PV solar panels for a crazy world


An extraordinary road towards an electric-driven world enhanced with PV.



What on earth are you feeding us?

November 28th, 2014

Someone once said to me “A good rule of thumb for healthy eating is – if you see something advertised on TV, then avoid it!” I would be more specific and say avoid Aspartame and High Fructose Corn Syrup.

But, more importantly, I would like to add to this by also saying – if the contents of your dinner once lived in the Pacific Ocean, then abstain immediately.

What they can't see won't hurt them!

I first wrote about the information lockdown by governments and mainstream media a while ago, but the real scale of the Fukushima disaster is far worse than first thought.

I have four tins of tuna with a pre-Fukushima date on them which I am saving for a particular moment. Like keeping a bottle of wine with a good year, but apart from that, I will not eat Pacific Tuna again.

All efforts by the Japanese authorities to contain and prevent contaminated water entering into the environment have failed. This disaster is humanities largest disaster that is being deliberately un-reported by mainstream media – probably due to the helplessness of the situation. Read the rest of this entry »


Applying for a solar export tariff

November 6th, 2014

The early bird catches the worm they say. The morning dew is a window of opportunity for the smartest birds to prepare themselves for the day ahead, but the morning sunshine will soon close this opportunity. This analogy is similar to buying solar panels today.

Proud to be a solar panel pioneer.

The smartest got the juiciest feed-in tariff rates, adopters today can still get a reasonable rate while the latecomers will find slim pickings or find that they are gone entirely.

The dawn of the solar panelled century is transcending, but there’s still time to benefit from the feed-in tariffs.

From its conception in 2009, the feed-in tariff scheme has spawned a solar panel revolution that we can all see on the rooftops around the country today. Many of those who opted to invest in solar panels are now sitting smugly (and rightly so) in their solar panelled homes. Read the rest of this entry »


How solar energy can help?

October 23rd, 2014

North Korea today stopped all incoming flights to protect themselves from Ebola. Our western governments have not yet banned incoming flights from affected parts of Africa, but when the inevitable occurs, our society will change forever.

One thing is sure about a situation like this; you certainly won’t get the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth from watching BBC1, ITV, Sky News or any controlled media sources because governments don’t want to panic the masses.

Preparedness has always been the aim of Heat my Home since its conception in 2004, but unfortunately, those who once questioned the future of solar panels and the need to prepare are no longer sceptical now.

Change is already occurring in our society with people replacing ‘fist-bumping’ with the traditional handshake. Imagine a world where your local supermarket workers refuse to go to work because of fear of public interaction! Read the rest of this entry »


Lord Lawson is getting in the way

October 7th, 2014

Long before I was a twinkle in my father’s roving eye, there was a generation commonly known as the baby-boomers that changed the social behaviour forever. Their parents refused to see the benefits of 1960s change, and many fought to prevent it.

This era is a good analogy for what is occurring today with our energy and environmental problems. As younger generations can see issues that lie ahead, unfortunately, there are still people in the population who fight tooth and nail to prevent change occurring.

The current poster boy for this muddiness is the ex-chancellor Lord Nigel Lawson and his ‘Global Warming Policy Foundation’. A deliberate effort to promote a sceptical political agenda under the guise of an educational charity. Read the rest of this entry »


The truth and nothing but the truth

September 25th, 2014

The few spoil it for the many, and the same is true for the solar industry. commission-hungry salespeople are putting many people off taking the plunge. It’s revealed on our user’s forum that some salespeople are deceiving their prospective customers about expectations of performance.

Interested?

There are hundreds and hundreds of companies from Lands End to John O’Groats that offer great products, great installation and high prices, so nobody should be put off by this.

The problem with bad salespeople or companies that employ them is they confuse people pondering installing solar panels in good faith. Many people unnecessarily abandon the idea because of conflicting and confusing information.

When a solar pioneer requests a quote, the expected performance of the panels alongside the homeowner’s geographical coordinates is worked out using the very sophisticated software. However, no matter how high the software, if the input data is falsely input, then the output data could be considered wrong at best or fraudulent at worst. Read the rest of this entry »


The collapse of the petrodollar

September 9th, 2014

If you were unlucky enough to be living in Russia during the end of the cold war, you would have seen big changes. Those with previous wealth begging for food, KGB agents and the police abandoning their posts to protect their families and mobster rule quickly replacing the old communist authority rule.

After world war two and during the 1950s and 60s, the US and Britain were a beacon of hope for the majority of the world. Although an iron curtain had fallen over Europe, most countries of the world held us in high regard for standing up to the Nazi and Japanese oppression.

Today the majority of the world view the US and Britain as the oppressors, the evil empires and this may come as a surprise, but the close ‘special’ relationship with the US that our country is so proud of could be our undoing.
