways, pathways, windows and porches. No wiring. Fast and easy to install. Energy saving, recharged by solar panel under sunlight. Lights turn on automatically when dark. Safe, corrosion/water resistant.
