Olar Power: Solar Lights 'invisible' in the City
Olar Power: Solar Lights 'invisible' in the City
This novella may actually be a short novel by Joe Haldeman, called Buying Time, also known as The Long Habit of Living in some countries, and published in 1989. Dallas Barr, the protagonist, is one of an elite group of people who are both rich and entrepreneurial enough to repeatedly purchase the Stileman Process, a full physical rejuvenation, whose effects last a decade. The price for this treatment is all the wealth that the purchaser possesses, at a minimum of one million dollars, so those who are capable of acquiring a fortune every ten years get to experience a form of semi-eternal youth. Dallas' love interest, Maria Marconi, another long-lived member of this group, has opted not to purchase rejuvenation again and is due to die a natural death in a few years, but later, she receives a variant of the Stileman treatment whose effects last a natural lifetime, not just ten years. The existence of this treatment is the source of the conflict between Barr and the shadowy Steering Committee, who want to keep the Stileman process, with its deliberate limitations, as the only one available.Dallas and Maria flee off-planet during their work to keep ahead of their assassins, visiting several exotic locations on Earth and in the Solar System. I don't specifically recall if Mars is visited, though I believe so, but they definitely spend some time on an asteroid, which could be part of Jupiter's or Saturn's belt. Joe Haldeman is a published American author, which doesn't square with your memory, but the plot similarities were such that it was worth noting. Since the book is out of print, it is perhaps vaguely possible that someone posted it online.Although I rate my chances of getting this answered low, I thought I'd ask here.In 2005 - 2 years, I stumbled across a novella (might have been 100 pages in length) that was available online for anyone to read in full.Author: Not a professional sci-fi writer, possibly not even a published writer in any genre. In a bio note, he said he was recently retired, had traveled the world in a variety of jobs including government service, and was British (or maybe South African), in any case not American.Style: Deceptively simple, possibly the un-flashiest SF writing I'd ever seen. At the same time, avoided all the pitfalls that novice authors fall into. Sentences flowed, story moved along smoothly. Little use of metaphor. Philosophical musings refreshingly absent. Author does not get in the way of story, at all.Plot: Ah, here's where my memory sadly fails me. I'll try to piece together bits and pieces of the narrative.Starts in a holiday resort in East Africa (Kenya? Somalia?) While the narrator is on the beach barbecuing, someone tries to kill him and barely misses. Retreats to levitating vacation home (anti-gravity apparently has been solved). Seeking answers for who wants him dead and why, travels to Jerusalem. Population now ten times of present, apparently under UN administration. Decides to sign up with military. Is shipped to Mars.We learn that he is several hundred years old, and due for a total body replacement soon. Appears to be independently wealthy but not super rich. On Mars, gets into a tight spot and finds more questions than answers. Possibly a plot by a subversive faction to wrest power from the current one-world government. Moves on to outer solar system, to a moon of Jupiter (or Saturn?) where he is again nearly killed in the frozen wastes of the moon but escapes with his life. Enemies vanquished, he returns to Earth. Final scene is in a glitzy restaurant in a satellite orbiting Earth, where he and girlfriend (wife?) toast his success as stars twinkle through the glass roof and city lights blink from below.Was never able to find that novella again. Possibly the author had put it online in hopes of attracting a publisher, then withdrawn it when no one expressed interest.
