Challenge of global warming begins

Monday, October 10th, 2011

Now that the last of the sceptics and opposing factions have been cleared away from the global warming debate, the long and hard journey ahead to correct the mistakes of the past and save the natural world will undoubtedly begin.

Fighting for a safer world.

Fighting for a safer world.

Well, you would think so wouldn’t you?

After 20 years of misinformation, doubt peddling and general muck spreading, the energy companies who prevent the world from acting decisively and quickly have, just like the bankers, not being held accountable for their reckless actions and propaganda.

Just like the bankers, self-interest and greed have prevented the world from acting on this ultimate issue, which will see trillions of dollars of damage caused by more violent weather patterns that predict the very beginning of the climate change debate. (more…)

Free PV solar panels coming to an end

Tuesday, September 20th, 2011

Why would a company spend £10,000 to install PV solar panel (photovoltaic) on your home for free?

The PV solar panel apocalypse in the UK between 2012 and 2018.Answer: To make money from you, your home and the government’s feed-in tariffs scheme, which is intended to reward early adopters of solar panels.

This type of practice will soon be outlawed to prevent, under new proposals, energy companies taking advantage of those who will not be able to afford to buy solar panel installations of their own.

Companies making such offers have sparked a flurry of enthusiasm from people wishing to have free solar panels installed in their homes, but most are unaware of the pitfalls of such an arrangement. That is why the energy secretary Chris Huhne, has vowed to stop such practices taking advantage of people on lower incomes in most cases. (more…)

A PV solar-powered future

Why our future is PV solar-powered (photovoltaic)?

The PV solar panel apocalypse in the UK between 2012 and 2018.

What does the future hold for us? Will humankind continue to reach for the stars now that the space shuttle is retired and will we power our homes using the sun’s energy in the 21st-century? These are just some of the questions we put to the founder of Power My Home, Stuart Lovatt.

Born at a time when we detach from living with nature in the raw, only needing to survive in the ‘bubble’ we call civilisation, I, like you, have never had to think about my place in nature. (more…)

Our planet under attack

By writing this statement, I will cause people to feel strong emotions; some will feel despair, some anger and some confusion, but whatever they feel, they will unquestionably feel something!

“We, as members of our modern society, have been duped, tricked or brainwashed into believing that global warming does not exist, by corporations and big businesses whose only interests are to get us to consume more tobacco, oil, anything which makes them a huge profit.”

For 15 years, these establishments have spent billions drip-feeding us misinformation to protect their core business interests at the expense of our home planet. (more…)

Finding MCS accredited solar installers

Thursday, September 8th, 2011

Stuart Lovatt, the founder of Power My Home and a solar panel expert, has today devised a guide for homeowners, following reports which revealed that cowboy salespeople misled potential buyers of solar panel installations.

Finding good MCS solar panel installers.

Finding good solar panel installers.

Mr Lovatt says “The results of a consumer survey on this subject are worrying and could damage the reputation of our new fledgeling solar industry. Although solar panels are nothing new and have been around for 60 years, the government’s feed-in tariff scheme, which rewards pioneer adopters of solar technology, is leading some individuals and companies to give false information to cash in on naive consumers.”

It has shown that as many as 7 out of the 12 companies selling solar technology recommended putting solar panels on a shaded part of a roof, and a third of solar companies are over-estimating the energy generated by PV electric and solar heating panels. (more…)

Act on PV solar panel feed-in tariffs

Tuesday, August 16th, 2011

Did you know that the government-backed feed-in tariff scheme will offer homeowners fantastic returns for early adoption of PV solar panels (photovoltaic) technology?

There's nothing more powerful than when a PV's time has come.

There’s nothing more powerful than when PV’s time has come.

Did you also know that the feed-in tariff is structured so that later adopters of these fantastic technologies will receive much smaller incentives as solar panels become popular?

The fact is that homes across the world are all experiencing higher energy costs, with the United Kingdom (being at the end of the supply chain) feeling the worst of those rises. With the UK and Europe depend more and more on Russian supplies, predictions by all six of the big major energy companies are not good for the British consumer. (more…)
