PV solar panels, today

An extraordinary road towards an electric-driven world enhanced by photovoltaic solar panels.

Are solar panels worth installing?

December 5th, 2013

Are solar panels worth installing, I’m asked regularly?

Why buy PV solar panels in the UK?

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 »

EMP threats and PV solar panels?

November 20th, 2013

I first fell in love with PV solar technology in 2004.

EMP threats and PV solar panels?

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 »

Why PV export tariffs?

October 19th, 2013

Yet another round of increasing energy prices.

How to clean solar panels.

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 »

Advantages of adopting PV solar panels

October 11th, 2013

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?

Fight back against continued fuel cost rises with PV solar panels.

Fight back against continued fuel cost rises 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 »

How to buy photovoltaic solar panels?

August 29th, 2013

I’ve been singing the praises of solar panels since 2004.

The PV solar panel apocalypse in the UK between 2012 and 2018.

I’ve seen many solar companies come and go in the earliest years.

I’ve seen them all from corporations like BP to smaller groups.

The one thing they have in common is over-zealous and commission-hungry salespeople.

Now, this is nothing unique to the solar panel industry, but having worked a couple of years in such an environment myself, I have heard and seen it all. Read the rest of this entry »

Solar panels in the United Kingdom

July 23rd, 2013

While enjoying a pint on a countryside walk, I was distracted by a conversation about solar panels.

Solar panels in the United Kingdom

A debate of the effectiveness of solar panels in the UK began.

Interested to hear a stranger’s point-of-view, I earwigged whilst admiring the beautiful Welsh countryside.

Resisting the urge to declare my own enthusiasm, I listened as they began to espouse the usual solar myths.
