Join Tesla Energy Plan – lowest fixed rate of electricity in the UK

By joining the Tesla Energy Plan you get to enjoy the lowest flat rate of electricity in the UK – 8-11p/kWh.

To participate you need to have Solar Panels & a Tesla Powerwall installed at your home. If you have Solar already then you only need to add a Powerwall, For information on either or both, then do contact us to discuss the benefits of Solar & Energy Storage.

Powerwall stores surplus Solar generated energy to use any time, can charge from the grid & provides back up power during power cuts.

With the Tesla Energy plan, using your solar and Powerwall, you generate, store and return clean energy to the community during peak times.

By joining the UK Tesla Virtual Power Plant, you’ll save up to 75% on your energy bills compared to the Big 6 energy providers.

The Tesla Energy Plan is administered by Octopus Energy & offers a flat import rate of £0.08-0.11/kWh – the lowest single rate tariff available in the market (as of October 2020) and a flat export rate of £0.08-0.11/kWh for any electricity you export.

Greenest Ever Year for GB Electricity Generation 2017

According to the National Grid figures, reported by WWF recently, the GB electricity was the “greenest” ever.

For the first time, wind, nuclear and solar power generated more than gas and coal combined in June last year breaking 13 clean energy records. Since 2012, Britain has halved it’s carbon emissions and is now the 4th cleanest power system in Europe and the 7th Worldwide.

Despite this carbon emissions for 2017, which averaged 275g/kWh, were still someway from the 2030 target of 100g/kWh. Further data can be found at MyGridGB

There are many ways we can impact our carbon footprints at home & at work from simple things like turning off lights, controlling heating systems, insulating our properties to investing in renewable energy & electric cars.

Stratford Energy can help with integrating renewable energy such as Solar Panels, energy storage & EV charging as well as LED lighting.

Christmas Opening Hours

The Stratford Energy Solutions office is closed from 5pm Wednesday 20th December & reopens 9am Tuesday 2nd January 2018.

UK Electric & Plug-in Hybrid Car market grows 47.5% in October 2017

The UK’s plug-in car market saw continued strong performance in October, accounting for 2.2% of total registrations – in sharp contrast to the diesel’s sales dropping 30% according to Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) figures.Pure electric car (EV) registrations of 672 units increased more than 70% compared to October 2016, while plug-in hybrid (PHEV) registrations increased almost 47%. Combined plug-in car registrations increased 51% in October compared to 2016’s figures.

Total new car registrations decreased 12% compared to last year, though all of that decline is because of the lack of buyer confidence in diesel. Diesel sales decreased 29.9% in October, a malaise that has affected the few diesel-hybrid models on sale too, as they fell almost 50% compared to last year. Diesel-hybrids only accounted for 64 units though, compared to conventional diesel’s 62,349 registrations.

If you are investing in a fully electric or plug-in hybrid car please contact us for information on options for charging at home & work.
