PV solar panels for a crazy world




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 »


A future playing out to its ultimate conclusion

May 17th, 2013

The internet is a powerful tool. It transcends both time and space. I can speak to my future son, and I regularly update him and post photographs of our best memories as he grows up.

This unique-ability in human history throws up many questions, but the biggest question is how do I explain to my future son that nobody today is taking the climate issues and our planet's destruction seriously.

A message for the future.

One day he will have a memory bank of all the good times we enjoy together. I speak to him today, not as the toddler that he is today, but as the man, he will one day become.

This unique-ability in human history throws up many questions, but the biggest problem is how do I explain to my future son that nobody today is taking the climate issues and our planet’s destruction seriously.

One day our children or grandchildren will ask what did you do? How do you explain that only a small percentage of the population today accept the reality of the situation and an even lower number of people actively attempt to change the position. Read the rest of this entry »


Dependence on energy costs

April 30th, 2013

As another energy bill falls onto your doormat and yet again you sigh with disappointment as you contemplate yet another rise in the cost of heating and powering your home, you undoubtedly think that this is not the future we were promised.

Your future energy bills are still unwritten.

Your future energy bills are still unwritten.

Many people attempt to cushion themselves by choosing to switch energy providers and thus give themselves a short-term reprieve through a ‘fixed term’ deal that will give them a guaranteed price over a year, possibly two at best.

When Marty McFly arrived in the year October 21, 2015, energy shortcomings were not part of the future vision, but back here in the real future, our timeline will see millions crippled by fuel poverty and energy costs. Read the rest of this entry »


Cleaning your PV solar panels

April 25th, 2013

One very important factor often overlooked by PV solar panel (photovoltaic) owners are cleaning.

Just like your car, the dirt and dust in the atmosphere can leave your pride and joy with an unsightly layer of grime attached. This dirt and dust can hurt your panels’ performance if left unchecked.

The importance of cleaning your PV solar panels.

The importance of cleaning your PV solar panels.

With your feed-in tariff revenue for photovoltaic panels being reliant on producing the maximum amount of energy to gain the maximum amount of income, then the importance of keeping your solar panels clean seems obvious.

Solar panels do work well, even when dirty. NASA’s Rovers have demonstrated this on Mars. With an expected lifespan of six months when first launched in 2004, the success of the rover’s longevity on the Martian landscape has been down to their extraordinary solar panels, which have kept the rover powered, despite their accumulated layers of red dust.

PV solar panels in the United Kingdom

March 29th, 2013

Here at Power My Home, we have always encouraged people to get an installation while the going is good.

Waking a sleeping dragon is never a good thing.

Waking a sleeping dragon is never a good thing.

Many have adhered to this advice and now enjoy the financial benefits, now and for the next three decades to come. Having PV solar panels (photovoltaic) installed on your roof is a no-brainer in today’s world of energy uncertainty and insecurity.

The importance of solar panel technology is not yet realised by most people in the west again, just because most people are still in the mindset of cheap and abundant resources.

The old world of affordable energy is over, but the Chinese government has noted solar technology’s importance in the 21st-century. Read the rest of this entry »


Gas rationing is a call to action

March 25th, 2013

This week has seen a definite warning shot across the bow of HMS Great Britain.

A warning of impending gas problems.

A warning of impending gas problems.

With the unseasonable snow leaving our already vulnerable nation with little gas supplies, we should all use this proximity of potential rationing of gas supplies as a ‘call to action’ to reduce our dependence on this most vital of modern necessities.

The additional news this week of a tanker from Qatar relieving Britain’s gas supply drought will see most people breathing a sigh of relief. However, the energy-savvy among us will see this as an opportunity to protect our homes from future problems. Read the rest of this entry »
