No More Coal

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.

How Much Will I Save with Plico?

How much do you pay MONTHLY on your electricity bill?

The Plico Energy Community Growth

As the community grows, so do the savings.

When the community grows, we all win

As the Plico energy community grows, there is more total energy to sell back to the grid, giving us greater leverage in the provision of energy services. This translates directly into a lower weekly rate & greater savings.

Will Your Energy Usage Grow Overtime?

As your usage grows, so do the savings.

The more energy you use, the more you save

if your household electricity usage goes up over the next 10 years (because you get an electric vehicle, add a pool, extend your home, add another person to your household etc.) your savings will immediately increase. A Plico System is also modular & can grow with your energy needs.

everybody else having a blackout? Not you.

Take Control Of Your Energy Back From The Power Company

It’s time to be in complete control of your own power generation – with the peace of mind of having your power company as your backup. 

Sick of your power company dictating the terms? Once you’ve got a solar system with a battery, you will be able to manage if they turn the power off.

Spend more than $150 a month on electricity?

Save Money On Your Electricity Bill With An Easy To Understand Flat Weekly Rate Of $36.50

Revenue generated from the Plico community providing energy services to the grid on behalf of the members are used to offset your normal weekly rate over time. 

The more members that join Plico, the more likely it will be that we are able to provide services to the grid.

Solar Panels + Battery + Inverter + 100% Managed = Plico

$36.50 a week too much to pay?

How about $35, $32.50 or even less than $30 per week?

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. 

How is Plico Different to Other Solar Companies?

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.

Wondering If a New Plico Solar System Might Be Right For You?

Do you answer yes to any of these questions?

Tap on any of the questions that interest you...

Want to make your own power?

Do you like the idea of having most everything in your house being powered day or night from energy that you create from the sun while being unaffected by blackouts?

create power from the sun during the day.
Store it in your battery. use it anytime.

The Plico energy system includes solar panels, inverter and battery. By installing it, you will be making your own power and no longer be wholly reliant on the grid and the electricity company’s whims.

Warranty worries?

Worried about what might happen if your solar panels, inverter or battery malfunctions anytime in the next 25 years?

100% Managed and The Only "Worry Free" Proactive Service agreement in the Market

Become part of something bigger and share in the mission of bringing renewable energy to your community

A portion of the profits from the Plico project go to support the local community. We help build playgrounds, halls or whatever else local community’s need. As part of the Plico community you’ll get to vote on these!

Not considering solar in case you move?

Finding it difficult to think about adding a solar system in case you move in the next 10 years?

Potentially Moving? You’ll still save with Plico

If you buy a regular solar system, it can take years to pay it off so if you sell your house before that’s done, you will never actually save money on it. With Plico, you only pay a weekly rate so your bill changes immediately, and the contract can be transferred to the new owners.

Worried about solar company bankruptcies?

Are you concerned about a solar company you choose going bankrupt or not following through on their guarantee?

No Dodgy Solar Company Concerns

The Australian solar industry has been plagued with companies going bankrupt and solar owners being left high and dry when they need support. The Plico energy community directly own the company that operates the systems and it is also backed by a $1 billion asset fund to ensure security for everyone.

Going to be renovating?

Could you be adding anything that uses a lot of energy in the next 10 years? For example, pool heating, an electric vehicle or a home extension?

A Solar System with Room to Grow

Your Plico system will grow to support more energy use. Need a bigger battery to support more energy? We can organise that. Need more panels to generate more power? We can do that too. That’s what being part of a 100% managed energy community means.

Perth, WA

"I have just had this installed on Wednesday, and I have been 95% using solar in my house, thanks to the battery. it makes a huge difference to using the system. I have managed to reach 95% with cloudy days and using the dryer and air-conditioning. Mainly because i was fully educated on how to use the system by JP. I can imagine how much energy it will produce in summer. I love the system, payment plan and the service. I would highly recommend."

"Since adding our Plico system, I’m much more energy savvy. Its great to understand how we are generating and using energy. The app is user friendly and I feel much more like I’m doing my bit for the planet."

ARE BATTERIES READY FOR SOLAR?

Waiting For Batteries To Get Better Before Installing Solar?

If you get a solar panel without a battery system and then add a battery later then you’ll be paying twice for installation.

While battery technology is evolving quickly, the grid is already struggling under ‘dumb’ solar being pumped in whenever it’s sunny in a particular suburb. 

