Export tariffs are tied to buying PV solar panels today. PV adopters today get a rate of return for selling their surplus power. The power surplus not required by battery storage. Benefit from a generation export tariff that all traditional energy suppliers offer. From its original conception in 2009, the feed-in tariff scheme spawned a silent revolution.
We see this on the rooftops around the country today. Many who opted to invest in solar panels are now sitting smugly. Read the rest of this entry »

North Korea today stopped all incoming flights to protect itself from Ebola.
Western governments have not yet banned incoming flights from those affected parts of Africa. When the inevitable occurs, our society will change forever! One thing is for sure, you certainly won’t get the truth from watching controlled media.
Preparedness has always been the aim of Power My Home, and those who questioned solar panels and the need to prepare are no longer skeptical today.

What a shame, no fun stuff, just boring old phone credit! This got me wondering about the rest of us.
The same situation is occurring with the average homeowner and their energy bills. The big difference between the gas and phone credit is energy costs are on an exponential climb! A paradigm shift is needed in the way we heat and power our homes. Read the rest of this entry »

I’m inspired by a similar pioneering spirit in the solar panel industry. Like the early internet, people began to venture into a world of exciting unknowns. Pioneers learn quickly and manage to avoid the pitfalls of such a new landscape.
In the fledgling days, bad salesmanship and disproportionate pricing were a problem! Today, good MCS-accredited solar installers are gone and such practices have been removed in our modern industry.

I’ve always strived to do the best job, so it annoys me when others do! Enthusiasm for PV solar has never been lacking within our industry either. Unfortunately, pride in your work doesn’t come naturally to all people!
Thankfully, in the solar panel industry today, the quality is not something you need to worry about. Read the rest of this entry »
