A paradigm shift in thinking about solar panels

“Upon finding out my schoolboy nephew had got his first paid job, I realised that most of his hard-earned money spent on just mobile phone credit. What a shame, no fun stuff, just boring old phone credit. This got me wondering about the rest of us.”

A paradigm shift can be as easy as looking up rather than down.

A paradigm shift can be as easy as looking up rather than down.

It would seem that the same situation is occurring with Mr and Mrs average homeowner and their energy bills. The big difference between the gas in your pipes and my nephew’s phone credit is phone credit has never been cheaper and still falling – whereas energy costs are on an exponential climb.

If ever a paradigm shift was needed in the way we all heat and power our homes, it would indeed be now. But history shows, such dramatic change in thinking never happens overnight, nevertheless, the drip, drip, drip of transition, always speeds up to become a deluge eventually. (more…)

Greed may have consequences for the solar industry

“I am proud to be an early adopter and user of the internet, and I am equally inspired by the same pioneering spirit within the solar panel industry today.”

The internet then and the internet today.

The internet then and the internet today.

Like the early internet before it, there were people ready to take advantage of new people venturing into a world of unknowns. Most pioneers can and do learn quickly and manage to avoid the pitfalls of a new landscape.

However, the same company names using salespeople from the second glazing school of salesmanship and charging disproportionate prices, sometimes more than 30 percent more than is deemed ethical, keep cropping up.

On the positive side, this makes the lives of good solar installers more comfortable, but, such behaviour, leave people confused and distrusting of this still fledgeling industry.

Finding the best MCS solar panel installers

“Throughout my life I have always been the best or strived to be the best at whatever job I had been doing at that time, so it annoys me when others don’t.”

A brighter road ahead with quality MCS solar installers.

A brighter road ahead with quality MCS solar installers.

During my earlier years in the world of work, I have worked on a factory line and produced more each shift than my colleagues. I worked in a web development company and produced better designs for my clients, and even within the solar panel industry, I sold more than the others within that particular group.

This I put down to my enthusiasm for the technology that was somewhat lacking with my colleagues at that time.

Unfortunately, pride in your work and customer satisfaction doesn’t come quickly to some people. Thankfully for the solar panel industry, the quality aspect of both the technology and its installation, is not something you need to worry about today. (more…)

Does the power of prayer come from above or the restless mind?

“What you think is what you’ll become.”

These words encompass the only preaching required in modern schools.

Keep religion out of our schools.

Keep religion out of our schools.

The mind, even the adult mind is like a toddler. You can direct it in any direction, and the spirit will eagerly follow that path.

Unfortunately, this can lead down a path of harmful activity or to more beneficial and positive attributes.

For thousands of years, people in power have recognised this and have been influencing young minds ever since. As a Christian child why they are Christian? Ask a Muslim child, why they follow the Islamic faith? (more…)

What the hell is going on?

“The established religions who purport to know what is going on, actually don’t know what is going on. They preach to others who equally don’t know what is going on that they know what is going on, so what is the hell is going on here?”

Eye in the sky or pie in the sky?

Eye in the sky, or pie in the sky?

I suspect the story of the universe and life within it, is much more fantastical and with time running far, much deeper than the most brilliant scientific minds can imagine.

Do not fear to be eccentric in your beliefs because every opinion now accepted as gospel, was once believed to be eccentric too. Beliefs, religions and acknowledged science, changes in relatively short periods of geological time. (more…)

The awakening, love and the pursuit of wealth

“We are now seeing a new generation of people awakening to the betrayal of this current marriage of political power to corporate power, which ultimately only benefit a minority over the majority.”

Keep your head up and your eyes open.

Keep your head-up and your eyes open.

They (those above political class) are deliberately changing the system to drive wealth upward through society, rather than downward, as has always happened in the past.

In today’s post-peak oil world, increasingly more people face a decision every day about whether to spend money on food or heating – they cannot afford both.

This affordability problem is only going to get worse as predictions for energy costs and the associated difficulties creep further and further into the middle-class world too.

I won’t eat Tuna Fish from the Pacific Ocean anymore

“There is a saying “what goes around comes around”, and this has never been truer where Fukushima radiation leaks are concerned.”

Safe to eat? Are you sure?

Safe to eat? Are you sure?

If you think this problem is a long distant newspaper headline, then think again!

If you only obtain your news from the mainstream media, then you can be forgiven for not knowing the real scale of the problem because there seems to be a real effort to conceal the true extent of this disaster.

Three years on from the radiation leak of an immeasurable scale by the meltdown of three of the plants six nuclear reactors, the true extent of this radioactive leakage, which still occurs even today, is avoided by the global mainstream news. (more…)

Return on investment for PV solar panels

Wednesday, February 12th, 2014

“Power My Home’s philosophy is to educate while promoting the use of PV solar panels (photovoltaic) for the long-term benefit of the home or business owner.”

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.

The benefits of installing solar panels are well-documented in our web pages. Small bills again, revenue generation and the attraction to home buyers, if you wish to sell your home, is the most obvious, but pride and a sense of ‘doing the right thing’ are not so well-known unless you take the plunge.

All positive attributes that I have been shouting from the rooftops (excuse the pun) for a decade of my life now. However, I have also been warning that the current higher rates of feed-in tariff incentives will only be available for the early adopters. (more…)

The possibility of a secret space program

“Revelations are emerging of the second tier of humanity that’s preparing for the downside of peak oil and apparently were not invited.”

US President Eisenhower warned us of this, as far back as the early 1960s with his warning of the military industrial complex exit speech.

Are we easily duped?

Are we easily duped?

So why am I writing about this here? A secretive agenda may be holding back propulsion and energy generation technology, which could help solve the energy and environmental problems we now find ourselves.

“The world’s true power brokers have been managing to keep their secrets from the mainstream populations for well over 60 years now.”

The planets’ life-giving systems are failing fast and the fossil fuel based economies that our modern day empire depends upon are nearly gone. While the under tier continues to work to generate wealth on a daily basis, the worlds elite and true power holders are using our created wealth to orchestrate black governmental projects to push for the stars.

Obama signals that solar panels are a cool

“President Obama in his ‘state of the nation’ address has made clear and precise commitments to support the solar panel industry in the US which will help create jobs and help transition away from what even he now views as inevitable. The end of the oil age.”

Ushering in solar panels as the new norm.

Building a model for a non-petroleum based economy with more localised food production, alongside environmental protection’s are pivotal to our modern world’s future.

“All intertwined and yet all essential to keep the thin veneer of social functioning.”

The stable global climate, we all grew up in is now obsolete and preparing for both extreme winter and summer weather events is paramount meaning the perpetual ‘growth’ model must also soon be outdated. (more…)
