Please scroll down for lots of useful information. There are links to industry and environmental journals, relevant dates in the environmental and renewable energy calendar, current debates, a solar PV Feed-in Tariff calculator, green products websites, campaign groups and more. Some of this might be a bit outdated given time considerations and the fact that I don't get paid for doing this, but I do try and keep it as fresh and new as I can so it's still worth checking out.

What are CIGS solar pv panels?



Basically CIGS is a kind of thin film solar PV panel. At first they weren't that popular compared to ordinary monocrystalline and polycrystalline panels, but a Germany company has recently improved the efficiency to around 20 percent and now they are starting to take off, especially considering that an American company has improved the design so that they are now taking the form of tubular based PV that can be mounted on any roof regardless of orientation.

  1. I am happy with the solar capture of our PV roof this month, the weather has been good. But one has this slight suspicion that it is not as good as when the panels were new.