The Importance of Solar Street Light Green Building Canada
What Ever Happened to the “Original Green Building”?"The skyscraper on its side.""A natural outgrowth of the earth.""Eden meets corporate America."At first glance, the former Weyerhaeuser Corporate Headquarters in Federal Way, Washington strikes the eye as more an enigma than a piece of architecture. Nestled within an idyllic meadow between two gentle hills, the terraced, low-slung building integrates almost seamlessly into its lush surroundings. English ivy envelops its stepped roof-line of monumental concrete slabs. The building appears to exist out of time, both unmistakably modern and ancient — a quality enhanced by the fact that, since 2016, the structure has been conspicuously vacant, taking on the air of an exceptionally well-maintained ruin. Not surprisingly, the photogenic site has become a popular destination for Instagrammers and (sub)urban explorers.Historian Nicholas Adams has characterized the Weyerhaeuser project (recently renamed Woodbridge Corporate Park) as "one of SOM's most significantly underappreciated buildings. " But though the project may appear an outlier among the firm's predominantly vertical icons of 20th-century architecture, the departure from a supposedly prevalent style speaks to the reality of a wide-ranging and adaptive portfolio. The building has had a profound influence on architecture in the Pacific Northwest and beyond, and its most distinctive elements have helped form the DNA of SOM's approach to sustainable design in the 21st century.Singular upon completion in 1971, the "original green building" was designed by SOM as a new home for the Weyerhaeuser forestry company. The "groundscraper" serves as the centerpiece of a bucolic, 260-acre site planned by acclaimed landscape architect Peter Walker, then a partner at Sasaki, Walker and Associates. The campus includes a botanical garden, bonsai museum, and publicly accessible running and hiking trails — uncommon features for a nominally private office park.Going beyond an eye-catching form, Bassett's and Walker's primary innovation was to interface the headquarters directly with the existing natural ecosystem around it. Originally slated to be designed by Gordon Bunshaft, the project migrated to SOM's San Francisco office. Weyerhaeuser's CEO, a Seattle native, was drawn to the environmental sensibilities of SOM partner Edward "Chuck" Bassett, as well as the prior work of Walker — whose forest-like design for Foothill College in Los Altos Hills, California, became a frame of reference for the new headquarters' ecological scope. According to Walker, the culture of SOM's West Coast practice created room for the kind of experimentation and ambition reflected in the emphatically horizontal headquarters. Bassett had been a protégé of famed modernist architect Eero Saarinen, whose collaborative and non-hierarchical teaching style had influenced the way Bassett managed his own studio (or, as Walker endearingly describes the group, "Chuck's brats.")Going beyond an eye-catching form, Bassett's and Walker's primary innovation was to interface the headquarters directly with the existing natural ecosystem around it. Though tree cover was pulled back slightly to create clear views of the building from nearby highways, the site was left largely unaltered. Necessary interventions were made with careful consideration for how to positively impact, even augment, the landscape. The headquarters building functions essentially as a dam, transforming the site's natural, shallow creek into a small lake at the building's northern end. The remaining outflow of this creek is diverted underneath the building toward the meadow to the south, irrigating wildflowers and native grasses. The building itself incorporates both passive environmental design principles and energy-saving technology. Extensive, floor-length windows let in ample natural sunlight, decreasing the need for artificial lighting. A heat recovery chiller — which stores heat discharged by the cooling system for later use — also provided substantial energy savings in comparison to other modernist buildings of its era. When first installed, this novel, all-electric temperature control system was actually so quiet that Weyerhaeuser found it necessary to pump "traditional" HVAC sounds through the building's intercom system to provide greater privacy to its employees.Embedded into every aspect of the design concept was a desire to elevate the everyday experience of Weyerhaeuser employees.SOM also collaborated with Knoll International, the office design firm, to implement one of the country's first-ever interior open-office plans. Flexible office space was becoming more common in Europe at the time, and Weyerhaeuser executives had traveled across the Atlantic to see the "open landscape" concept first-hand. Knoll helped develop a system of dividers and modular furniture that could create enclaves of collaboration or privacy, depending on what different teams within the company required.Embedded into every aspect of the design concept was a desire to elevate the everyday experience of Weyerhaeuser employees. The forest-like environs of the building's exterior were complemented with over 1,000 potted plants scattered about the office interior. The company spent more than $2 million on furniture and artwork — the latter personally curated by Bassett. Anticipating the kinds of amenities popular in workplaces today, the building included a cafeteria, library, barber shop, and gym. And, of course, there were connections to nature, including panoramic views of the surrounding landscape on each of the structure's five levels: on the northern-facing side, a placid lake; on the opposite end, Mount Rainier looming in the