If things weren't bad enough, these solar panels started to appear outside Camping Albufeira about 3 weeks ago. Doesn't anyone here ever think things through? Predictable, not even half way through the job, work stopped, site cleared and everything left to blot the landscape.

And it's built where hundreds of cars that can't get onto the campsite park in August. Where are they going to put them I wonder?

Here's the answer - underneath them. They are now nothing more than giant sunshades. Picture taken yesterday.

Well that strikes me as a great idea, shade for the cars with the roof being solar panels, great idea, all they need do is start harvesting from the panels!

Beats me why there isn't more of the PV panels (electricity producing) and more domestic wind turbines around. The two things in abundance on the Algarve is Sun and wind !

There are masses of wind turbines around Lagos and in the hills above Silves.

Myself and the only other permanent resident in our little block would love solar panels on the roof, but it needs the agreement of the other owners and that will never happen.

"There are masses of wind turbines around Lagos and in the hills above Silves."

I have seen these Tom but I am referring to the little domestic ones for Residential properties. I would love them myself, (PV panels and domestic wind turbine) even in the UK but the various Governments make it difficult to purchase by reducing incentives, yet at the same time spending billions on massive offshore wind farms !  Confused

Oh, right. I have seen the odd one or two around but I will bet that there are licence fees and all sorts of bureaucracy that put people off.
