As a home-owner, you will know that rising energy costs are a growing burden. You may be aware that the transition away from fossil fuels and towards renewable energy is gaining momentum. You may be wondering how you can get on board and switch to cleaner, greener power in your own home. You’re in the right place.
UK homes today have more appliances than ever before. But this modern comfort comes at a price. Living in a digital world means we are more dependent on power-hungry gadgets such as tablets, phones, computers, smart TVs, the list goes on. And that’s all on top of day-to-day systems such as lighting, heating and washing machines. It’s no wonder that residential energy consumption is on the increase, but those bills are costing you more!
Installing a home renewable energy system means you can take advantage of energy sources that will never run out. Light from the sun and heat from the ground will always be free.
THE PEPPERS, 2019
The average UK household could save hundreds of pounds a year by generating their own electricity through a home renewable energy system, such as solar panels. Savings jump up to over £1000 a year by installing a heat pump to provide heating and hot water!
On top of those savings, you can earn money through Government schemes that pay homeowners who generate their own renewable energy.

✓ Reducing your carbon footprint
