Switching to cleaner, solar energy not only guarantees a lighter conscience but can save homeowners hundreds of dollars on their electricity bill. But slapping a few solar panels on your roof doesn't always mean money saved.
I love overpaying my electricity bill. Said nobody. Ever. It's no secret that solar panels can help reduce your electricity bill and at times, eliminate it. But how much can you really save by installing a home solar system?
Going solar often requires a little legwork – like finding a reliable installer or figuring out the financing – though, SunPower makes it simple.
The base of what will be the world's biggest reactor has been put in position.
A new scientific paper suggests that hydrogen fuel cells, able to convert chemical energy to electrical energy, could soon be used to power "aircraft, vehicles and portable devices."
President Donald Trump's latest comments about wind power are being compared to Don Quixote's famous fear of windmills.
It is hoped the nuclear fusion device will help scientists overcome a key problem in harnessing plasma inside tokamaks.
The team at Los Alamos National Laboratory will fire "supersonic jets of ionized gas" at a chamber to compress fusion fuel.
"This report really lays out what are the set of measures that could get us all the way there--technically feasible, proven measures--and it actually goes a step further by saying what they might cost and the return they might generate."
Scientists were able to electrolyze seawater for up to 1,000 hours and at the same current density used in industrial electrolyzers.
Rather than wasting plastics, cold plasma pyrolysis can be used to recover valuable materials, which can be sent directly back into industry.
Being able to control plasma that is hotter than the Sun is notoriously difficult.
A new material could make fuel cells less expensive and is so thin it could be used for structural parts of the car, too.
Floating solar fuels rig can produce fuel that's currently used in NASA's rockets.
'You can solve cost, climate and public health all at the same time,' says chief sustainability officer Melissa Lavinson.
Wind farms in Oklahoma, Iowa and South Dakota will help power Google's global operations.
The massive power pack will supply 3,000 homes
These synthetic structures could be made into glass or textiles that could absorb sunlight one day.
Fusion experts just found a way to heat plasma for fusion energy, moving mankind closer to this ultimate form of power.
Scientists find supervolcanoes potentially host huge reservoirs of lithium in their ancient deposits.
The planet is now in a resource deficit for the rest of the year.
Scientists may have solved one major problem that comes up when building a fusion reactor—runaway electrons.
The U.K. has cleaner beaches and natural protection and shouldn't risk the environment by leaving.
