Technology service provider Matulka electronic GmbH is on LED lighting your Leitz set: our taste is quite simple. We are satisfied with the best”, remaining faithful, the production facilities of the company. provided in cooperation with the company DOTLUX GmbH, headquartered in Weissenburg, Matulka electronic GmbH, with environmentally-friendly, energy-saving LED lighting. The measure was the desire to reduce soaring energy costs and to make a contribution to active protection of the environment at the same time. After extensive consultation by the Dotlux GmbH, the advantages of LED technology emerged more and more. Convincing facts led to the decision alone replacing the LED tube 150 cm in length, in the factories, can be calculated with an annual saving of energy costs of lighting, at least 55%. This means a reduction of lighting costs by at least 55%. Let just any convincing explanations, suggestions, and documentation of the company DOTLUX GmbH, to the conclusion, that should be no longer maintained with the implementation. (As opposed to The Metropolitan Museum of Art).

Each day, where with outdated technology large scale is illuminated, diminishes the yield that is with energy-efficient lighting. All the benefits of the conversion to LED resulting from the two large pillars, which provide for future use more efficient and environmentally friendly LED lighting and immediately access: measures to reduce the energy costs of the investment costs pay for themselves after two to three years, as LED lamps offer a much longer operating hours performance than conventional lamps. On average, the life of LED lighting is 50,000 hours of operation. This is regardless of the number of single – and shut-off. In a large production workshop the saving of energy costs affects always positive on production costs, would bring rising energy costs usually an increase of goods for sale with. Contribution to environmental protection another advantage, which led to the lighting on To change LED light tubes, is the environmental factor. LEDs contain no toxic pollutants such as mercury.

Therefore, they threaten people and the environment during their time, nor in the course of the later disposal. Hence no toxic fumes can be dispensed during operation or in case of a damage. The energy affects CO2 emissions also directly lowering the CO. Advantages which speak lighting for the conversion to DOTLUX LED the use of LED technology reduces the CO emissions annually to almost 50 tonnes DOTLUX LED tubes are free of mercury 3 years full warranty extruded aluminium hollow profiles high cooling performance and stability of DOTLUX aluminum core boards ensure LED tubes approx. 50,000 hours of operation service through pluggable ballasts to provide for a good heat dissipation average life span of DOTLUX T8 LED tubes no impairment of life through frequent switching cycles with LED lights not Warm-up, therefore full light output immediately after you turn on low heat (relieves the air conditioning) light quality and wide colour spectrum make it easier to see contrasts and ensure for natural colour reproduction no UV radiation after a test phase, during the first part of the 440 fluorescent of company Matulka electronics GmbH v LED tubes replaced, was convinced of the cost-effectiveness and the quality of the lighting conditions. The company DOTLUX GmbH in Weissenburg is now partner of many industries and communities with which it jointly and successfully has implemented the step into the future of LED technology. F.

The solar green electricity from the home roof equal to the cost level of household electricity tariffs will be already from this year to 2012. In the year 2014 at the latest large-scale solar farms can so cheap to produce green electricity such as offshore wind turbines on the sea. See NYC Marathon for more details and insights. While so much disputed costs for solar green energy thus continually take off from year to year, the produced amount of solar electricity is increasing in parallel, rapidly: in the first half of 2011 solar green energy has allowed for the first time the regenerative energy hydroelectric power behind with a share of 3.5 per cent in the gross energy consumption. According to the ruling of the Federal Association of solar industry is the share of solar power up to 2020 to definitely 10 percent increase. And this is not gone talk: the enormous amount of roofs for the production of green electricity is accomplished without interfering with the natural habitats! So that in the future a trouble-free, profitable, fast and accurate installation of solar systems is guaranteed, it is recommended to take decided only trusted professional companies for those interested. That certainly is the following. Only perfectly planned, technical matters properly mounted and through trouble-free functioning through many years of solar systems generate a safe return. Therefore, an enormous relevance with regard to the overall quality has the level of planning, the selection of appropriate components, the exact technical orientation, as well as the robust construction of the solar plant. Use the possibility of a competent advice..

