New Paper for Home Powers Printed Edition

For the last couple of years, some of you may have noticed that the paper we have been using has only ten percent postconsumer waste. For some strange reason, the paper mills here in the US are not making a high postconsumer coated paper. The mills say there's no demand. Well, I've been demanding, but to no avail. I've found a 50 postconsumer, elemental chlorine free totally chlorine free (ECF TCF) paper, made by Stora, a German paper company. We have not tried paper from overseas before...

We program the inverter by DIP switches on the inverter's left side. It has settings for battery type, battery capacity, battery temperature (with an optional temperature probe), 117 VAC service rating, and load sensing. We had no problems programming the PROsine 2.5 to match our particular system. Once the PROsine was properly installed, we put it into our normal operating regime. We used the inverter to power a variety of 117 VAC loads including computers, a laser printer, various...

Forrest Cook This article describes a low power voltmeter circuit that can be used with alternative energy systems that run on 12 or 24 volt battery banks. The voltmeter is an expanded scale type that indicates small voltage steps over a 10 to 16 volt range for 12 V batteries and over a 22 to 32 volt range for 24 volt batteries. It is possible to set the meter to read equal steps across a variety of upper and lower voltages. Power consumption can be as low as 14 mW when...
