“I am proud to be an early adopter and user of the internet, and I am equally inspired by the same pioneering spirit within the solar panel industry today.”
The internet then and the internet today.
Like the early internet before it, there were people ready to take advantage of new people venturing into a world of unknowns. Most pioneers can and do learn quickly and manage to avoid the pitfalls of a new landscape.
However, the same company names using salespeople from the second glazing school of salesmanship and charging disproportionate prices, sometimes more than 30 percent more than is deemed ethical, keep cropping up.
On the positive side, this makes the lives of good solar installers more comfortable, but, such behaviour, leave people confused and distrusting of this still fledgeling industry.

“They say ignorance is bliss, and it was, but now the signs that we are on the wrong side of our civilisation’s peak are everywhere.”
The road ahead is directed by signs.
The first word on this web site’s home page is “preparing”! I created this site as news that the North Sea oil and gas fields had ‘peaked in its products’ capabilities.
The chancellors recent ‘incentives and subsidies’ for the small-scale oil and gas companies, to tap into the last of the smaller oil fields (deemed uneconomic to the big exploration companies) is extremely telling.
Most signs that reveal our way of life is in trouble are subtle, some you have to read between the lines, but generally speaking, most people choose to ignore them.

“Throughout my life I have always been the best or strived to be the best at whatever job I had been doing at that time, so it annoys me when others don’t.”
A brighter road ahead with quality MCS solar installers.
During my earlier years in the world of work, I have worked on a factory line and produced more each shift than my colleagues. I worked in a web development company and produced better designs for my clients, and even within the solar panel industry, I sold more than the others within that particular group.
This I put down to my enthusiasm for the technology that was somewhat lacking with my colleagues at that time.
Unfortunately, pride in your work and customer satisfaction doesn’t come quickly to some people. Thankfully for the solar panel industry, the quality aspect of both the technology and its installation, is not something you need to worry about today. Read the rest of this entry »

“What you think is what you’ll become.”
These words encompass the only preaching required in modern schools.
Keep religion out of our schools.
The mind, even the adult mind is like a toddler. You can direct it in any direction, and the spirit will eagerly follow that path.
Unfortunately, this can lead down a path of harmful activity or to more beneficial and positive attributes.
For thousands of years, people in power have recognised this and have been influencing young minds ever since. As a Christian child why they are Christian? Ask a Muslim child, why they follow the Islamic faith? Read the rest of this entry »

“Amazingly, many people still hold the old worldview that PV solar panels (photovoltaic) are a wasted investment both personally and nationally. This myth has never been further from the truth, as I will prove beyond reasonable doubt.”
Today I will put solar panel technology on trial.
Keep calm and enjoy PV solar panels in the United Kingdom.
Your honour – One of the most significant injustices that the PV solar panel industry has had to endure during its fledgeling years, is the sticky issue of subsidies. Unfortunately, it’s under attack from the mainstream media that have their agendas.
The reality is that Britain has become the world’s fifth largest user of fossil fuels at the cost of £2.6 billion with an additional £280m in VAT tax breaks this year alone. These perverse amounts of money are never mentioned alongside the comparatively small solar energy subsidies which the media above love to complain about. Read the rest of this entry »

“The established religions who purport to know what is going on, actually don’t know what is going on. They preach to others who equally don’t know what is going on that they know what is going on, so what is the hell is going on here?”
Eye in the sky, or pie in the sky?
I suspect the story of the universe and life within it, is much more fantastical and with time running far, much deeper than the most brilliant scientific minds can imagine.
Do not fear to be eccentric in your beliefs because every opinion now accepted as gospel, was once believed to be eccentric too. Beliefs, religions and acknowledged science, changes in relatively short periods of geological time. Read the rest of this entry »

“The greatest fight for independence was the US declaration against the then oppressive rule of the British in 1765. The White House has stood proudly as a symbol of independence – and even more so, now it has been equipped with PV solar panels (photovoltaic).”
PV solar panels are a technology before its time.
This move has become a renewed symbol of independence as the American people look for alternative ways to fight for energy independence in an increasingly volatile and energy-hungry world.
This statement by the US authorities of national pride in their solar panel industry while duplicated in our country and within our own lives.
The most significant power of the 20th-century has finally vindicated my decade-long pursuit of the solar-panelled dream. From the earliest days when people only saw solar technology as a ‘green statement’, to its current status as a wise person’s long-term investment. Read the rest of this entry »

“We are now seeing a new generation of people awakening to the betrayal of this current marriage of political power to corporate power, which ultimately only benefit a minority over the majority.”
Keep your head-up and your eyes open.
They (those above political class) are deliberately changing the system to drive wealth upward through society, rather than downward, as has always happened in the past.
In today’s post-peak oil world, increasingly more people face a decision every day about whether to spend money on food or heating – they cannot afford both.
This affordability problem is only going to get worse as predictions for energy costs and the associated difficulties creep further and further into the middle-class world too.

“This sentence is the most profound statement I have heard over the last ten years since working on Heat my Home. It now marks this point in time, in which the benefits of installing solar panels, exceed the reasons not to.”
Are solar panels worth it? From this point in time, certainly.
This statement came from one of our regular contributing experts within our solar enthusiasts’ forum, where the age-old question of, ‘are solar panels worth it’, occasionally gets asked.
This once common question now gets asked far less frequently than even a couple of years ago.
Since the start of the German-inspired feed-in tariff scheme (FIT), the incentive reduced to newer adopters, several times to align the reward scheme with the reducing price of an average solar panel installation today. Read the rest of this entry »

“You don’t need me to tell you that Vladimir Putin has the whole of Europe in a ‘cheque mate’ position, with his hands firmly on thirty percent of the energy resources we use and ultimately the affordability of heating our homes.”
The squabbling for thinner and thinner energy resources has begun, and we are not in a good position.
An alliance which will affect your ability to heat your home.
Firstly, you need to know the historical context in which we find our current predicament and more importantly, how you can protect your family – despite the power wrangling and muscle flexing now going on within current world affairs.
I used to wonder in my uneducated years, why Adolf Hitler, spread his forces so thinly, which ultimately cost him the war. It wasn’t until I learned about peak oil and the continued fight for energy resources that it became clear. Hitler was attempting to gain full control of Europe and Russia’s primary oil fields.
