You may have heard a bit of doomsday talk about the recent electricity prices.

The regulator is increasing its benchmark prices, ReAmped Energy has told all of its customers to go find someone else and the wholesale price has more than doubled over the course of a year.

The biggest piece of advice we have for solar customers is: don’t panic (even if you’re being asked to leave)! - You can thank your past self for investing in solar energy - you’re already far more sheltered from rising electricity prices.

Here are our tips for surviving the price hikes:

1. Use More Of Your Solar Energy

Guess the one tariff on your energy bill that is not increasing? Wouldn’t you know it, it’s the solar feed-in tariff - what you get paid when you send solar energy back to the grid.

This means that the single best thing you can do is to use more of your solar energy yourself. It’s free so snaffle up as much of it as possible instead of paying for the stuff from the grid.

Solar Analytics helps you understand when you produce and use your energy so that you can make sure to use your load-hungry appliances (washing machines, dryers etc) when you’re producing solar.

2. Don’t get caught out by surprise price increases!

Almost all electricity providers will be increasing their rates over the next few months. The good news is that electricity companies must inform you of rate increases, so keep an eye out for any emails, letters and notes on your next electricity bill.

We can help you here as well! When you update your electricity rates, we can let you know exactly what to expect on your next electricity bill so you can keep on top of your electricity costs before the dreaded bill arrives…
