Our Battery Saver plan is an ideal option for those who want to maximise value from their solar and battery system. As homes and energy systems become more integrated and connected, Virtual Power Plant (VPP) technology is key to realising our sustainable energy future. VPPs provide reliability to the grid during peak times and extreme weather events.

To be eligible for the ActewAGL Battery Saver plan, you must:

  • Be a residential customer with an eligible Tesla Powerwall 2 or SolarEdge/LG Chem HV battery storage system operating at your electricity supply address.
  • Agree to the terms and conditions of participating in the ActewAGL Virtual Power Plant outlined in the ActewAGL Virtual Power Plant Services Agreement.

If you are considering ActewAGL for your electricity or are already a customer, we encourage you to explore potential savings by comparing plans online or calling us on 13 14 93.

What is VPP technology?

A Virtual Power Plant (VPP) is a network of residential solar and battery systems, connected via smart technology. VPP technology allows excess or unused energy to flow from one home to another, supporting the electricity grid during peak times of the day.

VPPs improve grid stability, encourage the use of more renewable energy and give solar and battery owners the opportunity to further monetise their excess energy—it’s a win-win.

The VPP will never completely discharge your battery, it improves energy reliability and sustainability for you and your local community and it allows you to gain further return from your energy investment—in addition to your feed-in tariff.