distance. As Walker recalls, "It was like there were no windows at all. Everyone in the room had some angle on this huge landscape. " The palatial scale and stunning beauty of the campus was meant to be enjoyed by all — an unusually egalitarian gesture for a mid-century corporate office building.The campus served Weyerhaeuser well for more than 40 years. But at a moment when its pioneering ethos started to really take root — notably among tech giants such as Facebook and Apple (Steve Jobs had apparently been an admirer of the Weyerhaeuser headquarters) — the company decided to leave its "groundscraper" for a new campus in Downtown Seattle. The company's pursuit of a new urban headquarters is symptomatic of more general economic pressures acting upon large office campuses, regardless of how green they may or may not be. The need to streamline headquarters functions — or to have greater access to the talent pools and cultural amenities often found in larger cities — has drawn many corporations away from suburban campuses to denser urban neighborhoods. This trend has challenged preservationists and developers alike to think creatively about the adaptive reuse of campuses like Woodbridge that hold special aesthetic or historical value. The Bell Labs Holmdel Complex in New Jersey, for instance — a once-renowned research and development facility designed by Eero Saarinen — had fallen into disrepair and faced the threat of demolition before its eventual redevelopment as a mixed-use "metroburb," replete with co-working spaces, a retail gallery, and public library.There is little doubt that the site will continue to serve as an evocative and highly popular backdrop for the occasional vintage car shoot or dog portrait.The fate of the former Weyerhaeuser campus, on the other hand, has not yet been resolved. The site, and SOM's iconic building with it, have been purchased by a developer seeking not only to find new tenants, but to potentially build infill structures. At the same time, a group of local activists have been working to preserve the beloved campus in its original state. Yet both sides of this debate agree that "the skyscraper on its side" holds the key to the site's future. Its proximity to both Seattle and Tacoma, and the airport they share, still make it an accessible and appealing location, while the building's open plan and unique exterior make it especially adaptable to a variety of uses. There is little doubt that it will continue to serve as an evocative and highly popular backdrop for the occasional engagement shoot, nature photo, or vintage car portrait.Meanwhile, SOM has continued to evolve many of the design principles that originated with Weyerhaeuser Corporate Headquarters. The building's signature green roof is evoked through projects ranging from the Greenwich Upper Academy School, to the JTI Headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland. Far surpassing the energy-saving heat recovery chiller available when the Weyerhaeuser headquarters was constructed, SOM has integrated cutting-edge sustainable building systems into everything from public schools to supertall high-rises. The firm has developed compelling research into high performance design, from structural biomimicry to water-purifying building facades. And, recognizing the innate connections between sustainability and a building's lifespan, SOM has led an increasing number of adaptive reuse projects, including those focused on some of its own legacy structures.The enduring appeal of the Weyerhaeuser campus — its spirit of experimentation and optimism about an ecological future — informs SOM's commitment to a more sustainable built environment. In the face of challenges brought about by a changing climate, the building remains an important lesson in how to make design choices that resonate throughout time — bridging human experience and the natural world. SOM would like to thank Peter Walker for lending his valuable insight to the development of this story.Read more about our approach to designing sustainable buildings, landscapes, cities and regions:The Making of New York's Greenest SchoolAn education in building a sustainable urban futuremedium.comReasons to be Hopeful on Earth DayGreat challenges are ahead, but so are great possibilities. medium. comSilicon Valley's Watershed MomentThe region's plan to recycle wastewater and restore the environmentmedium.com
Creativity and Place
A body in motion precedes a mind in motion. Is what I told myself as I set out on foot in search of the perfect location in which to work on the writing phase of the AiR project. I auditioned a number of places from my living room to the Spruce Street Hammock Park and in each place I felt like my brain was bifurcated into two architecture firms, each commissioned to build half a bridge and meet each other in the middle of the river, but as we know from Abe Lincoln, a bridge divided cannot stand. Half of my mind bridge, the half that did the storytelling in the Smokies, is made of azaleas, branches, and mottled light. The other half, the half that is trying to write those stories in Philly, is made of metal, concrete, and noise. How, I wondered, do I stay true to the spirit of The Smokies when there are three power saws and six car horns ringing in my ears and the only vista is from the onramp to I-95?Even the book I was reading, Satin Island, takes place in a city. The main character, city dweller that he is, is all sharp angles; he changes his mind abruptly, is constrained by his own moral rigidity, and physically walks down many, straight corridors, and as a result the book reads like its shape: rectangular. This is not surprising seeing as cities are made up of boxes. We live in box shaped homes, commute in box shaped cars