Home Energy Group, Keighley, West Yorkshire

Find Us

Home Energy Group has been at the forefront of renewable energy since 2012 as a wholesaler of renewable products under the Home Switch Ltd umbrella.

Leading the way with affordable solar panels, LUX Solar battery storage systems and Bunsen Air thermodynamic water solutions.

In 2019 we decided to add an installation option to our products to give the end-user competitive and market leading prices. This was the birth of Home Energy Group Ltd.

As an approved LUX Power distributor & installer, we pride ourselves on working with the latest technology to ensure our customers benefit from all the cost-saving renewable products.

We are not a sales company taking on any product, but a company that is dedicated to only representing the Lux Power Tek products as they are the leading Manufacturers in the battery storage field. With only dedicating ourselves to one product means we are fully knowledgeable on both its capabilities and its technical support, should any of our customers reach out for any forms of help regarding their system.

Home Energy Group is more than happy to help with all your home energy needs.

be of satisfactory quality; be fit for purpose; and, operate as we described to you.

with the Consumer Code.

The Timetable
2.2 We agree to supply the goods and carry out the installation work as specified in the timetable
that we have agreed with you and which is set out in the Quotation. Your acceptance of these terms
indicates that you agree to proceed using that timetable.

2.2.1 We will make every effort to complete the work by the time agreed with you. You must
appreciate, however, that sometimes delays may occur for reasons beyond our control. Such
reasons may include, for example, severe weather. We cannot be held responsible for those delays.

2.2.2 If such delays occur we will tell you as soon as possible and we will adjust the timetable by
written agreement.

3.1 We will carry out the work and all communication with you according to the Consumer Code.
3.3 Once the installed system is commissioned we will give to you any guarantees, test certificates
and other relevant paperwork related to your goods and installation. We will aim to give you this
when the system is commissioned but certainly no later than seven days after commissioning.
3.5 The guarantees we give you will cover the goods and installation and will comply with the
Consumer Code. We will explain to you the terms of the guarantees both in writing and verbally.
3.6 We will ensure that the guarantees will be honoured should we fall into receivership,
administration or bankruptcy during the term of the installer’s guarantee. Please see Section 5 of
this contract for details.
Your MAIN OBLIGATION to us is to make the payments due to us

The Deposit
4.1 You will pay us the deposit specified in the Quotation when you sign this agreement. The deposit
cannot be more than 30% of the total contract price set out in the Quotation. Should you decide to
cancel the contract within the ‘Cancellation Period’ (see section 1.3 of this Contract) we will return
that deposit to you in full.
4.1.1 If you pay the deposit before we have inspected your house, and if we find during that
inspection that the installation cannot proceed, then we will refund that deposit to you in full within
two weeks.

Advance payments
4.2 The Quotation we have given to you must explain when invoices will be sent and the amount due
for each payment.
4.3 We may require you to pay a further advance payment no more than three weeks before the
agreed delivery or installation date but only if this is explained to you in your quotation. This further
advance payment will only be used for work under this contract, for example for purchasing goods.
– if we do not deliver any goods to you before installation then such a further advance payment,
taken together with the deposit, will under no circumstances be more than 60% of the total price in
the Quotation.
– we may use your further advance payment to purchase goods and deliver them to you. If we do
this, and only if title to those goods transfers to you, the sum used to purchase those specific goods
will no longer represent an advance payment.
4.4 If we fall into receivership, administration or bankruptcy your deposit and advance payment, if
any, will be protected as detailed in section 5 of this Contract.

Final Payment
4.5 We will issue you with an invoice for the balance outstanding on the contract price. This will
become due on the day of installation.
4.5.1 In the event of any alleged minor defect with the goods or installation, then you shall not be
entitled to withhold more than a proportionate amount of the sum due. If you do withhold any
amount after the due date because of any alleged minor defect, then you must give us as much
notice as possible and state the reasons you are withholding the payment.

Consequences of late payment
4.6 If you fail to pay the amount specified in an invoice by the due date then we may charge interest
until the full amount is paid. The interest rate we charge will be 3% above the base rate set by the
Bank of England.
Late payment of advance or ‘interim’ payments
4.6.1 If we do not receive payment by the seventh day after payment is due, then we may give you
written notice that we intend to stop work on the installation. Once we have sent you this written
notice, we may suspend all work until payment is made.
4.6.2 If you are in breach of this Contract because you have failed to make an agreed payment, and
we have suspended work on the installation, then we may be entitled to recover any additional costs
we incur. We will provide you with written notice containing full particulars of any claim for
compensation within 21 days of any suspension of work.
4.6.3 We may require you to return and deliver up the goods to us. Failing this we will take legal
proceedings to recover the goods or their outstanding value.

5.1 We will advise you on the approvals and permissions that you may need but you must obtain all
relevant permissions (such as planning and building consents) that are necessary before we start
work on the installation. If we ask to see those permissions (and related drawings and/or
specifications) you must make those available.

Supply of services
5.2 You must provide the following for our use free of any charge:
water, washing facilities and toilets;
electricity supply;
adequate storage space;
safe and easy access to your property from the public highway;
easy access to the location within the property where the installation is to take place by removing all
5.3 You, or a contractor you employ, may need to carry out preparatory work before the installation
described in the Quotation can start. If so, we will describe this to you in writing. This work must be
finished before the agreed date on which installation work is due to start. This work must be
undertaken by competent persons and must be of the necessary quality for the installation. If this
preparatory work is not finished before the agreed date on which the installation is due to start,
then the conditions described in clause 2.2.7 of this Contract will apply.

