Could You Cut It As An Electrician?

Electricity is essential for most modern homes, but taking on a DIY project can be intimidating -- if you don’t know what you’re doing, you could be in for a shock! When it comes to watts, amps, and joules, there’s a lot to know, and safety is key, especially when you're working with live wires! Keep cool, study up and remember which wire is hot. Or are we moving too fast? Maybe you don’t realize that water and electricity don't mix. If you are that unhandy, perhaps you should stick to flipping the light on and off. But we have a feeling you are worth a little more than that! Do you have what it takes to be a wiring pro? Get amped about electricity and show us what you’ve got by taking this home electricity quiz. Then, challenge your friends and family to see who really knows their stuff!

Quiz WriterChantelle

Chantelle took to the written word like a fish takes to water. That is to say, she found herself immersed in literature from before she was born. She’s been known to tell her friends all about how she can still remember the passages she heard her mother read to her when she was in the womb - Emily Dickinson, Jane Austen, and a bit of Hunter S. Thompson thrown in to balance it out. Whether she’s whipping up pithy one-liners to tease your brain or busy working on her second novel (the first one is available on Amazon under a pen name she refuses to disclose), Chantelle has continued to keep her feet wet with words, as it were. You’re sure to get a kick out of her giggle-worthy explanations and outrageous hints, and still come away feeling like you’ve just expanded your knowledge base.

Going Solar

Solar energy is a big trend these days and for a good reason! It is a completely free energy source the correct devices can capture in abundance. The sun is 90 million miles away, but it takes less than ten minutes for light to travel to Earth, and the planet receives nearly 1,400 watts of direct solar radiation per square meter. In the past decade, the cost of solar panels has reduced by 80%. Once installed, solar panels are easy to maintain and expected to last about 25 years. In the US, most homes consume about 11,000 kilowatt-hours of energy each year. To power a home with 100% solar energy, you would have to install 30 250-watt solar panels and capture four hours of sunlight per day. To power the entire Earth, we need 191,000 square miles of solar panels. With nearly 60 million square miles on Earth, there's room to spare!
