Singing in the rain with solar panels

Wednesday, August 1st, 2012

A sense of future forecasting is involved when choosing to install PV solar panels, like choosing to carry your umbrella on a sunny morning in the full knowledge that it will be raining in the afternoon.

The PV solar panel apocalypse in the UK between 2012 and 2018.That smug feeling of walking home dry under your brolly while others around you get a decent soaking.

You do not need to be physic to predict the future, but looking forward should be a crucial factor when thinking about solar panel technologies.

I have bestowed the advantages of solar panels since 2004 when the signs that the North Sea oil and Gas are drying out were first beginning to leak out. (more…)

Common sense and PV solar panels

Friday, July 13th, 2012

We are a world in need of PV solar panels (photovoltaic) and other alternative technologies.

I am not a fan of football myself, but some people including myself think goal-line technology in the game is just common sense, although some people prevent this from happening.

PV solar panels for a crazy world.

PV solar panels for a crazy world.

A banking system, which does not gamble other people’s savings off, is another example of common sense thrown out with the dishwater, even after the economic crash, people still prevent this happening.

The most significant and most fundamental bewilderment is economic growth. With our newly acquired eyes in the sky, we can for the first time in history look down at ourselves in virtual god-like detail. We can see our impact; we can see we have nowhere else to go. (more…)

Boom and bust for solar panels

Thursday, May 31st, 2012

A fresh view of the PV solar panel (photovoltaic) industry. Bank holiday chaos will once again mark the advent of the British summertime.

Power My Home PV Solar Panels UKThe sun is shining, and our overcrowded island and roads, will once again; fill up with expectant and fun savvy families.

The same can also say for the next round of energy-savvy families wishing to install PV panels to their home.

The current feed-in tariff rate will continue right through the summer months, and people will flock in their thousands, to be one of the lucky ones who receive the higher percentage of the tariff at 15.44 pence per kWh. (more…)

PV solar panels help the economy

Friday, May 18th, 2012

One of the unspoken reasons for the inability of governments to restart the engines of growth after the economic crisis is high energy costs. PV solar panels (photovoltaic) can help the future economy.

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.

Does it not seem odd that governments across the globe, and not just our own, are scaling back their commitments to a growing and robust alternative energy industry? Although the incentives for solar panels have reduced recently, the need for them, and, in fact, the benefits financially have never disappeared.

The recent feed-in tariff reduction, which was, unfortunately, poorly managed and ultimately caused panic and a torrent of media stories, was always planned. The scheme was still designed to decrease as installation costs decrease alongside.

Energy companies hate PV solar panels

Thursday, April 26th, 2012

The solar wind continually bombards the Earth, like waves hitting pebbles on a beach. PV solar panels (photovoltaic) capture that solar wind.

Solar energy or more specifically PV solar panels, which take advantage, of this significant energy source have had a rough time from David Cameron’s “Greenest Government Ever”.

So we ask why the coalition government is becoming more addicted to fossil fuels, rather than scaling up the use of technologies such as photovoltaic panels? (more…)

Mortgage lenders hate free solar panels

Friday, March 30th, 2012

If you were one of the lucky homeowners, who had free PV solar panels (photovoltaic) installed last year, then you may wish to sit down for this. With the rush and rise in popularity of rent a roof and free solar panels schemes, nobody asked themselves how do the banks feel about this?

The PV solar panel apocalypse in the UK between 2012 and 2018.For those that installed solar panels themselves, the outlook is good. The saleability of your home should you choose to, over the next 20 years has increased tenfold, and mortgage lenders are happy to lend.

But if you have a third party PV solar panel system on your roof, mortgage lenders are already beginning to reject mortgage and re-mortgage applications. (more…)
