Some final thoughts. I originally made this set up as a back up power source for when the power went out. But, I think I will use it more often than that. I don't think the solar panels are powerful enough to charge the batteries after depleting them every day. Pro tips to help you find your inner artist From the beginning of my career as a young artist, the worlds of JRR Tolkien have inspired me to create art. From Frodo to Boromir to Saruman, I love to delve into their psyche and create images reflecting the turmoil and conflicts that rocked their world, and in a way mirror our own. My earlier attempts at portraying the riches of Tolkien's writings had always fallen short, not just at the technical level but on the conceptual as well. Yet still I pushed on, for my love of the story overcame any limitations I felt in my artistic skills.

Geodesic Dome Calculator — ByExample.com Our geodesic dome calculator will calculate the length and number of struts for 2V, 3V, and 4V geodesic domes based on the specified radius. It's a useful tool for planning the size of your dome. Radius = 50 feet * Strut lengths are from vertex to vertex. When designing and building a dome strut lengths will have to be reduced if using connectors and will have to be increased if using bolts to connect flattened ends of pipe. To re-calculate the strut lengths enter a new value for the dome's Radius below. Voltage Drop and Cable Size Calculator This calculator determines the voltage drop (in mV/A.m) in a circuit with the given characteristics (allowable voltage drop, cable run length, maximum current demand, system voltage), and recommends a suitable cable size to ensure that this level of voltage drop is not exceeded. Cable size recommendations are based on Australian Standard AS3000. Note that this calculator does not consider current carrying capacity. In most cases, voltage drop is a more significant consideration in ELV circuits, with cables satisfying voltage drop requirements automatically satisfying current carrying requirements. The main exception to this rule of thumb can be high current cables attached to batteries. Allowable Voltage Drop (%): The percentage of voltage drop acceptable.
This brave illustration project made a D&AD New Blood judge cry University of Lincoln creative advertising graduate Tom Watkins reduced a jury member to tears during judging for the D&AD New Blood Awards. His project, When I'm a Dad, is a highly personal response to a New Blood brief from WeTransfer: envision the person you'll be in 10 years time through illustration. Watkins illustrated a beautiful children's book to inspire future fathers and launched a website to help grow an online conversation around the project. "Such a brave, personal and unique take on the brief, with a beautiful sentiment and a maturity that belies the age of the author," said the judges. We covered the project back in March – you can read more here. D&AD names five future superstars
Miami Solar - South Florida Certified Solar Panel Installation Company Miami Florida is known as one of the sunniest places in the US. Florida is considered the Sunshine State and Florida Solar One has been a leading Miami solar energy installer and contractor for nearly a decade. NABCEP Certified Solar Installer, UL Certified Solar Installer and Florida State Certified Solar Contractor licensure means few solar companies can match the experience and qualifications of Florida Solar One. Building Miami solar panel systems to withstand hurricane force winds, near equatorial sunshine and 100% humidity requires specific skills that can only come from years of experience. The Miami Dade building department requires Solar systems withstand up to 180 MPH winds.
Geothermal Heat Pumps Geothermal heat pumps (GHPs), sometimes referred to as GeoExchange, earth-coupled, ground-source, or water-source heat pumps, have been in use since the late 1940s. They use the constant temperature of the earth as the exchange medium instead of the outside air temperature. This allows the system to reach fairly high efficiencies (300% to 600%) on the coldest winter nights, compared to 175% to 250% for air-source heat pumps on cool days. Although many parts of the country experience seasonal temperature extremes -- from scorching heat in the summer to sub-zero cold in the winter—a few feet below the earth's surface the ground remains at a relatively constant temperature. Depending on latitude, ground temperatures range from 45°F (7°C) to 75°F (21°C). Like a cave, this ground temperature is warmer than the air above it during the winter and cooler than the air in the summer.
