An extraordinary journey towards a world enhanced by PV solar panels

I don’t buy electric vehicles anymore

December 13th, 2022

A common question is, “Will my solar panels still give me power under blackout conditions?” “Not without a battery storage device, and not all storage devices can offer a standalone backup service”, is my general response.

A PV system doesn’t know if workmen are working at the end of the road, so they’re designed to prevent output under blackout conditions. Some battery storage devices can create a closed loop in the home, thus converting to an off-grid system on demand, but not all.

Solar panels are now common sense

March 18th, 2021

Why are solar panels common sense today? Adapting to external forces is what solar panels offer. Today, astute people are adapting to homeworking by installing PV.

Solar panels and working from home

April 9th, 2020

Solar panels and working at home go together like cheese and toast. Businesses will twig that they can dramatically cut expenses by shifting energy costs towards the employees and save on office space too.

It’ll be this thinking that will bounce the economies back once the starting pistol gets fired. Commuter costs come down, but working from home means higher energy costs.

The beauty of PV solar panels

February 18th, 2020

Sixteen years later, I’m reflecting on my efforts to encourage solar panel adoption. PV solar panels have brought me vast amounts of joy in my life and had ups and downs like any relationship.

The inside-industry nickname and aptly named Solar Coaster Ride of the last decade never dampened my enthusiasm for these technologies. Never let the naysayers curb your passion.
