How SIG ses works


As our demand for energy increases so does the pressure we place on networks to deliver the power we need.

In the UK, approximately 93% of our electricity is currently generated by nuclear reactors and the burning of fossil fuels. The remainder is produced by renewable fuel sources such as wind, hydro, and solar.

How it works
Take control


If you install an electricity-generating technology from a renewable or low-carbon source such as solar, the UK Government’s Feed-In Tariffs scheme (FITs) could mean that you can be paid by your energy supplier for the electricity you generate. The surplus electricity is then exported back into the grid.

However, in order to meet EU targets of 30% of electricity being generated by renewable sources by 2020 it is estimated that ten million homes, more than one third of households, in the UK would need to have solar panels installed. The problem we face is that an estimated £30 billion is needed to modernise the grid before this is possible.

We must therefore make the most of ALL the energy we harvest.

Now, for the first time, a method of using and sharing ALL generated energy in the most efficient way is available to ANY social housing property.

With SIG, solar panels installed to the roof of one social housing property, either new build or retrofit, generates electricity which is then shared between neighbouring homes and all residual generated energy is then exported back into the grid.

SIG technology ensures the continual, cost-effective management of energy as it calculates the most effective route to distribute power between properties - channelling power to the homes with immediate need.

SIG removes the potential of human error by taking over responsibility of your energy supply so you can be certain only the most cost-effective method of energy is used at all times.

Take control

For the first time, all social housing accommodation can access FREE energy and take back control of energy costs.
