PV Industry Production grew 51% last year

http://www.renewableenergyworld.com/rea/news/article/2010/09/solar-cell-production-climbs-to-another-record-in-2009  One needs to ask the question: "Why is the ANC delaying the introduction of renewable energy in South Africa when it is growing so quickly and providing so much employment and reducing peoples cost of living?"

SA officially ends support to PBMR (Pebble Bed Modular Reactor)

See Engineering News. If the R10 Billion had been invested in Solar Water Heaters, we would have 1 million R10,000 Solar Water Heaters already displacing 2 GW of electrical energy. Instead we have nothing. Will the weakest link please leave the room? We don't have much more time for foolish money-spending programs. The time for 21st Century thinking is NOW. Read Free Life On Earth if you haven't already read it.

Do we need retirement funding and a cost of living?

Can we live a Free Life On Earth without Retirement Funding and without a Cost of Living for ourselves and for our environment? I believe we can: see http://mypowerstation.wordpress.com/article/free-life-on-earth-213ev1gehazzh-1/.

David's new year message 5771: Free Life On Earth

Greetings my friends,

I have written a Rosh Hashanah and Eid Mubarak message which is applicable to my Jewish and Muslim friends at this time of year, and is also applicable to all my friends and everyone I know and/or who know me. It is here.

It deals with my philosophy and shows how we can live in this life, not be apathetic or dead, reduce our carbon footprint, reduce our cost of living for ourselves and this earth and think differently. Enjoy. Grab a cup of tea or coffee as it is 8 pages. There are bits in bold in each paragraph in case you'd like to have a quick scan.

Sorry it is so long, but I haven't written for a long time and there is a lot to catch up on. I have recreated myself at MyPowerStation. You can read about how it happened on my PR page.

The order of importance of the highlighting in the text is yellow, then green, then purple.

The article refers to Genesis and Deuteronomy and our Constitution and President Jacob Zuma and Helen Zille and Dan Plato and you and me. It also refers to R100 Billion and shows us how we can think about such big numbers and what we can do with R100,000,000,000 if we decide not to build a coal powered power station and spend the money differently. We have to assume that if the government can find R100,000,000,000 to build a power station, they they (we) can find the money and use it for purposes that reduce our cost of living both for ourselves and our planet. We have to further assume that if our government ministers can think about the value of One Hundred Thousand Million Rand then so can we.

I wish you all a content 5771 or 2010/2011 and may you "retire" by at least 5% in the next year, ie worry about the future 5% less. If we seek to retire by 5% per annum for 20 years, then in 20 years time we will be retired, ie we won't need to worry about the future. If you are confused then read the Knol.

Shalom Aleichem / Salaam Aleikum / Namaste / Peace (of mind, health, body and soul) to You
Your friend, David

Rechargeable Batteries just added to mypowerstation.biz

We just added the Hahnel batteries and battery charger to our My Power Station store.

This press release added 3rd September 2010 and updated 10th September 2010. We didn't like the first Hahnel charger we found as it didn't show when the batteries were full. We have now find a more advanced Hahnel charger and have tested it and are happy with it.

David Lipschitz, Energy Expert at MyPowerStation, says that he chose these batteries and battery charger for the following reasons:

The charger uses the latest technology and includes a microchip for optimal charging and battery life. The charger charges AA (R6-Mignon) and AAA (Micro) batteries. You can find a product manual here.

The charger comes with a 240 Volt mains adapter and a 12 Volt car adapter.

Supplied with 4 High Power Rechargeable AA 1.25V 2500mAh (or higher) Ni-MH Batteries. If you buy our kit with the Efergy and batteries and battery charger, you get 8 AA batteries and 8 AAA batteries.

Charge time about 3 to 4 hours depending on battery type and capacity.

The batteries are made from Nickel Metal Hydride which is a reasonably clean technology for recycling and proper disposal.

Hahnel batteries are designed in Cork, Ireland.
Here is a quote from http://www.batteryuniversity.com/partone-20.htm: "Although nickel-metal-hydride is considered environmentally friendly, this chemistry is also being recycled. The main derivative is nickel, which is considered semi-toxic. nickel-metal-hydride also contains electrolyte that, in large amounts, is hazardous. If no disposal service is available in an area, individual nickel-metal-hydride batteries can be discarded with other household wastes. If ten or more batteries are accumulated, the user should consider disposing of these packs in a secure waste landfill."

Hahnel is an independent manufacturer of batteries, power adapters, chargers and accessories for cameras and notebooks. Hahnel’s products are designed for most major manufacturers and models and offer an affordable alternative to brand name products.

Hahnel was originally a German company, but is now based in Cork, Ireland. In 2008 the company celebrated fifty years of business.

Efergy e2 Wireless Electricity Meter Product Manuals

We have loaded a Efergy e2 Wireless Electricity Meter technical data sheet and setup instructions to ISSUU.

Note that the 3 phase Efergy is the same as the single phase Efergy. It just needs to have its voltage set to 380 Volts and it needs 3 sensors instead of 1 sensor.

The standard kit comes with one sensor and costs R899. The extra two sensors make the kit R1199. Prices include VAT and delivery in South Africa.
