FlexEnergy Solutions has a lot to be proud of these days.
MidNite Solar’s product launch in September to January is set to shake up the U.S. alternative energy industry. Even better, the Barcelona and Hawke’s Bay charge controllers, the Rosie inverter, and the unique B17 modular inverter are made right here by Americans, in Arlington, WA.
While Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk and Richard Branson are sending rockets to explore space and make Mars habitable for humans, there’s a strong argument to be made for housekeeping changes on Earth, especially if you can’t afford to relocate to the Red Planet.
Capstone has expanded its offerings and completed a rebrand since Business in Focus spoke with the company back in late 2017. Originally called Capstone Turbine Corporation, the Van Nuys, California-based firm changed its name to Capstone Green Energy Corporation on Earth Day—April 22—of this year.

The necessity of reducing smog, an overwhelming global demand for power, and electrical grids stretched to the breaking point are the factors pushing utilities to make the switch to renewable energy sources.
The move toward making energy generation as clean as possible remains a slow shift in some industries. In mining, several contributors are making inroads toward a brighter, cleaner future for mineral extraction.

From the trickle of water we use at home to brush our teeth to the millions of gallons consumed daily by the resource sectors, agriculture, and manufacturing, every drop is precious. Fortunately, water is far from being a single-use commodity. Depending on contamination, water can be cleaned, recycled, and re-used. From industrial laundromats running their grey water through pipes to heat facilities, to homeowners using dishwater to flush toilets or irrigate gardens, water can be used far more efficiently than we may think.
