More good news as another Utility is promoting solar, storage and self-consumption in Europe. We await similar news in the UK for major electricity suppliers to offer complete smart, self-consumption packages to their customers. Suppliers need to adopt these new business models or they risk being left behind, losing revenue to people who can generate their own decentralised electricity.
As grids get smarter and consumers get savvier about their own energy consumption, allowing electrical customers to have more control over their own energy needs is one way to get to a more efficient and potentially cheaper (and lower carbon) electricity system. The EDF Group is following suit by transforming its residential PV solutions into one that focuses on better energy management and increased self-consumption. The company’s solar subsidiary, EDF ENR, recently announced the launch of its Mon Soleil & Moi (My Sun & Me) offering, which aims to give customers the tools for maximizing the use of the electricity generated by their home solar arrays, including the option to store some of it for later use in a battery storage system
