PV solar panels.

Lasts longer than your mortgage.

PV solar panels operate even on cloudy days in the UK, and in some cases can heat-up the hot water tank. These are the most popular form of sun-powered technologies today and will still be generating for their owners in three decades time.

"PV and EV's work brilliantly together to free people from the rising costs of living in the 21st-century."

PV solar panels & water heating.

Sun-powered hot water.

Evacuated tubes and flat-plate panels were the most common form of solar heating until the advent of PV-powered heating converters. This almost magical technology uses the excess electricity from your photovoltaic panels to keep your hot water tank heated.

PV solar panels & battery storage.

Storage for day and night.

PV (photovoltaic) solar panels with battery storage capabilities are taking off globally and that ultimately allows solar technology to be used day and night. This breakthrough has been significant, and thus incorporating storage is game-changing.

Evacuated solar tubes.

Sun-powered water tanks.

Evacuated solar tubes are an alternative water heating system, developed especially for northern European countries. Vacuum heating tubes use the sun's radiation, to heat your tank or swimming pool and contrary to popular belief, actually work throughout all four seasons.

Flat-plate solar heating panels.

Like a Velux style window.

Use the sun to generate hot water with solar heating panels. Also known as flat-plates, these are popular with households who have a hot water storage tank that requires vast amounts of electricity to run. People have been reducing energy demands with this more traditional solar technology.

Thermodynamic solar panels.

Heat-pump and solar heating.

Thermodynamic solar panels are a hybrid heat pump technology that supplements the heating of your hot water and space heating and reduce the use of expensive fuels to heat your home; photovoltaics will be more beneficial for you.

The battery storage plugin.

There are brilliant battery storage systems on the UK market that are tried and trusted around the world. PV and battery storage devices are a great option to benefit from all your solar power 24/7.

The water heating plugin.

PV-to-hot water converters can heat a traditional hot water tank by diverting some of your generated daytime electricity toward your heating coil. This technology eliminates the need to use your boiler for a good proportion of the year.

The electric vehicle plugin.

A transition towards an electric vehicle is an astute move, but powering your car with photovoltaics is genuinely a right turn away from the geopolitical nonsense. This technology gives adopters real freedom in the world with every petroleum free mile.

"PV installed in the 1960's are still generating electricity today. A real testament to this technologies longevity."

Photovoltaic solar panels work on most cloudy days

What you believe to be true, is it true? Or do you believe that it is true because you got taught that it is true and never looked any further?

A time-served installer once told me this analogy for thinking about electricity.

"Exported electricity is a bit like cats! It goes wherever the food is best."

In reality, it's just electrons bouncing up and down a cable. They leave your house because your home does not need them and head for straight to the nearest source that does, usually your neighbours.

The need to reduce dependence on imported power should be your motivation for installing a PV solar panel system. Different people have widely varying reasons ranging from the familiar aspects to preparing for retirement.

I think, remaining entirely dependent on the network, mainly long-term would be a mistake. One thing I have learned since I have been working on this Power My Home project is how delicate the global energy market is. Climate, terrorism, wars, global politics and many other unforeseen events have the potential to disrupt what we have all become so accustomed.

They say "forewarned is forearmed" and it is this that I ask you to consider when pondering if you should purchase an installation. Revolutionising the way you think of energy is paramount, and since I have thrown myself into the world of solar panels, the number of homes with them on their roofs have shown me that many other people think the same too.

The key to a successful solar panel installation is research. That is why I develop this website as a useful resource for enthusiasts.

Always get three quotes, never sign up for "special deals on the night" and compare what type of PV panels you are installing on your roof. PV solar panels can vary on performance and price, but I am pleased to announce that over the years, I managed to help tens of thousands of people contact trustworthy installers and get quality panels at a reasonable price.

Your current energy supplier can only guarantee your import costs for a couple of years at the most. Time to find a more long-term solution for this crazy world.

"People are recognising the futility of Switch N' Save and going your way own way with energy using today's technology."

PV solar panels and EV uptake in the UK.

In a nutshell.

Reducing reliance; promoting independence.
