Learn about PV solar panels and EV-charging.
Solar panels today
enhanced with PV.
Power My Home is my enthusiasm for solar panels.
Go your own way by generating electricity, hot water and possibly EV mileage for free. PV solar panels enhanced by EV-charging, heat converters and battery storage.
Amazingly, these give three-decades of loyal service.

PV solar panels operate on most cloudy days.
Monocrystalline is the most popular type of solar panel and work alongside plugins for additional benefits.Learn more
PV & EV-charging.
The power of the sun brought to your electric vehicle.
This amalgamation brings free motoring-mileage to shield people from the rising costs of this crazy world.Learn more
"PV and EV's work brilliantly together to free homeowners from the rising costs of the 21st-century."
Contrary to general belief, PV solar panels do generate on most cloudy days in the UK and actually, work more efficiently in more moderate temperatures and climates.
Now that's cleared-up, let's get down to it.
Revolutionising the way you think about energy is paramount in today's world, and PV's increased demand globally has demonstrated that others feel the same too.
Traditional suppliers can only guarantee 'black energy' prices for a couple of years.
Additionally, EV-charging is a motivation for installing PV solar panels too.
It's always been this way; until one day it isn't.Learn more
PV is all grown-up today with export tariff options.
In January 2020, the Smart Export Guarantee launched in the UK for PV adopters to sell surplus power from their solar panels.
For solar pioneers, this was terrific news as traditional energy companies now 'compete' for real green energy on the open energy market.
Fantastic for self-generators and the energy industry.
This policy change means a healthier return-on-investment, especially when PV solar panels are working alongside other additional plugin's and with a long-term outlook.
Solar panels are exciting again.Learn more
The costs of installing solar panels have massively decreased over the last decade.
In 2004, I first witnessed an extensive 4kW photovoltaic solar system getting installed for over fifteen grand without any of the plugin benefits that we see today.
Today, a similarly sized-system is 75% cheaper than what the earliest solar pioneers paid.
The significant decrease in price comes down to larger-scaled and more efficient manufacturing processes, so panel price's and other equipment costs make-up 60% of costs.
Installation costs and miscellaneous represent 40% of the final price of installing.
Interestingly, return-on-investment is much better today thanks to plugin extras.Learn more
The original reason I developed Power My Home back in 2004 was to tackle this very issue. I wanted to guide the earliest adopters towards ethical installers.
Back then, the early solar industry was a minefield of over-charging, dodgy salespeople, questionable technologies and careless installers.
Today, I'm happy to report that the modern solar industry proudly has the world's highest standards of building compliance.

PV-systems generate, on average, 300 days out of 365.
In the pioneering days of photovoltaic-ownership, it becomes habitual to switch your washing machine on when it's sunny. This principle adopted to charging EV's will give you savings on its own.
However, modern life doesn't allow time for such discipline; therefore, a battery storage device is helpful today because it automatically received the charge in your absence and passes to your vehicle within your schedule.
This 'shine and store' principle is what occurs with public charge-points commonly seen at motorway service stations, thus giving its operators further savings on its operating costs.
The best purchase you'll make this century.Learn more
"Salvation from energy costs is no longer a pipe dream with solar panels in the United Kingdom."
Solar made easy.
Freedom is what all people aspire. Most view it in terms of a windfall, but for those who have attained, say it's about cutting threads. One such thread is energy expenditure:
- Recognise the futility of Switch N' Save.
- Acknowledge photovoltaics work well in the UK.
- Choose with or without battery storage.
"Real energy freedom."
