How much do PV solar panels cost?

Thursday, September 20th, 2018

Many times cheaper than they used to be.

How much do PV solar panels cost?

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…)

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 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…)

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.

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 occuring 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…)

Every generation has its own threat

Wednesday, November 11th, 2015

The cold war is heating up again, yet we must view these geopolitical tussles like children squabbling as a much larger danger creeps towards its next child-sized meal.

The enemy is self-deception.

The enemy is self-deception.

Past civilisations knew the threats they faced. This danger was usually men on horses with swords, and so spent vast amounts of their resources to combat that. Today all nations, united or not, have a common enemy that is the unintended consequences of our industrialisation. (more…)

Our solar panels are better than their panels

Friday, October 16th, 2015

“The road to a cleaner world has been made especially difficult by commission-hungry salesmen with just enough technical knowledge to the bag they’re next sale – but don’t lose heart.”

Solar panels are essential for a cleaner greener world.

Solar panels are essential for a cleaner greener world.

I developed Heat my Home as a resource for the earliest solar adopters, to help them avoid the pitfalls that come with being a solar pioneer.

Solar panel technology has been that next ‘big thing’ for a few years now in the eye of the salesperson, but the biggest industry lesson learned was; if you’re told “Our panels are the best in the world”, then back away slowly and politely. (more…)
