Join the Plico Movement
From $36.50 per week, create and consume your own energy thanks to our battery-driven Virtual Power Plant
How it works
Solar energy is only part of the solution. By introducing battery inverter technology, Plico Energy gives you the ability to achieve up to 90% renewable energy consumption.
Australia is one of the most sun drenched countries in the world, with WA receiving the most sunlight across the country.
It’s widely known solar energy is a clean way to power your home or business that benefits the environment. There are no direct greenhouse gas emissions because the energy is made from sunlight rather than burning fossil fuels.
While the number of homes and businesses with photovoltaic (PV) panels is rising, they don’t solve the problems caused by unmanaged solar or provide power when the sun isn’t shining.
Enter Battery Inverter systems.
In partnership with solar panels, battery systems store the energy collected during the day so that it can be used during times when sunlight isn’t available, and contribute to a community Virtual Power Plant (VPP).
This collective power essentially provides support to the traditional energy grid and benefits all.
Battery-driven Virtual Power Plants can:
- Improve grid reliability
- Reduce peak energy periods in the morning and afternoon, and
- Assist with voltage issues
This is particularly effective during times of power outages with the battery system able to continue functioning during ‘black outs’, giving Members peace of mind.
With systems starting from just $36.50 per week – about the cost of your daily coffee – it’s more affordable than ever to help Make Energy Green Again!
Our Solar Battery Solutions
Plico Energy utilises the best technology available to the industry and continues to monitor and research emerging technologies as they are introduced to market.
Each standard installation includes:
- 5KVA Redback Inverter System
- 6.6kW Suntech 275w Solar PV (Photovoltaics) Panels
- 7.2kW Pylontech (LiFePo4) Battery
One solar battery solution can generate over 30kwh of energy per day via the solar panels, while the battery system (made up of three batteries) can store up to 7.2kWh per day which will get most houses through the night. However, extra batteries are available if your nighttime energy consumption requires it.
How do I know what’s right for me?
If you’re currently paying between $300 to $550 for your energy usage per cycle, it’s likely you’re consuming anywhere between 14-30 units of energy per day. That makes you a perfect candidate to join the Plico Movement and start saving. One solar battery system will cost you $36,50 per week – that’s it!
If your energy bill is more than $550 per cycle, you will be consuming more than 30 units of energy per day and therefore you’re better suited to getting two solar battery solutions to cover your energy needs, costing you $73 per week.
I seem to use more energy at night than during the day…
If you’re more of a homebody at night, you can add an additional battery for just $3.50 per week, which will give you up to 9.6kW of storage each day. So, if you have one solar battery solution, you’ll pay $40 per week while two solutions with two additional batteries will cost $80 per week.
Should I still expect a bill from Synergy?
For the time being, yes. As our solar battery systems don’t disconnect you completely from the grid, you’ll be charged a service fee of approximately $1 per day, plus any energy that you’ve consumed during that cycle. Therefore, the more energy you create and consume from your solar battery solution, the less you will draw from the traditional climate-harming grid – saving you money and the planet!
The Redback Smart Hybrid is an Australian designed system, which combines the inverter, batteries and software into an easy to use all-in-one system.
The system is easy to manage from your smartphone or tablet, and looks great in or outside your home. Plus, it’s fast to install saving you on upfront costs.
Suntech Solar Panels
Founded in 2001, Suntech is a respected solar photovoltaic manufacturer across the world, and is engaged in the Research & Development and production of crystalline silicon solar cells and modules.
Founded in October 2009, Pylontech’s products and solutions have been widely deployed in batteries for high-end vehicles, cloud computing system power backup, telecom power backup, new energy storage systems and electric vehicles.
With self-developed core technologies in the cathode material, battery cell and BMS (battery management system), Pylontech is one of just a few companies that has vertically integrated the whole lithium battery industrial chain.
