Comments Off on Bosch Lauches Off-the-Shelf Home Solar Power Storage System

Consumers and homeowners can now get their hands on a home solar power and battery system , thanks to Bosch. Called the BPT-S 5 Hybrid , the integrated solar supply system has everything- an inverter, Saft lithium-ion batteries and energy management system. In total, the system provides an easy way of storing PV power that can be plugged into a home or grid in much the same way as a generator. Initially produced in 2012, this is the first time Bosch has made the unit commercially available—though currently only to buyers in Germany.

Comments Off on BP’s Deepwater Horizon Compensation Fund Drying Up Fast, Company Goes on the Defensive

According to The Guardian , BP has just revealed that there is only $300 million left in its Deepwater Horizon compensation fund . The $20 billion fund was originally created to pay reparations to ailing business that suffered in the wake of the massive oil spill in May of 2010. In the petroleum company’s second quarter financial report , BP said it will be increasing its trust fund to help business by just $200 million, raising the total provisions payed out to $42.4 billion. They’ve also noted they were prepared to take legal action against any compensation claim they deem as “absurd”.
