Move to Renewable Energy

Solar Panels

Make the move to using energy from sources that don't produce carbon emissions.

  • Buy energy from a renewables tariff - it can be cheaper.

  • Consider a tariff with off-peak periods and shift your energy use.

    • The proportion of energy generated from renewable is usually higher during off-peak periods.

    • Many appliances can be timed.​

    • Charge an  EV during off-peak.

    • Home batteries can be charged during off-peak.

  • Change your heating system to one that uses renewable energy.

    • Probably a heat pump or electric heating.​

    • But insulate your property first.

  • Install solar panels - if your property is suitable.​

Off-peak tariffs and time shifting

Many suppliers offer tariffs with a lower-cost, off-peak period, although the day-time cost is often higher than a flat-rate tariff. As well as reducing costs, you will usually reduce the net carbon emissions you create if you time-shift your electricity usage into an off-peak period. This is because, on average, renewables contribute a larger proportion of energy generation during off-peak periods.

  • Use the timers on home appliances, such as dishwashers and washing machines. Tumble driers (except for heat-pump ones) can be a fire risk, so it may be best not to use them at night.

  • Electric Vehicles can be charge overnight, using the car's timer or one in your charge point.

  • Home batteries, with or without solar panels, can be charged off-peak and used to provide power during the day.
