Solar PV Advice


Solar Advice Clinics

  • 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 January.

    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 techical@nea.org.uk or phone us on 0800 138 9023.
