PV solar panels for a crazy world


"An extraordinary road towards an
electric-driven world enhanced with PV."



The green movement has failed

May 10th, 2011

It breaks my heart to have to write this. As someone who loves the natural world, biodiversity and the human race, I find the realisation that we are unable to co-exist is sad.

Power My Home PV Solar Panels UKSo how have we, with all our modern wisdom and knowledge of the world and our place in it, failed on such an important issue?

Now, as Friends of the Earth has just discovered, the coalition government is about to rip up its environmental commitments.

Installing PV solar panels today

April 5th, 2011

PV solar panel (photovoltaic) installations are growing with the feed-in tariff scheme, but why?

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.

Global oil prices hit a two year high yesterday, with warnings that the soaring cost of raw materials could put the brakes on the U.K’s economic recovery.

Solar panel installations are growing with the feed-in tariff scheme, but why?

Crude oil pushed above $120 a (46.6p) per barrel after concerns that continued fighting in Libya, unrest in Yemen, forthcoming elections in Nigeria, one of the world’s biggest producers and the prospect of a resurgent US economy would put pressure on supplies.

Solar panels for global unrest

March 15th, 2011

Learning that current levels of oil production and use are not going to bring down civilisation with the ongoing crisis in the Middle East does not fill me with relief and satisfaction, which everyone seems to think it should do.

Welcome to feminist reality.I would have thought that irrespective of present Middle Eastern problems, ideas for renewable energy sources taken seriously.

Governments must invest in the right policies for manufacturing industries now because oil supplies are indeed finite. They should become experts in finding innovative and efficient alternatives to oil.

Competition for oil and gas in the Arctic regions are now going to increase, especially since last year, Scottish oil producer Cairn Energy confirmed it had found oil off Greenland, and one of NATO’s senior commanders warned the race for resources will lead to conflict.

Incentives for solar heating panels

March 10th, 2011

The coalition government gave details of its subsidies for solar heating panels this morning, as part of a series of environmental announcements aimed at boosting the government’s green credentials.

Power My Home PV Solar Panels UKThe awaited Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) aimed at increasing the amount of heat that homes and business can generate from low-carbon sources such as solar heating panels and evacuated tubes. Only a tiny proportion of the UK’s housing stocks have renewable heat technology.

Up to 25,000 installations will now support from July, to help people cover the installation price of greener heating systems and will ensure there is a fair spread of such technologies across all regions of the UK. Read the rest of this entry »


A German PV solar revolution

February 24th, 2011

Germany is the world leader in the implementation of PV solar panels (photovoltaic) into its everyday infrastructure.

Power My Home PV Solar Panels UKIn fact, it was a train journey to Salzburg in 2003 which persuaded me that PV solar panels were the future, to quote a horrible cliche.

They were everywhere, and so after getting home and researching why, I found that Germany had, in fact, been promoting solar panels through their pioneering feed-in tariff scheme since 1997.

The German solar panel market remains the most exciting in the world, with success forming the blueprint for countries like the UK today. Read the rest of this entry »


PV solar panels with feed-in tariffs

February 18th, 2011

Claim the PV solar panels (photovoltaic) feed-in tariff incentive before others do.

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.

What do cash strap Birmingham City Council and farmers have in common?

They are sun worshipers who are turning solar energy with solar panels into a steady financial income. Because the government’s new feed-in tariff policy is so tempting in its current form, that uptake has increased so much.

The feed-in tariff pays 15.44 pence per Kilowatt hour you generate, even if you use the energy yourself, and 3 pence more if you export it to the National grid network. By comparison, the average electric charge from your supplier is around 13 pence per kWh. Read the rest of this entry »
