During 2014, nuclear power plants in the United States reported setting a record for having a capacity factor average of 91.8%, which is the highest level on record. This was due in part to the amount of time reactors experienced down time for outages of the reactors due to repairs.

The plants are credited with shorter outages due to refueling and maintenance, and experienced fewer overall outages. Also, power usage was increased during December of 2014 to a level of 98.9%.



Just What is Renewable Energy Exactly?

Renewable energy is fast becoming a staple in today’s modern language.  For hundreds of years we used our resources to produce energy, and those resources are slowly becoming in short supply.

Hence, the term “renewable” has found its way into all discussions regarding the environment and the production of energy.

It is usually defined as energy that develops from resources which can be restored or replenished during a human’s lifetime such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, waves and geothermal heat. Renewable energy can replace the more usual fuels in areas such as electricity generation, hot water, space heating, fuel for vehicles, and the more rural off-grid energy services.




Natural Gas Power Plant Faces Opposition from Locals

Natural Gas Power Plant

The proposal for a natural gas powered power plant in Jessup Maryland is facing a community that is divided over new jobs versus environmental impacts.

At a time when alternative fuel ideas are sparking much thought, many share a concern that natural gas will potentially affect the environment. Nuclear based power plants have faced this same type of opposition.

The proposed plant would be constructed on 80 acres of former coal mining land in the industrial park of the community. Invenergy, the Chicago company building the plant will utilize natural gas to create electricity, and has indicated that the project will create tax revenue for the city and generate hundreds of jobs.

Ampy Motion Power Backup Energy

Talk about innovative backup energy. Ampy, a system that will store battery power by converting our physical movements into energy and then using it for charging items with motion power, is the latest and the greatest.

The technology is simple, and involves the body’s unlimited supply of energy to substitute for plug-in power. 

Many of today’s items such as the smartphone, laptop, and others rely on a battery to function. Once the battery power is gone, a plug-in is required to charge the battery and furnace power to the item.

The Ampy system requires no plugs or power; just your everyday movement. For example, 10,000 steps will provide 3 hours of phone life. Joggers and bikers can produce up to 9 hours of power.



Generators & Not World Powers Solve Energy Crisis

Power GeneratorsUsing their Interruptible Load Program, businesses in the Philippines will be authorized to use power generators during a probable energy crisis during 2015. The action taken by their House energy committee opens the door for lower power fees for consumers of power and a drop in power requirements during the projected power crisis.

It is estimated that the power crises will occur during two weeks of April, 2015.

Although additional fees will be charged for those using power generators, the fees will be less than those charged for power usage during the potential energy crisis, which is welcome news for businesses.

Two Russian Physicists believe that Tesla’s program to transmit power from a tower, wirelessly, is a credible one and have taken steps to resurrect the plan.

Though not a proven theory during Tesla’s lifetime, the scientists believe in the program and have set out to prove it.

The studies have begun, and if correct, the tower could transmit power through the airwaves, and provide clean energy. This worldwide energy system could provide power efficiently to millions of users.

Tesla, deemed a polarizing scientist even now 70 years after his death, left behind very detailed notes on his design of the Magnifying Transmitter System and its operation principles.

A new record of renewable energy use was set by Germany. Recently it was announced that of the country’s electricity demand, 75% is furnished by renewable energy sources. The usage of wind and solar to provide energy is credited with a large portion of renewable energy, and electricity prices fell into the negative zone.

Germany’s reliance on and production of renewable energy is at least double that of the U.S. Renewal generators in Germany provided an estimated 40 billion kilowatt hours of electricity during the first quarter of 2014, meeting almost 30% of the country’s demand for electrical power.



Storms Pound West Coast - Power Outages Abound

Winter Storms - Power Plus Generators

The drought-ridden west coast suddenly became drenched and damaged and included massive power outages up and down the state caused by wind, which downed power lines, trees, and homes and landslides taking down power poles.

Over 200,000 residences and businesses suffered power outages that may last days for some. Priorities for first responders are to save lives, rescue people, and clear the roads. Then their task becomes removing debris that is blocking access to power facilities. So power restoration is not at the top of their priority list.

It’s been over five years since the area suffered anywhere near this type of devastating storm. Recent fires that shaved the hills produced landslides that virtually covered entire neighborhoods. A tornado even appeared in the middle of a neighborhood and left behind a path of destruction.

Airports shut down, roads were closed and downtown San Francisco essentially closed down. Winds were clocked at over 100mph in some areas. Schools and Universities were closed down. Businesses who stayed open to assist their customers with supplies that sold out in hours. Some say it was worst storm in 20 years.
