Good Energy begins rooftop PV installs, says Zap-Map users likely to drive growth

Good Energy says it has completed its first domestic rooftop PV installation two months after completing the acquisition of Igloo Works in December 2022.
The company says over 250,000 households are considering a solar installation by 2026 and as a “trusted green pioneer with over 20 years as a renewable electricity supplier” it is well placed to access the market and it plans to launch a “market leading” export tariff.
It also says the Zap-Map charging app (in which Good Energy is a major investor), has shown that EV drivers are seven times more likely than average to have solar installed – 29% of 4,000 EV drivers surveyed by Zap-Map have a PV array. Good Energy says the app’s 700,000 registered users represent another significant area of growth for Good Energy’s new services.
Good Energy chief executive Nigel Pocklington said, ” Not only can we provide customers with the digital services and export tariffs to make a solar install stack up, we can now provide the tech itself too.
“We expect the surging interest in solar to remain high for the foreseeable future. Right now it’s being driven by the on-going high cost of energy, and we intend to continue to drive interest with competitive export tariffs, financing and bundling to make cutting carbon cost effective.”
