**New** Talk to us about home batteries – great if your home isn’t ready for solar!

Home battery.
But optimised.

Optimise your home energy system, maximise your savings. 

Glowb’s market-leading AI-powered app is here.

Power to the people.

How it works:

Connect

Connect the Glowb app to your inverter in one simple step. The app does the rest of the hard work.

Optimise

See how much energy your home is generating, how much you’re using and what you’re selling to the grid.

Get the details

Drill down into daily, weekly and monthly trends to see how much energy you’re using per source.

See the savings

Our app shows you how the uplift in your savings from the clever AI optimisation, compared to non-optimised solar and battery system. 

It’s time to power up your home energy system

Finally, the app of all home energy apps is here to help you get the best out of your home energy system. AI is here to power up how you live in your home. The Glowb app connects your home energy system together, working automatically and seamlessly in the background to optimise the way you live in your home. Using multiple data feeds including the weather forecast, tariff information and your household usage data, the Glowb app gives you ultimate peace of mind that you’re getting the most out of your system and making your savings go even further.

What is optimisation?

The machine-learning algorithm at the heart of the app makes decisions on your behalf about the best actions for your energy devices based on various live data points – more on this below. The algorithm is always learning and makes decisions every 5 minutes!

These intelligent and automatic decisions save you time, worry and even more money as the app’s optimisation goal is to maximise efficiency and therefore savings.

What data does the app use to make optimisations?

There are three main data points that go into the app’s optimisation process and decision-making:

Forecasting

Tariffs

Hardware

How are savings calculated?

In a nutshell, the term ‘savings’ is used for what your energy costs would be, assuming you didn’t have a solar system or battery and assuming you were on the cheapest tariff available.

With an optimised battery, the additional savings are compared against an estimate of what they’d be if the battery operated in self-sufficiency mode.

Total savings is the combination of these two amounts.

What sort of decisions/actions can the optimisation lead to?

The algorithm in the app optimises for maximum efficiency and therefore savings. Based on what the algorithm learns from the various data points, here are a few examples of actions it might automatically take:

Why is the Glowb app a big deal?

You spoke, we listened.

We’re a bit obsessed with listening to our customers. Over the last year you’ve told us ‘wouldn’t it be great if there was an app to help me make the most of my system’. Beyond just the flat experience of connecting to a manufacturer’s basic app (or, for the super geeky, using several apps together to try and get an overall picture). The new Glowb app means no more guessing and no more juggling multiple apps.

We’re also a bit obsessed about listening to people who want to switch to solar, but aren’t ready, and so we’re extra excited to bring something to the market that will help them find solar and battery living even more compelling. Want extra clarity about generation? Want to know how to optimise expected solar savings? Want to learn more as your system learns more? Want to know what to do, when? The Glowb app solves all. 

Because we’re genuinely on a mission to make solar and renewable energy easy for all, our intelligent app can also be used to non-Glowb customers. Already have a solar or battery install but still feel the smart, intelligent layer or home energy optimisation is missing?

Try the Glowb app – you won’t be disappointed. 

Get a better return on your solar panel investment

Is it better to run the washing machine at night? How about the best time to charge your car? Or does putting the dishwasher on right after dinner cost you more?

Our revolutionary app helps you make the most sustainable and cost-effective decisions for your home.

Selling to the grid?

Much like trading on the stock exchange, you want to buy and sell your electricity at the right time. Our app uses the latest AI technology to determine when you should stock up on electricity and when you should sell. Giving you greater control over your household finances, and makes your solar installation work for you.

Only with Glowb

We’re delighted we can bring this clever and useful tech to the UK market, empowering customers to feel good and in control of their renewable systems. Easy tech for big change is something we really believe in at Glowb. We’re so confident in our market-leading app that it can also be used for non-Glowb customers. We’re on a mission to make renewable systems easy and stress-free for everyone! 

FAQs

 We want everyone to get the most out of their solar installation, regardless of who did the installation.  At the moment, only Glowb customers can access the app but that’s changing. We’ll soon be able to offer the app to everyone with solar panels, regardless of who did the installation. 

Your Smart Meter will only tell you how much energy you’ve used, not whether that energy comes from your panels or the grid. Our app will let you know how much energy you’re generating, how much you’re using and how much you’re buying from the grid. Plus, if you have a battery, it will help you buy at the best times when you’re more likely to need it and sell for the best price. 

No. The app connects with your inverter so even without a battery, this will help you get the most out of your solar panels. It helps you use energy at the most optimal times of the day so that you’re getting the most out of your solar panels. 

Yes. We’re committed to helping homeowners get the most out of their solar installation. 

Our app will be forever free for Glowb customers and is currently free for everyone who has solar panels regardless of installation company. 

Right now, the app works with Solex inverters but we’re making the app available for more inverters very soon. 

5/5

“Glowb have been great and we are delighted with the finished product. The whole team (all the trades people) have been super helpful and friendly. They have also built a plan and design to suit our house which most solar companies won’t do. We are delighted with the end product”.

5/5

“An amazing solar installation company. We were absolutely delighted by our whole experience with Glowb. We had received a number of other quotations from other suppliers but Glowb stood out. We are now producing an enormous amount of energy and pretty much self-sufficient most of the time. The whole system seems to be working even better than we had hoped. We would highly recommend anybody considering a solar installation to contact Glowb”.

5/5

“Glowb designed a solution for our home and usage that seemed more carefully thought out than other companies we got quotes from. The team were friendly and courteous and kept us in the loop, and we always felt that the guys on-site and those back at base were all determined to deliver the best outcome. It wasn’t the simplest installation, but everybody’s attitude, professionalism and expertise made it as stress-free for us as it could possibly have been”.
