Our smart grid scheme
A smart grid uses new technology to monitor energy demand and output and intelligently balances them to avoid peaks and troughs thus improving efficiency. If you have a home storage battery, you could benefit from Ecotricity’s smart grid scheme.
Here’s how it works. You’ll charge your battery from the grid and/or a source such as solar panels during a period of low demand. When demand increases so does the price of energy. The energy stored in your battery will be exported to our smart grid scheme when demand is peaking and we’ll pay you for it.
Our smart grid scheme will be coming soon.
