Full mAh capacity range of NiMH (the good chemistry) rechargeable batteries for Solar Lights are now available!
Solar lights for the home and garden come with pre-installed, pre-charged batteries from most (safe to say, all) manufacturers when you buy them online or directly at stores. What many people don't realize is that these rechargeable batteries will eventually run their course and lose all of their effective capacity after about 2 years of nightly use. These solar light batteries are almost always r...

Australia is at it again, making the most out of solar design while conserving water!

Posted By: Mario Villalobos on March 9, 2015 in Creative Solar, Latest Technology, Solar News, World News - Comments: No Comments »

One of the points made by solar opposition is the intrusion of installations on existing ecosystems. For example, desert installations in the US are often subject to EIRs (Environmental Impact Reports) that may make or break a project. Albeit, this is done for good reasons and with the right intent for all involved (human and non-human). So, designers in Australia have come up with a solution that doesn’t harm the footprint of the solar array installation, all while working as a water conservation system for a water treatment facility.

As this solar array is situated on a buoyant foundation, it acts as an evaporation barrier for the water below (cools the surface temperature of the water that is shaded by the solar array, thus less evaporation from radiation as well as some blockage of lateral wind evaporation.) No additional land is used with this array (see scenario above), so the situation is optimized for both electricity generation and efficient water treatment. The electricity generated is used to power the water treatment operations with excess electricity sold to the local township.

Smart design for a smart technology.  Way to go Australia!

Solar on!
