Split Air Conditioners and Other Energy Efficient Appliances

So many people are eager to learn about the simple actions they could take in their existence to exist in a more environmentally renewable manner. As buyers we wield a considerable amount of power. By acting in a responsible and environmental conscious way, we can have a great constructive impact on the environment. By very carefully choosing the goods we buy, we send out a message for the manufacturers that we want them to make those items. Essentially, this comes down to a vote, and voting with your money is just as significant as voting with a poll.

Solar Powered LED Grow Lights

Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011

Although not a solar product per se, LED grow lights are an excellent load for solar power systems. In cold climates (like where I live) we have shortened growing seasons and many highly desirable plants like lemons, oranges, limes, kiwi, starfruit do not grow well here. The plants can be coaxed, but need to be given as much support in their early life as possible. A solar powered LED grow lamp can provide this extra energy they need to ensure good root development early in life as well as supplimental light durring the fall, winter, and spring. I like to think of a solar powered LED grow light system as capturing non-usable sunlight, storing it, and reimitting it at my selected target.