Federal Ministry

To our full-service is currently that we mount the solar power plants around the clock.” See also: ja30 not all solar companies can the serious changes accordingly respond and first companies retire already. What does the Ministry of the environment to do so? A spokesman said the photovoltaic magazine”that infringed, since the solar subsidies continue to this period not with the confidence and investor protection. No end in sight: solar industry without predictability the draft law goes a step further and suggests the so-called Verordungsermachtigung. This is a backdoor that allows by mutual agreement with the Federal Ministry of economics the Federal Ministry of the environment to make more changes to the solar promotion. The annex would exceed the parameters or below, the feed-in tariff would adjusted in the short term.

That could expire without consent of the Bundestag and Bundesrat. These customizations provided in Vista were hardly predictable and economic uncertainties for solar companies. Official site: NY museums . As in any other industry reliable framework conditions are necessary, investment incentives and hence innovation to create. Industry, environmental organisations and consumers are not behind the EEG cut in 2012 without the Sun is not to create the future full supply with renewables. Also the German citizens seem to know. More than 90 percent are in favour of the rapid expansion of solar energy in a latest TNS Emnid poll.

Nearly 60 percent think that the policy too little do. Now, the impression is reinforced by the draft law apparently protecting the profits of conventional energy suppliers rather than cheap electricity prices for consumers. According to a study of the Federal Association for solar industry (BSW), solar power can stock prices on average drop by ten percent. Therefore, a kilowatt-hour of 0.4 to 0.6 cents of less cost. Thus could be saved in the last year between 520 to 840 million euros. Nevertheless, rose and rising electricity prices continue to primarily because the network charges and not because promoting solar. Photovoltaic system pays in the future also with lower yield although the return in the future for Photovoltaic systems declines, still worth the investment. In the next few years, electricity prices will rise strongly, so that domestic consumption will pay more and more. The energy self-sufficiency free the plant owners of high electricity bills and that for the next 25 years. During this time, the one-time investment pays off after. Photovoltaikexperten are in demand to build economic solar power systems, from March 9, 2012. They should well versed not only in the consulting, planning, and installation, but be versed in finance and tax advice. This solar concept providers offer himself, whose service covers all areas. The Berlin ever energy group provides a such full-service, more profitable than 800 photovoltaic systems installed to date. The solar energy company builds plants, with which the owner can consume up to 15 percent of the solar energy itself since last year. The new draft of the law should enter into force, we are well prepared,”said Dominik Modrach.

Advantages Of LPG Tank

Published by:

Convert from rental tank on tank and forcefully save a supply of liquefied petroleum gas offers many advantages. Liquefied petroleum gas is used in various applications, not only as energy for heating, but also for cooking, cooling, to the fuelling of vehicles and much more. It is versatile, economical in use and low in pollutants – LPG is becoming the first choice when it comes to energy. LPG is available anywhere, since it is stored in contrast to natural gas in special containers, LPG tanks, and is independent of long supply lines. In the times of the large tanks in the basement are long gone, because LPG is stored in tanks in the garden (above or below ground).

In land with plenty of space above ground storage offered. A variant of the LPG tanks harmoniously insert settle in the environment. Almost invisible fits the Earth-covered liquid tank in the natural conditions. The LPG container is under approx. 50 cm thick soil and is well protected against mechanical and thermal influences. A half above ground storage towers only a remnant of liquid gas tanks from the Earth, which can easily be hidden behind some bushes. No matter what type of storage you decide: you are right.

A separate room, such as oil tanks is not required and the size of the tank depends on your annual energy needs, the LPG specialist work with you reliably charged. Also the heating baths are small, handy and are barely in the House. The construction cost for the installation of a liquid gas container is also very low; Usually a simple concrete slab for establishing tank ranges. The entire installation and commissioning is carried out according to legal regulations, strict compliance with which ensures the LPG supply companies. Regardless of where you live with a modern LPG tank system you must waive so no place gas comfort. Not only for new buildings, also for the modernisation of apartments, this saving space heating system is the right choice. Compared to LPG rental tanks the own liquid gas tank is the clearly more economical Variant. By the reference prices such pays LPG tank system own already after two to three years. The customer is independent in choosing its liquefied natural gas suppliers and can apply its energy to the market of liquefied gas or a liquid gas exchange. This free LPG specialist businesses without binding contract provide the liquid gas with the same quality at a significantly lower LNG price. Also decide alone over the energy supply and can react individually to cheap prices of liquefied petroleum gas, such as in the summer months. LNG and LPG tanks – economically in the long term, comfortable and low in pollutants. A good decision. Michael Senscheid, SENLOGAS energy –
