British Gas are the last of the big six energy providers to announce a staggering 12% increase for domestic electricity customers with further heavy increases planned over the coming years as Britain edges ever nearer to leaving the European Union.
With interest rates low and prices increasing, now could be a good time to consider making changes to your energy use. This could be anything from buying quality energy efficient LED light bulbs to installing solar PV. Today, installing solar PV is more affordable than ever. You still receive payment for the energy you generate and the energy you are deemed to export. All payments to domestic customers are paid tax free, not to mention the savings you could make on your energy bills. If you have a hot water tank with an immersion heater, this can be run during daylight hours by your solar PV, keeping more energy on site, saving you buying it later.
