The energy efficiency homes

Living off the grid

Energy efficient homes are very common today. I am going to list some things which every home owner should implement to keep his house as warm or cool as possible depending on the season

  1. install double glazing windows
  2. underfloor heating
  3. wall and roof insulation
  4. install an awning to protect you apertures from direct sunlight
  5. install a++ efficient appliances
  6. buy inverter air conditioning
  7. install led lighting


These are the most common mistakes that home owners do. Do not overlook these simple things if you really want to live of the grid.

In the coming weeks we will be talking about the advantages of having photovoltaic panels installed on your roof. Cheers!

Energy news from africa

How is Africa doing in terms of renewable energy?

We all follow the news and agree that there are so many rural places in africa without electricity. The government can really take the initiative and start working on a sustainable renewable energy plan for the future of africa.

Without a plan, Africa cannot grow, evolve, prosper and move forward with the rest of the world. Why not invest in solar panels? Africa is very fortunate to get so much sun that its undeniably beneficial to this and the next generation to come.

The island of Malta is doing something very very similar. The government has launched a rebate scheme where you get about €2300 in refunds on your first solar panel purchase. This is awesome news considering that they have to abide by European law. The leading solar panel installer in Malta Renergy Limited  have really taken this news as a breath of fresh air, their sales have increased by 70% the last few weeks.

“Its a really great investment decision” stated the director of Renergy
