Store Energy For Later Use
Benefits of Solar Batteries
If you have solar panels installed, adding a solar battery is an excellent way to store the generated energy, which would otherwise go to waste. More and more people are opting for solar batteries to minimise their reliance on the grid, sell excess electricity back to the grid, and reduce their carbon footprint.
At Ecostar Solar, our team of experts can provide you with all the information you need about energy companies in the Leicester region that participate in the Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) programme.

Reduced Reliance on Grids
Local energy suppliers can be unpredictable, and your Leicester-based household should be in control of its own energy supply. A solar array equipped with solar batteries turns your home into an energy island!
Our team has everything in hand, from coming to your Leicester property for a free site survey to the final installation. We can even retrofit a battery onto pre-existing solar panels. Just get in touch to discuss if a retrofit is right for you.
Consistent and Sustainable
No matter the weather, solar energy is more reliable thanks to solar batteries. You can use more of the solar energy you produce and lower your carbon footprint by purchasing a full solar array, including panels and batteries.
The independence that solar batteries provide cannot be understated. Your batteries will be a completely independent and personal energy supply that’ll help you meet your household’s energy needs.
Why Choose Solar Batteries?
Depending on how much extra energy you produce, the SEG programme gives you the chance to eventually recoup the cost of a solar battery. Contact us to learn more about the benefits of selling your excess energy back to utility companies.
Reducing Your Carbon Footprint
It’s an excellent, eco-friendly decision to install solar panels along with batteries to store green energy more effectively and lower your carbon footprint. Solar batteries enable you to store solar energy, one of the best sources of renewable energy, for later use.
Solar batteries are an important part of a full solar energy system. By purchasing them, you’re making an investment in a never-ending source of renewable energy, which could power your Leicester home for many years.

Find out about schemes and more
Over the past few years, solar batteries have gained tremendous popularity. When you consider the extra benefits, it just makes sense.
First of all, solar panels generate the most energy during the day when the sun is at its peak. However, most people aren’t at home during the day to use the generated energy. This could lead to electricity being wasted if there is no way to capture and conserve it. Instead, consider storing energy in solar batteries for later use.
Additionally, if you reserve energy for later use, you might not use it all and end up with extra energy. This is a fantastic chance to consider alternative uses for the extra electricity. To try and recoup the installation costs, you could, for example, sell the extra energy back to the National Grid.
Here are a few of the Smart Export Guarantee’s (SEG) most frequently asked questions regarding batteries.
How much do energy suppliers offer per kWh?
Energy prices are updated continuously based on supply and demand in the market, and as we’ve seen in recent years, energy prices from local suppliers can skyrocket. If you store your own energy, you can sell it back to the grid. Depending on the SEG-licensed energy supplier in the Leicester region, you can anticipate receiving payments between 1 and 15 pence per kWh for the energy stored in your batteries.
Which companies offer SEG rates?
- Octopus Energy*
- Shell Energy
- British Gas
- Pozitive Energy
- SO Energy
- Utility Warehouse
*Certain companies offer higher rates to their own customers.
Check the SEG supplier list on the Ofgem website.
How long will it take to recoup my costs?
Without a grant or other programme, recovering costs might take up to 9 years, depending on the cost of energy at the time. When switching to solar, we strongly suggest taking into account programmes like SEG that can help offset the costs. Solar batteries and panels are a long-term investment in your home and future, so consider the long-term impact when making your decision.
