Getting cold feet again?We all know the humid Portuguese winters; outside it can be warmer than inside your house. But why do you keep sponsoring EDP? Surely it's better to get to be independent and self supporting !!

sugarWith the approach of Christmas comes the prospect of feasting on roast turkey and traditional Portuguese favourites such as marzipan cakes and bolo del rei. Sadly, not for everyone.

There are many people in cities, towns and villages across this country living in poverty, dependent on handouts from food banks and soup kitchens. The full extent of the problem is unclear, but it was probably greater this year than last and it may be worse again in 2015.

Would you like to know where all the EDP money is going ??EDP prices are only going up, everybody knows that. Price increasing over the last years will come as no surprise. But do you know how much increase ?

SHS Solar Solutions has analyzed the Electricity price level from 2007 until 2014.... the results are staggering!

Save on your energy billSave the Planet and your Wallet at the same time would be great with our without an economic crisis. With 320 days of sunshine Algarve is, and will always be, by far the best climate in Europe.

So why do we see so little PV Solar installations ? The answer is simple: Human Greed !!

What does your Hot Water cost you ?Many people use Solar Water Systems. So are they saving you money ?

Most of these systems have a 300ltr tank, often outside on the roof. And they don’t come cheap, they can cost €2.500 to even €4.000 !
We think the Sun will heat the water, and its free...but there can be a catch: the Hot Water Solar systems need the Heat of the sun, unlike PV panels which only need the Light !
