Energy myths exposed!

Friday, February 06, 2009

We’ve been on a Power Trip all week to talk about the future of energy. Today we’re digging down into some of the water-cooler wisdom surrounding energy use. Are cloth diapers really more energy efficient than disposables? Does shutting off the lights really waste more energy than just leaving them on? We’re here to debunk myths—or maybe to confirm them. To help us do that is Matt McDermott, an alternative energy writer for TreeHugger.com and Planet Green.com.

Power has been a very big problem and costly for the people. I have started business under the name of <a href="http://www.eternalsun.nl">Eternal Sun</a> which provides <a href="http://www.eternalsun.nl">Solar Panel Testing</a>, <a href="http://www.eternalsun.nl">Solar Testing</a> equipments and <a href="http://www.eternalsun.nl">Artificial Sunlight</a> lamps Internationally.

I know this is a late post, but we bought a new dishwasher recently and it is my understanding that I need to use a drying agent to supplement heat that has been taken out of the drying process to improve energy efficiency. Well, there's one drying agent that seems to have cornered the market on these 'energy efficient' dishwashers, and I'll be darned if I'm going to buy into that. So what if my glasses have spots!
