Coming Soon: Wireless Electricity for Your Home

(Editor’s Note: After reading, please join our survey found at the end our post. We appreciate your insight on this new technology. We’ll keep you posted with news and updates regarding this invention. Join our Facebook Page after. Thanks!)

Wireless electricity will be coming to our shores in the very near future. That is if our government agencies will embrace this technology today.

The technology is called highly resonant wireless power transfer and the Inventors uses the same principle as to what we use today in our cooking, Induction Cooking. Induction uses magnets to create energy and in this invention, instead of releasing heat, it produces electricity because of a receiver that induces electricity that powers our every day gadgets and appliances.

a single power source that can charge all your lights, appliances, and even cars - wirelessly!

The idea is to create a single source of electricity and eliminate any outlets in the house or any wirings that could trip you or harm your kids in the process of discovery. The transmitter emits magnetic waves so this is not harmful to human or to pets in the house. It’s actually going to be revolutionary because it will mean huge savings for people building new homes in the future.

Witricity, the founder of the technology, are busy studying how this could be used to power different appliances in the house that requires more wattage and how it could send varying charges needed to power cars or refrigerators. Dr. Katie Hall, CTO of Witricity, expects to complete their study by 2016.

Read here how it works.

Exciting developments as we will soon see a more clutter-free home that moms and geeks would love in the very near future.

It’s a pain how much we have to pay this month

Meralco said today that the full implementation of their electricity rate hike of PhP3.44/KWh this December won’t be felt this month — rather it will take in staggered payment forms but don’t jump for joy just yet because the petition has yet to be approved by the Energy Regulatory Commission that approves those kinds of arrangements but I think this is just formality.

New in the Market would still want our loyal readers to take the high road and be wise in using this utility. Why pay more even if you will do this in staggered payments? We encourage our dear readers to still try to reduce use of your electricity and elect to pay less in the coming months.

We have come up with different solutions you can do (albeit with some sacrifices) to regulate consumption of your home electricity. Stop regretting tomorrow and read our tips and save on cost today.
