Long time, not able to up date my Blog, but after 2 years we are back in the solar water heating business.

Haveing established the assembly of my speedflex solar thermal plumbing pipe kits for the 4th and last time through an investor/partner in Hangzhou, China, I then asked my new partner to invest in my self assembly solar thermal absorber, that converts a PV panel into PVT.
This is now completed with the first 4 panels being shipped to Davos in Switzerland for testing, but first to be installed to melt the snow, before the real job of genarating electricty can begin, as well as heating the water as the panel gets hot from the sun.
I am also busy in developing sales in LED lighting, now both the cost and quality has reached the levels, that are attractive to buyers, with 5 watt globe bulbs from $1.00, LED direct replacement tubes from $7.00 and replacement HP sodium bulbs for LED Corn bulbs from $28.00 saving countries 70% in energy costs just in lighting

Light up Africa is my new charity foundation, starting in Ghana, with the ONOSO PROJECT (
I travel to Ghana on the 27th July 2014 and will stay in Accra for 4 days before traveling on to Lagos, Nigeria. After 4 days of business in Lagos with my Nigerian partners, I fly to Cameroon to meet the lady mayor of the Capital with her husband
All 3 countries along with Kenya, I have partnered with people, do not have guaranteed electricity supplies.
On my return to Ghana on the 16th August, I will spend 10 days in the Village of AGONA to valuate there needs for lighting and power for the Bamboo Bike work shop.
using my 25 years in solar system designs, manufacture, installations and sales, I plan to start by providing solar LED lighting in the schools to start with, followed by street lighting.

I am seeking sponsors and donations in exchange for my experience and knowledge gained over 50 years of working for myself
Please contact me at

I will be posting pictures on this and my thermaltricity web site when that is up and running

Thank You

To encourage home and business owners to look first towards investing in what is very simple and low cost in China, is a very complicated and over engineered high cost in the UK and USA.

As a solar water heating systems designer of 25 years, those not wanting BIG brand named products, which is why we have today a 4 person home system costing £4.500 installed (supplied by the STA)
It seems that unless there is a return on investment within a short time, useing the suns tax free energy is not an incentive to invest £4,500, which I also agree.
When I started to promote and sell my own SWH system kits, it was to use where possible the existing hot water tank, unless the tank needed to be replaced as was old and leaked heat through the insulation.
My simple Thermix valve, that was inserted into the top of the cylinder allowed the solar heated water into the bottom of the tank and hot water out of the top, with no worries like today of stagnation, freezeing and servicing all the pressurized parts of the unvented / closed loop system

Our planned new lower cost prices, based on me able to find an importer to import 80% of the parts from Israel and China will bring back my under £1,000 system kit cost.
The Hot Water Tank should never be included in ROI, as the boiler isnt, the rest of the appliances in the house are not, so why has the hot water tank.
The introduction or the Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme (RHI) in April 2014 opens up new oppotunties to offer the home owner a choice:

1. Except the current system of going through a green deal assesment to check your level of insulation is up to latest standard, before you can apply for a SWH system under RHI
2. Through the payment of £4,500 installed, you are paid back £2,345.00 over 7 years, tax free
3. This reduces your £4,500 investment to £2,155.00 with an estimated £990.00 of service costs over the life of the system.
The 2nd choice is our system sold and installed outside any of the governments interference and red tape, costing £2,000 installed including the choice of 2 flat plate panels, or evacuated tube heat pipe, with a choice of a solar powered DC or AC pump, all the parts to connect this kit into an excisting cylinder.
The SWH system kit through our selected group buyers/seller with years of experiance in this business is £1,000, with £800.00 for the installer team and 5% vat on completion

Can anybody reading this, tell me why anybody should take up the RHI through the green deal, when all they want is part of the hot water heating TAX FREE from the sun??

Thankyou for your time

haveing returned to the UK in early September 2013 after almost 6 months spent between China and the USA, I am excited to at last see on the daily TV news and in news papers of the pending power cuts from 2015 due to the closure of old power stations and the slower building of new ones, including Nuclear.
The UK I use as a test base for everything, even though the USA has a much more positive market for solar water heating than the UK.
At this time, I am bringing together a group of like minded people, some known to me over 30 years ago and all of them involved in renewable energy sales.

The overall plan, now that Solar Speedflex China has sales into the USA through Falcon Stainless in LA, continued and growing exports of stainless steel heat exchangers into Sth Africa to SIRAC Heat Pump suppliers, its now the time for me to re start exports of a wide range of energy saving products and SWH systems to be offered at 50% less than is offered today.

The almost total fall in solar water heating system sales can be put down to the Interference by this government in the solar power market in 2009/10, when they offered through the Utilities a £0.43p per kWh payment tax free for 25 years and index linked.
This created a short boom and in the past 2 .5 years has also killed off most of the more efficent energy saving technologies.
For me and my wife, I invested in everything that would keep my home running costs down, from rain water harvesting, direct solar water heating to indirect and a thermal store, + solar PV on my back shed roof to the front of the house with a micro turbine.
Now we have changed all light buklbs to LED and switched from a electric kettle to a gas hob one, leaving just the old gas boiler of 12 years to be changed to a condensing type as the heat pump in the loft space is only used as a back up in summer to the solar thermal systems.
Over these past 12 years, no service costs have been required except for two pipe gaskot changes,
We have no need of freeze protection as our home system is open loop and none pressure.
The people of this country and the USA, need to wake up and look beyond short term Government incentives as in the end we will pay through something, as nothing is free today.
