Virtual Power Plant
Join our Virtual Power Plant and be rewarded
Our Virtual Power Plant, or VPP for short, is a network of connected solar batteries that can be coordinated like a pop-up power plant.
Together, the energy drawn from each solar battery can provide a large bank of controllable solar energy. This solar energy can help stabilise the electricity grid and reduce reliance on coal power. It helps create a future where energy is more affordable and renewable.
Through the South Australian Government’s Retailer Energy Productivity Scheme (REPS), and by joining our VPP, you could reduce your home’s energy consumption and save money.
You can purchase a solar battery bundle, a solar battery or add your existing solar battery to our VPP, and we’ll reward you for it.
Power your home day and night
Want a solar system and solar battery? Going solar doesn’t have to be complicated. A solar battery bundle gives your access to everything you need to make future-proofing your home easy.
Bundle your solar system with a solar battery and get the rewards of generating your own energy faster. Use your own solar energy and help reduce your bill even after the sun sets. It’ll help you decrease your reliance on the grid helping create a brighter, renewable future for your community.
Right now, you can get up to $1,500 off the upfront cost of your bundle by choosing to join our VPP.
Self-power your home
Want a solar battery? You can help power your way through day and night with a solar battery for your home. You’ll be able to store excess energy generated during the day to use when the sky is grey, or even when the sun goes down. Which can help reduce your energy bills and reliance on the grid.
Right now, you can get up to $1,500 off the upfront cost of a solar battery by choosing to join our VPP.
Earn more from your solar battery
Already got a solar battery? You can share your existing solar battery’s power by joining our VPP, our growing network of home solar batteries. Your solar battery will work with others to help take pressure off the grid when needed – like on days when there’s high energy demand. This way, you’ll help boost energy reliability for your community.
To say thanks, you’ll get up to $380 in bill credits over your first 12 months, then $70 quarterly credits after that.
How does REPS work?
Under REPS, we have compulsory annual targets that we can meet by undertaking approved energy productivity activities, such as installing energy efficient products. These activities help Improve energy productivity for households, businesses and the broader energy system.
Our VPP is an approved REPS activity for residential customers. We’ll use the credits created by you joining our Virtual Power Plant towards our annual targets. In return, this allows us to increase the VPP value to customers in South Australia.
