I can't afford a battery. Is there anything I can do to help this cause?


If you'd like to learn how to buy a battery at a better cost, it's worth noting that Amber's SmartShift can speed up the return on investment on a battery.

And in terms of the upfront cost, we recently set up a new partnership, to ensure people can get batteries at better rates. Power have a user-friendly platform that allows you to obtain quotes for precisely what you are looking for - whether that be solar, a battery, or a solar and battery bundle. They will quote you on hardware that works best with Amber & SmartShift, at preferred rates for Amber customers.

If you'd like to learn more, head here. 

Other than this, the best thing you can do is spread the word - tell anyone you know who has a battery how they can make a difference by automating their battery through Amber’s SmartShift or another VPP. 

You can also advocate for the government to do more to make batteries accessible to all, for example by support the Cheaper Batteries Bill put forward by Helen Haines MP.
