Petrol and diesel prices have already risen 5p a litre in just the last week alone, this is going to hike it up even further.
Gas and electricity prices have only just rised 10% a month or so ago, and now with the engineered devaluation of the £, reduction in domestic
generation meaning we will be at the mercy of foreign energy suppliers who can charge what they want.
Which means more thousands of pensioners will die every year due to energy poverty.
Solar technologies are not the be all and end all for energy in the UK, but they can make a significant difference to people who are suffering energy
If 30% or 40% of a household's energy is generated using a rood or walls clad in solar panels, this would make the difference, literally, between
life or death for tens of thousands of people.
But where is the Government drive to secure massive orders of solar tech, huge buying would bring the costs down to pennies per Watt, there are Solar
energy maufacturing companies going bust all over Europe, so there's no shortage of companies that would be fighting over themselves to get the
manufacturing and installation contracts.
What about Solar on a roll, very cheap alternative to riged panels..printed like a newspaper is, on a continuous roll, using energy producing inks and
dyes. Not quite as efficient as traditional panels, but in terms of cost per Watt, is cheap enough to be used as wall cladding.
Then there was another system that have developed a paint that could produce electricity like a solar panel, effectively turning an entire building
into a huge solar panel.
Or windows that doubled up as solar panels.
There was also a Uni student who developed inks that could be used in a normal domestic ink jet printer, so anyone could print there own solar panels
onto flexible plastic sheets, very cheaply.
The government keeps going on about climate this and that, alternative energy this and that, and closes power stations due to environmental concerns,
WHY then are the Government not chasing all of these solar technologies like a dog chasing a bitch in heat?
