Why hate photovoltaic solar panels?

The solar wind bombards the Earth, like sound hitting the eardrum.

Why hate photovoltaic solar panels?

PV solar panels transform solar particles into electrons.

Solar energy or more specifically photovoltaics have had a rough time from David Cameron’s “Greenest Government Ever”.

Therefore, the solar industry asks, “why the government is becoming more addicted to fossil fuels?”.

Instead of scaling-up, the use of self-generation technologies such as PV systems, there seems to be a policy of stamping it out!

Ironically, rhetoric that the UK is at the forefront of the growth in self-generation technologies does not match their actions.

Last year’s feed-in tariff reduction confirms this!

This is despite the urgent need, for self-generation moving forwards.

Further scaling back of solar panel incentives does not make any logical sense and will reduce the industry’s ability to export globally.

This situation is not illogical; it’s craziness.

Long-established PV installers have ceased trading after such mismanagement. These continued assaults on solar incentives result in public confusion and a lack of confidence.

Additionally, George Osbourne’s public hatred for the green movement has left investors in solar technologies, holding back or transferring business to other countries with more foresight.

Cameron and Osbourne could have spearheaded technologies for UK jobs and global growth.

An opportunity now sadly missed!

The new, self-generation technology age that China, India, Germany, and America are hotly pursuing, will leave Britain as an importer only.

Essential jobs will be lost to those countries yet again!

Underinvesting in the United Kingdom, can only lead us all down one unpleasant road.

So we ask, even with the potential for an exciting new industry to develop, on a scale not seen since the motor car industry, why do our leaders stubbornly continue the “business as usual” model?

I’m guessing the foreign-owned Big Six energy companies, don’t want the British to self-generate.

A wave of solar panel installations last year spooked them. It saw the potential to dissolve a hold over us that spans to the time of William The Conquerer!

They saw a future where they had to pay us, rather than us paying them.

The big six companies only exist because of our dependence.

With the success of the feed-in tariffs came an urgent need to close the floodgates.

They stubbornly refused to acknowledge the court case defeats they embarrassingly endured too.

Two illegal actions brought about and won by the solar panel industry, can only mean one thing?

The establishment doesn’t want you to self-generate with solar panels.

An excellent reason why you should.
