Duracell Energy Bank

Who we are

We’re the only energy supplier built especially to help you save money with solar and battery storage. With our install partners across the UK, we’ve built the largest community of connected solar battery systems, all saving together. Our clever technology and team of green pioneers are dedicated to helping you make the most of your solar!

Our goal is to revolutionise renewable energy. We believe net zero carbon emissions by 2050 isn’t enough. The UK should be changing their energy – not just switching it. Solar power delivers that change, and with batteries and our smart energy plans, we ensure all those who come aboard make greater savings, while creating a greener future.

Who we work with

From designing batteries with Duracell to connecting with SolaX Power solutions, we work with all the big names in solar and battery technology. When it comes to installation, we pair you with a local approved installer, already proven in implementing our technology.

Calculate your savings with us and we’ll put you in touch with a professional installer who’s best suited to you.

    I love finding creative ways to make smart grid opportunities like ours work within what can be a fairly archaic global energy system.
