MGM Resorts in partnership with NRG Renew installed a 20-acre solar array atop Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas
Multimedia with summary
MGM Resorts International – in partnership with NRG Renew, the nation’s largest solar energy developer – installed a 20-acre, 6.4MW solar photovoltaic array on the rooftop the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in 2014. The project is but one way MGM Resorts demonstrates its dedication to environmental sustainability. In its first year of operation, the solar array offset the peak electricity demands of the property by as much as 20 percent. That’s enough energy to power 1,000 average-sized homes for a year.
Lithium-ion batteries are the go-to power source for power tools, and wireless charging is making battery-operated power tools even more efficient.
Battery power could be thought of as the most important yet least considered element of power tool operation. Great battery power, runtime and longevity are expected. But a lot of technology and brainpower goes into the ongoing march toward greater productivity. Here’s what the landscape looks like today.

After all, having to get out of bed to turn the heat down or switch off the lights is the ultimate First World problem."
A similar critical story appeared in Forbes last week, and now there are "anti" IOT websites popping up, including one called "internet of useless things."
