"Great comments, all! Electric or gas, pollutants need to be removed, though certainly far less concern with electric. Yes, the switch can be costly if you need all new pots and pans – perhaps that could be a utility perk. And it does take some…"

"Thanks for this comparison. Now if you price out the cost of Natural gas vs electricty, what comes out as more expensive to boil that pot of water? I think its 17 cents/kwh in New York, 8 cents/kwh in Oregon. 10.45 cents/KWH National Average."

"Thank you for this comparison. Now matching solar daily output to induction cooking time can be measured. Cooking and water heating are the highest kWh usage"

"Hi Bud. I bought the Nuwave Precision 2 (<$50). It does have a timer and additional programming features which I haven't used so I can't speak to them. Technology is better than smoke!"

Gas vs Induction Cooking Energy Comparison

Comparison Between LP Gas Range and Induction Burner

Admittedly, this is a simple and very limited analysis, but it does offer some useful information. I wrote about induction cooking 2 years ago, the cost has since come down enough that I recently bought a single coil, counter-top unit, and after a week of use, the numbers are in.

Energy Ambassadors: Cuba and Vermont

Posted on October 6, 2015 at 5:11am 0 Comments

Last winter i had the pleasure of hosting a Cuban colleague for a week in Vermont. We toured the state's most interesting energy related sites and shared cultural perspectives. A few years earlier, Mario co-hosted an energy professionals group I toured with in Cuba. I like to think of us as Energy Ambassadors. It's a great story, but only the first chapter has been written!…

Less oil, more courage: Energy and Art

Posted on May 22, 2013 at 11:30am 0 Comments

Hard to admit, but I'm not all fun-facts all the time. Sometimes I even pay attention to things that aren't energy related. So, rather engineering geek-speak that dominates the energy efficiency professional’s lexicon, today’s post is about “energy art” as a counterbalance to the usual “art of energy” commentary. This is a subject I've been following for many years and it's inspiring to see what artists can do with solar panels, radiators, and flame.
