PV solar panels for a crazy world

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

Thermodynamic solar panels for the United Kingdom

July 2nd, 2013

I have always been excited by new technological innovations, but it has been a while since the solar panel industry has made any substantial innovative breakthroughs, until now.

My new love for thermodynamic solar panels

My new love for thermodynamic solar panels

First impressions of thermodynamic solar panels seemed too good to be true, but upon closer research, the hype around this newest of solar technology did warrant closer inspection. I liked the thermodynamic system so much that I have decided to promote it here within my Power My Home website happily.

This system is a complete solar heating panel technology which surpasses traditional flat-plate and evacuated tube installations by clever use of integrating heat pump technology.

Now don’t get me wrong, traditional evacuated tubes and flat-plate solar panels are both fantastic at what they do, even in the United Kingdom environment, but they do have a noticeable Achilles heel. The ability to work at night, as well as the day, is where thermodynamic technology now supersedes its sunshine loving cousins. Read the rest of this entry »

Savvy people installing PV solar panels

June 23rd, 2013

I remember walking down a street recently and thinking to myself ‘Didn’t the future arrive quickly?’ PV solar panels (photovoltaic) have been popping up everywhere and for the perfect reason.

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.

The Simpson’s vision of the future consisted of solar panel clad homes with holographic trees.

The trees are still real, but families across the country are increasingly realising the long-term benefits of solar panels, not only to alleviate themselves from increasingly more expensive energy costs but also to gain from the incentives that are still around for adopting alternative technologies.

Irony of tying pensions to oil

June 19th, 2013

There are plenty of ways in modern life to encounter irony at its best including people socialising on websites while sitting at home on their own. The richest people on the planet are also the biggest consumers of antidepressants, but the biggest irony of all time concerns everyone’s future and well-being.
I shall explain.

Paying for pensions by investing in companies that won't protect a habitable planet to retire on.

Paying for pensions by investing in companies that won’t protect a habitable planet to retire on.

One of the biggest legacies of the previous century, was, of course, the oil-based economy we all depend upon today and oil is so intertwined with our modern lives that it is also deeply entwined within our futures too.

I am talking about what may be one of the biggest ironies to befall modern man (and women). Many people don’t realise that their pension funds are reliant on us all burning more oil and gas, which in turn increases the likelihood of climate disaster in the near future.

Depending on how old you are when you read this article, the pension pot you spend most of your life contributing to is actually contributing to the likelihood of agricultural failure, flooding and water shortages within our own lifetimes. Read the rest of this entry »

Wrongdoing of biblical proportions

June 11th, 2013

I am not a religious person, but a big question has been working its way around my mind, so in a true ‘Power My Home’ style, I will share this with you.

Life on Earth beyond our own lifetimes.

Life on Earth beyond our own lifetimes.

In the old-testament, Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed by our a designer, overlord or loving god (choose appropriately) for being sick people at that time. Roll the clock forward a few thousand years, and we as a species are now destroying ‘his/her’ creation, and yet we still haven’t managed to be severe enough to warrant a Sodom and Gomorrah style intervention.

How much destruction of ‘his Eden’ has to occur before we make any ‘creator’ angry again? How many of ‘his’ other species and creations do we have to make extinct in this current massive extinction event to warrant another Sodom and Gomorrah style revenge attack? Read the rest of this entry »

Installing Chinese PV solar panels

May 29th, 2013

Currently, the European governments are deciding on new legislation which would influence the future of cheap PV solar panels (photovoltaic) from China.

The PV solar panel apocalypse in the UK between 2012 and 2018.This potentially, could put an end to the current influx of cheap and affordable (PV) photovoltaic solar panels which many households have benefited from over the last couple of years.

Many people across the United Kingdom would have noticed the solar panel bonanza which has seen this type of technology springing up in homes all around the country.

This era has occurred for two main reasons. Read the rest of this entry »

Technologies denied to the human race

May 24th, 2013

In 1971 a patent was seised by the American security agencies for national security on a new type of photovoltaic solar panel which had an efficiency rating of around 30-40%.

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.

Asking the question, how can an improved solar panel technology be a national security risk?

The answer is oil and the petrochemical industry, which holds the real power within our modern world and will go to any lengths to protect the trillions of dollars and the associated power that comes with this industry.

Seizure of over 5,000 patents relating to new energy developments reported, which begs the question what else is being suppressed to protect the fossil fuel industry. Read the rest of this entry »