and trains, and the city itself is divided into box shaped plots of land. Location and creative expression are a feedback loop, each influencing each other.In the mountains, the feedback loop is different. Mountains are all curves and asymmetry and stories from the mountains are as windy, airy, and lilty as the land. Imaginations can certainly run wild in both cities and mountains but my own imagination, which gets claustrophobic and hyperventilaty in boxes (I like curves, dots, and, for the record, odd numbers), tends to run in one direction, that of the Worst Possible Scenario. I will grant you, The Worst Possible Scenario for this project being that I have to write stories about mountains while staring at a bunch of 90 angles listening to intermittent power saws is not exactly cruel and unusual, but I would like to give my imagination a little more fodder than that when writing stories about cloud lands and bear cub spirit guides.Now, I know what you are thinking: "Why did not you write rough drafts of these stories while you were IN The Smokies?." You have a good point. I should have done that. But I was busy being IN The Smokies. Besides, there's no use crying over spilt ambiance. I did not even know until my last few days in the park that writing was going to play a major role in this project and by the time I would figured it out my dance card was filled. Lesson learned.I have one year to complete a project that is tangible and lives at the park, which gives me plenty of time to get back out to some mountains for a while to write, but I want to start working on it now while the images, scents, sounds, and stories are fresh in my mind so for the last few days I've set out on foot to find a place to write that engages my imagination and puts my saw-sensitive nerves at ease. What I have have learned is that no matter where I walk to I am still in a city.My friend Sarah recently send me an article (from which both quotes in this post are drawn) that confirmed much of what I've felt in the last decade as I've cultivated loving but creatively unsatisfying relationships with the cities of Washington D.C., NYC, and Philadelphia:"A 90-minute walk through a natural environment had a huge positive impact on participants. In a survey taken afterwards, those people who took the natural walk showed far lower levels of brooding, or obsessive worry. The control group who spent that 90 minutes walking through a city reported no such difference."I know, I know, I am an artist, it's my job to be creative whether I want to be or not, whether I am where I want to be or not. And yeah, that's a pretty luxurious position to be in, but it's also a job. If a carpenter does not have a hammer it makes the job of building a house infinitely more challenging. Tools vary from trade to trade but they are essential to getting a job done. Nevertheless, there is work to be done so I have no choice but to fall creatively in love with somewhere- anywhere- in the city.Now, as pretty much anyone on the planet can tell you, you can not force love. But you can cultivate it. I've spent the last two years looking for things to love in this city and I've found them; from the gnarled tree grove at Penn Treaty Park to the cemetery on Belgrade with all of it's solar lights that looks like a little, outdoor, ghost rave at night. There is a crack on the wall in one of the studios at school that looks like Tigger and a hole in the floor on the way to our dressing rooms that I think leads to another universe.I fell in love with these places because I wanted to. Because I had to. Because in order to draw inspiration from the city I need to make meaning and mystery here. I have to work to love cities whereas I feel lovingly worked upon by mountains and forests. Wilderness I cannot help but love. I will chase it until I die. It is the Romeo to my Juliet; "My love as deep; the more I give to thee, The more I have, for both are infinite."However, I have another year of grad school and I do really and truly like cities so here's the metropolitan game plan: Keep falling in love with things. As many things as possible, as often as possible. Philly may not be my soulmate metropolis but it's great for doing boxy things like "getting organized" and "applying for grants" and it is filled with opportunities for cultivating creative love. Just last night I visited an open kitchen sculpture garden that has been built by and for the people of the community and which has as much heart as any national park I've been to. The national parks protect lands and animals, which I hold to be vitally important, but this sculpture garden (which is an actual garden with actual soil) in Philly protects and provides peace for the people of the community and while it might not be the perfectly serene place to write that I quest for it is an inspirational, connective force in this world and a community I am proud to be a part of. Maybe I will do a story share here and bring some of my mountain story skillz to bear the bearless, urban world. The bridge between city and mountain life might be tough to, well, bridge, but it's all one ecosystem and as long as I am a part of this world I am going to do my best to get to know it all, be it a city hammock park, a local sculpture garden, or a national park. Does this solve my writing problem? Probably not. I still focus and write more freely in quiet, nature-y space, but remembering that it is all connected makes it easier to tap into what I love about The Smoky Mountains portion of the ecosystem, which does not feel so far away as it did yesterdayResidential Solar Lights | Best Outdoor Solar Street LightsResidential Solar Lights are becoming more popular as a way to light areas without the use of general electricity.

