How our solarZero® energy service works
- A battery comes as standard with our solarZero® energy service. We own and manage this technology which includes one full battery replacement during the term of the agreement, at no extra cost to you.
- As part of our solar installation we wire your hot water cylinder so it can be switched on and off with the solarZero® app at times that make the most of your solar energy and reduce your grid power use.
- We have a team of energy advisors that work with you to help reduce your overall energy costs. We provide you with a personalised energy plan and regular updates to maximise your solar use and improve your home's energy efficiency.
- Our solarZero® app allows you to monitor your home's energy use, solar generation and keeps track of how much energy your battery has stored. We also monitor the system for you.
- We own and manage the solar panels we install on your roof. That means you don't pay any product or installation costs for the technology, including the battery.
- The solarZero® app works on your smartphone, tablet or computer, allowing you to monitor and control energy use in your home remotely.
- We manage the system for you for 20 years. This includes repairs and any necessary upgrades.
- solarZero® gives you access to exclusive wholesale spot prices for 100% renewable electricity. Plus, our buyback price guarantee ensures that when you sell solar power you’re paid the same rate it costs you to buy energy, excluding network charges and GST.
