PV solar panels for a crazy world

a PV and EV-driven world."

Things I’ve learned on my journey

Dear Son.

Being human today is difficult.

To be human means making mistakes. We’ve all made mistakes, and some don’t even know that they’ve made them yet, but being a grown-up means assessing and adjusting to new information.

13,000-year old Gobekli Tepe - The human story is far more fantastic than the history books have you believe.

13,000-year-old Gobekli Tepe – The human story is far more fantastic than the history books have you believe.

For better or worse, I had to acquire knowledge that some may deem as ‘basic stuff’ for myself.

Here for you, are some that I hope will help you avoid some of the knocks and scrapes of life and hopefully empower yourself to avoid the pitfalls that come with living in this modern world.

Knowledge is power. Read the rest of this entry »

Generations of electricity and poor health

September 28th, 2016

I can pinpoint the exact moment in time when health issues associated with modern living began and its wholly associated with electricity generation.

Question everything.

Question everything.

In 1882 Thomas Edison helped construct the first power station in New York, and the modern era began.

Human beings went from burning wood to electricity for illumination and heating.

Within a few short decades, a long-held tradition of using ‘wood ash’ to fertilise crops was extinguished and the 90 essential nutrients that growing food with ‘nutrient rich’ wood ash was lost forever. Read the rest of this entry »

Solar buyback schemes want your feed-in tariff contract!

September 6th, 2016

Since its inception, the feed-in tariff scheme has seen over 750,000 homes install PV solar panels, but in another extraordinary twist to the story; contracts are now being purchased like Pokemon trading cards.

UPDATE: The MCS accreditation body wants solar-owners report companies that trade in such contracts.

Are solar buyback schemes a good thing?

Are solar buyback schemes a good thing?

Beneficial or not?

One proud solar-owner told me he’d been contacted by such a company who wanted to buy his feed-in tariff contract for a measly couple of grand under what they called a ‘Solar buyback’ scheme!

This ‘lucky’ PV owner was offered the option of cashing in on his FIT with a tax-free lump sum.

I mused that “like the infamous ‘payday loans’ and ‘unlock your home’s equity’ schemes, you would have to be either desperate or ignorant to accept such an offer. Read the rest of this entry »

Fighting in solar panels and green energy’s corner

August 24th, 2016

Twelve years of shouting from the rooftops about solar panels have seen tears of joy, sadness and quite frankly, I have put my life on the line in this good fight.

Fighting for a solar-powered world.

Fighting for a solar-powered world.

Why?

Because a solar-powered civilisation is not only achievable; it’s necessary!

Today, we have secretive, global-wide geoengineering occuring because of forty years of deception to simply keep you blindly shopping.

And like national debt today, the ecological problems get kicked further down the road for later generations to deal with – we are that generation! Read the rest of this entry »

Feeling depressed? It could be worse, you could be taking antidepressants!

It’s no longer the 1970s, the 1980s flew by and the 1990s was just a blur, but recently the pharmaceutical industry, has released a whole array of new medicines for life’s up’s, but more specifically it downs?

It's easier to build strong children than repair broken adults.

It’s easier to build strong children than repair broken adults.

Why are corporations encouraging fear in the population for standard adult social fears?

Now the kids are put to bed, we grownups need to understand that depression is a standard life infliction, inflicting everyone at least some stage of life. Nobody escapes, not the rich or the poor.

Depression is actually anger turned inwards.

Real independence in a post Brexit world

For those that don’t remember a time before the internet, then you will never understand the hold that ‘the newspapers’ had over normal people. How they think, how they buy and how they vote.

Are you sure your views are your own?

Are you sure your views are your own?

Want to know the real reason Britain is now out of the EU?

The bare naked ugly truth is in Rupert Murdoch’s own words:

“When I go to Downing Street, they do what I say; when I go to Brussels they take no notice!

Reuniting Britain under a clean energy goal

Nobody can tell you who’ll be Prime Minister in thirty years time, but what is certain; is that solar panels, will still be contributing to your family’s future – Ma’am.

A time for leadership from our royal leader.

A time for leadership from our royal leader.

With this kind of longevity, they can help your family ride out any political upheavals.

People are arguing that there is not much sun in the UK – think twice. For the first time, the UK’s solar panels generated more electricity than was produced from coal.

With advancements in photovoltaics today, the realistic prospect of such technologies producing 95% of their generating capacity after 20 years is now proven. Read the rest of this entry »

The US has declared war on regulations that protect the British people

We British are being divided and conquered!

The EU referendum is not what it seems!

The EU referendum is not what it seems!

US corporations have gone to war on the EU that has protected us from ‘profit before people’ ethics and especially the US pharmaceutical, health care, energy and food industries.

Pepsi Cola has finally bowed down to consumer pressure and is removing Aspartame from its ingredients. A small victory for common sense, a victory for people’s health. Read the rest of this entry »

The same crazy world; just without the blinkers on

“We don’t report on scientific consensus, we create it!” – Bob Wright NBC CEO.

Geoengineering hidden in plane sight.

Geoengineering hidden in plane sight.

We could see for ourselves the reduced wildlife around us; we could feel in our very soul that the climate had changed and if we’re truly honest; we knew that we were spoon-fed lies by media owners with a conflict of interest.

The social engineering of the past now requires geo-engineering to save the future.

You know that we live in a constructed reality when NASA’s James Hansen declares that “we cannot say how bad the global warming problem is; because everyone will panic”. Read the rest of this entry »

PV solar panels, Solar Edge inverters and voltage optimisers

April 26th, 2016

One of the joys of owning PV solar panels (photovoltaic), is that you can sit comfortably in the knowledge that your family is protected despite an energy industry that has no outlook farther than next year’s profits.

Should I upgrade my existing PV solar panel system?

Should I upgrade my existing PV solar panel system?

So you’re sitting comfortably with your newly installed photovoltaic array, then an unknown company comes along and offers you an upgrade. An upgrade to enhance your PV performance and squeeze a little more juice out of it.

Is this worth the extra expense?

Recently I was asked if it’s worth upgrading an existing PV solar panel system to a Solar Edge inverter with voltage optimisers system for £4,000 – no this is nuts!

The reality is that all good quality inverters cost around the same apart from Solar Edge and Enphase that are individual micro inverters designed to optimise each panel’s output individually. Read the rest of this entry »
