Generation

03

The rooftop solar PV panels are estimated to generate XXX,XXXkWh of electricity in the first year of operation and through the SNRG SmartGrid, meet an estimated XX% of the West Works residents’ demand with local, low-cost, low-carbon solar power.

Storage

04

SNRG will fund, install, and maintain a large, communal battery on the West Works SNRG SmartGrid. This will be used to store excess rooftop solar PV and also store low-cost, low- carbon grid electricity bought at night.

05

We estimate that the rooftop solar PV panels and the purchasing of low-carbon grid elec- tricity will avoid XXX tonnes of CO2e in the first year of operating the West Works SNRG SmartGrid alone.

HOW A SMARTGRID WORKS

Harnessing the communal power or Bourne View

→ A traditional approach

The SNRG SmartGrid approach

In the UK, household electricity consumption often peaks at times that don’t coincide with sunlight hours – like turning on the kettle for your morning or evening cuppa. This misalignment means that the average UK home with 10 solar panels will use less than half of the solar power produced. The surplus? It’s exported back to the grid for far less than what it costs to buy electricity from the grid! We believe this is not only unfair but a waste of low-cost, low-carbon electricity.

HOW A SMARTGRID WORKS

Harnessing the communal power or Bourne View

A traditional approach

→ The SNRG SmartGrid approach

Rooftop solar PV is connected directly to the SNRG SmartGrid, which means your home can access the power from the 316 solar panels plus the large communal battery storage system on the Bourne View SNRG SmartGrid. The SNRG SmartGrid ensures that you will only ever pay for the electricity your home uses, while the communal-wide network minimises the wasteful export of low-cost, low-carbon solar power back to the grid while equally maximising the benefits and savings for all homes on the SNRG SmartGrid.

Funded, maintained and operated by SNRG

SNRG has funded the SmartGrid at Bourne View which includes:

→ The Rooftop solar PV
→ The communal battery
→ The energy metering hardware and software

SNRG will also maintain and operate all of the above. This means you don’t have to worry about cleaning the solar panels on your roof or optimising the battery. That’s SNRG’s job.
