Generate Electricity from Waste Toilet Paper – The Benefits and Possibility

Have you ever thought that the used toilet paper may not be a total wastage at all? It’s gross, but your ‘yuck’ will turn into ‘wow’ after knowing that this waste product can generate electricity! It can do us a huge favor by reducing the dependency on fossil fuels. The renewable power generation capacity increased by 9% in 2016 around the world. The discovery of newer sources was also admirable, accounting more than 30% of the total output of renewable energy. The waste toilet paper (WTP) could be a great addition to that array of resources, shooting up the total

Choosing a Residential Solar Panel for your Customers: A Checklist

While choosing a residential solar panel system for a customer has become easier, there are still many factors to consider when making the decision. There’s good reason to become knowledgeable about solar. With energy prices rising and consumers facing higher utility bills each month, solar panels are becoming a more reasonable choice for many households. Solar panels produce greener energy and can reduce dependency on the power supplied by the electrical grid. As a result, more and more customers are becoming interested in the possibilities of solar. How Does a Solar System Work? When choosing the right product for a

What are the Functions of Generators?

The incessant supply of electricity from the power grid to a household or business facility is almost impossible. There could be a natural disaster, damaged supply lines, and plenty of other technical issues to cause a power outage. This is where a generator comes into play. The functions of generators are to supply electrical power in the absence of a regular power source and prevent the discontinuity of daily activities. What is an Electric Generator? It’s a device that receives mechanical energy from an external source and converts it to electrical energy. It’s important to know that a generator does

Time Delay Fuse vs Fast Acting Fuse

A fuse is a protective device that keeps electrical appliances safe in the event of a surge of electrical current. They come in various types. One category differs from the other in terms of functions and response time to a peak of electricity. Depending on these features, you can divide them into time delay and fast acting fuses. You have to have a clear concept of time delay fuse vs first acting fuse to know their purposes and uses. What Is a Time Delay Fuse? Some electrical devices need a high inrush of current to start their function. These time-delay

New Electricity Innovation is to Change the Way We Receive Electricity

Do you know the traveling speed of electricity? It’s about 186,000 miles per second! For this reason, it has to be used almost at the same it is generated unless you can store it somewhere. It seems that only batteries can solve this challenge of matching production and the demand for supply. And, you will need big-size batteries for storing electricity produced at power grids and plants. Fortunately, we are not far away from a solution! New electricity innovation can extend the shelf life of electrical power and change the way we receive electricity. Many electronics run on batteries these

Some Interesting Facts about the Electric Grid

We take electricity for granted  and anyone hardly becomes aware of it unless there is a power outage or a short circuit. Does it seem fascinating that it provides the incessant supply of light, heat, and energy everywhere? Do you know how this power is delivered to the consumer level? Here comes the electric grid! It supplies electric current all over the United States and touches the lives of millions of people. With this in mind, won’t it be riveting to know some interesting facts about electric grid in the United States? What is an Electric Grid? On a basic

Scientists Study the Possibilities of Evaporation as a Renewable Energy

With an increasing need to rely on natural resources for energy, scientists are exploring every avenue. Currently they are examining the possibilities of harnessing the power of evaporation into a renewable energy. This option is being further explored by scientists at Columbia University in New York. Read on to find out more about their research. Can Evaporation Provide the Necessary Power? Studies show that the total power available from evaporation driven engines could be up to 325 gigawatts. That’s more than 69% of the United States electrical energy generation rates. That means that energy generated from evaporation could provide powers

Electrical Supply: What is a Time Delay Fuse?

A time delay fuse is a special kind of fuse that allows electrical surge for a short time before it actually blows. Due to its special design, it can bear electricity overload in a repeated cycle for a short period without blowing. Its ability to carry momentary overloads makes it an integral part of many systems that use a high inrush of inductive load. Regular models are useless in this case because they do not allow any power surge beyond their amp rating. How Does a Time Delay Fuse Work? The design of the time delay and regular fuses are

Differences Between Alternating and Direct Current

When we think of how electrical current travels, we think of alternating and direct current. Quite simply, in a direct current, electricity flows in one direction while alternating current changes direction periodically which also reverses the voltage in these circuits. However, the differences between alternating and direct current also dictate what applications they are used in, how the currents are generated and more. Read on to find out more. Generating Alternating Current In exploring the differences between alternating and direct current, let’s first take a look at alternating current and specifically how it is generated. AC current is produced with
