- Austin will be the first major Texas city to experiment with giving cash to low-income families to keep them housed as the cost of living skyrockets in the capital city. Nearly a year after an electrical fire heavily damaged G.

Carver Middle School, Waco ISD officials are set to break ground on the new building.

  • Staff took Thursday to review some of the new safety measures that are expected to be put into place.
  • That information is still being finalized and has not been released publicly. The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help in finding a Huxley couple who both have felony warrants for prohibited sexual conduct.

Strong storms and minor wind damage in southern Bell County Thursday caused some fear for area residents still reeling from an EF-3 tornado that tore through the area on April 12.

More than 200 high school students from across the state piled into Texas State Technical College in Waco. Know Where to Hunt, LLC was formed by avid outdoor enthusiasts with a mission to link responsible hunters to prime hunting land.

The relationship between energy and power

We accomplish this by building solid relationships with the landowners and bridging the gap to our active members.

We work throughout the year with the landowners to ensure that their wishes are being met (if not exceeded). The product of these relationships is better and more diverse hunting opportunities for Know Where to Hunt members.

We look forward to partnering with you! Here at Know Where to Hunt, LLC, our overall goal is to give you the best outdoor experience we can deliver.

  • We love to hunt and we recognize it as a privilege.
  • But over the years we have learned from local landowners and hunters themselves, that many of the waterfowl hunters have never asked for permission and often just assume that because the property is NOT posted, that means they can hunt it.
  • Through our relationships, we have found this is not the case!We understand, when the wind is blowing and the ducks are decoying, it's hard not to want to stay all day and have a blast.

Your Local Resource

We have also seen firsthand how not allowing the birds to rest will negatively affect the hunting. That is why we monitor each field's usage closely and institute Rest Days when necessary.

  • This allows the birds to come back into the fields - keeping them viable for hunting.
  • The Know Where to Hunt team holds higher expectations of its leadership AND members.
  • We believe in following the rules, honoring the wishes of the landowner, being grateful for the day's harvest, and hunting with integrity.Any landowner that has partnered with Know Where to Hunt, LLC to allow its members to hunt their land, is doing so because he/she wants you to enjoy yourselves in a responsible manner.
  • We all need to remember, this is their land, not yours and not ours.
  • Anytime we are hunting, we are guests and should always conduct ourselves in such a manner.
  • The landowner can back-out ANYTIME he/she wishes and within a few hours, all "Know Where to Hunt Member's Only" signs will be pulled and replaced with “No Hunting" signs - rendering that property unavailable for hunting!
  • This is the last thing we all want to see.Therefore, we strongly encourage our members to not only take great care of the property they have been allowed to hunt, but also to look for opportunities toimprove it,protect it, andshare it with others.
  • Know Where to Hunt has two Membership packages to choose from; Full-Season and Pay-As-You-Go!Full-Season Membership $1065Our Full-Season Membership package offers the biggest bang for your buck!
  • This membership gives you unlimited bookings throughout the season!
  • It also comes with a Free 1-Hunt Guest Pass so you can bring a friend out and let him/her see what Know Where to Hunt is all about!Pay-As-You-Go Membership $450Our pay-as-you-go Membership package is a great option for someone who only gets out a couple times each season!

It is also a great choice if you have some buddies visiting from out-of-town and you want to take them out for a few hunts. With this package, you pay a field rental fee of $100 for each hunt booked.Each member can only have one field booked at a time.

Member comments

This keeps members from locking down a certain field, allowing other members the opportunity to hunt the field.Know Where to Hunt management closely monitors all field activity.

If a particular field is getting hunted a lot, we institute mandatory "REST" days. This gives the birds a break and allows them to repopulate the field!

A lot of people, energy professionals included, don't fully understand the difference between kW and kWh.

If you are one of them, fear not, this article should set you straight! Energy calculations, and energy saving, become much easier when you understand the difference between a kW and a kWh. If you're working with energy on a regular basis, and you don't fully understand the difference between a kW and a kWh, we promise you that taking 20 minutes or so to fully understand the concepts explained in this article will save you many headaches in the future.

Quite likely it will save you some embarrassment at some point too, as you'll be much less likely to make embarrassing calculation errors.

  • (If at any point you'd like to thank us for our help in reducing headaches and embarrassment, please point your colleagues and website visitors towards this article so that it can help them too.
  • Or, if you find it useful, you could buy or recommend our Energy Lens software – we really appreciate the customers that keep us in business.).
  • Anyway, that's more than enough preamble..
  • Let's get to it..

What is the difference between a kW and a kWh? Well, the difference is really very simple. Though it only seems simple after you understand it. kWh is a measure of energy, whilst kW is a measure of power..

OK, but a lot of people don't really understand the difference between energy and power either.. So let's start at the beginning:. Energy is a measure of how much fuel is contained within something, or used by something over a specific period of time.

The kWh is a unit of energy. (A physicist might throw their arms up in disgust at how we've over-simplified one of the fundamentals of the universe. But fortunately we're not writing this for physicists..).

The kilowatt hour (kWh) is a unit of energy.. The Calorie is a unit of energy.. And the joule (J) is a unit of energy.. And these aren't the only units of energy – there's the BTU, the watt hour (Wh), the therm, and plenty of obscure units that you're unlikely to have heard of.

