Households with solar in the UK face rising energy bills

Homes with solar panels could find themselves paying more towards maintaining the national grid


The Times reports that a million households that have installed solar panels face an increase in their energy bills under Ofgem plans to overhaul the way Britain’s electricity networks are funded.



It adds: “Electric vehicle owners who charge their cars at peak times also face paying bigger levies towards the upkeep of power networks than those who charge overnight, the regulator has proposed.”

The energy regulator has begun a consultation on moving to a new system by 2021 and says that the current network funding model “may be unfair and is only going to get more unfair”.
