How Walmart is reaching for the sun | North Carolina Solar companies | Scoop.it

wWalmart is outfitting its U.S. stores with solar panels and pushing forward with solar initiatives in Mexico and Brazil.

Richard Viers's insight:

We have yet to see this growth integration on their stores, but Walmart is showing progress with their warehouses.  Do you have one near you? If so please curate and let us know if they have solar on the roof tops.  Here at Alternative Energy Products Group we would like to know where the opportunities lie.  http://alternativeenergyproductsgroup.com

Great example of what Prezi can do.

Ian Korman's curator insight, February 3, 2014 3:19 AM

Prezi isn't new but it is still pretty innovative. I recommend using just to stick out from the PowerPoint crowd. You will really stick out if you use it as creatively as they did in this video.

Solar America Looks toward Mexico and Central America as Next Hot Spot for Solar Projects

Solar America Looks toward Mexico and Central America as Next Hot Spot for Solar Projects | North Carolina Solar companies | Scoop.it

Via James Brady
Richard Viers's insight:

Latin America is on the verge of developing itself as an energy hot spot, however I caution that before developing any large scale projects you must have security in place. The nations of Latin America are mainly still under paid ,and underappreciated as a whole. There is still time to develop relations with good security companies that operate there.

FREE ENERGY FOR YOUR HOME USING VERY SIMPLE COMPONENTS

This is an article I wrote about how to use simple components to garner energy for free.

Richard Viers's insight:

 

 

Free energy devices allow you to produce electricity for your home from energy sources around you, without any monthly cost. The only money you have to pay involves the money in initially setting up the devices. Once installed, you can earn the benefit of free energy for your home, for years and years. Free energy systems have been developed by energy enthusiasts around the world. Many of these techniques have been studied further, improved, tested, and proven to be reliable and efficient.

 

The devices are so simple that they are constructed using basic electric, mechanical, and electronic components; and once set up, require little maintenance cost. The following are a few devices that can be constructed using very simple and easily available components, and serve to illustrate the proof of concept of free energy systems.

 

A small device that can convert electromagnetic energy from radio waves to electrical energy can be assembled to illustrate the working of its more sophisticated free energy counterpart. The device can be made up of simple components such as antennae, capacitors, inductors, chokes, resistors and other elements. Several such simple devices could be used to generate enough electricity for your household needs. A similar device could be constructed using antennae, a series of diodes, and a capacitor bank.

 

Another type of free energy device uses static electricity to generate current electricity for your home. A similar device can be constructed using conductors or wires insulated on the edges using nylon or some other insulating device, to absorb the static charges around it. With the help of spark plugs, ignition coils, condensers, diodes, and a battery, the charges could be accumulated and collected, and then converted to usable electricity.

 

Some free energy devices use energy from the solar and cosmic radiation around us to generate electricity. These devices are based on the magnifying transmitter invented by Nicola Tesla over a century ago. An appliance to demonstrate the proof of concept can be made of simple materials such as aluminium plates, insulated wires, capacitors, and diodes. The device is relative easy to set up; and once installed and properly grounded, it will keep providing electricity constantly.

Humans With Amplified Intelligence Could Be More Powerful Than AI_

Humans With Amplified Intelligence Could Be More Powerful Than AI_ | North Carolina Solar companies | Scoop.it

With much of our attention focused the rise of advanced artificial intelligence, few consider the potential for radically amplified human intelligence (IA). It’s an open question as to which will come first, but a technologically boosted brain could be just as powerful — and just as dangerous – as AI.

Richard Viers's insight:

I have always said that most science fiction writers are prophets, ever since Leonardo DaVinci, Jules Verne, Robert Heinlien and many others stories peaked my imagination, I have realized that anything the mind of man can conceive man can acheive.  We are trully on the verge of realizing many new things that God has given us to build upon our original selves. My name is Richard Viers, and I advocate for Alternative Energy Products Group.

GE, MetLife to Buy U.S. Solar Farm With Mitsubishi and Citigroup

GE, MetLife to Buy U.S. Solar Farm With Mitsubishi and Citigroup | North Carolina Solar companies | Scoop.it
EDF Renewable Energy, a U.S. unit of French utility Electricite de France SA, completed financing for its 143-megawatt Catalina solar project under construction in California’s Mojave Desert.
Richard Viers's insight:

With the advent of large companies like this buying interest in solar farms, maybe the fact that tax incentives are changing will not be as great a factor in the future.  Concentrating on building the market before the product is one of the reasons companies survive. We are building a force to be reconned with at Alternative Energy Products Group.

Linn Energy, LinnCo to Buy Berry Petroleum

Linn Energy, LinnCo to Buy Berry Petroleum | North Carolina Solar companies | Scoop.it
Linn Energy LLC (LINE), along with its former unit LinnCo LLC (LNCO), has agreed to buy Berry Petroleum Co. (BRY) for about $2.5 billion in stock as the oil and natural-gas developer aims to expand its geographic presence and bolster production.
Richard Viers's insight:

Though the white house talks a big intent, they are slow to recall the budget fight they are having and the impact it has on companies like http://alternativeenergyproductsgroup.com  a solar sales and installation company in the Charlotte NC metro area.  The economy being what it is, there are so many small business owners like Richard Viers, the owner of Alternative Energy Products Group in Stanley North Carolina that are asking President Obama to take a more realistic approach to the whole issue of Alternative Energy.   Smaller companies that are in early stages of development could use the guarantees that were given to Solyndra and other large companies.  The market for thin film and other types of Solar PV products would be solved more by building a larger interest in Design, Sales, and installation of Solar Systems by growing the market first.  We at the bottom of the chain are actually much more important to the industry as a whole than the manufacturers. Without a base for them to sell to, there is no market.   I advocate for Alternative Energy Products.
