Scalable First Flush System for Rainwater Collection
Here is a simple idea for a "first flush" system for rainwater collection. It is made of pvc pipe and the first flush section is made of 4 inch pipe. For every 18.5 inches used, it will hold 1 gallon. It is scalable by adding more pipes to the left side. I could use 2 pipes at 46 inches each and get 5 gallons of first flush capability, for example. The pipes have a bottom cap and a small hole drilled in them. This way, when the rain starts falling, the first 5 gallons would go into these…

New Stick-on Solar Panels Make Installations a Snap
Global Solar is introducing flexible solar modules that builders can stick directly on the roof, rather than construct racks to hold heavy glass-covered cells. The modules won't cost less than traditional arrays, at least initially, but they make it easier to include solar power at the time of construction and, without the racks, can cover a greater portion of the roof and provide more power.
