Sussex & Lewes: Saving sunshine & supporting the future of energy


Be part of the future of energy in Sussex

Moixa develops clean energy technology to help the world live in a renewable energy powered future. We install solar panels and smart solar batteries to unlock the full potential of solar energy. Find out more about our Smart Battery here.

We are looking for potential Moixa Smart Battery and solar panel owners in the Sussex area, to help us support the future of energy.

Why Sussex?

Earlier this year, Moixa won a contract with UK Power Networks (UKPN), in one of the country’s first deals, to provide energy capacity to a local electricity network from home energy storage in certain Sussex postcodes*.

From September 2020, Moixa will deliver 50kW of power capacity to the local power network.

“Households have a huge role to play in the future of our energy system. Very soon the majority of homes won’t just be consuming electricity, they’ll be generating, storing and selling it too, all while helping network operators deliver the best and most affordable service to their customers. The services that we will provide UK Power Networks in Lewes – Newhaven showcases that the transition to this future is already well on its way”

Pierre Castel, Moixa Head of Flexibility

Receive a £500 Moixa Smart Battery discount when you get involved!

Moixa are looking for homeowners who either:

  • Have solar energy and are looking for smart energy storage
  • Are interested in installing a full solar & storage package

Homeowners who buy a 4.8kWh** Moixa Smart Battery and sign up to GridShare Membership will benefit from £500 off their purchase. GridShare members will support the local power network, receive an extended warranty and get £50 a year for three years. For households whose devices are used for grid services (like the UKPN contract), Moixa measures and reports on the impact it makes to your usual battery behaviour and then provides reimbursement for any saving that have been lost.

What are the details?

UKPN was the country’s first network operator to commit to a radical ‘Flexibility First’ approach. This change allowed those with distributed small-scale energy generation or storage assets at their home or business to offer energy capacity. By doing this, UKPN saves customers money by replacing the need to make costly network reinforcements.

Moixa has pioneered smart charging of batteries and EVs with its patented GridShare technology. GridShare is optimised to always act in the economic interests of the consumer by charging the battery from rooftop solar or discharging it to the home or grid at the most cost-effective time.

The batteries will export power in response to demand across UKPN’s region, to help meet consumption during peak periods. They will also use artificial intelligence to optimise the performance of each household’s solar plus storage system based on patterns of behaviour, weather conditions and market prices.
