PV solar panels for a crazy world


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


The golden age of civilisation

Ask a thousand people of varying ages, and you will get a thousand different answers, but what everyone will all agree on is that the golden age was in the past.

Sunrise or sunset for the industry?

Sunrise or sunset for the industry?

Watching a program from the mid-1990’s (the Adam & Joe Show), one of their comedy sketches consisted of trying to claim the free extra offers you got with food products – the 25% additional free offers which were commonplace in those days.

The significance of giving away food or products in those times, that our older people remember, but didn’t appreciate at the time, suddenly struck me. Read the rest of this entry »



Don’t dilly dally with solar panels

November 18th, 2011

“Some of you may have heard from the national media recently how the PV solar panels incentive scheme, also known as the feed-in tariffs, are to be reduced to new applicants on December 12th this year after a swift decision doing this by the coalition government.”

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.

So as the title of this article says “don’t dilly-dally if you want to receive the maximum rate of tariff!”

What’s reported, however, are the reasons why the feed-in tariff rate now reduced earlier than planned. The original purpose of the scheme was to help the solar industry grow organically over the years and to reward pioneering homeowners for installing such technology.

The problem came when too many solar companies took advantage of this scheme by giving some eligible homeowners their installations for free, with the solar company reaping in the tariff rewards.

This loophole in the legislation should close as soon as it became apparent what was happening, but unfortunately, this didn’t occur, and the feeding frenzy by free solar panel companies began.

PV solar panel installations hit record numbers

“The world has gone crazy for PV solar panels (photovoltaic). Across the globe from Germany to the USA and the Far East, the rush to install PV solar panels has well and truly started.”

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.

Even here in the United Kingdom, PV solar panels installations have rocketed to unprecedented levels over the last couple of years. You may have seen some PV solar panels pop-up in your area recently.

The rush for photovoltaic technology, alongside the global increase in energy costs, is no coincidence.

Whether we like it or not, there is too much demand on the remaining oil and gas supplies and the world’s governments are now all too aware of that. Read the rest of this entry »



Fit and forget with PV solar panels

November 10th, 2011

With the PV (photovoltaic) solar panel industry now fretting over the latest government changes to the feed-in tariffs, we explain why solar panels will continue to be a part of everyday life, even here in Britain.

The PV solar panel apocalypse in the UK between 2012 and 2018.We have all seen solar panel installations appearing on homes over the last couple of years. The decision to buy by the owners of about 50% of those solar installations had been helped by the first feed-in tariff scheme introduced in 2010.

Contrary to popular belief, the decision to buy has not been spoiled by ‘generous’ companies giving away ‘free’ solar panels but has been helped by fear of escalating energy prices in the future. Read the rest of this entry »

“Fixing the global warming problem is as easy as 1-2-3!”

Much pain, but still time. Believe there is good out there. We oppose deception. Conduit closing.

Much pain, but still time. Believe there is good out there. We oppose deception. Conduit closing.

With dieting, the solution to the problem is as comfortable as “less food, more exercise”, but dieting books and diet plans would like you to believe that it is more complicated than that!

With the global warming problem; less industry, more nature!

Let us avoid another 30 years of pretending to fix the problem with bad ideas. Global leaders have to come together and pledge to adopt this simple solution. Jobs shed from industry can be transferred over to mammoth ecological projects. Read the rest of this entry »



Own your PV solar panels

November 1st, 2011

If you have had PV solar panels (photovoltaic) installed in your home over the last 12 months, then the answer to this question is probably no!

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.

If you do buy your PV solar system, then well done, you will be rewarded generously for your purchase over the coming years. However, if you are one of the thousands of people who have another company’s equipment, i.e. free panels, on your roof, then sadly you will not receive benefits as generous.

The industrial-scale feeding frenzy, which has given rise to some companies who offer free solar panels, has brought the feed-in tariffs scheme to a conclusion earlier than planned. Read the rest of this entry »



Independence for home energy

“The coalition government’s latest ‘comprehensive energy review’ which held this week, came up with the one undoubtedly obvious conclusion.”

New home energy generation with PV solar panels.

New home energy generation with PV solar panels.

That there was nothing that the last government could do, nor that this state or even the next government can do to stop our energy bills from rising.
Mr Cameron’s assessment of energy prices only confirmed that our great nation is powerless against global issues, including the overwhelming global demand for energy as the industrialised economies of China and India continue to grow.

This predicament is overshadowed alarmingly by the continued reduction of new oil field finds and the overstretching of existing areas. New investment into looking for new oil fields has been announced this week, with BP casting their the North Sea nets out further afield. Read the rest of this entry »



An age of political change is unfolding

“Five years ago it would have been ridiculous to think of America has a black President.”

Power My Home PV Solar Panels UKThree years ago, to Germany, the world’s most active advocator of carbon-free power, giving up nuclear power would have seemed unthinkable.

Two years ago, the Arab uprising was not happening. Dictators ruled the Middle East without fear.
One year ago the Liberal Democrats came to power. Read the rest of this entry »



Politicians preventing the energy crunch

“Did you know that the bankers’ bailout in 2008/9 was the direct cause of the Arab Spring protests in the Middle East? The bail-out money that the banks received during this period was sunk into the commodities markets, mainly food commodities.”

Power My Home PV Solar Panels UKThe result was higher global food prices, and Middle Eastern countries bore the brunt of these actions. The saying “every action reacts” is appropriate here, with ordinary people taking to the streets, blaming their governments for not being able to afford their basic needs.

While the Middle Eastern governments were powerless to prevent food prices and food shortages from affecting their people, so too is our government equally impotent to avert global issues from affecting citizens of the UK. Read the rest of this entry »



PV solar panels are just common sense

Why PV solar panels (photovoltaic) are just common sense? There are some things in life which are just common sense.

The application of sunscreen, for example, so you don’t burn in the sun, wrapping up warm on cold winter mornings and wearing waterproof shoes when it’s raining. These are all common sense precautions.

PV solar panels are just common sense in today's world.

PV solar panels are just common sense in today’s world.

The latest common sense approach to modern life is to install PV solar panels to protect your family from undependable and increasingly expensive fossil fuels.

The world has changed dramatically over the last few years, and the era of cheap, plentiful energy is now a distant memory for us all. Read the rest of this entry »
