National Energy Action (NEA) has teamed up with social
landlords Gentoo in the North East, WDH in West Yorkshire and the London
Boroughs of Camden and Waltham Forest on a project to advise households with
solar PV on how to maximise the benefits of the system and reduce bills. The
project is called ‘Increasing self-consumption of Solar PV’ and has been funded
by the Energy Industry Voluntary Redress Scheme.
As part of this project NEA has produced an advice leaflet
on ‘Understanding your solar PV system and maximising the benefits’. This has
been sent out to tenants of the 4 landlords with PV systems.
We are also holding a series of online video advice clinics in
January. Tenants will be able to learn more about their solar PV system, hear
from technical experts at NEA and other organisations, ask questions and
request additional one to one advice. We will be providing telephone advice where
required, and also offering a limited number of technologies to help households
make better use of their systems. The technologies will include energy monitors
and displays, and solar diversion devices which tries to use the free
electricity when it is available to heat water.
As part of the project, NEA wants to evaluate how energy monitors and
other small measures can help residents increase their use of solar PV.
We have scheduled a daytime and an early evening clinic for
each region. It would be better to attend a clinic for your region as there may
be landlord specific advice provided. However, if you are unable to attend the
clinic for your region, you are welcome to book a place at any other clinic in
The dates and times for the advice clinics are in the registration form below.
If you have any questions about the clinics, please contact the Technical team at NEA at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone us on 0800 138 9023.
