Solar energy has been around since our planet Earth was young.
The ability to harvest it using PV solar panels for our modern age has arrived.
The power of the sun created this rich and beautiful biodiversity that we see around us today.
Simple chemical reactions have transformed the atmosphere of our planet into the oxygen-rich air that we breathe today.
Just like photosynthesising plants on Earth, modern-day photovoltaic solar panels have developed into a higher-efficiency technology that can be installed worldwide. Read the rest of this entry »

PV solar panels (photovoltaic) are our future.
Learning from history; dependence on others is never a good thing.
The future of energy security will be on a personal level.
The start of Power My Home began on a train journey to Salzburg in 2004, where I noticed the large numbers of solar panels on homes, even back then. Read the rest of this entry »

We’ve been shouting from the rooftops for years at how brilliant solar panels are.
You don’t understand the benefits until you’ve seen them at work.
After asking some of our customers, we have had great responses:
“As scientists, we invested in solar heating panels years ago, proved it worked and saved us money. Now we have paid for the expensive PV solar system which will give us a better return for our money than the building society. After all the space station which uses the technology proves the system works long-term.”

Investing in PV solar panels (photovoltaic) can be daunting for many homeowners.
Looking back over the last two decades, we see energy prices doubling with more price hikes projected.
This alone explains why solar panel technology is a positive thing.
The financial benefits of installing a PV solar system in the United Kingdom consider it as a home improvement and future energy investment.
Only Ten percent of solar adopters are installing for environmental reasons.
Most people look at solar panels once the financial figures are shown. Read the rest of this entry »