Solar Lights Explained
Solar lights use the sun's energy as their source of power, instead of electricity from the power grid. These lights have several advantages compared to the normal electricity-powered systems. Benefits include lower operating costs, less wiring, eco-friendly operation, and much more. Whether you're looking for garden lighting or solar security lights, this article gives you all the basic information to help you pick the right technology for you.Basics: How Do Solar Lights Work?A complete unit consists of a photovoltaic panel, storage battery, lamp, stand or fixture, and a box-type housing to house any circuitry. The photovoltaic (PV) panel, also called a solar panel, is what actually converts sunlight into electricity. It consists of numerous individual PV cells, which generate electricity when sunlight is incident upon them.The current produced by the PV cells is then transmitted through wires to the rechargeable storage battery. The battery stores the energy for later use, since additional artificial illumination is usually not required when there is plenty of sunlight.When required, the stored energy is then sent to the lamp, which may be switched on either manually or automatically. The lamp, mounted on the desired type of stand or fixture, then glows, thereby providing illumination.This technology is very versatile and has a wide variety of applications, from serving as decorative solar garden lighting to automated solar security lights. It's very easy to incorporate automation, such as light sensors, motion detectors, or timers that will automatically switch on the lights at a specified time or when it gets too dark or there is movement nearby.Benefits Of Solar Lights:As described in the previous section, each unit can be completely self-sufficient. Thus no wiring is required, since each unit is independent and does not need to be connected to a power grid. If you're considering solar garden lamps, for instance, this can save huge costs on long trenches for wiring, expensive insulation, and labour.Furthermore, the fact that solar lights aren't reliant on carbon-based electricity makes them eco-friendly. For any business, this is always a good statement to make, not to mention an excellent way of expressing social responsibility. Even for domestic use in homes, it makes great sense simply because it saves you on electricity bills!Applications:As discussed earlier, this is lighting technology may be used for many purposes. The lack of wiring makes it an excellent option for lighting in or around lakes, fountains or water bodies. It fits the bill for a solar shed light, and solar patio lights are also great for enhancing security for your porch or driveway.Even if the area where you want to install the light does not receive sufficient sunlight, you can still use solar lights by installing the PV panels in a different location. Of course, this has the drawback of requiring wiring between the panels, battery and the lamps. In the long run, however, it will still be more economical than conventional lights.

