Can anyone help! Bought a house with solar panels on, only registered them a few months ago.

So my question is... Who pays us for the electricity that has been stored?

We are now with Octopus who pays for the export, but what about the electricity generated before that? Any help would be great.

My understanding is you only get paid from the date you registered them.

Good luck. I did the same and it took 13 months to sort out. The electricity company will pay you. Have you considered batteries for storage, it saves more money and funding is available I believe.

You'll only get paid from when you registered it. And don't expect to make much especially on the current rates, maybe £40-60 a year.

We are with Shell Energy & have 14 panels. We are earning around £600-800 pa, obviously dependant on the weather.

We transferred ownership of panels from previous owners of our house , we carried on with the energy company they used , it did take SSE a long time to pay us but we are lucky to be on the old rate so get about 800 a year .

Future valuations are all speculations and educated guesses, so I advise you guys to forget predictions and start making good profit right away. Others are waiting patiently for the price to soar while I and others trade without worrying about losing money. Everything depends on the pattern you stick to. In January 1 , I was able to earn 3BTC thanks to deals I executed using Jessica Dunivan advice and knowledge.
