While this Web site is based in the UK, it contains some very practical advice that can transcend borders. It has a side menu for navigation and you can find featured articles on the main page. While I was visiting, some of the featured articles were about battery power, hydro electric power and understanding power distribution.
Each of the following categories on the side menu have a menu that slides out when you scroll over the title of the category.
