110 volts or 12 volts on your pocketbook?

110 volts or 12 volts on your pocketbook

I have tried everything that I can think

of to prove

that alternative energy

should be our future.

Except science.

This time let us try a little science,

very little because I am not a scientist.

Therefore, I am using these two links.

Electrical current is measured in amperes


Amperage is the amperage that a light bulb is designed to operate

at under normal conditions


At the voltage, the bulb was designed to operate at

Almost all bulbs

have their power wattage

reported on them,

For example

the bulbs can be 40, 60, 100, etc Watts.

This number is


used by the bulb.

The power consumes,


is related to the operating voltage,



the current drawn, I, as the following:

Power (P) = Voltage (V) x Current (I)

So to find the current drawn,

simply divide the power by the operating voltage.

In the United States,

most household appliances work at 110 Volts.


the calculation is divided the Wattage by 110.

For example:

A 40- Watts bulb draws 0.36 Amps to operate.

A 60 -Watts bulb draws 0.54 Amps to operate.

An 80 -Watts bulb draws 0.72 Amps to operate.

A 100-Watts bulb draws 0.90 Amps.


A 12-volt light bulb runs off a battery, solar, wind


Other alternative power (Watts).

I = P/V or I = 100 W/6 V = 16.67 amps

What would happen if you use a 12-volt battery and a 12-volt light bulb to get 100 watts of power?

I = 100 W/12 V = 8.33 amps

In an electrical system, increasing either the current or the voltage will result in higher power.

Let us say you have a system

with a 6-volt light bulb

hooked up to a 6-volt battery.

The power output of the light bulb is 100 watts.

Using the equation I = P/V,

we can calculate how much current in amps

would be required to get 100 watts out of this 6-volt bulb.

You know that

P = 100 W,


V = 6 V.

Therefore, you can rearrange the equation to solve for

I –

and substitute in the numbers

I = P/V or I = 100 W/6 V = 16.67 amps

What would happen if you use a 12-volt battery


a 12-volt light bulb

to get 100 watts of power?

I = 100 W/12 V = 8.33 amps

So this system produces the same power,

but with half the current.

There is an advantage that comes from using

less current to make the same amount of power.

The resistance in electrical wires consumes power, and the power consumed increases as the current going through the wires increases.

You can see how this happens by doing a little rearranging of the two equations.

What you need is an equation for power in terms of resistance and current.

Let’s rearrange the first equation:

I = V/R can be restated as V = I*R

Now you can substitute the equation for V into the other equation:

P = V*I substituting for V we get P = I*R*I, or P = I2*R

What this equation tells you is that the power consumed by the wires increases if the resistance of the wires increases (for instance, if the wires get smaller or are made of a less conductive material).

But it increases dramatically if the current going through the wires increases.

So using a higher voltage to reduce the current can make electrical systems more efficient.

The efficiency of electric motors also improves at higher voltages.

This improvement in efficiency is what is driving the automobile industry to adopt a higher voltage standard. Carmakers are moving toward a 42-volt electrical system from

the current 12-volt electrical systems.

The electrical demand on cars has been steadily increasing since the first cars were made.

The first cars didn’t even have electrical headlights; they used oil lanterns.

Today cars have thousands of electrical circuits, and future cars will demand even more power.

The change to 42 volts will help cars meet the greater electrical demand placed on them without having to increase the size of wires and generators to handle the greater current.

Lebanon —

Even in the morning’s chilly breezes and barren late winter landscape, Friday’s bright sunshine wasn’t going to waste at Pride’s Corner Farm on Waterman Road.

“We’re getting 25 percent of the farm’s electricity needs from the solar panels,”

said Mark Sellew, owner of the 400-acre plant farm.

“They’re already hooked up to the grid.”

