Great news!

The shambles that is the current government has finally decided to support the UK’s PV-solar industry.

Shamed by protesting school children!

The new Smart Export Guarantee means energy suppliers will purchase surplus PV-power from 1st January 2020. (more…)

Be like Nigel Farage

It doesn’t matter if you’re a Leaver or Remain, adopting German passports for your children like Nigel Farage is the way forward for us too.

Not playing by the rules with PV solar panels.

Failing that, following the German example with energy is the best plan B for your kids.

Preparing for the aftershocks of leaving the European Union is imperative for our children too. (more…)

A new dawn for PV solar panels

I’ve been crowing about the virtues of solar panels for fifteen years now.

A new dawn for PV solar panels.

Today, we reached a moment I knew would always come.

Subsidies are no longer required for PV solar panels (photovoltaic) to be financially viable.

A landmark moment for humanity.

Energy consumers can now ‘go there own way’. Astute homeowners are leaving behind those still chasing their tails on ‘Switch’ sites. (more…)

Lies about solar panels in the media

Once you’ve done the basics with energy efficiency, then reducing your reliance with PV (photovoltaic) and EV technologies becomes a personal pursuit for freedom.

Solar panels relationship with the media.

Sadly, the Mass Media used its power to attack the advancement of solar technology over the last five years.

Your masters would never have done that if they didn’t fear it.

Once the green energy cat is out of the bag; lobbyists know their profits will never be the same ever again. (more…)

How much power do solar panels generate?

Saudi Arabia has declared war on every man, women and child by deliberately raising global oil prices – again.

A brave new world with PV and EV-tech.

A brave new world with PV and EV-tech.

So, how much power do solar panels generate; is the wrong question.

What power does solar technology wield; is a much more appropriate one.

I say the power to belittle unworthy oil-rich Kingdoms. (more…)

How much do PV solar panels cost?

Many times cheaper than they used to be.

However, what’s the cost of not installing solar panels projecting forward?

Life’s made easy by asking the right questions and not necessarily the obvious ones.

There is currently a quiet renewables revolution going on with PV (photovoltaic), EV’s (electric vehicles) and wind power at the cutting edge within the UK today. (more…)

Solar panels are just a matter of time

The greatest gift bestowed to someone is your time.

London was destined to be the first hydrogen bomb testing ground.

London was destined to be the first hydrogen bomb testing ground.

Time is fluid, often gifted and taken away at Her Majesty’s pleasure.

It’s not celebrities, politicians or rock stars that influence the future; it’s humble men like my late grandfather, Donald Lovatt (aged 96) who willingly joined the para’s age 17 to join the fight against totalitarianism in WW2.

Millions of ordinary people came together to change a very bleak looking timeline at that time. (more…)

Things I’ve learned on my journey

Dear Son.

Being human today is difficult.

To be human means making mistakes. We’ve all made mistakes, and some don’t even know that they’ve made them yet, but being a grown-up means assessing and adjusting to new information.

13,000-year old Gobekli Tepe - The human story is far more fantastic than the history books have you believe.

13,000-year-old Gobekli Tepe – The human story is far more fantastic than the history books have you believe.

For better or worse, I had to acquire knowledge that some may deem as ‘basic stuff’ for myself.

Here for you, are some that I hope will help you avoid some of the knocks and scrapes of life and hopefully empower yourself to avoid the pitfalls that come with living in this modern world.

Knowledge is power. (more…)

Generations of electricity and poor health

I can pinpoint the exact moment in time when health issues associated with modern living began and its wholly associated with electricity generation.

Question everything.

Question everything.

In 1882 Thomas Edison helped construct the first power station in New York, and the modern era began.

Human beings went from burning wood to electricity for illumination and heating.

Within a few short decades, a long-held tradition of using ‘wood ash’ to fertilise crops was extinguished and the 90 essential nutrients that growing food with ‘nutrient rich’ wood ash was lost forever. (more…)

Solar buyback schemes want your feed-in tariff contract!

Tuesday, September 6th, 2016

Since its inception, the feed-in tariff scheme has seen over 750,000 homes install PV solar panels, but in another extraordinary twist to the story; contracts are now being purchased like Pokemon trading cards.

UPDATE: The MCS accreditation body wants solar-owners report companies that trade in such contracts.

Are solar buyback schemes a good thing?

Are solar buyback schemes a good thing?

Beneficial or not?

One proud solar-owner told me he’d been contacted by such a company who wanted to buy his feed-in tariff contract for a measly couple of grand under what they called a ‘Solar buyback’ scheme!

This ‘lucky’ PV owner was offered the option of cashing in on his FIT with a tax-free lump sum.

I mused that “like the infamous ‘payday loans’ and ‘unlock your home’s equity’ schemes, you would have to be either desperate or ignorant to accept such an offer. (more…)
