Asked in Solar Power, Technology
Does an Elster GREX meter measure solar power generated in excess of current demand?
It depends how it is installed. It will usually measure the total solar power generated. If you have a contract to supply extra energy back to the grid, then it can measure that too. ...
Asked in Crusades
In what ways did the crusades demonstrate the power of the church in Europe?
The Crusades generated that the church could even make a huge mob to kill anything they disliked, which shows power. ...
Asked in Physics
How are work force and power all mathematically related?
Force is a measure of effort needed to accelerate an object, and is mathematically represented by: F = ma. Work is a measure of energy needed to move an object through a certain displacement, and is represented by: W = Fd. Power is a measure of the work done per unit time, and is represented by: P = W/t. ...

What is the primary source of electric energy in the US?
Over half of the electric power generated in the U.S. is being generated by coal fired electric power plants. ...
Asked in Math and Arithmetic, Weight and Mass
What is the formula to convert megawatt to tons?
You cannot. A megawatt is a measure of power, whereas a ton is a measure of mass. The two measure different things and, according to the basic principles of dimensional analysis, conversion from one to the other is not valid. The amount of power generated from one ton of nuclear fuel will be very different from that obtained by burning a ton of gas, or anthracite, or peat. ...
Asked in Investing and Financial Markets
Is a home solar generator a good investment?
A solar home generator would be a good investment if you also invested in a battery system that would allow you to store the power generated for later use. Otherwise you could only use the power while it was being generated, and that's not the most efficient. ...
Asked in Nuclear Energy
Where is the electricity actually generated in a power station?
In almost any power station, the electricity is generated in a generator. The generator room may or may not be in the same building as the reactor. ...
