A 80 Watt Folding Solar Panel from Nature Power allows you to take advantage of a free and natural energy source, the sun, to power your electronics and 12 volt batteries. Solar panels offer an environmentally friendly alternative to keeping all your gadgets fully juiced and will even help cut down on electric bills by lowering your dependence on home AC outlets. It uses rugged monocrystalline solar panels but its folding design conveniently allows for it to be a fraction of the size of a traditional solar panel. Fully extended this solar panel measures (L) 52.7″ x (W) 35.5″ x (H) 0.2″ and when folded it is only 17.7″ x 11.5″ x 1.9″ making it very easy to travel with or store out of the way. O-rings in the corners of the solar panel are for mounting the panel or even clipping to a backpack or bag while hiking. The 80 Watt Folding Solar Panel is weatherproof and includes 10 various make and model laptop adapters and a clamp for use with 12V batteries. It is important to note that this product requires the use of a charge controller (sold separately) to protect your batteries and electronics from overcharging.
Roughly 60% of water is used outdoors making harvesting rainwater a smart, green and easy way to conserve water helping both the environment and your water bill too. The Clean Rain™ Ultra Downspout Diverter from Atlantic Water Gardens is an all-in-one rainwater filtration and collection system designed to ensure the water you store is bug and debris-free. The Ultra Downspout Diverter installs directly into the downspout of your home’s gutter and uses the force of rainwater to deflect leaves, debris and bugs off of its leaf slide and stainless steel (mosquito-proof) mesh screen. Depending upon the intensity of the rainfall the Smart Sense™ First Flush valve will divert dirty roof water from the initial rainfall and then collect the clean water that comes after. The Downspout Diverter is compatible with standard garden hoses, 1″ sump hoses, 1.5″ pool hoses and 3″ schedule 40 pipes. Any of these hoses can be connected directly to the Clean Rain Diverter and used to fill up a rain barrel or cistern, pond, pool or even to directly provide water to plants and trees.
The Clean Rain Ultra Downspout Diverter can be installed at any height along the gutter downspout. It is recommended to install it at a reachable height to make maintenance, such as removing leaves and debris, an easy task. To install, 29.3″ of downspout will need to be removed as this is where the Downspout Diverter will be setup. It comes with 2 downspout adaptors to fit 2″ x 3″, 3″ x 4″, 3″, 4″ and schedule 40 pipes. The Downspout Diverter will work automatically upon installation and can be switched off when desired if you don’t need to divert water. Its exterior is white but can be painted to match the color of the downspout it is being connected too for a clean look.
In some parts of the we still get a good amount of sunlight during the Winter months, however it is still pretty chilly outside. Instead of cranking up the heater in your home why not install a solar air heater that sticks on easily to one of your windows? It is very easy to install, all you have to do is place it against a window with southern exposure. Unlike your window AC unit you do not need to open or remove the window. The panel has a built in digital thermometer which allows you to see the temperature of the air that the heater is blowing out.
Add accent lighting to any porch or yard with a Low Glow Deck Marker Light from Xodus Innovations. The LED Deck Marker Light features a photocell sensor which automatically turns the light on at dusk and off at dawn making it ideal for outdoor applications. It’s wireless and powered by 3 AA batteries (sold separately) which will typically last for up to 1 year running an average of 12 hours a night due to its LED “Low Glow Technology” that conserves battery life. The low glow emitted from the Deck Marker Light makes it perfect for identifying steps, walkways or posts that might otherwise be difficult to see at night and thus a potential safety hazard. This simple solution installs quickly and includes the hardware to do so. It can be mounted to a flat surface via included double-sided tape (area should be cleaned prior to applying tape) or with 2 screws for a stronger hold.
