The rising costs of energy are written in stone, so why are people still not looking for ways to beat the inevitable with PV solar panels?
Future predictions can come from prophets like Nostradamus or our modern age weathermen with their solar-powered satellites.
You certainly don’t need billion dollar space technology or bearded renaissance wise men to see the future of energy now.
This reason is why it perplexes me that more people aren’t installing PV solar panels (photovoltaic) en-mass today?
In a discussion today with a customer, I had the chance to ask why he hadn’t installed this excellent energy saving and revenue generating technology before?
The basis of his reluctance came entirely from confusing or conflicting information, which he had read from various media.
The causes of this misinformation are political wrangling for hearts and minds by specific agenda motivated newspaper owners. If people investigated the long-term benefits and actual figures for installing solar panels, then they certainly wouldn’t dilly dally as my customer had been doing so far, for so long.
Getting deeper into the conversation, my new more open-minded friend and I had surmised that the all-powerful energy companies, really didn’t want everyone generating their power, decentralising power generation would undermine the ability of our new privatised energy industry to make profits from every one of us.
His answer wasn’t surprising to me, but it did sadden me.
Don’t be a cash cow
Alternative energy should be the new name for the renewable technology, as just like the media has re-branded global warming to seem less dangerous, so too has it worked its manipulative spell on the phrase ‘green energy’ to imply powerlessness.
When the utilities were privatised, the newly formed energy companies would not have even considered each household up and down the country being able to generate a significant proportion of their power requirements.
The same would be true with smaller the newer and more independent power generators who are erecting wind turbines across the country. Again, taking a slice of the pie away from the shareholders of the big six energy companies can only lead such industries to protect their cash cow.
It shouldn’t come as any surprise then that they don’t want you to be generating your power. It should come as no surprise that the shareholders in the media will want to protect their annual dividends coming from your pockets.
If their cash cows (us) decide to escape from their controlling field and the herd en-mass break free from traditional energy bondage we have found ourselves in, would there not be benefits for us and none for them.
Ping! That was the sound of the light switching on in my customer’s mind. Now he gets it, and now so do you. A herd, like any farmer, will confirm, could escape into pastures new at any time, but the crowd doesn’t know that it has the strength and ability to break free. The illusion of a barrier is enough to keep the herd from moving to a greener field. Individuals have already broken through and are now enjoying the benefits of solar panels and other renewable technologies.
The energy companies are powerless to prevent your energy bills from rising yet higher and high, so why rely on them to heat your home anymore?
What we finally concluded was that they don’t want you to know is that PV solar panels will empower you and devalue NPower and Southern Electric’s, shareholders?
