Locating the Panelboard

IAEI Magazine
Can a panelboard be located “you fill in the blank?” How often have you heard this question? Let’s take a look at some of the rules on panelboard placement contained in the National Electric Code (NEC).

The Best Electricity Plan: Overbuild Solar & Wind Power Plants

Clean Technica
More than 8 years ago, researchers from the University of Delaware (UD) and Delaware Technical College (DTCC) put forward a rather “radical” idea — to deal with wind and solar power’s intermittency while also acknowledging wind and solar power’s falling costs, why not just overbuild wind and solar power plants in the future?

Construction begins on energy storage system relying on gravity

In the early 1600s, astronomer Galileo dropped balls from the Tower of Pisa and declared that gravitational acceleration is the same for all objects. Decades later, Isaac Newton expanded on those thoughts and devised his theory of gravity, that all particles attract all other particles with a force directly proportional to the square of the distance between their centers.
