PV solar panels for a crazy world


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


Don’t rush into buying solar panels, but don’t dilly dally either

“A good friend of mine phoned me up about a conversation he had with a doorstep canvasser, who was pressing him into adopting solar panels before the January change.”

I wouldn't recommend an East/West solar installation.

I wouldn't recommend an East/West solar installation to my mum so that I wouldn't recommend you either.

I get a complete breakdown of the conversation, and I can tell you it upset me.

Firstly, yet again the seemingly incompetent way in which the government seems to handle the incentives for solar panels is allowing shameless companies to take advantage of people.

The direct sales and cold calling teams are ramping up activity and knocking on double some doors to urge folks into getting solar panels installed before it’s too late – I thought. Read the rest of this entry »



The human herd

“Individualism is an illusion. We all believe it, but as our Prime Minister David Cameron has now as demonstrated, the yearning to fit into the group will have you carrying out the most unusual of acts.”

Prime Ministerial Legacy - They will generate their own power when pigs fly says David Cameron.

Prime Ministerial Legacy – They will generate their own power when pigs fly says David Cameron.

If I have learned anything from my time on this Earth, it’s that people will do the dumbest of things to fit into and impress the human herd.

The great ‘switch your energy supplier‘ game is a simple trick used to give ‘the herd’ an illusion of choice. Moving you from field to field doesn’t allow you to escape the farm that imprisons you. They lock you into a lifetime of unnecessary expense and keep you suckling at the teet of foreign-owned energy suppliers. Read the rest of this entry »



I’ve found the holy grail

“Thousands of years of searching, but today I can finally solve this mystery.”

I used to take the standard vitamins and iron supplements religiously, but I still felt like I needed two large cups of coffee in the mornings while still feeling fuzzy headed mid-morning. Today, I can do my exercises BEFORE my morning coffee, and my mind feels sharper.

The holy grail is purported to be a vessel once containing the blood of Jesus. This tale was fabricated by the early Church to help convert pagans to Christianity. Most of the Christian customs actually originate from pagan backgrounds.

In fact, the actual ‘Holy Grail’ has nothing to do with a cup. The story was taken from thousands of years of oral-based stories from travellers who once encountered people on their Silk Road travel, living much longer and healthier lives than we did in Europe during those times.

PV solar panels in the UK, don’t make me laugh

“PV (photovoltaic) solar panels don’t work in the UK”.

PV solar panels effectiveness in the UK.

PV solar panels effectiveness in the UK.

Yes, they do work and work brilliantly. If people actually researched the subject properly, they would find out that solar panels run less-efficiently in hotter climates than cooler ones.

You don’t even have to take my word for it, as now over 600.000 solar panels installed in Scotland alone have taken place in the last five years.

Annual UK solar radiation figures:
Scotland: 900-1000 kWh per sqm.
Midlands: 1000-1200 kWh per sqm.
South coast: 1100-1300 kWh per sqm.

Then there are the countless solar heating panel installations installed before the current feed-in tariff scheme. Solar heating panels were the most popular type of solar panel installation in the UK before the advent of the solar tariff schemes. Read the rest of this entry »



Time for PV solar panels is now

“The UK government’s efforts to kill off the PV (photovoltaic) solar industry and lead us to a fracking hellish future has begun. Regressive greed-based policies have replaced progression toward giving people a choice to produce their own clean, affordable energy.”

Taking away PV-power from the people and handing it back to the big energy firms.

Taking away PV-power from the people and handing it back to the big energy firms.

Cuts by the government to support PV solar technology will take away power from people and be handing it back to big energy firms who have been secretly lobbying to prevent alternative energy taking off.

Begin the fight back by adding your name to the parliament petition:

We are now finding that there was never any sound long-term strategy where global economics are concerned. Those cheap toasters from China that so many people rejoiced about pre-credit crunch, came with a huge price tag! Read the rest of this entry »



PV solar panels and our debilitated civilisation

“Hundreds of years in the future, the oil industry will be no more than a small industry supplying lubrication products and the thought of burning it for energy will be viewed as neanderthal.”

Ensuring your children’s survival once involved appeasing the sun gods. Humanity once again needs to worship the sun.

Ensuring your children’s survival once involved appeasing the sun gods. Humanity once again needs to worship the sun.

The baby steps towards this worldview have already begun, and the oil industry has used and continue to use every dirty trick in the book to prevent this timeline from occurring.

Wrestling the power that the traditional energy industry holds over us, will be like wrestling a dangerous object from a belligerent toddler – a necessary, but painful procedure.

Are solar panels in the UK worth it?

“The revolution will not be televised. The revolution is on the world’s rooftops as solar technology becomes a symbol of hope in a civilisation that is now beginning to fail due to its dependence on burning dead dinosaurs.”

They don't want you to generate your own power which makes solar technologies cool.

They don’t want you to generate your own power which makes solar technologies cool.

I regularly get asked whether solar panels are worth it, and I just reply that 600,000 homes in only the United Kingdom alone have them on their roofs.

Many installed solar panels to invest, but the vast majority of people I spoke to in the last decade, merely see trouble down the road for their children/grandchildren and want to invest in a better future.

These are planetary sized issues that “we are truly all in it together”. Solar savvy people are just taking matters into their own hands, and I would go further and declare solar panels as a symbol of calm while the world’s politicians continue to blunder their way through the 21st-century.

Scrabbling about in the dirt and destroying our own countryside

“Go wave your banners while the grownups run the country”.

After years of austerity during when the wealthiest 10% have seen their wealth increase between 50% and 100%.

After years of austerity when the wealthiest 10% have seen their wealth increase between 50% and 100%.

These are the contemptuous words uttered by Richard Holloway a Conservative councillor who was commenting about the austerity protests.

The truth is that 76% didn’t vote Conservative and the working poor whom his party’s policies now besmirch have nothing to lose, but their zero-hours contracts.

Mr Holloway’s and his ‘mockery’ should send shivers down the spine of any parent who cares about what world their children will live. It’s a real eye-opener to the contempt toward the general public that’s hidden behind closed doors and how this power-drunken man has given us a glimpse of the truth. Read the rest of this entry »



Earth’s magnetic changes and solar energy

“Strange sounds, atmospheric compression waves and magnetic anomalies reported around the world, could mean we may be the first humans to witness a magnetic pole flip.”

It’s no secret that the Earth’s magnetic poles flip from North to South and back again every 786,000 years, but what is a mystery is that governments around the world are genuinely concerned that our planet is showing signs of flipping as soon as this century.

What’s the most alarming is the strange sounds trumpeted around the world that some people have compared to the trumpets of the Archangel Gabriel from Revelations in the Bible – I digress. Read the rest of this entry »



The power of women behind the solar revolution

“As a man raised by a headstrong woman and who has respect for other empowered women, even today within our industry, thus I would like to welcome Amanda Rudd to the Department of Energy and Climate Change.”

Rudd has recently declared:

“We in the UK are leading the way in clean technology, innovation, creating new jobs and helping to power our economic recovery.”

I look forward to witnessing the power of a woman to help push the solar panel industry into its rightful place as the people’s technology of the 21st-century. Read the rest of this entry »
