Renewable technologies

Renewable energy plays a critical role in the UK’s efforts to reduce its carbon emissions.  As well as helping the environment, making the switch to renewable energy can save you money. For example, installing solar energy panels could save you up to £240 a year on your energy bills.

What type of renewable energy is right for me?

There are a variety of different renewable technologies available, each with their own distinct benefits and considerations. It is important to get expert advice on the suitability of a renewable technology for your home. We also recommend using an installer who is certified under the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) and uses MCS-certified products.

Renewable Energy and Low Carbon Schemes

Please visit the Heating and Insulation Grants section to see what renewable/low carbon measures may be available to you through the ECO; Warmer Homes and BUS Schemes. 

Solar Together Sussex

This is a scheme for residents who are able to pay for their own solar panels. It is run by Sussex councils to help residents get a high quality solar installation and generate clean electricity at home. Any surplus income that councils generate from the scheme is paid into a Fuel Poverty Fund to help local people with their energy costs – West Sussex County Council – Solar Together
