Pondering whether to buy a photovoltaic solar system? There are very few purchases in life that stay with you for three decades. If you bought any type of technological asset, then you’ll know what I mean!
An extraordinary journey towards a world enhanced by PV solar panels
The PV solar panel industry is going through a frenzy of demand. Demand increased because PV installations reduced as traditional expenditure has risen. PV systems cost upward of ten grand in 2010 and that’s without battery storage, tank heating, and EV-charging applications.
Today, photovoltaic installations can be done for a more reasonable £5-6 grand depending on plugins. Read the rest of this entry »
Are solar panels worth installing, I’m asked regularly? So why are solar panels worth installing? I reply, energy expenditure has risen year on year, so why wouldn’t you?
After ten years of enthusiastically shouting from the rooftops about solar panels, I see a very different world from most people. Traditional energy expenditure is a short-lived benefit compared to a one-off PV system purchase. Read the rest of this entry »
I first fell in love with PV solar technology in 2004. I’ve been answering questions from pioneering adopters and thought I’d heard them all. That was until I was asked, “If an electromagnetic pulse will affect my solar panels?”
I will attempt to answer this most unusual of questions. Upon further inquiry, I discovered this question came from current peak solar activity and more than unusual solar flare activity – ejected by the sun. Read the rest of this entry »
Yet another round of increasing energy prices. Either switch tariffs, wear a jumper, or invest in solar panels!
These are the options to shield yourself today. The future of energy in the UK is uncertain, but what’s certain is suppliers can’t guarantee prices. Those that can afford should contemplate alternative ways to shield – long-term. Read the rest of this entry »
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? Read the rest of this entry »
