“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.
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.

“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.
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.

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

“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.”
ESA's geomagnetic satellite monitoring system.
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 »

“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.”
The sun goddess Sunna from German mythology.
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 »

“Get them while they’re hot.”
Indeed, its been a week of good and bad news for the solar panel industry.
Sunrise or sunset for the industry?
From day one, I have always cautioned that the incentives available for solar panels were a window of opportunity and those smart enough to take advantage of the opportunity will be rewarded financially and self-righteously for decades to come.
The uptake of photovoltaic solar panels, in particular, has been steadily increasing year on year thanks in most part to the ‘Labour’ inspired feed-in tariff scheme. However, this new ‘Conservative’ led government is almost certainly going to sweep away the incentives currently on offer. Read the rest of this entry »

“Let’s cut the crap! You cannot do anything economically without an affordable and long-term energy strategy. Every other electoral promise is just throwing sweets about like a clown at a child’s birthday party.”
No deficit reduction, no NHS spending, no up-down or down-up wealth creation can occur if our energy supply isn’t properly secured.
Increased disposable income for the masses and thus a more resilient economy cannot occur while our nation is dependent on the big six energy companies. No amount of switching providers will change that fact.
In fact, the only reason the 1980s boomed was that of the considerable investment in the North Sea, but now a more permanent fix is required for our future energy requirements.
Fast forward thirty years and the short term-ism of that investment is now becoming apparent (ironically, less time than solar panel systems working life) and a fresher approach to unlocking household income from the uncertainty and volatility of global energy markets is now required.

“Keeping up with the neighbours has been the driving force for our economy since the 1950s and has begun to drive the desire for solar panels today.”
Appearing to be middle class.
Although this social-climbing can help drive the uptake of alternative technologies going forward, unfortunately, this desire to be accepted as an equal among the German car clad driveways of Britain has tainted our society’s ability to empathise.
As a forty-something growing up in the 1970s, the desire of my parents to be middle classed was always overshadowed by the hope to survive the economic problems of those times.
Today, I hear people who should know better, now condemning the victims of our current economic woes and this has awoken me to the mass hate-filled indoctrination being spewed out by interwoven media and politics. Read the rest of this entry »

“The largest demographic to adopt solar panels today were young in the 60s. So 1960s style shifts in culture is being led by the Baby boomers that are still rebellious at heart.”
1968 – Showing the young ones, how its done.
Releasing the grip of a centralised energy system was never going to be easy.
Decentralising our energy supply and disinvestment in fossil fuels achieved while being led by those who have changed our society before.
The current establishment don’t want people generating their power or heating our homes without them.
If you want to teach politicians that ‘the people’ hold the balance of power or your merely fed-up of being a cash cow for a privatised energy system, then solar panels are for you. Read the rest of this entry »

“When I was young and stupid, I decided to show off and climb a cliff face unaided. Risky – Yes, did it end well – No. My ugly mug in the local paper was a testament to that.”
There’s no getting away from it, life is a risky experience, and we all make mistakes. Some people go-make snap decisions, and some are meticulous and research before embarking on life-changing choices.
Wisdom is no more than your lifetime’s accumulation of mistakes and triumphs, but smart people learn from others too.
This reason is why I created Power my Home. To help people researching solar panels and who want to immerse themselves in the subject before taking the plunge. Read the rest of this entry »
