Ball Systems announces its participation with Purdue University and Whirlpool Corporation on a three-year project to convert a home near the Purdue campus to the most efficient domicile possible - a "net-zero" structure. The home, called the ReNEWW house - for Retrofitted Net-Zero Energy, Water and Waste - will be renovated to install energy- and water-saving features and equipped with solar panels that produce both electricity and hot water. Systems in the home will harvest waste heat from appliances and "gray water" from showers and sinks. Ball Systems is providing data acquisition and system management software in support of the project.
Ball Systems designs, develops, and delivers custom test systems and produces comprehensive build-to-print systems for companies creating or manufacturing critical electronic or electro-mechanical components for automotive, aerospace and defense and consumer appliance applications.