How to tell if solar garden lights are working?pat,solar lights are NOT connected to an electric outlet,they get their energy from the sun,sometimes you have to replace the rechargeable batteries in the lights,the best way to tell is by putting your hand over the solar panel on top of the light, the light should come on,if it does not you may have to replace the battery,and i do not think they make a battery charger for solar lights,hope this helps3. how do i get rid of earwigs in garden lights there only in the battery departments?After you clean them out seal the compartment with some sort of caulking so they cant reenter. They are just going in there to get out of the weather4. What are the different types of solar garden lights available in the market?If you are trying to just shine light on the whole garden there are spot light and flood lights available. If you want to accent the garden, hang lanterns or add any number of ornamental figurines. There are solar rocks that can be strategically placed to shine across your garden to. Use several to surround your work. Solar lighting is an excellent choice. Just make sure to get your panels in the sun and keep debris off of them.5. How do I keep rabbits from chewing electrical cords on my garden lights?Try the dog hair. Go to local salon and ask for hair from the floor6. How to kill wasps that've built a nest INSIDE my sealed solar garden lights?Try spraying it really well and quickly tie a plastic bag over the light so nothing can get out. They cannot breathe and will die7. Cool things to make in my yard?(: Bird feeders, humming bird feeders, ponds, decorative garden pots. Comfortable seating. Garden lights can be fun. They make these reflective twisty ties, that hunters use to mark trails so they can find their way around at night. Lost? Shine your light on that tree! They sell them in the sporting goods section of big stores. You could make little fairies out of them and hang them on plants that are illuminated at night. You could tell your cousin that fairies only come out at night and take him out to your peace garden at dark. I collect a lot of rocks and made a fairy park in a big garden pot. Made some miniature benches, a water fountain out of a geode and a white pebble pathway around the plants. If you do not have enough rocks, you could substitute various sizes of sticks. Tack them together to make a place for the fairies to chillax, when they visit at night. I hope you have fun with your fairy garden. Good luck! (:8. What is the best brand of solar powered garden lights? Where do i get them?Any brand is good. Just check for voltage (or wattage - I am not sure on this) - they come in different strength. It depends how bright you want the lights to be. Usually you can buy them in garden centres, or DIY stores with garden centre, but these places would usually stock cheep and cheerfull lights. If you want something prittier or desighner stuff (you know, you can get brick-shaped solar lights, then you just incorporate them in your garden path or wall design) then a lighting centre is the place to go. They have loads of them on ebay too, especially in ebay stores9. Would it be possible to hack solar garden lights into one big PV panel?a garden light uses one LED, or about 30mw of power. you would need 2000 of these to power just one 60 watt light bulb. not practical or cheap. you would be better served to get a single 60 watt panel. a clothes dryer uses a tremendous amount of power, you should hang the clothes out on a line to dry in the sunshine instead
How to Install Solar Street Lamp Panels Is Very Easy to Learn These Four Points
How to Install Solar Street Lamp Panels Is Very Easy to Learn These Four Points
1. Select good materialsFirst of all, the materials received by solar energy cannot be defective, because if the quality of the materials themselves is not qualified, it is impossible to make the solar street lamps work normally. However, some businesses have improved the corrosion resistance of the materials. In order to save costs, cold galvanizing treatment must be used. This kind of materials must be distinguished. Generally speaking, the materials selected shall be materials that can protect the battery board, with sufficient stability and not easy to be damaged.2. The positive and negative poles shall not be confusedEven if the positive and negative poles of a normal battery are not aligned, it will not work normally. Therefore, the battery panel of solar street lamp is the same. If the positive and negative poles are reversed, it will not only affect the work, but also burn out the battery. And the wire should not be too long. If it is long, it will increase resistance and affect work efficiency.3. Lightning protection deviceThe battery board must be equipped with lightning protection device. If lightning strikes, it will affect the voltage of the battery and damage the battery. Generally speaking, a normal lightning rod can solve this problem.4. It is forbidden to decorate metal materialsWhen installing the battery panel, if metal materials are decorated on the solar street lamp for beauty, it will affect the use of the battery, seriously short circuit, burn out the battery or explode.The above four points are the matters needing attention in the installation of solar street lamp panel.
