How to get involved
If you've already got solar panels which export around 2MWh per year, or are interested in getting started on your solar journey with Origin, the VPP could be ideal for you. Once your system and the battery are hooked up, we'll be able to remotely charge it, or discharge energy from it back into the grid. For example, we could do this during periods of high demand.
If we do discharge power from your battery, we'll work out how much you've spent to buy the same amount of electricity from the grid as a result. We'll calculate this taking into account any discounts and feed in tariffs you receive, then apply it as a credit towards the charges on your electricity bill at least once a year.
The great thing is, we’ll guarantee you a $300 credit in the first year to cover for any such costs – even if you’ve spent less. In the unlikely chance we calculate that you’ve spent more, we’ll give you a credit to cover the entire amount.
