How our VPP works
It’s possible to optimise your battery system, be rewarded and help Mother Earth all with the one program.
You sign up to our VPP
When you sign up to our VPP, you’ll make the electricity in your battery system available to us. By allowing us to monitor, control and manage your battery system we can connect it to our network of batteries that can be dispatched to support community energy demand and you get rewarded for it. As part of the Powershop VPP we’ll monitor, control and manage your battery system.
We optimise your battery
We will optimise and use your battery by charging and discharging it at times to support the energy market and community energy demand. When you sign up to our VPP we’ll always leave you a reserve in your battery for your household use to give you peace of mind. Your home reserve for the Powershop VPP is currently set at 20% of battery storage capacity. This reserve amount may change in the future and you’ll be notified in advance, usually by email.
You enjoy the perks
In return, you’ll receive a VPP reward up to $40 applied to your electricity account each month, depending on the size of your battery. And you’ll have access to the brand new Powershop Virtual Power Plant app giving you detailed insights like never before on your battery performance.
Get insights from the Powershop Virtual Power Plant App
Our VPP software displayed through the app will predict your household consumption and determine when to charge and store power. It also predicts your future solar generation by sussing out local weather patterns. Pretty clever hey!
