It's Moving Time at the NY Homestead

>> Tuesday, March 23, 2010



Hi Everyone,
Just a quick note to let you all know we have moved our blog to Word Press. This blog at Word Press is nearly identical to this Blogger Blog, We are in the process of changing our links, and the construction of the "new" blog. We decided this would be in the best interest of all concerned especially our readers. We now have full control of the site and our own hosting.

The URL http://www.nyhomesteader.com no longer points to this blog it now points to our "new" Word Press Blog.

This Blogger Blog will stay up until which point we deem it essential to take it down.

We hope this does not discourage our readers and we will still be posting great articles, tips, and links about sustainability, alternative and renewable energy, gardening, and homesteading. Join Us at Word Press

We appreciate all of our readers and we hope you join us at http://www.nyhomesteader.com come over and check it out! (we are still in the construction phase so don't mind our mess)

Again Thank You, and we look forward to seeing you at, http://www.nyhomesteader.com Remember to sign up for our regular updates !!


Peace and Prosperity to You,,Happy Homesteading,
Rich @ NY Homesteader

Genesee Community College Lands $457,000 Energy Conservation Grant | MYGreen Education and Career




Genesee Community College has been awarded a $457,661 grant from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) for replacement of campus lighting with new energy-efficient devices, the Board of Trustees learned Monday. The College is part of the State University of New York (SUNY) system.

Through the grant, the College will replace incandescent and fluorescent lighting fixtures and ballasts with more efficient fluorescent lighting and light-emitting diode (LED) bulbs over the next year. LED bulbs are highly energy-efficient and last longer than traditional bulbs, according to Kevin P. Hamilton, Vice President for Finance and Operations. “These changes create greater light output per unit of electrical power used,” Mr. Hamilton said. “And will result in savings of at least $48,000 annually at Genesee.

New Liquid Magnet Solder Eliminates Toxic Lead

I am happy to see this and there are many pro's and con's to it, but anything that is more eco-friendly and less apt to pollute our environment, I'm all for it! 

A team of researchers at Yale University has developed a new kind of magnetic, lead free solder that could be used to manufacture electronics more cheaply and efficiently. That would be a big boost for efforts to manage the growing problem of electronic waste disposal and recycling, because conventional solder is made from lead, a known health hazard.

Lead is a heavy metal that was commonly used in house paint and
