Get rewarded with a smart approach to your solar energy
The PowerSavers Smart Solar plan rewards you for reducing the amount of solar energy exported to the grid during times of excessive solar generation. This plan ends on 31 March 2023.
Why should you join?
Customers who join the Smart Solar plan will receive $200 in gift cards for participating (a $40 Sign Up Bonus and $160 by the plan end date of 31 March 2023).
How does it work?
Your solar PV system will be accessed by Endeavour Energy on what we call ‘Event Days’ only, with the aim of limiting the amount of solar energy exported to the grid, for up to 4 hours, during times of excessive solar generation. The limit will be implemented through your solar PV inverter. This does not prevent your solar PV system from supplying energy to support your home’s energy needs on Event days.
We will notify you of Event Days via an email and/or SMS before any export limits are applied. Endeavour Energy will select up to 20 of these Event Days in total from when your participation in the plan is confirmed until the plan ends on 31 March 2023. The days chosen will be based on when we expect a series of hot or cold days but will exclude weekends and public holidays.
