Learn about PV solar panels and EV-charging in the United Kingdom.
enhanced with PV.
People are going there own way by generating electricity, hot water and free vehicle mileage. Today, PV solar panels enhanced by EV-charging, heat converters and battery storage are handing the balance of power back to homeowners.
PV solar panels.
Lasts longer than your mortgage.
Photovoltaics operate on most cloudy days in the UK. This misunderstood technology is the most popular type of solar panel today and will still be generating power in three decades time for its owners.Learn more
PV & EV-charging.
There's a long road ahead.
PV brings the power of the sun to your future EV (electric vehicle). This game-changing attitude brings free motoring-mileage to pioneering motorists across the UK.Learn more

"The video that started it all" - Solar Stu.
"PV and EV's work brilliantly together to free people from the rising costs of 21st-century living."
PV & water heating.
New PV-powered hot water.
Evacuated tubes were the most common form of solar heating until the advent of PV-powered heating converters. This technology uses excess electricity to heat your hot water tank.Learn more
PV & battery storage.
New PV-power day and night.
Photovoltaic solar panels with battery storage capabilities are taking off globally because it expands the benefits of PV-tech well into the evenings and nighttime hours.Learn more
Evacuated solar tubes.
Sun-powered hot water tanks.
Evacuated solar tubes are an alternative water heating system, developed for northern European countries. Vacuumed tubes use the sun's radiation, to heat your tank or swimming pool.Learn more
Solar heating panels.
Designed like a Velux-style window.
Use the sun to generate hot water with solar heating panels. Also known as flat-plates, these were popular with households who have a hot water storage tank.Learn more
Thermodynamic solar panels.
Hybrid heat-pump with solar heating.
Thermodynamic solar panels are a hybrid heat pump technology that supplements the heating of your hot water and space heating and thus reduce the cost of heating your home.Learn more
"PV-powered people recognise the futility of Switch N' Save and choose to go their own way."
Contrary to general belief, PV solar panels do generate on most cloudy days in the UK and actually, work more efficiently in moderate temperatures and climates.
A passionate installer once told me this analogy about electricity.
"Electrons are like cats; they go wherever the food is best."
In reality, they're just bouncing up and down a wire towards your TV or new electric vehicle.
EV-charging is a popular motivation for installing PV solar panels today.
Additionally, one thing I've realised since the early days of creating Power My Home is how fragile the global energy market is.
They say "forewarned is forearmed" and it's this that I ask you to consider when pondering.
Revolutionising the way you think of energy is paramount, and since I have thrown myself into the world of solar panels, the rising global demand for PV solar technology have shown me that others think the same too.
The key to a successful solar panel installation is research. That's why I developed this research tool for enthusiasts and beginners alike.
Always get three quotes, compare sizes and additional plugin extras to gain maximum benefits from your purchase. PV solar panels can vary in performance and price dramatically, but I've managed to help tens of thousands of people since 2004.
Traditional energy suppliers can only guarantee your energy costs for a couple of years at the most - time for a more long-term solution for this crazy world.Learn more
