I would assume someone has just garbled the units and they mean MWh. Unless they are specifically referring to the max rate of supply, which is potentially an important factor in the design too (though in practice I suspect rarely a serious constraint).

My remote light switch (which I got due to very random wiring decisions by previous house owner) is battery free. Just takes a bit of a firm press to click on and off. Some piezoelectric device inside to generate the signal.

Got something to say?

Hi
I've seen environment (whether emissions, power, climate change, access to countryside, whatever you think of as "environment") discussed in various threads: Politics (obviously), the Electric Car thread fetcheveryone.com/forum/electric-car-anyone-61481/ , run free's excellent "Competitive Running and Keeping The Environment Clean" fetcheveryone.com/forum/running-competitively-keeping-our-environment-clean-60907/ my own Greta Thunberg thread fetcheveryone.com/forum/greta-thunberg---jfk-for-the-climate-generation-61044/ etc. but I haven't seen a general one.

So here it is. For those interested in the science, the politics, the action for (and I'll state that for me, this is mostly pro-environment, anti-emissions, anti-pollution etc.) and the hope for the future of our planet.
