Fully assembled PiGI kits available

Christmas came a little early: The guys over at TDRM are extending their monitoring network and ran a small scale PiGI - Raspberry Pi Geiger-Müller Interface production batch with a little surplus, in the hope to find more people, who would like to get a pre-assembled, ready-to-fly module for themselves.

PiGI PCBs are now available on pcbs.io

Nordrunner produced and shared PiGI - Raspberry Pi Geiger-Müller Interface PCBs on pcbs.io, which are now available for everyone. If you haven't had a chance to get PCBs from fehlfarbe or shipping from Germany wasn't an option for you, you can check it out on https://pcbs.io/share/r1Dq6.

Happy Hacking and tick counting.

Blockchain based Micro-Grids

Here is a great story about the beginnings to autonomously produce, share and manage local energy harvest and consumption in blockchain based micro-grids:

The pilot program was successful enough that the microgrid will go live later this year. The next phase of the project will involve 300 households or small businesses that have signed letters of interest, along with 50 generation sites—all solar except for one small wind turbine. In total, those producers generate about 1.5 megawatts of electricity, still just a small portion of the needs of Brooklyn’s nearly 3 million residents. But the point is not to replace the whole grid, but to show that small grids can serve local communities.
