Seasonal Changes in Electrical Loads

first_imgAugust through December DHW usage has been very constant at about 14 GPD, yet kWh/day has gone from just over 2 to just over 3.Similarly, the 15-cubic-foot chest freezer is in the basement, and the refrigerator is on the main floor, both of which areas are cooler than they were in the summer. Here’s the kWh/month usage combined for both devices: We all know that residential heating load is highest in the winter and cooling load is highest in the summer. What’s a bit more subtle is how the seasons, and how we respond to them, change the loads on other household energy uses.For example: this summer our basement temperature climbed above 70°F, and the incoming water temperature from the water pressure tank was in the mid to upper 60Fs. Here at year’s end, the basement temperature is in the mid-50Fs, and cold water temperature has dropped to as low as 48°F. Both of these changes since summer add load to the water heater, as it must provide more energy to get the lower temperature water up to 120°F, and the tank loses more heat to the colder basement. Here’s a graph of our domestic hot water (DHW) usage in gallons/day (GPD) and the corresponding kWh/day: RELATED ARTICLES Choosing an Energy-Efficient Refrigerator BLOGS BY MARC ROSENBAUM Getting into Hot Water — Part 1Getting into Hot Water — Part 2Getting into Hot Water — Part 3Getting into Hot Water — Part 4Basement Insulation — Part 1Basement Insulation — Part 2center_img The load on the freezer and fridge drops because the spaces they are located in are cooler, so the temperature difference driving their heat gain is lower. In addition, the heat rejection components work more efficiently to reject heat to the surroundings when the air is cooler, so it takes less energy to meet the load.Just as with the water heater, the two effects combine to change the energy usage, but in the case of the freezer and fridge, the energy usage goes down. That reduction isn’t as large as the increase in energy used by the heat pump water heater, unfortunately!Again I find myself wishing for a fridge/freezer that rejects heat to a domestic hot water preheat tank, just as it’s done in commercial refrigeration. But energy will need to get more costly before that device appears on the market.

Case of Toronto van attack suspect Alek Minassian heading straight to trial

first_imgTORONTO – The case of a man accused of killing 10 people in a van attack in north Toronto will skip a preliminary hearing and head straight to trial.Alek Minassian, of Richmond Hill, Ont., faces 10 counts of first-degree murder and 16 counts of attempted murder in connection with the April 23 incident.The 25-year-old is accused of driving a rental van down a busy sidewalk along Yonge Street and plowing into dozens of pedestrians.Court heard on Thursday that the deputy attorney general has granted the Crown’s request to proceed by a direct indictment in the case.Outside court, Minassian’s lawyer said he wasn’t surprised by the decision.“It’s really never been discussed if he’d prefer a preliminary inquiry,” said Boris Bytensky. “It’s something that’s been off the table for quite some time in my mind.”Minassian did not appear in person or by video during the brief hearing.Bytensky said it will be 10 to 18 months before the trial would start. There would be numerous dates where Minassian won’t appear as they work through case management.He wouldn’t comment on whether Minassian would enter a plea beforehand.“I’m not going to discuss what our intentions may or may not be,” he said.Bytensky said he’s concerned about his client’s right to a fair trial given the publicity surrounding the attack.“But I have faith in our criminal justice system,” Bytensky said.“There is at least the possibility of a change of venue. That’s something — I’ll be candid — that I’ve contemplated. I don’t know if that’s something that we’ll be seeking.”Crown lawyer Joe Callaghan told court he has given over more disclosure to the defence, which Bytensky described as “voluminous.”There is a large volume of video evidence, Bytensky said, along with numerous witness statements to go over.Police have previously said they haven’t identified a motive for the attack, but that the evidence they had didn’t warrant terrorism charges.Minassian’s family has said they grieve for the victims, who included eight women and two men ranging in age from 22 to 94.His case will move to the Superior Court of Justice on Dec. 4.last_img read more