Terms in the News

It's a bit like how you can measure distance in units of feet, metres, miles, km and so on. The distance between New York and London is fixed, but you can express that distance as 3,459 miles, or 5,567 km, or 18,265,315 feet etc.

Similarly, you can express a measure of energy in joules, or Calories, or kWh, or BTU etc.

  • When people talk about a particular biscuit containing 172 Calories, they're talking about the amount of energy contained within that biscuit.
  • 172 Calories is equivalent to around 0.2 kWh. (That's with "172 Calories" meaning 172 kilocalories, which is the unit that is almost always meant when people talk about the "calories" in food.).
  • Energy can change form. We could eat the biscuit to provide us with energy. Or we could burn the biscuit and turn it into heat energy.

Given the right equipment we could turn the heat energy from the burning biscuit into electrical energy to run lights and fans and so on.


Some energy would be wasted in the conversion process, but it should be possible to get that burning biscuit to run a light bulb for at least a few seconds. Probably the best option would be to eat the biscuit, but hopefully you get the general idea – the biscuit contains energy that can be converted into different forms..

Electricity and other fuels supply energy in a form that we can use to run the equipment in our buildings. Our biscuits contain a certain amount of energy – 172 Calories or 0.2 kWh per biscuit.

The importance of knowing the units of your source data

But biscuit energy is not in a form that we can easily use to run the equipment in our buildings.. However, we can easily make use of electricity.

And, provided we've got a gas or oil burner, we can easily make use of gas or oil. One form of energy comes through wires (isn't electricity clever?!), and others come as gases, liquids, or solids that we burn (to turn into heat).

At the end of the day it's all just usable energy in different forms.

  • We can express quantities of these forms of energy in terms of kWh.
  • We buy or generate the kWh of energy, and we use it to fuel the equipment in our buildings.
  • A typical building uses more energy over long periods of time than it does over short periods of time:.
  • On February 16th, 2018 a building might have used 95 kWh.
  • Over the week starting April 9th, 2018 it might have used 550 kWh.

From January 1st, 2017 to December 31st, 2017 it might have used 31,250 kWh. Given the three figures above, we can easily see that the building used more energy over the course of 2017 than it did on February 16th, 2018.

  • No surprises there. However, we can't immediately compare the efficiency of the building over each of those periods.
  • If a kWh figure covers a day, we can only compare it fairly with other kWh figures that cover a day.
  • If a kWh figure covers a week, we can only fairly compare it with other kWh figures that cover a week.
  • If we have the kWh from February and the kWh from March, we can't really compare the two figures fairly, because February is typically 28 days long, whilst March is 31 days long.

This article explains more about the problems that arise if you compare the kWh used in one month with the kWh used in the next.

  • Energy consumption expressed in terms of kWh doesn't often mean much unless you also know the length of the period that the kWh were measured over.
  • And it's difficult to make fair comparisons between kWh figures unless they are all from periods of exactly the same length.
  • Figures expressed in terms of power (e.g. kW) make many things more straightforward.. Power is the rate at which energy is generated or used.
  • The kW is a unit of power. (Strictly speaking energy isn't actually generated or used, it's converted from one form into another.

Like how the energy stored in oil is converted into heat when you burn it. And like how the electricity that runs a fan is converted into the motion of the fan blade (kinetic energy).

What is energy?

But this is a distinction that people generally don't worry about when they're staring at an excessive energy bill and wondering how they can "use" less energy.).

  • So power is a measure of how fast something is generating or using energy. The higher a building's kW, the faster that building is using energy.
  • Joules per second (J/s) is a nice, clear unit of power. Joules per second makes it obvious that power is the rate at which energy is being generated or used.
  • It's like how miles per hour makes it obvious that speed is the rate at which distance is being travelled.

The watt (W) is another unit of power.

What is power?

It doesn't make it quite so obvious what power means. But the watt is actually just another name for Joules per second. J/s and W are the same thing.

Just some bright spark decided that equations and whatnot would be simpler if power had its own unit (instead of being expressed using units of energy and time together).

  • And they named this unit after James Watt, the Scottish inventor who had an important hand in the development of the steam engine.
  • So, joules per second (J/s) is a measure of power.. The watt (W) is a measure of power.. And the kilowatt (kW) is a measure of power too (one kW being 1000 watts).
  • Items of equipment like boilers, electricity generators, and wind turbines, take energy in one form (e.g.
  • gas or oil or wind) and turn it into another (e.g. heat or electricity). There's a limit to how much useful stuff these things can generate, and that is expressed as the rate at which they can generate energy.
  • Which is, by definition, their power. Consider a 10 kW wind turbine.. Provided it has the optimum level of wind (which probably doesn't happen nearly as often as its owner would like), it can generate 10 kW of power.

How long does it take to generate 10 kW..? Wrong question! That's a question that would only be asked by somebody that didn't understand what power was.

It's a bit like asking "how long does it take to travel 10 miles per hour?" It makes no sense. 10 kW is the rate at which the wind turbine can generate energy, not the amount of energy that it can generate in a certain period of time. The two are closely connected, but we'll get to that shortly.

Items of electrical equipment like light bulbs, computers, and fans, take energy in the form of electricity, and use it to do useful things for us.

Really they're converting the energy into other forms (heat, motion etc.), but we say that they're "using" it because we don't really care about what exactly is happening to it, we just want our equipment to work when we switch it on and stop when we switch it off.
