University of California Deploys 1.1Mega Watt Green Battery to Power Building

Today, almost everything runs on batteries. Take a look at your phone, tablet, calculator or even your watch. They all run on batteries and these small devices are what helped us get this far into technology. There are different kinds of batteries and there are different ways of using them, but we never really use them for big time purposes like powering up an entire house and that’s because of the lack of power that it can generate.

But it looks like the University of  California found a way to use a green battery to produce 1.1 mega watts. They also use solar power and wind power. What it does is that it stores the required electricity overnight and uses it when the students are present so that they can use electricity without ever really wasting the city’s electricity.

This is a first for many buildings and is considered to be a blueprint for upcoming cellular towers and green power sources. This effort by the University of  Columbia is seen as a very brilliant idea and will be used in other power consuming sources as well.

Whether if it’s purely for the reason of getting noticed or doing something for the environment, they have done their part in both as not only did they start what seems like a future revolution  but they also are getting recognized for it.
