I’m building a house and it won’t be finished until after December 2019. What happens?

While SUSI has not put a cap on their financial contribution, but we all do have a set time in which to sign on. We need to have people signed on and installations finished by 31 December 2019.

Unfortunately, this may affect some people. SUSI have a definitive 10-year period with Plico Energy that begins 2019 and ends 2029. We can assist as many households and businesses who want to join, and SUSI will finance all of them.

However, to provide SUSI with a clean exit in 2029, all households and businesses need to be signed on by the end of 2019.

Can the inverter be installed on the outside of my house?

Definitely. The system is weather rated for outside use, however we do recommend that you install it in a garage or under a protected eave to limit any damage to ensure longevity.

What happens to the profits made by the Virtual Power Bank?

When profits come back to Plico Energy, the community – through their local Project Committee – will decide how they will use these additional funds. This is called the Community Fund.

How can I get involved?

We’re currently recruiting households and businesses based in Dunsborough and Yallingup to the Plico Movement.

However, we’re also in discussions with households and businesses from Bunbury through to Augusta about setting up their own Virtual Power Bank. Depending on numbers, we expect systems to roll out across 2019 and 2020.

Once you have joined the movement, our Plico people will be in contact with the next steps – including signing the Contract Agreement.
