Enabling you to use more of the electricity you generate


Do you generate your own renewable electricity at home through wind or solar or plan to do so in the future?

ReFLEX Orkney is developing plans to help Orcadians get battery storage, solar PV and integration to the electricity grid that we aim to launch in 2021. Become a member and register your interest in this offer today then someone from the ReFLEX team will contact you shortly.

  • The details
    • For existing and new microgeneration. If you already have microgeneration installed, ReFLEX will be able to retrofit a battery to work with your existing system. If you do not, ReFLEX may be able to install solar PV and a battery together.

    • Custom fitting. Your battery can be fitted inside or outside the property and solar PV panels can be roof or ground mounted. We will work with you to understand the right solution for your home.

    • Access to the FlexiGrid. SMS, a partner of ReFLEX Orkney, will remotely manage the charging/discharging cycles of your battery through their FlexiGrid software platform. This will ensure you always have electricity when you need it. It will also optimise how your battery works with the grid to save you money and make the most of the electricity you generate at home.

    • Fits with FiT and SEG. Contact us to find out more about how home batteries will work for those on Feed-in-Tariff and Smart Export Guarantee schemes.

    • Help with grid connection. Installation will be dependent on securing a suitable grid connection offer and we will help with your application.

    • Do you live in the outer or inner isles? Check out our Isles residents factsheet for info on accessing ReFLEX Orkney's services where you live.
