“It is with great pleasure that we wish to congratulate you on the effective and efficient installation of our PV solar panels, and we look forward to reaping the benefits in due course.”

The PV solar panel apocalypse in the UK between 2012 and 2018.

We chose the solar electric and solar heating systems which could be installed to meet our environmentally friendly and cost-effective requirements.

Despite delays due to non-availability of parts and the need to secure an alternative installer, was undertaken within the time specified without significant disruption to the running of our home.

We only lost electricity for a short time while the installation was connected and everything was made fully functional as soon as possible after installation. (more…)

“Do we spend our nation’s money on new roads or PV solar panel technology?”

United Kingdom's energy independence with PV solar panels.

The stupidity of some people knows no bounds, but you would think that our leaders in government would know better, wouldn’t you? I am afraid not, and I am so scared for the future.

The recent decision to cut the subsidies to homeowners through the hugely successful feed-in tariffs scheme was necessary to help reduce the deficit.

Or so we thought!

A crazy decision to build more road infrastructure has left me shocked.

Sustainable growth with PV solar panels

“About the recent events regarding the feed-in tariff scheme, for example, the early reduction of the tariff rates and the media attention that the PV solar panel industry has received lately, you could be forgiven for thinking the industry was dying.”

The PV solar panel apocalypse in the UK between 2012 and 2018.In fact, the opposite is right, and the PV solar industry can now grow more sustainably and flourish, benefiting more homeowners who want to reduce their dependence on the expensive, traditional fossil fuels, which are becoming scarcer with each decade.

Despite all the protests about the recent feed-in tariff reduction for PV solar panels. There is an underlying truth that people will have to find alternatives to oil, gas and electricity supplies, the consumption of which will continue to rise unabated in the coming years. (more…)

PV solar installations hit record numbers

“The world has gone crazy for PV solar panels. Across the globe from Germany to the USA and the Far East, the rush to install PV solar panels has well and truly started.”

Record PV solar panel installations in the United Kingdom.

Even here in the United Kingdom, PV solar panels installations have rocketed to unprecedented levels over the last couple of years. You may have seen some PV solar panels pop-up in your area recently.

The rush for photovoltaic technology, alongside the global increase in energy costs, is no coincidence.

Whether we like it or not, there is too much demand on the remaining oil and gas supplies and the world’s governments are now all too aware of that. (more…)

PV solar panels are just common sense

“Why PV solar panels are just common sense? There are some things in life which are just common sense.”

The application of sunscreen, for example, so you don’t burn in the sun, wrapping up warm on cold winter mornings and wearing waterproof shoes when it’s raining. These are all common sense precautions.

PV solar panels are just common sense in today's world.

PV solar panels are just common sense in today’s world.

The latest common sense approach to modern life is to install PV solar panels to protect your family from undependable and increasingly expensive fossil fuels.

The world has changed dramatically over the last few years, and the era of cheap, plentiful energy is now a distant memory for us all. (more…)

We love our PV solar panels

“In a nutshell, I describe our PV solar installation to friends and family as being “good for the planet” because it is “renewable energy generation with a zero carbon footprint.”

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.

We all know that human civilisation is depleting the planet of natural resources (fossil fuels and minerals) and in doing so is dangerously polluting the atmosphere with greenhouse gases causing a climate warming. Governments around the world are aware of the problems this will cause and the potential breakdown of business, as usual, .

It is, therefore, our duty as informed citizens to help mitigate effects. Individually, we can do only a little, but if many people contribute to the total impact will be significant. (more…)

“An uncertain world has made investing in stocks and shares a risky business and also the reason you are getting such a low rate of return on your savings (0.1– 4.0%)”

PV solar panels are a great investment opportunity

PV solar panels are a great investment opportunity

Right now, but there is a way to get upwards of 8-10% rate of return on your money with PV solar panels.

Yes, you did read correctly! PV solar panel installations are very popular right now, for one big reason.

People are re-investing their low return savings funds into higher gain solar panel installations to make more money, the concept of which, before the credit crunch, would have been laughable, but the world is changing and changing fast. (more…)

“If you are reading this, you are fortunate. You could live in one of the many thousands of homes which could benefit from a window of opportunity called the feed-in tariff scheme for solar panels.”

Join the PV solar panels revolution.

Join the PV solar panels revolution.

Introduced in April 2010, the scheme was designed to kick-start the solar panels industry in the UK within the domestic and commercial sectors.

The feed-in tariffs are divided into two sections and are known as the ‘Clean Energy Cash Back Scheme’ for PV (photovoltaic) solar panel technology and the ‘Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme’ for the solar heating panels and heat pump technology. (more…)

The power of the sun created this rich and beautiful biodiversity of life which we see around us today.

Simple chemical reactions have transformed the atmosphere of our planet, with its diverse plant life, into the oxygen-rich air that we breathe today.

Just like the essential photosynthesising plants on Earth, modern-day solar panels have developed into a higher-efficiency technology that we now install onto homes and businesses throughout the world. (more…)

Passionate about PV solar panels

The financial benefits of installing PV solar panel technology in homes and commercial premises across the United Kingdom are currently the primary appeal to many when considering this home improvement investment.

Only around 10% of customers are installing for environmental reasons, with the rest installing because of rising energy costs.

Most people look at PV solar panels at a domestic level because they are only getting two or three percent interest on an average ISA or a bank savings account. (more…)
