Customers who are worried about not being able to find cheap energy deals might like to compare energy tariffs online while making their home more efficient.
Chayley Collis, marketing manager at Green Building Store, noted that there is a lot of interest in energy efficient products from homeowners.
"We're also finding that, while there is little public sector building at the moment, private homeowners, social landlords and self builders are really driving low energy building," she explained.
However, the first priority when building or renovating a property is to make the fabric of the building energy efficient, such as by fitting insulation rather than adding bolt-on micro renewables, Ms Collis said.
"It is more cost effective to stop using energy in the first place, and the emphasis should be more on insulation and making homes use less energy."
Her comments follow a report from the Guardian suggesting solar panel installation is becoming increasingly attractive to householders.
