Earn Money from Sun Spirit Solar Panels

     Posted on Fri ,11/01/2013 by Jonathan Porter

If there are two messages that are being given loud and clear these days, it is that everyone is feeling the pinch from the economic crisis and it is vital that people do everything they can to lower their carbon footprint. Sun Spirit, with a little help from a government scheme, miraculously addresses both of these problems simultaneously.

What is Sun Spirit?

Sun Spirit is a company which is expert in the design and installation of the latest Solar PV Systems. The Photovoltaic (PV) systems are designed to capture light from the sun with solar panels and convert it into electricity. The specialist team at Sun Spirit do not work alone to produce these highly efficient, green money savers. Scientists at Oxford University work with the renewable energy company to enable them to keep in touch with any new developments or breakthroughs in the industry. Going forward, Sun Spirit hopes to use this wealth of knowledge and expertise to continue to develop and improve on existing systems for the foreseeable future.

The team at Sun Spirit are passionate about changing the way people think about energy and the environment. Their promise is to show people how they can change the world with the simple installation of a PV system.

How to earn money with the PV system

In 2010, the government launched a cash back scheme for those who used renewable energy sources for heat and electric.

The Feed-In Tariff (FIT) sees people who generate power from renewable sources being paid from their energy suppliers per kWh generated. People are able to use any or all of this energy generated for personal or business use and any which is surplus will feed back in to the grid.

With the PV systems, payments are made by the energy companies to those who are eligible, for 25 years. Some customers who have had Sun Spirit PV systems installed have received a 22% return in the first year, even better than Sun Spirit had quoted.

Many people who know about FIT will also realise that free solar panels can be applied for and obtained from other companies. It should be pointed out though that these companies which offer free solar panels keep all the money earned from FIT for themselves. Over 25 years, that is a lot of money for people to earn themselves, and give away.

The Vermont Hotel Newcastle

     Posted on Mon ,05/11/2012 by Jonathan Porter

The new Vermont website will help position The Vermont among the cream of top hotels in Newcastle

Anticipation is building around what the new Vermont Hotel will look like after the refurb which is underway. Livello, the former Martha’s bar linked to the Hotel has recently been relaunched with a fanfare and is becoming the place to be for aftershow parties in Newcastle, but I’ll post about that when we’ve finished the website. For now I wanted to talk about the Vermont, an impressive hotel with a fabulous feel and of course a recently revamped website.

I love what the team did on this project, we did some of the photography as well as the web design, but its all about how the photos were used. Large images can slow things down on the Internet, but it really works on this and I think we shall see more of this style emerging in the coming months. The large photos were chosen for maximum visual impact yet without affecting the user experience too much, and they do communicate what the place is like. All of this in the context of a PyroCMS powered website for total ease of use too.

Click here to view the new website for the Vermont, the only independent 4 star hotel in Newcastle.

I also recommend visiting The Vermont Hotel Google+ page to see reviews from people who have stayed in the luxury Newcastle Hotel.

Why Buying the Right Gift Is So Difficult

     Posted on Wed ,08/08/2012 by Jonathan Porter

These days buying gifts can be really difficult. Many of us spend hours shopping, trying to find a gift that will actually mean something to the recipient. Unfortunately, more often than not that perfect gift remains elusive. A good gift is one which will be remembered and treasured. Practical gifts, such as salad spinners, while useful are not often remembered ten years later.

One of the issues with buying quality gifts is that they are often too expensive and out of most people’s price ranges. We have all experienced that rush of excitement when we spot what we think would be an ideal gift and then the disappointment when we see the price tag. The challenge for gift buyers is finding a quality gift which is affordable while not being tacky.

Purchasing gifts online can be a great way to save time and money. Searching the web takes substantially less energy than walking around a shopping centre or running up and down city shopping strips. However, online gift shopping also has its problems. For one, the market is flooded with thousands of websites claiming to sell quality goods; you as a consumer have no way of knowing where to start. Also once you have purchased something online you have no way of knowing if what you have bought is a quality product until you actually receive it in the mail, and by that stage it’s often too late.

Think Gifts offer a wide range of gifts, all of which are of the highest quality so buyers will be able to find the right gift no matter who they are buying for. Gifts available, such as the Shamballa style bracelet, are unique and stylish so are sure to be remembered and treasured by the recipient.

Medical Conferences

     Posted on Thu ,19/07/2012 by Jonathan Porter

For any doctors, medical practitioners or anyone in any field of medicine that wants an easier and simpler way of keeping track of global medical conferences, The Conference Website is a great help. It offers a quick, easy and free way of being organised when it comes to the latest courses and conferences that are available around the world. By using an alert system you can be emailed, at a frequency that suits you, so you never miss an important date for a conference.

The site also incorporates Google Maps so you can see and find your way to the conferences easily. In today’s age of being ultra-busy all of the time, there is bound to be times when medical conferences go missed. However, as you can sign up, for free, to The Conference Website this is all in the past. Now you can download the iPhone app and get alerts to your phone while you’re on the move and stay in touch with what’s happening around the globe.

When you sign up on the site, you are asked just to input your name, email address and field of speciality. This means you can keep tabs on just your area of expertise of medical conferences that are going on. If you want to host a conference then you can simply add a new venue to the conference section and for those other doctors that are registered to the site they will be alerted when your medical conference is taking place.

This, as you can see, is a great way to never miss an important event and to make sure that other practitioners never miss your medical conferences and courses that you are attending or taking part in.
