When the Tariff finally went, an opportunity was created for another product to generate the benefits to the customer.
The concept is simple, much like a rechargeable battery you’d use around your home, the battery stores energy and can discharge it when you need it. It adds some value, to increase the benefit of having a new solar installation.

Everything nowadays is ‘smart’. We have smartphones, smart homes, smart watches and even smart fridges.
Now solar technology is joining the smart revolution. With a smart battery system from Social Energy, you benefit from 5 revenue streams, as opposed to the 2 delivered with a standard battery.
Upto £25,000 extra
We make things fully autonomous, so you needn’t worry about what your energy is doing. But if you want to see, you can get everything in one place.
In our simple app, Social Energy customers can access their smart energy account. From monitoring your energy trading, through to seeing your direct debit for your energy bill, all of your energy is just a tap away.
Plus, you can see the difference that you’re making to the environment, both historically and in realtime.
215.9kWh - Solar generation

2.6 trees - Planted to achieve the same carbon offset
With a social energy battery system, you unlock 5 ways to make the most out of your solar generation.
Once your home is generating free solar energy, you want to be using as much of that energy in your home as possible, reducing your paid import from the grid. Your battery will store excess solar for you to use later on in the day.
Wholesale energy markets work a lot like stock markets, with prices fluctuating massively, from negative pricing up to thousands of pounds per wholesale unit! We automatically buy cheap or free energy, store it in your battery and sell it back to the grid, when it’s most expensive.
Much like the train network, the energy network in the UK has busy and quiet times of the day. To encourage usage in quieter times, networks charge lower ‘off-peak’ costs to use energy when many others aren’t. Our AI automatically ensures you’re buying off-peak energy, so that you can avoid paying peak network prices, normally built into your bill.
The National Grid needs to constantly stay at a balanced frequency, otherwise we can end up with blackouts across the country. Social Energy batteries are the only domestic systems qualified to help balance grid, a valuable service, which you get paid to do.
Our systems help to minimise your export, as we can create bigger earnings and savings through trading for you. This means you end up exporting less than a typical customer with a low-tech battery. But when you do export, we pay the best export tariff in the industry!
