PV solar panels for a crazy world




PV solar panels help the economy

May 18th, 2012

One of the unspoken reasons for the inability of governments to restart the engines of growth after the economic crisis is high energy costs. PV solar panels (photovoltaic) can help the future economy.

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.

Does it not seem odd that governments across the globe, and not just our own, are scaling back their commitments to a growing and robust alternative energy industry? Although the incentives for solar panels have reduced recently, the need for them, and, in fact, the benefits financially have never disappeared.

The recent feed-in tariff reduction, which was, unfortunately, poorly managed and ultimately caused panic and a torrent of media stories, was always planned. The scheme was still designed to decrease as installation costs decrease alongside.

The business of staying in business

A car driver continues down the road, foot down to the metal until he has he ran out of fuel.

Never once stopping to gauge the tank and never easing off the accelerator to conserve or use the remaining fuel more efficiently. Not clever eh?

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.

Well, this is precisely how our modern civilisation is burning the last of the world’s oil.

In fact, the consumption rate is increased tenfold as everyone travels into the second decade of the 21st-century, alongside another disappointing year for a new oil field finds. The smooth tuned engine of commerce will soon begin to splutter as demand eventually outpaces supply. Read the rest of this entry »


The dot com boom and solar panels

May 4th, 2012

What do solar panels and the internet have in common?

Greed caused the dot.com boom and bust of the turn of the millennium. People rushed to invest in a new exciting, technology with only one thing in mind, financial gain.

The PV solar panel apocalypse in the UK between 2012 and 2018.With a flood of people willing to invest, new and exciting internet companies now viewed as the next big thing, and at the time, many thought would be here to stay.

The fledgeling internet industry when Google was still in its infancy, saw an anticipated return on investment figures, which in hindsight were just too good to be true.

Anything coming across as familiar yet? Greed, it could be said, got in the way of a fantastic idea, but did it? Read the rest of this entry »


Energy companies hate PV solar panels

April 26th, 2012

The solar wind continually bombards the Earth, like waves hitting pebbles on a beach. PV solar panels (photovoltaic) capture that solar wind.

Solar energy or more specifically PV solar panels, which take advantage, of this significant energy source have had a rough time from David Cameron’s “Greenest Government Ever”.

So we ask why the coalition government is becoming more addicted to fossil fuels, rather than scaling up the use of technologies such as photovoltaic panels? Read the rest of this entry »


Humanity’s ultimate conclusion

April 16th, 2012

Have you thought of where this modern road is leading? What’s humanity’s ultimate conclusion?

When the lights go out.

When the lights go out.

We are all currently enjoying the bounty of thousands of years of accumulated wisdom, which have brought, peace to most of the world and technological revolutions climaxing in the ability to break away, study and admire the planet we inhabit, which generations before us, could never have even imagined.

The road, however, long, is not unending, and the ability of modern civilisation curtailed. There doesn’t seem to be a year goes by without the cost of energy rising higher or the price of a cultures lifeblood, petrol, increasing too. Read the rest of this entry »


Forecasting the future for solar panels

April 6th, 2012

Forecasting the future for solar panels -Living by the seaside gives you a different perspective on life. In medieval times, you were always conscious of what or who may come from over the horizon.

Where now for oil?

Where now for oil?

In modern times, people don’t tend to look any further than the 5-day weather forecast.

The future is never inevitable, but the outlook predicted, and predictions for energy prices by the big six energy companies themselves, will be just like the seaside tide. The small endless waves of seawater creep up gradually but forcefully. Just like tidal forces, the vast, uncontrollable, engine driving energy prices upward will continue unabated and without mercy.

So for this reason, the solar panel industry will continue to flourish driven by families who wish to be less reliant and reduce their everyday household living and energy costs. The reasons why energy costs continue to flow upward are varied but easy to understand. Read the rest of this entry »
