Further monetise your solar and battery system with Virtual Power Plant technology.

Updated.

Maximise the potential of your energy investments with a plan tailored for solar and battery owners in the capital region.

As homes (and energy systems) become more integrated and connected than ever before, Virtual Power Plant (VPP) technology is at the heart of our future.

The ActewAGL VPP plan

As a participant in the ActewAGL VPP plan*, you can utilise leading-edge technology to increase your savings and functionality, including:

  • a great feed-in tariff rate (10c per kWh for your first 10kWh)
  • 9% less^ than the electricity reference price—equal to half your daily supply charges FREE*
  • energy advice and assistance from our local team.

^This offer is based on a residential customer who consumes 6,100 kWh a year in the Evoenergy network. The lowest annual price is $1,902. This offer is also based on a residential customer who consumes 4,600 kWh a year in the Essential Energy network. The lowest annual price is $1,630. Your bill will differ based on your actual usage. This offer is also based on a residential customer who consumes 4,900 kWh a year in the Endeavour Energy network. The lowest annual price is $1,449.

  • 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 further monetise your energy investment—in addition to your feed-in tariffs.

  • To be eligible for the ActewAGL VPP plan you will need to:

    • Be a residential customer with an eligible battery storage system (Tesla Powerwall 2 or SolarEdge/LG Chem HV), operating at their electricity supply address.
