It's very difficult to find an average energy price because there are so many different factors involved such as: your type of home, where it is, your price tariff, and your energy usage. One thing that is easy to see though, is that energy prices are rising.
We have seen a massive spike in energy prices in recent months, but don't be fooled into thinking that means that prices weren't already slowly rising before this. In 2012 the price of electricity per KwH was 14.5p, this rose to 16.5p in 2017, and that trend was starting to rise more steeply. The recent skyrocket in prices is down to a number of actors, the end result of which was 54% increase in household energy bills in April 2022 price cap, but had it followed the trend it would have been around 22p, which is a higher average increase than we were previously seeing.
A solar system isn't just something that will help you today. Our solar systems are guaranteed for 25 years, giving you the peace of mind that you aren't just looking short term, you're making an investment in your savings.
Solar-Techs customers are able to save up to an incredible 70% off their bills, and with current energy prices being so high, and the industry trend suggesting that energy bills will continue to rise, a solar and battery system is the perfect way to future proof your savings since the more the price of energy rises, the more money you save.
Not only can you lower your bills through investing in a solar and battery system, thanks to the Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) you could even make money through your solar system. The SEG means that energy companies are required to buy back any excess energy that you might generate. With some suppliers offering prices from 7.5p to 10.5p per KwH of energy they buy, you could be making money for nothing.
Solar-Tech have helped our customers save up to an incredible 70% off their energy bills each month. Even if you don't save quite that much per month, the more energy prices continue to rise, the more savings you will make.
Yes, in all likelihood, even with a solar panel and storage battery system installed, you will still potentially have to use energy from the grid; however you should be paying for significantly less.
Your battery works by storing energy generated from your solar panels when the energy is not in use elsewhere in you elsewhere in your home. This means you can use the stored energy during non-daylight hours, saving you more money as you are not taking it from the national grid.
