When you truly look at our planet, even our universe in simplistic terms, what has occurred to create life is just a series of chemical reactions, contained in a restricted bowl.
Introducing the goldfish bowl effect.
The stars (sun’s) we see in the night sky are just hydrogen and helium balls reacting, our planet we call Earth is a ball of molten iron which hadn’t cooled down yet from when it coalesced.
Our Oxygen-rich atmosphere which we take for granted is merely a by-product of early life and photosynthesis again other chemical processes.
The atmosphere; an ultra-thin gas shroud when compared to the whole planet, can be compared to an eggshell. Our excellent and breathable air is as just as thin. Apologies if I am teaching granny to suck eggs here. Read the rest of this entry »

In a court judgement yesterday, the feed-in tariff rate for solar panels was reinstated to 15.44 pence per kWh after the government was found to have cut the tariff unlawfully.
There’s nothing more powerful than when PV solar technologies time has come.
That’s the good news; however, the higher rate will only be applicable to PV solar panels installations (photovoltaic) completed before the 3rd March.
Again this will create the same scenario which occurred in December when homeowners scrambled to complete their installation before the deadline date.
Understandably, there are installation dates available, but they are limited, so be quick if you wish to meet this second deadline for the 15.44 pence higher rate. Read the rest of this entry »

The end of the Mayan 5,125-year cycle is now upon us, and a new epoch in human and planetary time will soon arrive -or so goes the theory!
Whether you think that the theory will be proved wrong, as the millennium bug was in 2000, or believe that humanity will go the same way as the Dodo, the timing of the Mayan cycle alongside recent human and planetary events will make even the most die-hard cynic think twice.
Three significant factors which may alter or devastate our modern civilisation leaving out events such as asteroids, solar flares or pandemics, are already in play, and we must ignore this at our peril.
Written below is my prediction for the beginning of our end.

I would like to begin this article with a simple plea.
The terms alternative energy, micro-generation and green energy doesn’t inspire one or cut the mustard. A better way to describe solar panels, wind turbines and other similar technologies would be self-generation technologies.
These phrases used within our industries, are doing us a disservice because they demean, belittle and merely paint an incorrect picture of the benefits which these types of systems provide. Read the rest of this entry »

Did you know that there are more PV solar panels (photovoltaic) installed in the north of the United Kingdom than the south, proving once and for all that solar panels does work well in the British climate?
This data covers the period 2010/ 20011 as the feed-in tariffs, which rewards pioneer adopters of both solar electric and solar heating type installations, give a guaranteed income as well as free electricity.
The adoption rate of solar panels has increased dramatically since the feed-in tariffs introduced in April 2010. 260MW of power generated, with 48,460 separate installations across the UK. Read the rest of this entry »

With the overwhelming success of the feed-in tariffs for PV solar panels (photovoltaic) in 2010 and 2011, I am sure you have noticed them on the roofs of homes in your area, and in the future, will continue to do so at an ever-increasing rate.
The reason for this is simple.
Stuart Lovatt, the founder of Power My Home, explains. “Since the feed-in tariffs began in 2010 we have always shouted from the rooftops ‘(excuse the pun) that installing PV solar panels sooner rather than later is a must. The incentive schemes have always been designed to reward early adopters the most and later adopters the least.” Read the rest of this entry »
