Product descriptions

Mobile Solar Systems. MS 100 solar-powered jobsite generators range from 9 kWh to 18 kWh of battery storage capacity, 0.95 kWh to 4.68 kWh production per day, and 1.1 kW to 3.5 kW of output power. The Wells Cargo trailers can be towed behind most four- or six-cylinder vehicles, and the products can include AC input or diesel and gasoline generator charging capability. 805.466.1006.

Coulomb Technologies. Designed for residential and light commercial use, the CT500 Level II ChargePoint 7.2-kW vehicle charging station is compatible with electric cars that comply with the SAE J1772 plug-in electric vehicle charging standard. A card reader option is available to prevent energy theft. The compact unit is compatible with Levitons Evr-Green pre-wired mounting system, providing for simple plug-in installation. 408.841.4500.

Drywood Products. Providing a structural sheathing with a laminated ice and water barrier, Drywood roof and wall panels eliminate the need for felt paper, ice and water shield, and an air infiltration barrier, says the firm. A seam tape provides moisture resistance at abutting edges, valleys, roof/wall intersections, and ridges. Drywood can be used under shingles, slate, tiles, and wall veneers and siding. 309.303.0514.

Bosch. The 800 Plus dishwasher uses as little as 1.5 gallons of water per cycle, 70% less than average dishwashers, and operates at an industry-leading 180 kWh per year, according to the company. The Energy Starrated unit includes a triple filtration system; an improved load sensor; a four-part leak protection system; and a flow-through water heater. Combining a noise-reducing brushless direct-current drain pump, improved insulation, and dosage assist to eliminate spray against the door, the unit achieves a sound rating of 40 dBA. 800.921.9622.

LG Hausys. Large transparent chips in Hi-Macs Galaxy solid surfacing provide a shimmering effect reminiscent of space. The non-porous, Greenguard-certified surfacing comes in eight colors in 1/2-inch-thick sheets measuring 30 inches by 145 inches; custom lengths are available. 877.853.1805.

Fireclay Tile. Debris Series ceramic tile is made from local factory dust and California clay, giving it a recycled content of more than 60%, says the firm. The series includes 112 glaze colors and comes in sizes from 1 inch by 2 inches to 12 inches square. 408.275.1182.

Legrand/Pass & Seymour. With pre-set dimming control, automatic lighting shutoff, and optional automatic lighting activation, the Dimming Multi-way Convertible Occupancy Sensor allows homeowners to maximize energy savings as well as lighting levels. Passive infrared technology distinguishes between a person and background space, shutting off when motion is no longer detected over a range from 15 seconds to 30 minutes. Dimming is controlled via a push-button switch. 877.295.3472.

HomerWood. Reclaimed Hardwood flooring is crafted from slow-growth Appalachian timber from deconstructed barns in Ohio, Virginia, and Pennsylvania. The kiln-dried wood features character markings such as nail holes, cracks, and mineral streaks. It comes with the companys low-luster Oil Naturals finish. 814.827.3855.

Armstrong. Origins cabinets are crafted with PureBond urea-formaldehyde-free hardwood plywood using the ESP-certified companys Genuine Allwood all-plywood construction. The Origins option is available with most styles, including Calibra, shown here in Bordeaux and honey. 800.228.1804.

Rinnai. The RH360 solar reheat kit provides efficient, consistent tankless backup for solar water heating. Previous other solar tankless backup solutions fed the hot line from the solar tank directly to the tankless backup unit, which would heat water when the temperature started to drop, which could lead to temperature fluctuations, the firm says. The RH360 kicks in only when the water temperature in the solar storage tank drops below a pre-set point, drawing the coldest water from the bottom of the solar storage tank to the tankless unit and returning it to the top of the tank, helping to maintain consistent-temperature hot water delivery, the maker says; minimal tank mixing allows for optimization of solar gain, and the elimination of off-cycle thermal circulation decreases heat loss. 866.746.6241.
