Ecotricity, a large UK-based renewable energy company, is now looking to enter the micro wind sector. It is currently in the process of testing its own turbine design, which it … [Read full article]
Many years ago, wind power was commonly used for domestic purposes. Don Cervantes tilted at windmills that were being used for domestic purposes. In the British colonial era, wind … [Read full article]
Energy costs just keep on rising, with only short respites that allow us to stay complacent to pending environmental and energy shortage crises.
This has an effect on all of us every day. Even if we don’t drive and we power our house with clean energy sources like wind and solar energy, which use “free” fuel, the prices of everything are affected by rising dirty energy prices. Transportation of goods and electricity costs rise for most people and businesses, and those costs are passed on to everyone.
But, if we jump on the clean, green energy bandwagon now, at least, we can at least revel in our own electricity and transportation savings.
Now, you may or may not know, other than working on Planetsave, the place I spend most of my time is working on CleanTechnica, our sister site dedicated to covering topics such as wind energy, solar energy, and energy efficiency. I actually was not much of a tech guy just a few years ago, but I started writing on there two summers ago and slowly became obsessed. Now, I’m considered an expert in the field.
So, we’ve covered solar energy and microhydro energy in this Going Green Tips series. Here’s one more small-scale energy option: micro-wind. Like microhydro, micro-wind isn’t an option many people think … [Read full article]
