VisitAncient Lights Popular Last Update: Jul. 3, 2009 9:53am,UTC
Description:
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In English law, ancient lights or a right to light is a form of easement that gives a long-standing owner of a building with windows a right to maintain the level of illumination. They are most usually acquired under the Prescription Act 1832.

In effect, the owner of a building with windows that have received natural daylight for 20 years or more is entitled to forbid any construction or other obstruction that would deprive him or her of that illumination. Neighbours cannot build anything that would block the light without permission. The owner may build more or larger windows but cannot enlarge his new windows before the new period of 20 years has expired. It is also possible for a right to light to exist if granted expressly by deed, or granted impliedly, for example under the rule in Wheeldon v. Burrows.

Once a right to light exists the owner of the right is entitled to "sufficient light according to the ordinary notions of mankind": Colls v. Home & Colonial Stores Ltd (1904). Courts rely on expert witnesses to define this term. Since the 1920s, experts have used a method proposed by Percy Waldram to assist them with this. Waldram suggested that ordinary people require 1 foot-candle of illuminance (approximately 10 lux) for reading and other work involving visual discrimination. This equates to a sky factor (similar to the daylight factor) of 0.2%. Today, Waldram's methods are increasingly subject to criticism[1][2] and the future of expert evidence in rights to light cases is currently the subject of much debate within the surveying profession.[3]

After World War II, owners of buildings could gain new rights by registering properties that had been destroyed in bombings and the period was temporarily increased to 27 years.

In the centre of London, near Chinatown and Covent Garden, particularly in back alleyways, signs saying "Ancient Lights" can be seen marking individual windows.

Under United States tort law, in Fontainebleau Hotel Corp. v. Forty-Five Twenty-Five, Inc. (1959) the Florida Appellate Court stated that the "ancient lights" doctrine has been unanimously repudiated in the United States.

Description:
An efficient solar heating panel can contribute significantly to standard of living by improving quality of shelter. A solar-powered pump can provide water for improved agricultural productivity and to lighten the burden of those who currently hand- (or head-) carry water from source to home. Solar refrigeration can provide safe storage for food and medicine where there is no infrastructure to support any other means of refrigeration. Solar-powered air-conditioning can cool homes, classrooms, and clinics where it would otherwise be unaffordable; and it can save energy, eliminate pollution, and reduce costs in already-developed areas.

VisitEnphase Micro-inverter Popular Last Update: Oct. 3, 2008 5:42pm,UTC
Description:
The Traditional Approach
An inverter is a power converter that converts direct current (DC) into alternating current (AC). In a solar module installation, the inverter performs two key functions: it performs the DC to AC conversion and it optimizes the modules' Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT). Traditional solar energy installations deploy a single centralized inverter to convert the DC output from multiple solar modules into AC power.

The Enphase Approach
The Enphase Micro-inverter system is a fully integrated device that converts the DC output of a single solar module into grid-compliant AC power. This integrated system maximizes energy harvest, increases system reliability, and simplifies design, installation and management.

One of the appealing aspects of the solar thermal area is that "garage inventors" can make meaningful advances. Some of the factors that make it possible to keep coming up with new ideas and innovations in this centuries old field are:

Innovative ways of combining collection, storage, insulation, and distribution of solar energy

New ways to integrate solar features with architectural features

Opportunities provided by new materials

Opportunities provided by increasing prices in conventional energy sources

Opportunities provided by the pollution consequences of conventional fuels

Solar Energy Facts-The Trombe Wall

Trombe was the name of a French engineer who developed the Trombe wall, which forms a large solar thermal collector. A typical Trombe wall is 8 to 16 inches thick masonry faced with a double layer of glass which is placed a few inches from the wall to create a small airspace. The wall absorbs heat from sunlight passing through the glass. The heat is stored in the wall and conducted slowly inward through the masonry. In the northern hemisphere of course we want oiur wall to face south for access to direct sunlight. A dark surface on the side facing the sun facilitates heat absorption.

Solar energy facts show that the wall can be made of concrete, brick, rammed earth, or adobe. This is a technique that can be used for a new building or a solar retrofit. If it is designed right, this method of passive solar can cut down significantly on heating and cooling energy demands. The sun begins to heat the wall about midmorning, and continues to heat it all day. When the sun goes down the wall radiates its heat to the room inside. Rooms heated by a Trombe wall feel more comfortable because of the gentle infrared heat given off by the wall's surface.

Builders can use Trombe walls along with windows, eaves, and other design features, to achieve a balance of solar heating and cooling for a building's interior. Shading and vents to the outside can prevent the wall from gaining heat during the warmer months. A Trombe wall's performance is inhibited if the interior of the wall is not open to the room inside. For example, if shelves or cabinets are placed against the surface. Sometimes designers place projections on the inside wall to prevent bookshelves being placed against the wall. One of the things to remember when a Trombe wall is installed using adobe, rammed earth, concrete or other masonry, is that it may take a full heating season for the wall to dry out completely. The second season should show the true results.

Our solar energy facts lead us to the conclusion that a design including a Trombe wall is well worth consideration. This technique when combined with baseboard heating or even a small wood or gas stove is an excellent choice for new construction. A solar greenhouse including a Trombe wall is a viable option for a solar retrofit. Any good design will incorporate correct use of insulation. When I am ready to put up a new building, I will definitely include a Trombe wall as a part of the whole.

Some Photon Links
Photon-powered nanomotor transforms light directly into motion


“Light has energy,” said Friedman. “That you can’t argue with.” “More important,” said Kerzhanovich, “it has momentum.” “Therefore it has a force,” added Friedman. “You’re using the energy of light, and the force derived thereof, to transfer momentum of light energy to your vehicle, in order to propel the spacecraft. Basically your spacecraft, your solar sail, looks like a sail, but it really is a mirror. And so it’s reflecting the light, and that reflection is where the momentum transfer occurs.”


"In 2010, NIF will focus the intense energy of 192 giant laser beams on a BB-sized target filled with hydrogen fuel — fusing, or igniting, the hydrogen atoms' nuclei in the world's first controlled thermonuclear reaction.
This is the same fusion energy process that makes stars shine and provides the life-giving energy of the sun."
The National Ignition Facility


"Owing to the pioneer works of Einstein and Planck at the beginning of the 20 century, we are able to calculate the energy of one photon today."

Title: About the calculation of the photon power Authors:
Reissig, Sergej


The Bible says God is not human. God is light. If God is not human and is light,
God must be photon.

Jesus is the Son of God Or Son Of Photon and the light of the world
making Jesus photon.

We are created in the image and likeness of God who is photon
making us photon.

Jesus and God are entangled photons meaning they are one.

The cosmic goal is to get us to be one with God by the same entanglement...."
