HOW IT WORKS
Your solar PV or wind turbines harvest electricity every day, but if you aren’t at home or using smart devices the energy is wasted. When you get home you need to use electricity. So, you have to buy energy from the grid, sound familiar? Thankfully, technology has caught up and you can now store the electricity your home produces. You will no longer need to buy as much energy from the grid, in fact you may also be able to sell the extra electricity produced back to the grid.
The Electric Storage Company ran the first field trial with permission to supply and install battery storage units in domestic properties in Northern Ireland. Our installations are carried out by trained, certified professionals. NIE Networks continues to support our research with Project GIRONA. This is the first smart grid project in Northern Ireland. It will supply and fit up to 100 smart battery units and combine them on our PARIS platform to earn revenue for our customers from the grid and electricity markets.
HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?
When you use energy in your home, it isn’t always in line with when the cheapest renewable energy is available and that’s why the storage device is so important, but the device costs money. They typically cost £5,250* but it is designed for 20 years service life depending on usage and this depends on the household usage pattern.
Typically our customers have seen a reduction in their electricity bills of between 25-40%, but by changing some of your household behaviours and technology you could increase this saving.
*excluding VAT, installation and registration/licensing fees.
