As a result of the Donald Trump Presidential victory this week, many in the Renewable Energy industry are worried about the likely changes coming to their business, and rightfully so. A divided America has elected a Climate Change Denier who believes all the scientists are wrong, that Human activity is not a cause, and that it is all a Chinese hoax to undermine US manufacturing.

How To Estimate Solar Heating Savings

By | 2016-05-05T12:06:02+00:00 May 5th, 2016|Home Heating, Solar Heating, Affordable Solar|Comments Off on How To Estimate Solar Heating Savings

In a perfect world, if you were buying a new solar heating system you could look on the manufacturer's website and read: "Solar heating savings: our system will save you $500 per year and pay for itself after 6 years." Of course, things aren't that simple. This is because figuring out how much a new heating system will save you compared to your old system mostly depends on [...]

Five Advantages of Solar Heat Pumps

By | 2016-05-04T12:16:50+00:00 May 4th, 2016|Heat Pump, Home Heating, Solar Heating|Comments Off on Five Advantages of Solar Heat Pumps

Solar heat pumps are high-efficiency home heating systems that have left energy enthusiasts dumbfounded that nobody invented them sooner. Solar heat pumps combine two proven technologies together (solar thermal panels and a heat pump), creating a home heating system greater than the sum of its parts. Most people are familiar with solar thermal panels (they capture heat from the sun for space or hot water heating), and even if you've never [...]

For homeowners, businesses, contractors and builders, it's an exciting time to be involved with solar heating. Solar hybrids have changed the game when it comes to home heating, offering homeowners a clean, efficient and cost-effective heating system. But things haven't always been this way for solar heating. It's not so long ago that solar heating was highly expensive, with home heating systems taking years (even decades) [...]

3 Ways Solar Thermal Heating Makes Money

By | 2016-04-18T12:21:03+00:00 April 18th, 2016|Home Heating, Solar Heating|Comments Off on 3 Ways Solar Thermal Heating Makes Money

Saving the environment one rooftop solar panel at a time sounds great, but really homeowners are just as concerned with how their renewable energy system will save or make them money (or both!). Solar energy - both solar PV for electricity and solar thermal heating - make for great ways to achieve both of these goals, offering homeowners excellent financial incentives and rewards while helping the environment. Installing solar thermal [...]

It's always interesting to see not only how, but why businesses go green or make the move towards solar and other renewable energy sources. If the business in question is a construction company, the transition becomes even more interesting and important, because a construction company's decision to be more conscious of the environment has the potential to have a huge impact on the homes they build, and [...]

Whether you are a D.I.Y. genius or someone tends to hire a whole team of construction workers to do the work for you, when building a home there are a lot of decisions that need to be made. You're likely to have a strict budget and short timeframe for getting everything finished. And yet somehow, even when you thoroughly plan for every eventuality, obstacles and challenges will still spring [...]

A Brief History of Solar Thermal Heating

By | 2016-04-07T12:10:51+00:00 April 7th, 2016|Home Heating, Solar Heating|Comments Off on A Brief History of Solar Thermal Heating

Today I will be taking a look back through history to look at the origins, development and current state of affairs of solar thermal heating technology. History is somewhat of a passion of mine - there is just so much to be gained from examining the past - so I was very excited to write about this topic. However, when doing research online, I found that there [...]

Why Solar Is Beating Oil And Gas

By | 2016-04-06T13:16:37+00:00 April 6th, 2016|Solar, Clean Tech, Solar Heating|Comments Off on Why Solar Is Beating Oil And Gas

Over the last number of years, the price of oil and gas has dropped steadily worldwide. From the perspective of solar and renewable energy, the easy assumption to make here is that cheaper fossil fuel prices would harm the development of solar power. Yet this has not been the case. Investment in solar and other renewable energy sources has never been higher, and more solar [...]

Here in British Columbia, greenhouse gas (GHG) and carbon emissions are taken quite seriously. As we have written about in the past, Vancouver aims to be the greenest city in the world by 2020 and use 100% renewable energy by 2050. Recently, a group of 140 B.C. businesses came together to argue in favour of raising B.C.'s carbon tax. The proposed increase (up $10 per tonne [...]

When I started writing this morning, my intention was to present a slightly more technical, close-up look at what solar PV and solar thermal systems are and how they function. The idea was to split solar down the middle, to give a description of solar PV and solar thermal and finish with a section describing how the SunPump fits in and what it offers. However, after [...]
