Why your furnace should also be generating electricity
Troy Media
Co-generation — the simultaneous generation of both electricity and heat — is an idea as old as the electric power plant itself. In 1882, Thomas Edison's Pearl Street generating station was providing both electricity and heat to lower Manhattan. The leftover steam from the coal-powered turbines was piped to nearby homes and businesses. Now, some 130 years later, co-generation has returned as a viable technology in North America.

Beacon News
A passive solar greenhouse in Invermere, B.C. is making people across the continent sit up and takes notice. What is a passive solar greenhouse? Don't they already use the sun's energy? Well yes, but with the traditional Dutch glass box greenhouse design all that heat leaves once the sun goes down.
