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.

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…)

Avoid solar buyback schemes!

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 to report companies that trade in such contracts.

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…)

Fighting in solar panels corner

Wednesday, August 24th, 2016

Twelve years of shouting from the rooftops about solar panels have seen tears of joy, sadness and quite frankly, I have put my life on the line in this good fight.

Fighting for a solar-powered world.

Why?

Because a solar-powered civilisation is not only achievable; it’s necessary!

Today, we have secretive, global-wide geoengineering occurring because of forty years of deception to simply keep you blindly shopping.

And like national debt today, the ecological problems get kicked further down the road for later generations to deal with – we are that generation! (more…)

How to purchase solar panels?

Friday, October 16th, 2015

I developed Power My Home as a resource for the earliest solar adopters.

Find MCS solar panel installers.

We helped solar pioneers avoid the pitfalls.

Solar panels have been the next ‘big thing’ for many years.

The largest lesson learned in the earliest days is if you’re told:

“Our solar panels are the best in the world”, back away slowly and politely. (more…)

Buying PV solar panels today

Wednesday, September 30th, 2015

A good friend of mine phoned me about a doorstep canvasser selling solar panels.

How to clean solar panels.

I got a complete breakdown of the conversation, and it upset me!

Government handling of the incentives for solar panels allowed the shameless to take advantage.

Cold calling teams urging folks into getting solar panels installed!

The price on offer was around £4,000 plus over the actual price!

These sales practices were a blight on our industry between 2009-2015. (more…)

Are solar panels any good?

Tuesday, July 21st, 2015

I’m regularly asked whether solar panels are worth it?

Photovoltaic solar panels in the UK.

I simply reply that nearly 1 million homes in the United Kingdom have them.

Many homeowners install solar panels to invest long-term.

Solar pioneering people are taking matters into their own hands.

I’d declare solar panels as a symbol of cool as politicians blunder through the 21st-century. (more…)
