GFIs like these draw about 2.5 watts. day. In a grid-connected home, this kind of power draw is no big deal. Except, of course, when it is multiplied by the millions of other homes supporting similar phantom loads. In the United States alone, phantom loads from televisions, VCRs, microwave ovens, GFIs, and other devices consume as much as five large nuclear power plants produce, each with a 1 billion watt generating capacity. In a solar-electric home, minuscule phantom loads can be a killer. In...

I started cleaning up and testing the Enertech unit. I plugged in the motor and got no response. I cracked open the motor case, and to my surprise, the motor windings were fried I checked with a local motor repair shop and they said they could rewind the motor for US 300. I dropped off the motor and went back to work on rebuilding the gearbox. New bearings and seals were ordered and installed. After some discussions with Mick Sagrillo, I started to have some doubts about the strength of my 50...

How to Choose an Inverter for an Independent Energy System

The inverter is one of the most important and most complex components in an independent energy system. To choose an inverter, you don't have to understand its inner workings, but you should know some basic functions, capabilities, and limitations. This article gives you some of the information you'll need to choose the right inverter and use it wisely. Independent electric energy systems are untethered from the electrical utility grid. They vary in size from tiny yard lights to remote homes,...

Air can be either an insulator or a conductor. For example, air is used as an insulator to slow down the transmission of heat in homes. It is the dead air space in fiberglass batt insulation that does the work. But air is also a cheap and relatively effective conductor of heat in electric motors, vehicle cooling systems, and...
