The article “Avoid Explosions! How to prevent bursting batteries”
(p. 44, January/February issue) neglected to point out that modern
inverters, made during the past 25 years, use anti-sparking circuitry
to prevent the ignition of accumulated hydrogen gas. The safety measures outlined in the article are applicable to obsolete equipment.
On page 25 of the November/December issue, in the item “Solar
Ski Factory Recycles Building, Waste,” we misrepresented the conversion from square feet to square meters. The correct figure for the area
of the factory’s solar water-heating panels is 18 square meters.
We regret the errors.
