How you can increase the value of your existing solar

Change your behaviour

My advice would always be – if you’ve got solar, with today’s electricity tariffs, use as much as you can in the middle of the day. So if you’re at home in the middle of the day, turn the washing machine, the dishwasher and things like that on, whilst it’s sunny and your solar panels are doing their most.

Consider a battery

Unfortunately a washing machine, dishwasher and things like that only use a certain amount of electricity and it’s rare that someone would be able to use all their electricity up from their solar panels even if they’re at home. And in that case batteries can again help by saving them energy from going out into the grid and saving it for later in the day when you’re paying a lot of money.

How much will you save?
