Tesla, Australia To Provide Free Solar Panels And Batteries To 50,000 Homes,Elon Musk’s Tesla, in partnership with South Australian government officials, announced their free provisions of solar panels and batteries to at least 50,000 homes in South Australia on Sunday. They are turning the solar-enabled homes into the “world’s biggest virtual power plant” that could lower energy bills by 30 percent. In 2017, Elon Musk built the world’s most extensive Li-ion battery and has now been operating and providing energy to more than 30,000 houses in South Australia. This project aims to resolve the power outages in the state. South [More]

After my look at Surviving Mars lots of people called out the game for using wind turbines for energy generation on the surface of Mars. A planet which has an atmospheric pressure of less than 1% of Earth’s, which would surely render such air driven devices as useless. However, it turns out that wind power is viable on Mars, even if solar remains as the best option during daylight hours. Thanks to Tyler Driscoll for making a much better video thumbnail.

WindPal is a practical solution for outdoor lovers to charge their devices. It’s a lightweight (less than 1 kg), portable wind turbine that generates power. The kit is equipped with sail, webbing and tent stakes for the respective upper end and lower end attachments, and a generator, and it can be assembled in less than one minute. The tough and durable turbine uses aluminum casing, while the sail is made with a light aluminum-nylon blend. The WindPal also offers an IP66 waterproof protection and can achieve a 5V 1A power output.

If we can capture energy from the sun, why don’t we just put solar panels in space?

Amidst all of the Brexit backlash, terrorist attacks, and the deaths of Sirs John Hurt and Roger Moore, there was one shining beacon of hope in the UK: the environment. The BBC reported that the UK achieved its “greenest year for electricity ever.” Because of growing interest in renewable energy sources Britain broke 13 clean energy records in 2017. In April, the country had its first 24-hour period free from coal power since 1840, that is, since the Industrial Revolution. The streak continued two months later/ Wind, nuclear, and solar power generated more UK power than gas and coal combined. [More]
—Solar panels are often thought of having the biggest impact during warm months, but turns out they work just as well in the winter.
