QUEEN’S Award winning climate change charity, Nottingham Energy Partnership (NEP) is looking for 35 households with existing solar panels in Thurrock to house battery storage technology. This exciting project works on a first come first serve basis so interested households must act quickly.
This ground breaking technology will allow families to use 30% more of their free, clean electricity in the evenings, allowing them to power kitchen appliances, lights and the television at little or no cost.
NEP successfully secured funding from the Warm and Healthy Homes Fund to finance this project. It is part of a Â£26.2 million pound innovative UK-wide programme, designed and administered by National Energy Action, www.nea.org.uk.
Phil Angus, Nottingham Energy Partnership Manager urges people to sign up ‘Without energy storage, on average, households only get to use around 30% of the energy they generate, now with battery storage they will be able to utilise up to 60%. These are fully funded systems so it really is a win win for the household. Each system would normally cost in the region of Â£4,000’.
With less reliance on the grid households can expect to use up to 30% more of their generated electricity. 250 battery storage systems are already in situ in domestic homes across the country so this is a tried and tested technology.

Unobtrusive monitoring will help DECC (Department of Energy and Climate Change) to steer future energy strategies. With little or no subsidies in domestic renewable systems, battery storage is the next big thing and this project will help to bring its need to the forefront.
All systems must be installed by the end of June 2016.
