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 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 »

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.
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 »

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 »

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

If you were one of the lucky homeowners, who had free PV solar panels (photovoltaic) installed last year, then you may wish to sit down for this. With the rush and rise in popularity of rent a roof and free solar panels schemes, nobody asked themselves how do the banks feel about this?
For those that installed solar panels themselves, the outlook is good. The saleability of your home should you choose to, over the next 20 years has increased tenfold, and mortgage lenders are happy to lend.
But if you have a third party PV solar panel system on your roof, mortgage lenders are already beginning to reject mortgage and re-mortgage applications. Read the rest of this entry »
