Ecotech project - unfolding

November 24, 2012


Hi, I'm Shay from the ecotech department at BBHS Eco group. Our current project is to hook the school up to power monitors to see how our energy usage suddenly becomes less and less as the school becomes more economical and to continue our contact with ecotricity, a small but great energy provider in the UK. We are currently in contact with ecotricity following one of the previous blog posts concerning the raspberry pi - a revolutionary computer designed specifically with programming in mind, what makes this computer unique is the fact that it is only the size of a credit card. You could pick one of these up for around £30 online. Back to the topic on hand, ecotricity contacted us when they saw a blog post we made about raspberry pi's as they use these computers at ecotricity. Paul from ecotricity has been in contact with us for several weeks now and has offered to help us out when connecting a power monitor to a raspberry pi and then after doing this we will be on our own to continue our endeavour to find the compatible software which will work with the version of Linux we run on the raspberry pi as well as being compatible with the power monitor we hope to purchase in the not to distant future. During our endeavour, we did some research into ecotricity's quality as an energy provider and from what we have found, they are quite a good provider and we hope to look further in to changing over to them... 
To find out more about our project, please visit our page (BBHS) on the solar schools website and if you could, please donate as little as £5 which could go towards saving the world from global warming an carbon emissions, if you do donate please let them know that you were sent over to donate by me, shay, 
Thank you for reading,
Shay.
