When we come for a consultation and survey, we can take a look at your energy consumption.  Once we understand a little more about your lifestyle, we can think about the future and how your needs might evolve. 

Over the next ten years, domestic electric consumption in the UK is expected to increase, especially in relation to space and water heating. The government’s target of achieving net-zero emissions by 2050 is driving a push towards electrification.


-Electric heating solutions such as heat pumps and electric boilers are becoming increasingly popular due to their energy efficiency and low carbon emissions. With this shift towards electric heating and hot water systems, households will consume more electricity to power these systems. It is likely that the Government will take steps to phase out traditional gas-powered boilers as targets on climate change are brought into focus. 


-In addition to space and water heating, households will also consume more electricity due to the increased use of smart devices and electric cooking appliances. Smart home devices, such as smart thermostats and smart lighting systems, are becoming more common, and electric cookers and induction hobs are an eco-friendly alternative to gas-powered options.


-The rise of electric vehicles (EVs) and micromobility solutions, such as electric bicycles and scooters, will also lead to an increase in domestic electric consumption. Charging EVs at home will require a significant amount of electricity, and households may need to consider upgrading their electrical infrastructure to handle the increased demand.


All our solar and home energy storage systems are scalable, only limited by the roof space you have available.  It is worth having a conversation about any likely increases in your electricity use in the near future.  We can then help you decide on the level of investment to get the maximum return over the next five to ten years.
