Clarian Power, a start up from Seattle, is on a mission to help homeowners everywhere generate energy from renewable energy. The company developed a proprietary power module that plugs into an existing outlet. In other words, their Sunfish solar product, which is slated for retail availability next year, installs without a dedicated electrical panel and does not require contractors, installers, or additional wires.
Let’s just say you need to know how much power a certain device is using. You can do that with this new product from Belkin. Conserve Insight, available for pre-order on Amazon for $29.99, was designed to help consumers conserve energy. The energy monitor shows you how much a device costs in watts, dollars, and carbon dioxide using preloaded or custom rate information. Belkin also has three other Conserve gadgets available for pre-order should you have the need: Smart AV, Valet, and Socket.
If you’re looking to make the switch from incandescent to LED lighting, now may be a good time. The Home Depot struck a deal with the Lighting Science Group Corporation and is the exclusive seller of an affordable line of ECOSMART LED products. One bulb in the product line, the A19 LED 40-watt equivalent, sells for $19.97 each.
