The STC market I am sure is going to continue to be a very interesting space to watch!

As electricity prices only seem to be going one way, the benefits of going solar are becoming ever more evident to home owners (and businesses!)


Batteries are the next big thing!

Everyone’s talking about them and the number of installations are also increasing! The economics are at the tipping point to start tempting more households and in the next 6 – 12 month, we believe we will see this market start to heat up.

At Classic, we’ve already started funding battery systems and have updated the SolarInsights Online tool to incorporate the battery proposition. Get in touch to get a demonstration of this online tool, that is free for our accredited partners!
