You can get panels, an inverter and a battery installed then start saving immediately from your next bill* and be part of the only 100% managed solar service with proactive support and worry-free service for the lifetime of your system.
Fill in this form to get a quick, accurate quote on how much you’ll save from next month by installing a Plico energy system with Solar Panels, Battery & Inverter. There’s no obligation and you will discover, based on a tailored energy plan for your home, exactly how much you’ll be saving while creating your own power.
You make it on your roof. You store it in your battery. Your family uses it. This is your energy.
Similar to other solar systems, Plico still allows you to feed back into the grid whenever you’re creating more power than you can use or store and you get paid for it by your energy retailer (eg. Synergy).
A Plico system has a built in backup circuit that will keep your lights and power on even if the grid is down for days.
Know that slightly guilty feeling when you or the kids leave the lights on? Say goodbye to that feeling forever.
Instead of costing you money and burning extra coal for no reason, the Plico solar system provides you with clean energy to use when you or your family need it.
The Plico community is unique because as it grows, so does the likelihood that your bill goes down.
Instead of having no say over our energy costs, as the Plico community grows, our ability to negotiate with the network on the provision of energy services to the grid in a managed fashion increases. This means as a collective – we gain the ability to provide valuable services to the energy company. Which in turn means you will make more savings as a Plico member than you would separately.
We’re not like any other solar company you’ve seen before. In fact, we are not a ‘solar company’, we are a community of members creating an amazing, forward thinking renewable energy grid which helps each member create and consume their own energy while helping to evolve and support the energy network.

"The system is great .. real easy to follow how your power is being used and a fantastic help line"
“Solar has previously been very transactional – get in, get out, a lot of bad behaviour, poor after sales services and bankruptcy. Households are the future – this is what the modelling shows.
Help the households manage the grid and they will save money while becoming the stable, renewable grid of the future. When we started Plico we treated this problem as though we were building an actual energy company.
With the structures we’ve built in Plico, we can now efficiently deploy, efficiently service, provide best in class support and get 75c of every dollar the community makes back to the members to keep bringing down that weekly rate.
That’s what the grid of the future looks like.”
