Our solution

Energy for local places, intelligently delivered.

You know well that a home is much more than four walls and a ceiling. The local place where a house or flat exists matters just as much.

Local places matter for delivering net zero too, and are at the heart of our new, smart energy system solution.

The benefits



Receive regular long-term payments that can cut 25% or more off the cost of installing heat pumps and solar PV.


By 2025

For new projects our goal is to fully repay your upfront costs on commercial investment terms, delivering 100% saving.

We aggregate individual houses and flats on locally managed electrical networks with on-site heat pumps, solar PV and electric vehicle chargers, to create a smart local energy system, or microgrid.

We operate these systems by leasing the equipment from you and using it to supply green electricity generated on site to residents, who can benefit regardless of their tenure or location and can always switch supplier.

By intelligently integrating the equipment with battery storage, big data analytics and algorithms we cut running costs and reduce residents’ bills while maximising the value of the lease payments we make to you.
