• Bourns College of Engineering building powers with energy worth 1.1 million AA batteries

    We all know AA batteries to contain a single watt-hour of electricity. And to power up the new University of California, Riverside’s Bourns College of Engineering building, you’d probably require about 1.1 million of them in all! And these are enough to cover the bottom of a 50 meter long Olympic sized pool! The system installed in the building uses high-end lithium-ion batteries and donated by Winston Global Energy CEO Winston Chung worth $2.5 million. Yet another building to go green, the world could do with more of these, given the current environmental situation today.

    We applaud the University of California on the effort put into turning this building green and we look forward to more green developments on the university’s part!
