New era, old tech...

When the Tariff finally went, an opportunity was created for another product to generate the benefits to the customer.

The Battery

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.

Exclusive to Social Energy

5 ways to earn & save

With a social energy battery system, you unlock 5 ways to make the most out of your solar generation.

S

Self Consumption [Value Level: High]

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.

T

Trading [Value Level: Medium]

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.

A

Avoid Network Charges [Value Level: Medium]

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.

G

Grid Balancing [Value Level: High]

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.

E

Export [Value Level: Low]

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!
