Solar PV Or Whatever Renewable Energy source was always going to and will still require a subsidy based system in place to allow it to grow and take roots in order to ultimately have a chance of competing against fossil fuels and the nuclear power which we currently rely so heavily upon. I don’t believe that anyone who actively entered into the industry either as an investor, customer, business owner or installer thought that the initial subsidies were sustainable or indeed good for the industry in the long run but without them the industry would not be where it is today! However, many individuals built their UK business models around subsidy guidelines in the form of the feed in tariff system that were changed radically by the government and caused many to go out of business and made unemployed many of the workers who were drawn into the industry. This is all fact! After reviewing the Energy industry as a whole, the Economy and how best to integrate Renewable forms of generation into the domain for the greater good of all i put together the design for a system which will result in “Grid Cost Parity” for renewables and that will not require a subsidy system to work. If you are truly an enthusiast of finding and supporting a way to make the world a better place then please visit my website http://www.solar-panel-installs.com and follow the tab to the Patent Application which has all the details of the design which is now at the publication stage with the Intellectual Property Office in the UK. In brief, The conceptual background to this patent application is based on the benefits associated with the practice of sharecropping embedded within a competitive marketplace by directly attaching the rights and distribution to the output of the crop (In this case Renewable Energy Electricity, farmed on a large scale basis) directly back to the owning individuals within defined limits for his own personal useage and therefore outside of the monetary and taxation system. This financial approach being in line with the Governments current policy with regard to the benefits obtainable from the current feed in tarrif system for domestic installations. Full details of this application and other articles which i have written on the subject, including “Why and How the Government and the Energy Companies Sacrificed thousands of Jobs in the Solar PV Industry” are also open for discussion on my Solar blog page. I truly believe the way forward is to keep installing but the Green deal is just another load of Green Spin Policy and should just be thrown in the bin!
