Photovoltaic Discoveries Around the Home with Children

Posted by SEPCO on 4/16/13 9:30 AM

Solar power is one of the cleanest and most reliably abundant sources of power we have encountered as a species. Wind may be clean as well, but it requires air currents. If we ever run out of solar power, we'll have bigger problems than power to worry about. Although the Sun is a great source for this power, did you know that other items around the home generate photovoltaic power as well? Armed with a solar cell and a typical current tester, you and your children can discover a world of wasted energy.

Renewable Energy: Companies are Going Clean

Posted by SEPCO on 4/9/13 9:30 AM

Green CompaniesIt seems more and more companies are starting to look to clean energy as a source of power. Apple recently announced 75 percent of its corporate facilities and data centers use renewable sources for power and they own the nation’s biggest privately-owned solar array. Their 100-acre, 20-megawatt facility can create 42 million kWh of renewable energy each year with less impact on the environment and climate. Apple is not the only powerhouse company jumping on the clean energy bandwagon. Google uses renewable sources to power more than 30 percent of their operations and is working toward ultimately having 100 percent of their power come in the form of clean energy.

Flagpole Lighting Design to Showcase Your Patriotism

Posted by SEPCO on 4/2/13 8:30 AM

Showing off your patriotism all starts with the flag pole in your front yard. This showcases the pride you feel for your country for all who pass by, both day and night. Of course, to ensure everyone who drives and walks past at night are able to see the flag, you need to have appropriate lighting directed towards the top of the pole. There are many different ways to go about utilizing an appropriate flagpole lighting design, but there are some methods that are just going to cost far to much money. It shouldn't cost an excessive amount of money to showcase your patriotism. Instead, with the appropriate equipment, you are able to utilize the current flagpole lighting design and point out the American flag, whether it is in the middle of the day or late at night.

The main issue with lighting around your nighttime display is the overall cost of keeping the flag highlighted. Turning on high-profile lighting equipment for hours at a time is going to increase your monthly utility bill rather substantially, which is why you need to look for another option. This doesn't mean you need to take down your flag during the night, or just go without individuals seeing the display. Instead, you just need to invest in a solar flagpole lighting design. With the solar equipment you're able to improve the ability to highlight the flag at the same time you save a good deal of money over the monthly utility bill.

Solar lighting equipment allows the hardware to actually absorb solar rays throughout the day, as the lighting equipment is not needed during these hours. This gives the different spotlights an extended period of time to absorb and store enough energy in order to produce a strong beam of light during the night. Once the sun goes down the lighting equipment is able to detect the lack of sunlight and automatically turn on. These devices are selfsustaining and don't require any sort of direct connection to your electrical line. This way, no matter the time of year or how long the nights are where you live, you are always able to display your patriotism and highlight your American flag at all hours of the night, without actually costing yourself any sort of money due to expensive utility bills. After the installation, there is minimal maintenance required for your solar lighting equipment.