This Australian Startup Is Bringing Solar Light to India's Slums
On the edge of Bengaluru, wedged between a railway line and a few dilapidated apartment blocks, squats an Indian slum.From a distance, it looks like any other impoverished settlement - a cluster of ramshackle tents, hordes of snotty-nosed kids and piles of rubbish crawling with fliesBut wander through the labyrinthine alleyways and you notice something a little incongruous. Here, 90 per cent of homes have small solar panels perched on their roofs that power the light insideThe 1,000 residents have ditched kerosene for clean energy, which has not only improved their health, it's provided a better quality lightThey're also saving themselves $100 dollars a year because they don't have to buy kerosene"We're very happy to have the solar lights now because we can work inside the house and the children can study inside," says Laxshmi, a resident of the slum.The slum dwellers bought their lights from Pollinate Energy, an organisation that works with India's poorest people in Bengaluru, Kolkata and LucknowSix young Australians founded Pollinate four years ago, including 28-year-old Alexie Sellar, a mechanical engineer from Sydney and the organisation's chief operating officer"I'm kind of amazed that we've reached 60,000 people already," she says"That's 60,000 people who have clean energy in their homes, something they would not have been able to access maybe for another decade at least.is what's known as a social business - it aims to find a business solution to a social problemThe Pollinate team drew much of its inspiration from the work of Bangladeshi social entrepreneur Muhummad Yunus who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2006 for his work with some of the world's poorest people."He's been a huge advocate of creating business solutions that allow people in poverty to engage with the market and find the best solution for them to lift themselves out of poverty," says Ms Seller.The Pollinate team identifies Indian employees with an entrepreneurial spirit. These salespeople, known as Pollinators, work in the slums selling products on commission.Manjunath is one of Pollinate's best salesmen. "I'm very happy to do this job because we are working with very poor people. They are uneducated and don't know how to live in the city."Manjunath has worked with Pollinate Energy for three years. For the first couple of years he just sold solar lights, but this year the organisation has begun selling other products, including water filters and mobile phones.Pollinate Energy's customers go onto payment plans and have five-weeks to repay their product. Incredibly, the default rate is a tiny 1 per cent."We had seen microfinance operating around the world for many years before we started Pollinate," says Ms Seller. "The entire ethos of microfinance is that people who don't have much money can still take on a loan and pay it back, and often they make better financial decisions than someone who has a lot of wealth."Pollinate Energy has ambitious plans to scale its business across India and wants to be operating in 20 cities by 2020."We're seeing this work very, very well in the cities we're in at the moment and so many more people are going to migrate into the cities in future that we have the opportunity to serve," says Ms Seller.The immense scale of energy poverty in India offers them a vast market for growth. The International Energy Agency says 240 million people, 20 per cent of the population, don't have access to electricity."What overwhelms me, as an Australian, is thinking that's 20 times the size of Australia who still don't have access to electricity," says Ms Seller."But the other side of me sees that as a huge opportunity - that's why we're so focused on scaling this to so many cities across India, we know these people are there, we know we just have to find them and serve them."Ms Seller says if Pollinate Energy wins The Venture it will be able to move into another 5 cities. The winner will be announced in New York in July.Of the $US1 million in prize money, $250,000 is decided by a public vote.There are 27 finalists in The Venture, a global competition that rewards businesses creating positive change.

Do Solar Lights Work in Colder Cloudy Climates?
yes! but not as bright as it would if it was sunny all the time!1. outdoor solar lights - not working after being flooded?I will politely disagree with the answer above. A bright white basking light is the best way to provide daytime heat for a bearded dragon. I have seen it for years, in many dragons, some over 8 years old. As for the specific bulb, most of the "specialized" reptile basking lights are halogen spotlights or floodlights. There is really very little difference in those and the halogen floodlights and spotlights you buy at the hardware store. There are some differences in the exact colour temperatures, but there are some differences in all bulbs, each "reptile" bulb from the other, etc. .. and they all work fine. You do still need a high output UVB bulb, and this can not be replaced with any other bulb. The halogen floodlights will not provide UVB, (neither will the halogen "reptile" basking lights, btw.) The only type of "all in one" basking lights that also provide UVB are called Mercury vapor bulbs. And they are usually pricey, and fragile, (they typically burn out easily). So, The halogens WILL NOT work for UVB needs2. Best Overall 5 Brightest Solar Spot Lights For Your Outdoor SpaceThinking about adding solar spotlights to your yard?
