UK PV Owners Too Focused on Exporting Solar Generated Power

UK residents with Solar PV installations are too focused on the financial benefits of their installations, wrongly believing that exporting energy provides maximum benefit, according to academic research by a UK smart grid project. 

The study, led by the University of Durham as part of the Customer-Led Network Revolution (CLNR), discovered that Solar PV owners are undervaluing the financial benefits of consuming energy generated onsite. The study found that the adoption of solar is being driven by new conventions which are focused on the financial motivations given by the feed-in tariff.

The study discovered that PV owners are overvaluing the feed-in tariff revenue generated by exporting excess energy back to the grid instead of using energy generated to negate the purchase of electricity from the grid.
