“Why PV solar panels are just common sense? There are some things in life which are just common sense.”

The application of sunscreen, for example, so you don’t burn in the sun, wrapping up warm on cold winter mornings and wearing waterproof shoes when it’s raining. These are all common sense precautions.

PV solar panels are just common sense in today's world.

PV solar panels are just common sense in today’s world.

The latest common sense approach to modern life is to install PV solar panels to protect your family from undependable and increasingly expensive fossil fuels.

The world has changed dramatically over the last few years, and the era of cheap, plentiful energy is now a distant memory for us all. (more…)

“In a nutshell, I describe our PV solar installation to friends and family as being “good for the planet” because it is “renewable energy generation with a zero carbon footprint.”

There's nothing more powerful than when a PV's time has come.

There’s nothing more powerful than when PV’s time has come.

We all know that human civilisation is depleting the planet of natural resources (fossil fuels and minerals) and in doing so is dangerously polluting the atmosphere with greenhouse gases causing a climate warming. Governments around the world are aware of the problems this will cause and the potential breakdown of business, as usual, .

It is, therefore, our duty as informed citizens to help mitigate effects. Individually, we can do only a little, but if many people contribute to the total impact will be significant. (more…)

“An uncertain world has made investing in stocks and shares a risky business and also the reason you are getting such a low rate of return on your savings (0.1– 4.0%)”

PV solar panels are a great investment opportunity

Right now, but there is a way to get upwards of 8-10% rate of return on your money with PV solar panels.

Yes, you did read correctly! PV solar panel installations are very popular right now, for one big reason.

People are re-investing their low return savings funds into higher gain solar panel installations to make more money, the concept of which, before the credit crunch, would have been laughable, but the world is changing and changing fast. (more…)

“If you are reading this, you are fortunate. You could live in one of the many thousands of homes which could benefit from a window of opportunity called the feed-in tariff scheme for solar panels.”

Join the PV solar panels revolution.

Join the PV solar panels revolution.

Introduced in April 2010, the scheme was designed to kick-start the solar panels industry in the UK within the domestic and commercial sectors.

The feed-in tariffs are divided into two sections and are known as the ‘Clean Energy Cash Back Scheme’ for PV (photovoltaic) solar panel technology and the ‘Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme’ for the solar heating panels and heat pump technology. (more…)

The power of the sun created this rich and beautiful biodiversity of life which we see around us today.

Simple chemical reactions have transformed the atmosphere of our planet, with its diverse plant life, into the oxygen-rich air that we breathe today.

Just like the essential photosynthesising plants on Earth, modern-day solar panels have developed into a higher-efficiency technology that we now install onto homes and businesses throughout the world. (more…)

The financial benefits of installing PV solar panel technology in homes and commercial premises across the United Kingdom are currently the primary appeal to many when considering this home improvement investment.

Only around 10% of customers are installing for environmental reasons, with the rest installing because of rising energy costs.

Most people look at PV solar panels at a domestic level because they are only getting two or three percent interest on an average ISA or a bank savings account. (more…)

“Wouldn’t it be good if, instead of paying high prices for your domestic or commercial power, you were able to generate most of your energy and your energy supplier paid you for the full amount that you produce?”

We love our PV solar panels.

We love our PV solar panels.

The buzz about PV solar panels came since the government introduced the feed-in tariffs scheme last year.

The idea of solar panels being used to generate power for your home or business can now be a reality for the majority of homeowners and companies and is now available throughout the United Kingdom.

PV solar panels are a thriving industry now. Homeowners are now starting to understand the financial benefits of solar technologies, including solar heating panels, including the money they are likely to save on their heating bills. (more…)

How PV solar panels and cells work?

This electricity is then distributed around the property to power appliances and lighting, or if surplus to requirement, it is sold to the National Grid network.

The solar cells are the power stations of every PV system.

PV solar panels help sell a property

PV solar panels have had an unexpected benefit. They increase the value and sell-ability of your home.”

The PV solar panel apocalypse in the UK between 2012 and 2018.

This situation only applies if you install the solar panels yourself. Companies which offer free PV solar panels, and rent your roof space, will have the opposite effect.

You do need to make sure that you own the PV solar panels because solar panels offered by a free solar panels company will quickly become a white elephant for anyone selling a property which has solar panels held by a third party.

A PV solar panel installation makes a house more desirable to any future home buyers if it is part of the property than one with free solar panels, which is not. Also, estate agents have seen averagely priced properties with solar installed selling for up to 5-10% more than properties without PV solar panels.

Global oil prices hit a two year high yesterday, with warnings that the soaring cost of raw materials could put the brakes on the U.K’s economic recovery.

Solar panel installations are growing with the feed-in tariff scheme, but why?

Crude oil pushed above $120 a (46.6p) per barrel after concerns that continued fighting in Libya, unrest in Yemen, forthcoming elections in Nigeria, one of the world’s biggest producers and the prospect of a resurgent US economy would put pressure on supplies.
