Hawaiian Electric's proposal to expand residential solar installations comes at a higher cost for some. Has that plan dimmed the interest in solar KITV 4's Paul Drewes stopped by this weekend's building industry remodeling expo to find out. There's a lot of new things at this year's Building Industry Association of Hawaii remodeling expo. 1300 shot of guy opening shoji screen A company in the islands is once again making shoji screens, 400 shade opening or closing There are sun shades that can open or close in a second.

But what is not new is the interest in putting photovoltaic panels on people's roofs. richard lee honolulu resident14291438 that's where energy is going, cheaper, doesn't harm the environment blake618630 There's a lot of interest, everyone knows the product is reliable. The dollars and cents of it is still advantageous. The spirits have just been kind of broken of the consumer by HECO's rules Hawaiian Electric recently came out with a new set of.
Proposed rules regarding residential solar connections. Delays in the plan have meant a backlog of completed installations waiting for HECO approval. It also meant some residents have turned on their systems without first getting that approval. blake726 the market has decided that PV is a better investment than paying a bill to a company that doesn't seem to have your interest at heart On Friday, HECO came out with a warning to those who are improperly connected. Pull the plug or else. graphic goes here Hawaiian Electric says, after sufficient notice, if a customer.
Does not disconnect the PV system and notify Hawaiian Electric, PUC rules give the utility authority to shut off the system and lock it to prevent interconnection until technical checks confirm it is safe. standup2905 while HECO cites safety as the reason for the shutoff, it also claims unapproved connections are hurting some solar companies david thompson alternate energy2323 HECO is claiming that because those folks are connecting without approval and that is actually holding up the process of them doing these studies, so it really hurts the folks that are waiting and.
Power Your Entire Home Without Wires!
This episode of DNews is proudly brought to you by Subaru. BY TESLA WE'VE GOT IT! Wireless electricity might be coming to a home near you. y'know. Someday. Greetings programs, Trace here for DNews. In 1897, Nikola Tesla asexual genius and inventor extraordinaire wanted to QUOTE turn the whole world into a giant wireless dynamo. He was awarded a patent in 1907 for wireless electricity but then the Great War began and the whole thing was lost to history. Now, over a century later, researchers at MIT created wireless power transmission which.
Could realize his dream! Sort of. While Tesla was trying to power cities, this transmits wireless power around your house! Your phone, car, television, laptop, game console, controllers, remotes, toaster and every lightbulb in every frickin' lamp could all be powered by magnetic resonators. The Faraday Law of Induction describes how an electromagnet creates a magnetic field. When an electrified coil of wire is wrapped around a metal rod, the metal magnetizes. Similarly, when you pass a magnet THROUGH an unpowered coil of wire, the magnet creates electricity. Physics is awesome.
Researchers at MIT found a way to turn simple physics into a wireless way to transmit electricity using a similar technology to WiFi. By plugging in a resonator to the alternating current outlet in your wall, the device creates a magnetic oscillation. The magnetic field of the resonator is large enough to mingle with nearby coils installed in the walls and floors of your house and ultimately into every device and BOOM wireless power. One magnetic coil influences another and another all over the house. It's like the barking chain in.
101 Dalmatians! MIT spun off the technology into a funny named company called WiTricity. The system can already power televisions, cell phones and keep their special AA batteries fully charged all at the same time! To be honest, induction charging has been around for a while, as has wireless power transmission. Radio waves are wireless power, the pads you can buy to charge your cell phone, mouse or game controllers use wireless power, but this is a bit different. The ones we have now use nearfield induction and this blows it into a whole new proportion.
The problem with any of these systems, is the efficiency. Magnetic fields have to be relatively closeby to pick up other magnetic fields. The MIT researchers were able to power one 60 watt light bulb from 2 meters away but it was only 45 efficient. So they put in 133 watts to power a 60 watt bulb. Not awesome though according to the researchers, this system is 1 million times more efficient than the ones already on the market. and the CEO of WiTricity says it's 1,000 times more efficient than a battery!.
Vertex FNBV104LI Battery
Today I'm going to talk to you about a new battery we have here. This is the FNBV104LI TWD and this is the replacement battery for the VX231 by Vertex and this is the old style so you notice it has the three diodes on the back, so if you still have a lot of those old chargers you can go ahead and pick this up on our website for the VX231 radio by Vertex. And it's a lithiumion battery and this is the highcapacity as well, so it's 2500mAh and we have it for a great price on our website twowaydirect, so pick up some today! Thanks.
Senegal La Corve des Portables Charging our Mobiles
Mobile Phone Chores When our mobile phones are dead we will do just about anything to recharge them. Sometimes people refuse us under whatever pretext. So we have to leave them off, and in that case, we can't receive any calls. So where do you go to recharge your phone We go to those houses that have an electricity generator. But it's not always clear where to go. Or we go to the Case des Tout Petits. Right now, I'm sending mine to Thies or to Baback so that someone can recharge it for me.
