How much power do solar panels generate?

Saudi Arabia has declared war on every man, women and child by deliberately raising global oil prices – again.

A brave new world with PV and EV-tech.

A brave new world with PV and EV-tech.

So, how much power do solar panels generate; is the wrong question.

What power does solar technology wield; is a much more appropriate one.

I say the power to belittle unworthy oil-rich Kingdoms.

What you believe to be true. Is it true? Or do you think that it is true because we’re taught that it’s true and never looked any further?

Sadly, solar power has suffered from deliberate attempts to undermine it.

The truth about PV and EV technologies is that it’ll give you a dangerously impressive level of personal freedom and a leaner, greener existence.

Today, the most popular domestic-sized systems range from a modest 2 to a larger 5 kW sizes. A full range of sizes to match the variety of lifestyles in the UK.

Individual panel yield varies depending on the supplier or manufacturer, but typically 180 to 300 Watts per panel is typical in the UK producing up to 4,500 kW annually with a larger 4 kW sized system.

Output varies depending on geographical location.

Annual UK solar radiation figures are:

Scotland: 900-1000 kWh per sqm.
Midlands: 1000-1200 kWh per sqm.
South coast: 1100-1300 kWh per sqm.

That’s the myth busted that PV solar panels don’t work well in the United Kingdom.

Now the dull technical stuff is out of the way; the real question should be:

“What’s the true power of PV with EV technology?”

Solar heating panels were popular in the early 2000s. Today, PV is king because of its versatility, reduced installation costs and thus replaced solar heating technology with the advent of PV-hot-water converters and battery storage.

For homes with water tanks, hot-water converters contribute to three decades of your hot water supply while battery storage gives you sun-powered electricity at night – revolutionary stuff.

I’m just getting warmed up here.

All truth passes through three stages. First, ridiculed. Secondly its violently opposed, then its accepted as self-evident.

We’re currently at stage two.

Most people’s view of solar panels comes from a place of ignorance, primarily as their belittled by powerful interests with high-profile media outlets.

Traditional lobbyists are terrified of the power of PV, and they’re golden egg-layers breaking away from battery farm economics that’s today’s UK energy industry.

Despite corrupt political policies that protect fossil fuels, nearly a million homeowners have adopted solar panels over the last decade within the United Kingdom.

Those pioneers realised that solar energy radiation bombards our roofs daily, to a lesser or higher degree depending on local climates and seasonal fluctuations – but daily.

So, what is PV solar technologies annual output?

PV’s output depends on the size of the system. A commonly installed 3-4 kW system size is more beneficial for households with multiple occupants.

PV’s annual output is broken down here:

January – 2%
February – 4%
March – 5%
April – 8%
May – 9%
June – 14%
July – 18%
August – 16%
September – 11%
October – 8%
November – 4%
December – 2%

x 30 years lifespan.

Unsurprisingly, energy prices are expected to soar yet again as the UK leaves the EU on March 29, 2019. Personal independence from further energy costs will be necessary for most looking long-term.

However, the real power in the world derives from dealing with facts, not propaganda.

Unfortunately, Humans have lost their galactic view, the power of stars and the power of starlight.

Speaking truth is a revolutionary act nowadays; installing solar panels is too.

A new age of going your own way

Britain wants to go its way from the EU, Menfolk are going they’re own way, Trump is going his own way geopolitically, and the planet is going its own way climatically.

All equally detrimental to civilisation in the 21st century.

Additionally, abuse of power has permeated the energy industry too. Today, you have the technology to go your way with energy and here’s why you should.

Again, pampered Saudi royals are threatening the world with higher oil prices. It’s odd how the most pointless, culture-free country has so much free power in the world.

In today’s PV and EV enriched world, I would say Saudi oil is fast going to become a ‘supplemental’ power in the world and not a ‘primary’ one as is today.

Britain has always defeated threats through technological advancements as the last century demonstrated.

Ancient Egypt’s demise probably followed a similar path of becoming obsolete after controlling the water resource that’s the Nile Delta for centuries.

Raising oil prices will only speed-up PV-adoption rates and thus speed-up Saudi’s irrelevance geopolitically – cheque mate.

Maybe then, our powerless politicians will stop kissing pampered Saudi butt.

Irrelevance is what these people fear the most.

Eighteen years into the 21st-century, it’s now time to build the future we looked forward to as kids; one PV-clad rooftop and EV-adorned driveway at a time.

Being able to walk away from those who disrespect you is real power.

Time to walk away from your energy supplier who only views you as cattle class. Their energy costs are on an Al Gorean hockey stick rise upwards.

Then there’s the power of rivalry.

Germany beat us to the start line with they’re PV and EV manufacturing and adoption since 1999.

Despite this, our quaint British class system will soon have every middle-class family competing for social dominance using PV and EVs as status symbols. Being the first on the street has become a British obsession and actually powered the 20th century.

The 21st century is just getting started.

How much power do PV solar panels generate?

The power to say “enough is enough” to this bollox.
