Introducing Renewable Energy To Your Home

During lockdown we’ve all been spending a lot more time at home and many of us have been looking at this as a great time to work on some home improvements. Fixing that door handle, re-tiling a bathroom, but what about cutting your energy bills?

We’ve been conducting virtual surveys during lockdown and now we’re back in our happy place; on the roofs of Guernsey! But it hasn’t just been our increase in usage from spending more time at home that’s been getting everyone’s attention but the nearly 5% price increase in electricity last year too. By switching to renewable energy you’re not just saving that 5%, you could halve your energy bill, or even better you could rid your household energy bill entirely! Imagine a 100% saving on your electricity bill. In-fact locally, Guernsey Electric have a “Buy Back” tariff where if you generate more electricity than you use it can be sent back to the grid and this can off-set electricity bills. 

With the latest in Solar Photovoltaic (Solar PV) technology it doesn’t have to be a glorious Caribbean sunny day to generate power, those usual grey and cloudy Guernsey days we all know too well can still generate electricity for your home.

There’s one name in battery storage that is head-and-shoulders above the rest and that’s the incredible Tesla Powerwall. At Little Green we’re proud to be the only authorised Tesla Powerwall installer in Guernsey, and having installed over 50 of them locally we come with all the experience you need to make sure your renewable energy is delivered and stored correctly and safely. Adding a battery storage solution to your home can store this renewable energy and use it throughout the evening and night; power your lights at 10pm from solar energy generated at 10am! 

The big questions, how much does it cost and how much will I save? This is unique to each property and household, so there is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, however, what we can say is that most people have their investment covered within 8-12 years and all of our installations come with a 25 year warranty. 

So that’s many years of free, green energy powering your home. But what to do with it…

Electric Vehicles

… well how about you start saving on your petrol bills too by investing in an electric vehicle, maybe one of the all-new Electric Fiat 500’s?

It would take on average about 10 solar panels to power an electric Fiat 500 for everyday island use. So you can drive around all day with fuel generated from the Solar PV panels on your home, for free!

Renewable energy isn’t just an immediate investment in your home and life, it’s a long term investment too, embracing green energy to power all aspects of your life.

If you’d like to learn more about going green, reducing your energy bills and future-proofing your home, it could not be simpler.
