A growing number of people are adopting PV solar panels in the UK and creating a more favourable long-term future for their household expenditure.

Many times cheaper than they used to be.

How much do solar panels cost?

However, what’s the cost of not installing solar panels projecting forward?

Life’s made easy by asking the right questions and not necessarily the obvious ones.

There is currently a quiet renewables revolution going on with PV, EV’s (electric vehicles) and wind power at the cutting edge within the UK today.

Commonly, for domestic use, the average cost of a larger-sized PV solar panel system has reduced by ten thousand pounds over the last decade.

Hence, the alignment of government incentives over the same period. (more…)

Apparently, I’m the 2018 Sustainable Building Award winner by BUILD magazine.

Beware BUILD Magazine Awards and the vanity scam .

Beware BUILD Magazine Awards and the vanity scam .

As the proud winner of the Best Online Energy Awareness Advisory 2018 category, I get the privilege of purchasing my trophy for £295 and a celebratory write-up for £3,495 – wow!

Further investigation of Build Magazine unravelled a ‘vanity scam’ award or “everyone’s a winner” scheme.

“To see the light; is to go solar” – as I once put it, but in this case its to see the wood from the trees. (more…)

Solar panels are just a matter of time

The greatest gift bestowed to someone is your time.

London was destined to be the first hydrogen bomb testing ground.

London was destined to be the first hydrogen bomb testing ground.

Time is fluid, often gifted and taken away at Her Majesty’s pleasure.

It’s not celebrities, politicians or rock stars that influence the future; it’s humble men like my late grandfather, Donald Lovatt (aged 96) who willingly joined the para’s age 17 to join the fight against totalitarianism in WW2.

Millions of ordinary people came together to change a very bleak looking timeline at that time. (more…)

Generations of electricity and poor health

I can pinpoint the exact moment in time when health issues associated with modern living began and its wholly associated with electricity generation.

Question everything.

Question everything.

In 1882 Thomas Edison helped construct the first power station in New York, and the modern era began.

Human beings went from burning wood to electricity for illumination and heating.

Within a few short decades, a long held tradition of using ‘wood ash’ to fertalise crops was extinguished and the 90 essential nutrients that growing food with ‘nutrient rich’ wood ash was lost forever. (more…)

Solar buyback schemes want your feed-in tariff contract!

Since its inception, the feed-in tariff scheme has seen over 750,000 homes install PV solar panels, but in another extraordinary twist to the story; contracts are now being purchased like Pokemon trading cards.

UPDATE: The MCS accreditation body wants solar-owners report companies that trade in such contracts.

Are solar buyback schemes a good thing?

Are solar buyback schemes a good thing?

Beneficial or not?

One proud solar-owner told me he’d been contacted by such a company who wanted to buy his feed-in tariff contract for a measly couple of grand under what they called a ‘Solar buyback’ scheme!

This ‘lucky’ PV owner was offered the option of cashing in on his FIT with a tax-free lump sum.

I mused that “like the infamous ‘payday loans’ and ‘unlock your home’s equity’ schemes, you would have to be either desperate or ignorant to accept such an offer. (more…)

Fighting in solar panels and green energy’s corner

Twelve years of shouting from the rooftops about solar panels have seen tears of joy, sadness and quite frankly, I have put my life on the line in this good fight.

Fighting for a solar-powered world.

Fighting for a solar-powered world.

Why?

Because a solar-powered civilisation is not only achievable; it’s necessary!

Today, we have secretive, global-wide geoengineering occuring because of forty years of deception to simply keep you blindly shopping.

And like national debt today, the ecological problems get kicked further down the road for later generations to deal with – we are that generation! (more…)

Feeling depressed? It could be worse, you could be taking antidepressants!

It’s no longer the 1970s, the 1980s flew by and the 1990s was just a blur, but recently the pharmaceutical industry, has released a whole array of new medicines for life’s up’s, but more specifically it downs?

It's easier to build strong children than repair broken adults.

It’s easier to build strong children than repair broken adults.

Why are corporations encouraging fear in the population for standard adult social fears?

Now the kids are put to bed, we grownups need to understand that depression is a standard life infliction, inflicting everyone at least some stage of life. Nobody escapes, not the rich or the poor.

Depression is actually anger turned inwards.

Reuniting Britain under a clean energy goal

Nobody can tell you who’ll be Prime Minister in thirty years time, but what is certain; is that solar panels, will still be contributing to your family’s future – Ma’am.

A time for leadership from our royal leader.

A time for leadership from our royal leader.

With this kind of longevity, they can help your family ride out any political upheavals.

People are arguing that there is not much sun in the UK – think twice. For the first time, the UK’s solar panels generated more electricity than was produced from coal.

With advancements in photovoltaics today, the realistic prospect of such technologies producing 95% of their generating capacity after 20 years is now proven. (more…)

The US has declared war on regulations that protect the British people

We British are being divided and conquered!

The EU referendum is not what it seems!

US corporations have gone to war on the EU that has protected us from ‘profit before people’ ethics and especially the US pharmaceutical, health care, energy and food industries.

Pepsi Cola has finally bowed down to consumer pressure and is removing Aspartame from its ingredients. A small victory for common sense, a victory for people’s health. (more…)

A cultural revolution your grandparents would be proud of

The reason politicians pander their policies to appease the baby boomer generation is that rebelled and changed the political landscape when they were young.

Corporate coffee suddenly tastes foul.

Corporate coffee suddenly tastes foul.

Nowadays, those same baby boomers are marching on-mass to vote, and the young need to do the same to ‘create a new cultural revolution’ that will begin to put the many modern day wrongs – right again.

Promoting solar panels and powering electric vehicles using PV technology, is my personal response to a system that only views us as people to be milked. (more…)