With local, state and federal lawmakers and other officials on hand, Sellew celebrated the recent installation of 725 solar panels atop a new open-sided greenhouse that will be busy this spring with 100 workers cleaning, tagging and packing 2,200 varieties of nursery plants for shipping to privately owned garden centers, wholesalers and landscape contractors throughout the Northeast.

Before cutting a silky green ribbon to mark the occasion, Sellew credited the partnership of federal and state agencies, including the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Connecticut Resource Conservation and Development Area, the Connecticut Farm Energy Program and the state Department of Agriculture, with helping make the project happen.

Sitting atop a two-acre concrete pad, the metal-frame greenhouse was built with a $600,000 USDA grant and $1.6 million of the farm’s own funds, Sellew said. The panels will produce 240 kilowatts of electricity, or about 296,600 kilowatts annually, said Eric Virkler, project manager for Earthlight, the Ellington-based company that designed the greenhouse and installed the panels.

While some of the power produced by the panels will be used for lights and conveyor belts inside the greenhouse, most will be sent to a nearby inverter building, where it will be distributed to the rest of the farm, Virkler said.

One of the unique aspects of the design, he said, is that half the roof is covered with polycarbonate sheets that allow light into the structure, while the other half are metal sheets that can support the weight of the panels.

Amanda Fargo-Johnson, program coordinator for the Connecticut Farm Energy Program, said the Pride’s Corner solar project is the second largest renewable energy project supported by the organization, but more are in the works. The energy program, part of the USDA, provided technical assistance for the project.

Among speakers at the brief ceremony was Emily Boushee, spokeswoman for Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn. She praised the new greenhouse as a facility that will improve efficiency for workers by providing a shaded space protected from the rain, while also producing renewable power.

Rep. Joe Courtney, D-2nd District, said the project is one of many examples of how solar energy is growing in Connecticut.

“Connecticut is never going to drill for oil or mine coal, but we have a burgeoning solar industry,”

he said.

Battered Beaches:


Matthew eroded nearly two million cubic feet of sand and dunes in a matter of hours. Estimates pieced together over the past four months indicate repairing that damage — replacing just the sand the hurricane eroded, not any previous critical erosion —

could cost nearly $50 million.

Another $32 million


may be spent to repair and protect State Road A1A north and south of Flagler Beach, not including an already planned federal project.

Restoring coastal erosion from Matthew could cost $50 million

Solar power mobile water purifier (in the media)


As seen in the media every time there is a disaster like a hurricane of tornado, Solar Power Water Purifiers give the distressed clean drinking water.

This little ministry with a little solar powered filtration system helps people get drinking water.

If this works and it has been working for years, why not bigger systems also running on solar power, provide every, water drinking creatures of God (plants and animals), clean, clear, safe, drinking water?


Since 2004, AMM has been bringing water purification systems to 40 countries worldwide with over 800 units deployed.  The Air Mobile Rescuer water purifier is an amazing, life saving tool, at a mere 20 pounds, it can produce up to 25 gallons of pure water every hour, which is enough drinking water for 500 people per day!  A very powerful ministry has grown from using this unit to help save lives and share God’s love and compassion with those in great need.

Rooftop Unit Efficiency


Why do I push ‘leaving the grid?

Back in the late 1980’s

I tried to get a Patten on a good workable energy plan.

Health and then family problems put a hold on that.


A good plan to think about

now that this government

is bringing the country back,

would be for a start

(New Home Building).

As long as you are building, buildings,

why not add solar panels to the roof,

ones that always follow the sun.

While you are at it


digging the ground for your new building,


why not dig a hole for a

(Hot-water storage tank)?

One more thing you might consider at the same time

is wiring the building for a solar transformer

to power as many appliances as possible

with your solar panels?

About the only thing that I can think of to not power with solar,

might be your Air Conditioners.


this might also be possible now?


They do make a 12 volt AC compressor.


If you added another tank

(top of tank 4′)

in the ground,


that holds water would be ground temperature

(about 55 degrees)

and believe it or not

this would cool your building.
