Re: Recommendations for Photovoltaic system.

I intend to just use the Heat Pump for underfloor heating and have a stand alone hot water tank ,which will be smaller than existing.... My favourite solar hot water system is still very little known in Cyprus. The only thing one can see on the roof are 3 photo-voltaic modules, producing the electr...

Re: Recommendations for Photovoltaic system.

you should also think about the future and perhaps heat your house with electricity instead of gas/diesel with an electric air to water heat pump from your own electricity produced from the sun. (Big business in Germany now !!!) Max I'm wondering whether for heating purposes thermic solar panels ( ...

Re: Recommendations for Photovoltaic system.

In my opinion it is most important that your installer of PV is not only using the newest technology and the technicians are experts what they are doing. To look only the cheapest price is perhaps not the best and as it is a long term investment to produce your electricity for the next decades also ...

Re: From Dora to Trozena in 4k!

As nobody replied to your question: I quite like the fact that one can see much more than only the road in front of you and a bit on the sides. However it is difficult and a bit disturbing when the foreground moves too fast in front of your eyes when using the sideways mounted camera. I did not play...

Re: Mainly fine in the morning on Wednesday, isolated afternoon showers - it's the Max Factor.

No sign of rain on my forecast until later on Saturday, and then a chance of rain all day on Sunday I am quite glad that not only my forecast last Wednesday was wrong, but also the forecasts from other members on Saturday and Sunday. No any rain or thunderstorms like predicted. Specially on Saturda...

Re: Max fish pics

Max have you gone off fish? used to enjoy seeing your weekly visits to the fish taverna, we had a great fish meze in Larnaca, Saturday night. No, I am not gone off fish. As I don't like meat too much (except some Italian cold cuts and Nuremberg sausages), I eat mainly fish (3-4 times week). I enjoy...

Re: Consumers should brace for much higher prices in basic goods this Christmas

I made a post about 6 months ago (but now can't find) pointing out that huge inflationary price increases were about to slam the world. In the past 6 months we have had two manufacturer price increase on one main product line, a 13% increase on another, and on our main product we are warned that ou...

Very simple explained: in Germany are already 54 GW installiert ( 2 million solar installations), producing more than 53 TWH which is 10% of the total German electricity production.

Re: Electric cars

That certainly sounds like a better system Hybrid self charging e-cars are the only way in Cyprus at present as there are only a few charging stations available. However you can charge them at home.
