What Kinds of Solar Power Incentives are Available in the U.S.?

*Note – This is a guest blog post from Shannon Bell from ResidentialSolarPanels.org.  Thanks Shannon!  I’ve always wondered how government credits work with residential solar panels, now I know.

Over the years, you have seen your power bills increase for a variety of reasons. Sources are inconsistent, and methods to generate power are becoming more expensive. Ultimately, many of the resources we use are non-renewable.

Coal, gas and oil are finite commodities. To encourage people to reduce thei

Google Refuses Chinese Censorship! [GO GOOGLE]

Well, it’s been a great day since I just received my new Google Nexus One phone, the first “official” phone that Google has started selling as of last week. Btw, this phone is freakin’ JESUS-AWESOME, I will have a bunch of videos on that soon.

Gamer Tries to Build Nuclear Reactor at Home, FBI Came Around to Play

Check out this cool biological containment art from Philip Ross. It’s a hydroponic garden which allow just enough light using LEDs for the plants to survive but do not grow bigger. Very interesting.

Wind Power from Highways

Here’s a great concept for re-using the wind generated from cars racing on the highways. Great idea! Save earth and peace!

Average vehicle speeds on the valley highways are approximately 70 mph. Using average annual wind speeds of 10 mph as a baseline, each single wind turbine will produce 9,600KwH of energy, annually (enough to fully power my 700 s.f. apartment). This power production estimate will increase exp

Google buys a European country Luxemburg for 37 billion dollars! Wow, I wonder what country they will be buying next. Well, eventually a lot of small countries will have to be renamed to Googleburg, Googlece, Googland, Googrea, Googpan, Googmerica…  This is much greater than Google buying a search algorithm from an Israeli student.

This is what Larry Page told us about it: “We were looking for a new place for our Eu
