The Light Bulb Moment: Understanding the Advantages of LED Lighting

In past years, incandescent and fluorescent lighting was the steadfast option for commercial buildings. Although these lights ultimately achieve the goal of providing ample lighting in large spaces and are energy efficient, they are slightly more expensive to utilize than traditional lighting solutions. But because of its potential payoff benefits, LED lighting is a great alternative lighting option. Many companies are quickly making the switch to LED lighting because they are energy efficient, long lasting, and less damaging. Below, we will dive deeper into the advantages of switching to LED lighting.

The Outlook of STEM Programs for Kids

STEM, or science, technology, engineering, and math, is a booming industry in the world that is only getting larger year after year. STEM programs and applications are responsible for the technology we have today. Without the study of STEM, we would not have the sustainable energy sources, the medical devices used in hospitals worldwide, or even the fuel-efficient cars developed to help improve fuel emissions. The more STEM is developed and nourished the better our outlook in the world is, and that begins with kids.

Principles of Sustainable Design: Solar Powered Water Heaters

Solar water heaters rely on the sun to heat the water provided to your home or building. These systems are reliable and relatively straightforward. At the core, a solar water heater is reliant on the solar collector and storage tank. The collector is an insulated box, usually with a dark interior, that contains tubes that allow for water flow. The solar collector catches the sun's rays and transforms them into heat. The storage tank simply holds the heated water. From here, the functionality of the solar water heater depends on the type.

What is a Zero Energy Building?

A Zero Energy Building, often seen abbreviated as ZEB, is a building where the amount of imported energy is offset by the amount of exported energy. The building can be a stand-alone building, part of a network, or even part of a larger campus or community. Typically, the amount of energy imported and exported is measured annually. The methodology used to import and export energy can come from various power sources.
