Our Mission

We’re here to help transition the grid from coal

We're here to help transition the grid

Plico Energy was built with a single purpose in mind, to create a grass roots movement that solves the Energy Trilemma (Cleaner, cheaper and more reliable 24/7 energy) so we can rapidly displace our coal dominated energy supply.

Plico Energy began by the people, for the people. We see ourselves as a Market Disrupter: we’re offering something different.

We are focused on two key things:

  • Ensuring that Plico Members make and use their own energy day and night
  • Ensure the systems we install can help the grid to be more stable.

By putting a battery in every Plico home we are collectively building the largest grid-scale controllable battery in the SWIS which will speed up the transition.

Consumers don’t have to wait for government policy change to take action on climate change. The solution is available now, and the quickest way to address climate change is to reduce carbon emissions in the energy sector.

The future of the energy industry is here.

A Grid Scale Battery Plant

Virtual Power Plants with Grid-Scale Batteries can:

  • Improve household and grid reliability
  • Reduce peaks during energy periods in the morning and afternoon
  • Provide a place to store excess wind energy at night
  • Assist networks with voltage issues
  • Provide stability services to energy markets.

Energy as a Service

In today’s world, many organisations are moving to a service business models, rather than consumers purchasing an outright product. Examples include Spotify (music and podcasts), Uber (transport) and Netflix (subscription on-demand TV).

Instead of buying our cutting-edge battery solar solution outright, Plico Members are buying into a service – the equipment, maintenance and service are all-inclusive and serviced for life.

Plico offers more than a cleaner, cheaper and more reliable energy source; we’re also helping people manage and get the most out of the assets installed in their homes.

We provide our Members with the tools to understand their energy usage and, as a result, dramatically improve their carbon footprint.

Why Plico

  • You’ll create up to 90% clean energy from your rooftop via panels, battery and software
  • You can sell any excess energy you don’t use back to the grid
  • You save money immediately with low upfront costs
  • You have full black out protection
  • You have a fully serviced and maintained system so you don’t have to worry about it
  • You own the company that will control and make income off a large Grid-Scale battery
  • Together we shape the future of the energy industry and put the power back into your hands.

Join….A Business Built for Life

Our business model is built to last. With $50 million invested by Swiss Infrastructure fund manager, SUSI Partners, Plico Energy will change the face of the energy industry for decades to come.

The creation of the unique Plico Energy business model means we can provide our systems at minimal upfront cost due to equity funding from SUSI Partners.  This debt free business model means SUSI Partners will transfer all ownership of DCEP Inc (registered Not-For-Profit Association) to Plico members upon exit after 10 years.

Key Advantages

The key advantages of the Plico model over the status quo include:·      

  • A unique contract structure developed with considerable focus on being fair and reasonable for all parties. Fundamentally the contract is with a company that you collectively own.
  • The VPP is comprised of fully serviced and maintained equipment for the duration of the 10-year contract and beyond, eliminating bill shock and equipment and maintenance costs.
  • It provides an opportunity to become an “owner” of the business and receive the benefits the group generates, or exit and own the assets
  • Be part of an energy company that is on the side of the consumer and will advocate and act on behalf of the members in negotiations and discussions with government agencies and industry bodies
