‘Big Six’ utility firm E.on has announced its entrance to the UK’s solar and storage market with a new consumer-focused offering. E.on Solar and Storage, launched in the UK today, aims to install solar and storage systems for both E.on and non-E.on customers, adding to its current energy supply model. The energy supplier says its systems will be capable of saving customers as much as 30% on their electricity bills, equivalent to around £300 and as much as £560 each year with storage. E.on has already launched a similar service in Germany and Sweden, and will launch its product in the Midlands first and foremost before expanding countrywide over the course of 2017.
