[edit] Images

Hi, I am a new Greenlivingpedia user, I have been editing at wikipedia for the last 4 years and recently discovered Greenlivingpedia. I was wondering if anyone knows anything about how I might go about getting some images on Greenlivingpedia onto Wikipedia? We are seriously lacking in images to do with protest rallies, sustainable building and major projects like the desalination plant and north-south pipeline. Nick carson 21:24, 1 January 2010 (CST)

Thanks Peter. I will try and get some of these images onto Wikipedia articles. Look forward to editing here more often! Nick carson 19:59, 17 January 2010 (CST)

[edit] Power Use of pumping water


I'm worried about the amount of power the pipeline uses.

This article says "18 megawatts of power .. each day." But power is a measure of instantaneous energy use, as opposed to energy, which is a meanure over a period of time. So I'd like to know how many kwH of energy are used each year.

Does anyone have any information about this?

The energy used would depend on how often they ran the pumps. Multiplying the kW by the hours operated in a day would yield kWh. To the annual figure you would need to add the kWh for each day the pumps operated. The Victorian Government may not disclose this information. Hopefully they will.
