Investing in PV solar panels (photovoltaic) can be daunting for many homeowners, but Stuart Lovatt, the founder of Power My Home, explains why an investment in solar technology is a positive thing.
The financial benefits of installing PV solar panel technology in homes and commercial premises across the United Kingdom are currently the primary appeal to many when considering this home improvement investment.
Only around 10% of customers are installing for environmental reasons, with the rest installing because of rising energy costs.
Most people look at PV solar panels at a domestic level because they are only getting two or three per cent interest on an average ISA or a bank savings account. Read the rest of this entry »

Wouldn’t it be good if, instead of paying high prices for your domestic or commercial power, you were able to generate most of your energy and your energy supplier paid you for the full amount that you produce?
There’s nothing more powerful than when PV solar technologies time has come.
The buzz about PV solar panels (photovoltaic) came since the government introduced the feed-in tariffs scheme last year.
The idea of solar panels being used to generate power for your home or business can now be a reality for the majority of homeowners and companies and is now available throughout the United Kingdom.
PV solar panels are a thriving industry now. Homeowners are now starting to understand the financial benefits of solar technologies, including solar heating panels, including the money they are likely to save on their heating bills. Read the rest of this entry »

PV solar panels (photovoltaic) aren’t just about going green; they can save you thousands of pounds!
Solar heating and PV electric panels.
You need a southerly facing roof with space on which to put the panels, which don’t require direct sunshine to work, just daylight.
You gain financially in 3 simple ways: your home value increases, you save on your energy bills and the feed-in tariff scheme gives you a guaranteed income from the energy you create.
Consider these gains over 20-30 years, and you’ll see that it can be extremely beneficial.

Fossil fuels are no longer going to be a viable option for our children’s and grand children’s future use, and their eventual demise is already pushing present energy prices up higher and higher.
Ofgem is predicting that there may be 20% electricity price hikes by 2020, and also that future supplies are in jeopardy.
Stuart Lovatt from Power My Home says, “I see our current energy predicament similar to the 1930s when people sensed the build-up to war, but nobody wanted to admit it, not even the Prime Minister.”
Understanding that the government’s energy policies have been planned to take place over a period of around 50 years or more, we are leaving the last policy timescale with North Sea resources depleting after only 30 years. Read the rest of this entry »

The energy crunch cannot be ignored any longer. The world’s governments do not have a plan B for the economic crisis, and the same applies to the death of cheap oil.
In case you hadn’t noticed, the black stuff is being consumed rather quickly these days, and the price is a steadily rising year on year. The cost of oil in ten years will make current petrol prices seem tame.
Failure to look ahead to the future will be much maligned when, in many of our lifetimes, we will begin to face widespread global energy shortages and unaffordable prices.
Significant investment needs to be made by everyone over the coming years. This issue is not going to go away and will likely be one of the most critical problems we will face this century. Read the rest of this entry »

PV (photovoltaic) solar panels use rows of solar cells, made of a semiconductor material that reacts with sunlight to produce an electric current.
There’s nothing more powerful than when PV’s time has come.
This electricity is then distributed around the property to power appliances and lighting, or if surplus to requirement, it is sold to the National Grid network.
The solar cells are the power stations of every PV system.
