Welcome to Rudge Energy
As well as being a leading provider of Solar Power and Storage Systems in the South West, we can provide you with solutions to keep your ever growing power bills low. With electricity prices rising in 2019 and more rises to come soon, if you already have a Solar PV system, this year is the time add some form of storage to make the most of excess power that’s going out onto the grid.. Your PV system generated it, so try and keep it and use it!
Energy Storage update
We install in the South West a variety of Energy Storage systems. 2018 has seen some good breakthrough’s in technology and now in 2019 equipment costs are getting competitive. We love modular Li-Ion systems which allow you to install storage appropriate for your Solar array size and power requirements. Tesla has done some great marketing, but are really out of date and prove that ‘one size fits all’ does not work in the UK’s power storage world. Now that Li-Ion battery technology has come down in price as well as size, old lead acid technology is truly gone & now been replaced with smaller, neater and long lasting Lithium technology.

Off Grid Power
For so many rural situations where mains electricity is either not available or far too expensive to get installed, we can offer a design and installation package. From running lights & TV in a caravan or a remote telecoms site, right through to containerised power systems for a remote house or business. See our specialist OFF GRID website.
We are now an approved Victron Energy installer with regular update training at Victron in The Netherlands. In addition we were also one of the first certificated Sunny Island installers, attending training at SMA HQ in Germany back in 2012. If you are looking for expertise in Off Grid, we are Company to choose.
Store your Excess Power as Hot Water!
We supply and install power diverter devices, these units divert your excess PV generation from being exported onto the grid, to storing as useful hot water in your existing hot water cylinder. We supply the Solar iBoost and Eddi. All of which have their own aspects that will fit in with your PV installation. Click here for the main page
Domestic Solar PV installations
The Feed in Tariff is now gone, but the new Smart Export Tariff arriving in January 2020, we are seeing that for anyone who has uses power, especially during the day, installing a PV system will reduce the ongoing running costs considerably. With future huge price rises in energy already starting, coupled with far lower PV panel costs, getting solar PV installed is the most cost effective method of reducing your power bills.
