PV solar panels for a crazy world




A sunny future for solar panels

January 30th, 2013

However, humanity’s horizons are filled with storm clouds. Already within one month of this new year, four astonishing things have happened that will change our thinking about the role solar panels will play in our society and the new forward-thinking political policies.

A forward-thinking strategy.

A forward-thinking strategy.

A new time of enlightenment or too little too late? You decide.

1. Barack Obama in his inauguration speech to the American people finally acknowledged that the global warming issue is a real human problem that will affect not just our kid’s future. Our generation, and the here and now, as global droughts, erratic climate changes begin to affect our ability to feed ourselves.

Beat the system with PV solar panels

January 24th, 2013

A younger more revolutionary me would have loved the fact that there is a modern way to beat the system. Let me explain why PV solar panels (photovoltaic) will re-energise your revolutionary spirit.

Why choose PV solar panels to beat the system?

Why choose PV solar panels to beat the system?

Albeit a small victory, in a world increasingly weighted against the many, the phrase “can’t beat the system, go with the flow” could almost become a party political slogan for either political party.

Also, a self-interested and ‘too big for its own boots’ banking system no longer considers its customer’s cash to be essential and by locking society into an electronic monetary system either by design or an unexpected consequence, they now know you have no other option, but to use their essential services.

Energy security yet again in jeopardy

January 21st, 2013

There doesn’t seem to be a year go by when the wider world does not threaten Britain’s energy security.

Thousands of miles of vulnerability.

Thousands of miles of vulnerability.

This week alone, there arrived two problems which have exposed our countries’ vulnerability where energy is concerned, and as usual, when the weakness is exposed, household and commercial energy price rises follow quickly behind.

Freedom from high energy costs seems to be slipping from our countries grasp year on year, with the escalating problems of terrorism as seen in Algeria this week. Our dependence on sources from troubled geographical locations will only increase alongside our ability to keep energy costs down. Read the rest of this entry »


An historic week with no headlines

January 18th, 2013

Two historical moments occurred this week, but the most amazing aspect was the minimum media attention that you would aspect of such mammoth news events.

Catastrophe confirmation.

Catastrophe confirmation.

Firstly, the French President Francois Hollande made a speech at the green energy conference in Abu Dhabi finally admitting the world is on course for ‘environmental collapse’, saying “The world is headed for an environmental “catastrophe” if countries do not invest in renewable energy”.

This catastrophe is historic because no high-profile G8 world leaders except Barack Obama have ever admitted the true scale of the environmental problems we see today. Mr Hollande also added “If we don’t act, if we don’t do anything, if we don’t invest anything, we can be sure that we will have a catastrophe very soon”. Read the rest of this entry »


Unethical solar panel sales-tactics

January 15th, 2013

The success of PV solar panels (photovoltaic) over the last couple of years has been brought about by a combination of rewarding incentives called the feed-in tariffs and the escalating costs of heating and powering our homes.

Ninety-eight per cent of solar companies are good and adhere to strict industry standards. However, there are a few companies who give our industry a bad name.

The recent popularity of solar panels has unfortunately caught the attention of some people who are eager to ‘cash-in’ on this fledgeling but fast-growing industry. Read the rest of this entry »


Extreme wealth hoarding is antisocial

January 10th, 2013

Last summer’s youth riots, Arab spring and austerity protests showed how quickly society can break down and thus, we are now seeing wave after waving of draconian measures introduced to keep the working class, victims of the banking crisis and the youth in check.

Putting extreme wealth to good use.

Putting extreme wealth to good use.

I would argue that it’s the extreme wealth hoarders of the world who could help modern civilisation with its social and global warming problems.

In 2012, the world’s 100 wealthiest people became $241 billion richer. They are now worth $1.9 trillion: just a little less than the entire output of the United Kingdom.

Extreme wealth is very different from entrepreneurial wealth – Let me explain. Read the rest of this entry »
