Striking another blow to the oil and gas industries, an American solar company has developed technology that can produce super-efficient solar power that’s cheaper than fossil fuels. Rayton Solar’s new solar panel manufacturing technology uses 50 to 100 times less silicon than other technologies, cutting out large amounts of the most costly component of solar panels
A Trombe wall is a passive solar building technique where a wall is built on the winter sun side of a building with a glass external layer and a high heat capacity internal layer separated by a layer of air. Heat in close to UV spectrum passes through the glass almost unhindered then is absorbed by the wall that then re-radiates in the far infrared spectrum which does not pass back through the glass easily, hence heating the inside of the building.
Love Love Love these Bricks! What a Great Idea! Sun Bricks compliment or replace traditional low-level patio lighting with flush-to-the ground patio pavers. Alternate Sun Bricks with traditional patio bricks to add nighttime safety and atmosphere to your home. Solar powered LED technology means no increase in electric bills and no bulbs to replace. Each day’s ‘charge’ provides about 8 hours of power for each self-contained brick. #Unique #Outdoor #Patio #Sun_Bricks #Lights #Lighting #Ideas
