I’m always excited by new solar panel innovations.

Lets’s take a look at thermodynamic solar panels.

First impressions, too good to be true!

The hype around this technology does warrant closer inspection.

This new solar technology is a solar heating system that surpasses flat-plate and evacuated tube systems by clever use of integrating heat-pump technology. (more…)

Buying cheap PV solar panels

We have always encouraged people to get an installation while the going is good.

PV solar panel costs and prices.

Many listened and now enjoy the benefits that solar panels offer.

Installing PV solar panels (photovoltaic) on your roof is a no-brainer in today’s world.

Unfortunately for most, the benefits of a PV solar system are not yet tuned.

Many are locked into the mindset that Energy Switch Sites is the answer!

The golden age of cheap traditional energy has been over for two decades now. (more…)

The cost of PV solar panels

PV solar panels are a worthwhile investment projecting far into the future.

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

In fact, there’s nothing more powerful than when a technological time has arrived.

The current incentives for photovoltaic solar panels are numerous.

Few technologies are operational and still useful thirty years after purchase.

Selling surplus power to your supplier, storing surplus power for nighttime use, heating your hot water element, and of course, charging the car on the drive.

All this, and I didn’t even mention saving money on bills.

People en mass are encouraged to install, just to keep expenditure from spiraling out of control. (more…)
