On 25 July 2018 Thomson Reuters Foundation reported:
Solar panels and smart batteries could help cut electricity bills by almost half for people on the Isles of Scilly, a British energy storage provider said as it launched a renewable energy programme on the group of Cornish islands. The Smart Energy Islands project aims to slash climate-changing emissions, improve the power supply and lower costs for 'fuel-poor' residents of five inhabited islands, 45 km (28 miles) off England's southwest coast, energy firm Moixa said.
