How does the Energy Price Guarantee affect you?

The Government launched an Energy Price Guarantee initiative to support households with rising energy costs that are currently storming across Europe. Households, however, will still be paying around 2 times more than they did last winter.

How will this affect you?

Simply put, from October 1st, 2022, you will be paying more for your energy. You can speak with your energy provider to determine precisely how much your costs will rise. Last winter the average home during winter was paying £1,277, now they will be paying £2,500. You should be made aware that this does not mean you will pay a maximum amount of £2,500. If you use more, you will pay more.

What can you do to protect yourself against the price increase and potential future increases?

You can go green and start generating energy for your home, directly from your roof. Installing a sonnenBatterie and a photovoltaic (PV) system, you can protect yourself against the price increase today and future price increases as uncertainty looms across the energy market.

Combining solar panels and a battery storage system you can generate, consume, and store energy, while simultaneously decreasing your reliance on the national grid. By complementing a solar with a residential storage system, you maximise your home energy system and increase your self-consumption by up to 75%.

Now is the best time to go green and to protect yourself from future price increases. If you are interested in speaking to one of our Platinum Partners in your area, click here to complete the form.
