"My Solar Stu nickname originates from being in a group of friends with two Stuarts. My journey down this road was exploratory at first, as yours is today. I originally created Heat My Home in 2004 because the early solar industry was a wild west environment. Determined to help, I showcased the best tech while promoting reputable installers. I'm proud to have supported this industry that made Britain a world leader in installation standards, and I was commended for my work in 2010 by the Renewable Energy Consumer Code.
I'm delighted to report that I inspired 35,131 new installations at a time before solar panels were considered cool. Today, I help people get it right in an over-saturated marketplace."
In 2004, people thought I was crazy for getting involved in the solar panel industry, and for the first twelve years, they would have been correct. The earliest industry involved a small but encouraging grant incentive for a fledgling solar heating industry. The Blue Skies initiative gave me insight that this technology was worth my […]
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 solar system doesn’t know if workmen are working at the end of the road, so they’re designed […]
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. The era of cheap energy is now a long distant memory. Self-generation can no longer be pigeonholed into the green agenda. In the last few years, adoption has grown […]
The golden age of cheap energy has been over for two decades now! At what future point in time do you take alternatives seriously? Additionally, traditional forms of storing value and increasing value are kaput! In this crazy abnormal world, solar panels never looked so good. New normality with solar panels was last modified: December […]
The disdain for weakness is inbuilt into DNA itself. Do social engineers hold dependent consumers in contempt? Dependency breeds weakness personally, societally, and geopolitically. Therefore, since your electricity, water, transport, education, communications are supplied by those you’re not allowed to criticise, then a personal and national rethink is overdue. Strength through solar panels was last […]
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 […]
