A Fresh Look at Irvington

Summer Sunday afternoons in the Irvington neighborhood of Indianapolis are special. Around 10am, tents start popping up all over the northwest corner of Ellenberger Park (5301 East Saint Clair) and tables are put out. Within just an hour or so, booths full of fruits & vegetables, crafts, art, soaps, and honey are greeting people and selling their products. It’s not the only farmer’s market of its kind, but it’s a welcome fixture in a state that continues to get 90% of its food from outside our borders. We took full advantage of our afternoon at the Irvington Farmers Market, walking around...

The Future of Plugging In

Chapter 3: The Future of Plugging In Electricity has revolutionized the way we live in the past hundred years. It is impossible to overstate the role of power in our lives and we have paid a heavy environmental price tag for our use of hydrocarbons to provide energy to our cities, homes, transportation, and industries. When we look back on this era, it will seem like an inefficient dark age of power generation, using the irreplaceable fuels of the planet to perform tasks that can easily be accomplished by renewable energy. The future of energy is truly exciting. In a...

Will Notre Dame Answer “Pope’s Challenge for Global Warming?”

Letter to the Editor, by Garrett Blad In a letter to the editor on June 17, 2015, the day before Pope Francis released his encyclical on climate change and human ecology, University of Notre Dame President John I. Jenkins wrote on “The pope’s challenge for global warming.” The letter attempts to calm the political rift that no doubt has been widened from the pope’s words on climate change while highlighting the imperative to act due to the impact on the world’s poor. As President Jenkins remarks, “The pope is out not to declare a side but to challenge the consciences of all...

Solar Chat: Ryan Zariki, Whole Sun Designs

Meet Ryan Zaricki, founder extraordinaire of Whole Sun Designs in Wadesville, IN. He grew up knowing that you don’t swim in the Ohio River, you don’t eat the fish, but that never sat right with him. After attending Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in Terre Haute, he headed out to Colorado and worked in green buildings, learning skills in sustainable trades, thinking more critically about electricity and water. He was having fun. His dad needed his help building a house, so he found himself back in Southern Indiana, and he worked for another solar contractor for awhile, moving back and forth...

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Staying in hot water

Renee,

If I flip the breaker on my water heater off in the morning and then turn it on when I return home from work, do I save on electricity or does it use the same amount (or more) to heat the tank back up?
