Battery Storage

Boost your savings whilst reducing your energy bills.

Battery storage systems allow you to capture electricity when it is readily available, typically from a solar PV system, and save it until a time when it is useful to you. For example, your solar PV system will generate electricity during the day when you’re out at work, and this can be stored in your electricity battery for you to use in the evening.

What are the benefits of battery storage?

If your home is connected to the grid, a battery will help you make the most of your renewable electricity, meaning your electricity bills will be cheaper and your carbon emissions will be lower. In an off-grid home, battery storage can reduce your reliance on an alternative fossil fuel electricity generator.

  • Utilise more of the renewable energy you generate through your solar panels instead of feeding the excess energy back to the national grid.
  • Be less reliant on energy suppliers and having to buy back electricity during peak periods.
  • Battery storage can be retrofitted to existing solar systems and expanded to accommodate increased electricity generation.

Feed-in Tariff payments and energy storage…

Feed-in Tariffs (FITs) payments are calculated on the basis that 50% of the electricity you generate is exported back to the grid. Even if you store spare electricity you generate, export payments will still be calculated on this 50% basis. This may change as the UK Government are looking to base FITs export payments on actual meter readings after the smart meter roll-out.

If you store energy, you’ll still currently get your Feed-in Tariffs export payments for eligible solar PV systems, even if you’re exporting less electricity back to the grid.
