Fulham’s HotSpot Constant Power LED Emergency Driver Certified for Title 20 in California and Oregon

New Constant Power Programmable LED Emergency Driver Complies with CEC Title 20 Regulations for Performance and Energy Savings.

Hawthorne, CA, USA — Fulham Co., Inc., a leading supplier of lighting components and electronics for commercial and specialty applications, today announced that its HotSpot Constant Power LED Emergency Driver (Part FHSP-UNV-10P-L-SD) has been certified compliant with California Energy Commission (CEC) Title 20 Code of Regulations for small battery charger systems.

Since the Constant Power Emergency LED driver family was introduced in September 2016, it has become popular for emergency lighting due to its ease of installation and compliance with local emergency lighting standards. The new addition of FHSCP-UNV-10P-L-SD offers a versatile, reliable emergency lighting system that uses LiFePO4 batteries to deliver a minimum of 90 minutes of light in case of a power outage. It can be programmed for lower light output for longer emergency runtimes. The HotSpot Constant Power programmable emergency driver has been certified to meet the CEC Title 20 specifications outlined for small battery charger systems. Title 20 affects installations in California and Oregon.

“Fulham is committed to taking the lead in supporting energy efficiency standards and ensuring that our customers have products that comply with all necessary regulations,” said Russ Sharer, Vice President of Global Marketing for Fulham. “Our constant power LED emergency lighting system has been popular since it began shipping, and now, with Title 20 compliance, our distributors and partners have an excellent emergency lighting solution for one of the most energy-aware markets in the world.”

The HotSpot Constant Power Programmable LED Emergency Driver is one of Fulham’s clever, programmable lighting products. In its default setting, the battery will deliver maximum output, e.g. a 5W battery will deliver 90 minutes of power at 5W, or a 10W battery will deliver 10W of power for 90 minutes, but the settings can be programmed to provide a longer runtime. For example, programming the driver for 5W emergency output while connected to a 10W battery will result in 180 minutes of emergency illumination. This allows luminaire OEMs and contractors to use one product for many applications and situations. The HotSpot Constant Power emergency light also features a bicolor illuminated test switch with self-diagnostics to promote greater reliability and safety.

The new HotSpot Constant Power Programmable LED emergency drivers is available with four battery options, ranging from 5W to 10W rated output. The unit has UNV, 50/60Hz input with an output voltage from 16 to 55VDC. The unit provides constant output power, automatically adjusting the current as needed, and can be installed in minutes.

In addition to Title 20, the HotSpot Constant Power Programmable LED Emergency Driver complies with international safety regulations, including cURus, cULus, CE and ENEC. All HotSpot units come with Fulham’s 5-year warranty.

Infinity SAV USA Nominated for the Katerva Award

Infinity SAV USA has been nominated by Katerva Award for sustainable innovations in Clean Energy.

Seattle, WA, USA — Infinity SAV USA (http://www.infinitysav.us) has been nominated for the Katerva Award for sustainable innovations in Clean Energy. Katerva Award (http://www.katerva.net) is often referred to as the Nobel Prize of Sustainability. Gary Tripp, President of Infinity SAV USA says their, “generator will stop Climate Change by eliminating CO2 from electricity and transportation and will cut the cost of power by 90%.” Katerva selects the companies with innovations that will change the market and the environment for the better and Infinity certainly does.

Infinity SAV USA technology claims it technology will replace fossil fuels for electricity and transportation. The company’s working generator prototype is powered by permanent magnets and produces 3 kW of excess energy. The generator has been demonstrated to hundreds of people including engineers and academics.

The Infinity generator technology will benefit everyone – the poor villager with no electricity, who has to walk miles for water and the clogged cites breathing polluted air. Infinity’s generator powered solely by permanent magnets will replace fossil fuels for electricity and transportation.

Infinity SAV USA Incorporated is developing an electric generator to power homes and small businesses for as little as $0.02 per kWh. The goal is to stop climate change, save the environment, and save money.

The company has uploaded several video demonstrations to YouTube and those videos have received 500,000 views, and many many requests to purchase generators. The company plans to use this technology as the starting point to develop a 20 kW generator that will completely power a house or small business.

The company’s founder and inventor, Andrii Slobodian, explains that the generator has permanent magnets in the stator and coils of copper wire in the rotor. When a magnet approaches a coil of copper wire, it induces a like polarity in the coil. North induces North and North repels North and that causes the rotor to spin and creates power.

Skeptics say it is impossible because it violates the Law of Conservation of Energy. Infinity responds by pointing to their working prototype. Magnets are caused by quantum mechanical spin of unpaired electrons. The company believes their generator conforms with Law of Conservation of Energy on the quantum level. Electron spin may be the source of the quantum effect causing this new source of energy. (Electrons don’t spin, it is just shorthand for “maintaining their magnetic dipole moment.”)

The company is using the crowdfunding site Fundable.com to raise money to complete the engineering in the US for a bigger version of the generator.

The many benefits of this new energy source include cheap, clean, renewable, 24/7 electricity with no CO2. These generators could be used to power a house, charge the battery of electric cars, or provide power in remote locations. Decreasing the cost of electricity and stopping pollution will benefit everyone, especially the poorest among us.

Florida Coach Transit Companies Reducing Regens – ECOFuelMax

Florida Transportation Department’s have found an answer to dealing with the negative issues with Diesel Regeneration Cycles and Diesel Particulate Filters.

Boca Raton, FL, November 28, 2016 – Coach Buses and Trucks that do a lot of stop and go driving all day long experience what is known as Diesel Regeneration Cycles or REGEN’s. Regen Cycles are activated by a motors computer (ECM) to clean its Diesel Particulate Filter that traps un-burnt fuel or soot.

Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF) since 2007 has been installed on all diesel engines sold and operating in the United States. A Diesel Regeneration Cycle is a function initiated by a vehicles computer (ECM) to trap un-burnt fuel in a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF). The ECO works by increasing the Reid Vapor Pressure (RVP) in Fuel causing it to burn more volatile and cleaner. Cleaner burning fuel reduces the amount un-burnt fuel so less REGEN Cycles are needed. On average Diesel Regeneration Cycles waste 4 to 10 gallons of fuel.

When a DPF gets full of the soot it runs with reduce performance and requires maintenance, if maintenance is not performed a diesel engine will stop running.

The ECOFUELMAX is a simple low cost ($390) easy to install in-line fuel enhancer, No Chemicals or Maintenance is required; its life is 20+ years. Due to the increased efficiency and reduced maintenance and downtime Transit Companies have experienced an ROI of less than 20 days and $3,000- $5,000+ in projected annual savings. Keep your buses on the road, not in the shop!

ECO Fuel Systems, LLC and its principals have been actively working to reduce Hydrocarbon Pollution since 1999. Reduce maintenance expenses and downtime while reducing pollution 40% to over 70% that is released into the atmosphere, a Win – Win solution. For more information call or email us for more details.

The Rose receives 2016 Jack Kemp Excellence in Affordable and Workforce Housing Award from the Urban Land Institute

Minneapolis, Minnesota, 2016-Nov-04 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — PLACE is pleased to announce that The Rose and three sister developments at Portland and Franklin Avenues (South Quarter) in Minneapolis were selected by the Urban Land Institute (ULI) Terwilliger Center for Housing as the winner of the 2016 Jack Kemp Excellence in Affordable and Workforce Housing Award. This annual award honors developments that ensure housing affordability for people with a range of incomes. Representing the completion of South Quarter, The Rose offers 43 market rate apartments and 47 income-restricted affordable apartments in profoundly sustainable buildings that have neither furnaces nor conventional air conditioning equipment.

In 2010, affordable housing developer Aeon, in partnership with Hope Community, selected PLACE by competition to add specialized development consultant capacity as Sustainability Champion for the last phase of South Quarter. Aeon wanted the final buildings to be the best performing buildings of their kind in the country, on an affordable housing budget. A 501(c)(3) charity dedicated to public benefit, PLACE provided disruptive environmental design analysis, assisted in assembling and facilitating a world-class collaborative design and construction team, deepened community engagement, and refined financial modeling in furtherance of creating high-performance, healthy buildings for Aeon’s residents.

Minneapolis has the harshest climate of any large city in America. The biggest challenge for PLACE was to ensure that the team could deliver a building envelope capable of keeping residents cool in a scorching summer with high humidity and a frigid winter with temperatures plunging to minus thirty degrees Fahrenheit. Buildings in the U.S. are built each day to standards that cause them to consume 70% of America’s primary energy, with 52% of that energy going to heating and cooling. The Rose is 75% more energy efficient than local standards require, which also deepens affordability for residents; it represents PLACE’s most cutting edge restorative development work to date.

“This project is on the leading edge of workforce housing development and preservation,” said J. Ronald Terwilliger, chairman of Terwilliger Pappas Multifamily Partners in Atlanta. “It has it all—mixed-income housing, environmental sustainability, long-term affordability, and long-term financing.”

“The efforts of Aeon and Hope Community, with their many public and private sector partners, prove that previously disinvested communities can point the way forward for mixed-income, environmentally sustainable redevelopment in our cities,” said Stockton Williams, executive director of the ULI Terwilliger Center.

Bmark Energy Announces California Direct Access (DA) Program is Poised to Expand in PG&E, SCE and SDG&E

  • California’s Direct Access (DA) Program is Poised to Expand in PG&E, SCE and SDG&E
  • Many Commercial & Industrial DA Companies Currently Save 10-25%

Pismo Beach, CA, June 02, 2015 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — On April 21, 2015, California Senate Bill SB286 passed a Senate Energy, Utilities and Communications Committee (11-0) and indicates the legislature’s desire to support both individual choice (increase the DA CAP) and renewable energy.

This is Great News – and is Electricity Deregulation in Action

Many companies currently participating in the DA program appreciate substantial savings between 10-25% on their generation costs over fully-bundled utility rates, which is why the DA program is so popular and in high demand.

Going forward, we expect the bill to be amended to either phase in the CAP increases or impose some alternative type of participation CAP, and include a renewable energy purchase obligation for new participants.

The Committee Chairman supports the bill and would like to see the bill amended to increase the CAP by 8,000 GWh and would also like to see any new participants be taken from the utility wait list.

** This “Wait List” and Timing are Extremely Important **

To be considered for participation into the DA program, a Six-Month Notice to Transfer to Direct Access needs to be submitted by a company to their utility. With these notices, each utility creates their “Wait List” for any future DA openings that may occur under the CAP for the following year.

“It is extremely important that companies realize that the utility Wait Lists for 2016 are being formed NOW,” says Robert Kramb, president of Bmark Energy, “and the deadline is June 12 for any 2016 DA openings.”

Six-Month Notice to Transfer to Direct Access forms are sent to the utility June 8, 2015 – June 12, 2015. If you miss the June 12, 2015 deadline, any DA opportunity for 2016 is eliminated.

Next Steps to Take:

1- Contact us at Bmark Energy at: 805-773-3762 Ext. 3
2- Email your electric utility invoice to: robertk@bmarkenergy.com
3- We will complete the form and return it to you for your signature.
4- We will then submit the form during the utility enrollment period.

Here are links to additional information on Direct Access, regarding FAQs, as well as savings charts and graphs.
