Renewable energy: The solution to rising bills
4th March 2016

Year-on-year, UK households see their energy bills rising – despite trying to limit the use of gas and electricity at home. As a problem that shows no signs of going away, it’s time to look for more viable solutions – solutions that will help consumers save money while also saving the planet. The popularity of renewable energy solutions, such as solar PV and infrared heating, is starting to grow, with more families taking the leap and adopting alternative energy solutions. In today’s blog, we’re going to show you why renewable energy is the way forward and how it can help you cut your annual budget.

Dark prospects ahead

Britons face paying extortionate rates on energy bills, under new plans to ensure the UK has enough power plants to keep the lights on. Amber Rudd, the energy secretary, recently unveiled plans to overhaul a subsidy scheme, designed to maintain secure electricity supplies, amid fears it was failing and could leave the UK at risk of blackouts.

This scheme, due to run in winter 2018-19 and 2019-20, will result in energy firms being paid almost £1 billion in subsidies each year to guarantee their coal, gas and nuclear power plants will be running. The payments will be funded through levies on energy bills, affecting all household owners and adding about £10 a year to the typical household electricity bill.