Additional charges
5.4 Should you be in breach of conditions set out in 4.1, 4.2 and 4.3 of this Contract you may incur
additional costs due to delay and/or provision of additional services. You may be required to pay
reasonable compensation to cover those extra costs. If this happens then section 7 (below) of this
Contract will apply.

6.1 If, after signing the contract, you want to change the work, you must consult with us first. We
may be able to incorporate your changes into the installation provided that:
it is technically possible; we have the necessary resources; the necessary permissions are in place.
6.2 If we agree to this change of work you must
confirm your request in writing; and, do so within 14 days of when you first tell us.
6.3 We will then adjust the price:
by written agreement beforehand, if possible; or if not then by later written agreement; or if not
then by referring to any priced documents, if this applies; or if not then by a reasonable amount for
the work done or goods supplied.
6.4 Every change that means extra or revised work (as opposed to changes that leave something
out) may mean extra costs. We will try to keep those costs to a minimum.

7.1 The Quotation given to you details the hourly or daily costs that would result from any
unexpected work due to site conditions or special circumstances beyond the control of the member.
7.2 Where unexpected work arises, we will tell you and ask how you want us to proceed. If you want
us to continue then section 6.3 of this Contract will apply.

8.1 We will deliver the goods to the location detailed in the Quotation.
8.2 In case we fall into receivership, administration or bankruptcy before we deliver the goods to
you we will insure the money you pay us in advance. We will also ensure that our guarantees will be
honoured should we fall into receivership, administration or bankruptcy during the term of the
installer’s guarantee.

The Client Account
8.4 We may place your deposit and advance payment made before the goods have been delivered
to your property in a special ‘client’ or other third party account or use the protected payment
scheme which the Code administrator has arranged.. This money can only be used for work carried
out under this Contract.
8.4.1 If we should fall into receivership, administration or bankruptcy then the money in that
dedicated bank account (or held within the protected payment scheme) will be returned to you or
passed to another supplier who will complete the work.
8.5 Where your money has been used to make specific purchases on your behalf, then legal title to
those goods, or the proportion of them you have paid for, will pass to you. We must either deliver
them to you or label them as belonging to you. Where we store the goods then we must keep them
separate from our own goods and those of third parties. We must also keep the goods stored,
protected, insured and identified as your property until they are delivered to you. You must be able
to inspect the goods and/or repossess them.
8.6 Goods belonging to us may be delivered to the site. If the contract is terminated early for
reasons detailed in section 9.3 of this Contract then, with reasonable notice, you must return and
deliver the goods to us. If this happens then we will reimburse you if any of your money was used to
purchase a proportion of the goods. If you do not return the goods to us, we retain the right to take
legal proceedings to recover the goods or their value.
8.6.1 If the Contract is terminated early for reasons detailed under section 9.4 of this Contract then,
with reasonable notice, you must return and deliver the goods to us. If this happens you may have to
pay compensation for reasonable costs or losses reasonably incurred. This may be deducted from
any deposit or further advance payment you have already made.
8.7 Until ownership of the goods passes to you, you must:
store the goods separately in such a way that they remain readily identifiable as our property;
not destroy, deface or obscure any identifying mark or packaging on or relating to the goods; and,
maintain the goods in a satisfactory condition.

9.1 Your rights to a cancellation period are detailed in sections 1.4 and 1.5 of this contract.
9.1.1 If you cancel this Contract after the period referred to in sections 1.4 of this Contract then you
may have to pay compensation for costs or losses reasonably incurred. We will try to keep those
costs to a minimum. We have a right to retain all or part of your deposit and further advance
payment, if made, as a contribution.
9.1.2 If you want the work to start during the cancellation period referred to in section 1.4 then you
must request this in writing and sign the request. If we start the work on the installation and you
later decide to cancel the contract within the cancellation period described in section 1.4 then you
may be responsible for the costs of the goods and services already supplied and for making good the
9.2 If there is a serious delay to the delivery of goods or installation for reasons that are outside your
control then you will be entitled to cancel the contract and receive a full refund. [Supply of Goods
and Services Act 1982].
9.3 Additionally, if we are in serious breach of our obligations as detailed in this Contract then you
have a right to:
cancel the contract and receive an appropriate refund; or,
request a repair or a replacement; or,
ask for compensation.
You can seek those remedies if what we supply or install is faulty, incorrectly described or not fit for
purpose. You cannot seek those remedies if you change your mind about the contract or you decide
you no longer want some or all of the components.
Our rights
9.4 If you are in serious breach of your obligations as set out in this Contract and you fail to remedy
that breach within 14 days of receiving written notice from us about that breach, then we have a
right to cancel the contract. We must give you reasonable opportunity to put right the alleged
9.5 If we suffer a loss as a result of your breach of contract, we will take reasonable steps to prevent
the loss from getting worse. If your breach of contract leads to a cancellation then you may have to
pay compensation for reasonable costs or losses reasonably incurred.

Our Testimonials

What A Joy Home
Energy Group Are!

I had tried other renewable companies from the Yorkshire area but found them to be too expensive & very slow with there replies. I found Home Energy Group and I couldn’t of been happier! They were the most competitive on price but most of all they were polite, patient and was always on the end of the phone to answer any of my questions. I have now recommended Home Energy Group to all my friends at our Local golf club”

Dr Ross Adley, Skipton, North Yorkshire

Best service ever

I had already had a PV system installed and was looking for battery backup. The company who installed my solar PV offered me the Sofar Solar AC battery storage system but a friend of mine told me about the LUX Power AC battery storage system. After looking around on the Internet I found Home Energy Group who was offering the LUX system. Not was I only right to go for the LUX as this product was clearly better then the Sofar product but Home Switch was also cheaper then my PV installer! Home Switch was also professional with there approach towards me and the installers were very friendly
