The future of energy is storage

Are you future proofing your home or business?

Since the launch of the Feed In Tariff Scheme, the Solar PV Industry has boomed. The main driver of this was the quick and long term financial investment offered by the scheme. Unfortunately the FIT Scheme comes to an end in March 2019 . . . but not all is lost. 

With quarterly reviews, reductions in the tariffs and the inevitable demise of all tariffs, materials and installation costs have also reduced dramatically. In addition to these reductions, the wholesale costs of electricity have soared with an average annual increase of over 6%. This has made it more important than ever for businesses and homeowners to become more self sufficient and sustainable. 

How does it work?

Solar panels take energy from the sun and convert it into electricity. This electricity is connected to your existing supply meaning that it becomes available for consumption in your property. If the generated electricity isn't used instantly it exports to the grid. If the generated electricity is being used and more is required you will import the rest from the grid as normal. You will always use the generated electricity before importing from the grid.

This leads to really significant savings on your bills. 

A standard installation does not have the capacity to store generated electricity. That's where Battery Storage can be added to maximise self-consumption of the free generated electricity.

Are Batteries worth it?

Quick answer . . . ABSOLUTELY!!!

Battery technology is advancing so rapidly. If you are a really high consumer of electricity and are subject to TRIAD and TNUoS charges, it's not even necessary to have Solar PV Installed. We work with companies that use large containerised battery systems to import and store electricity at off-peak times and release it at peak times. This helps them purchase cheap electricity and therefore save money on bills, but also minimise charges for peak time consumption.

How much storage and whether to have it at all completely depends on circumstance. Some customers want to maximise their Solar PV capacity, others just want enough to make a dint in their bills. Using our Power Mapping service, we can as accurately as is possible, estimate the optimum level of PV and Storage required for an installation giving our customers a bespoke designed system that fits their needs.