The Problem With Dumb Solar

‘Dumb’ solar is excess energy that is pumped straight back into the grid from solar panels when no battery is present to store it. The problem is that the grid was not designed for millions of households to be pumping energy back into it. 

Plico Energy was designed to solve this issue. So you can be part of the solution, not the problem.

How Plico is Different

Plico members get the battery immediately when the solar system is installed and with only one installation needed. 

The Plico system is modular in nature, so at any time you can add more batteries at a lower cost than a complete installation – upgrades in the future will be possible, even encouraged, and will be used to augment (not replace) what you already have in place. Save from day one, save even more later!

As a Plico member you also get the advantage of being part of a community selling energy back to the grid instead of an individual. As it continues to grow, this provides the whole Plico community with leverage so you save more each month.

Plico are with you for the long haul & we'll do what it takes to keep your systems producing power

Plico members can choose to get new batteries for their systems after 10 years as part of the ongoing service agreement

Plico community members have 100% managed systems for the first 10 years and this can (optionally) continue from years 10-25 at less than $10 per week. 

If new technology is the answer to keeping your system running at an optimal level during the time we manage your system then that’s what we’ll look at.

    Another 10-25 years of service for peace of mind, updated technology and continued (or even increased) savings. Yep, we’ll be hanging around with you for 25 years if you choose.

Don't have solar yet? It's probably not your fault.

The solar industry can feel a bit like the 'wild west' but we're here to solve that.

Dodgy Solar Companies Going Bankrupt: SOLVED

While over 2 million households in Australia have solar panels installed now, there have been so many problems in the industry from dodgy solar companies going bankrupt to coal companies subtly working against solar in the industry.

Owned by members & Backed by Assets

Plico is owned by its community of members and backed by a $1 billion asset fund to ensure it continues to serve its members long into the future.

You’re being taxed by stealth: Solved

every time the network expands or has to do maintenance the costs are passed onto those buying power from the network. If you are buying power from them, you are being taxed by stealth.

Make your own energy on your roof & take back your power

By installing a Plico system with battery, you’ll be generating your own power instead of buying it from the grid, avoiding this stealth tax.

The Technical Jargon: Solved

It’s easy to learn a little about solar but then it’s hard not to be overwhelmed when you see the range of panels, inverters and battery systems available.

It's our responsibility that your system performs perfectly

Plico solves the jargon by providing a 100% managed solution for a flat weekly rate. You don’t need to worry about having the wrong brand of system or something breaking or being inefficient, that’s on us. We’re constantly monitoring your system and if there are any issues, we get them solved – whether that means replacing, adjusting or coming out to sit down with you to figure out the solution directly.

This is the perfect time

Now is The Time to Install a Plico Energy System

Batteries are gaining in popularity and there’s a race on for the batteries that are connecting to the grids.

The owners of these batteries will be part of a powerful energy machine that can work together to support the grid, community and get the biggest savings on their power bills. 

Want to go out on your own with a battery?

On your own, you’ve got a system with a computer in your battery, a computer in your control system and a computer in your inverter. You’re left to manage this yourself without any help – and you won’t be able to have any commercial relationships with the grid other than to pay for the basic offers available at the time.

We want you to be a part of the Plico community instead of being an individual with a battery. The future of the Australian energy system should be owned by you. This is why we started the Plico community.

Why Plico?

Brian Innes is the founder and technical director of Plico. He is the mastermind engineer behind the community battery system. Brian has been in the global energy space for the last 15 years, advising oil and gas, mining and the largest companies around the world how to be more efficient, renewable and what technologies they can bring to bear to make the planet a better place while saving money. 

For the 5 years before starting Plico he was at the Rocky Mountain Energy Institute, the world thought leader in energy usage, working out how the grid of the future could work better through value stacking, better distribution systems and bringing value to the household level.

Plico is different because we’re here for you and the community. We work with you to make sure Plico is a good fit in your situation It is up to us to help you understand because we’re going to be on-call if you have any questions or issues over the next ten years! We’re here whenever you need us. 
Plico Founder Brian Innes

“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.”

6. 100% Monitoring

Your entire system is immediately added to our 24/7 uptime monitoring so that if there are any issues over the next 10 years, we proactively reach out to you to get them solved.

How much will you save?

What Are Your Choices now?

If you like the idea of generating and consuming your own power then the question comes down to, when are you going to get your solar installed? 

You will likely spend over $25,000 on electricity from the grid

As electricity costs from the grid continue to rise, we project that most households will spend $25,000 – $30,000 over the next ten years. That money is going straight into electricity generation, the majority of which is from coal. 

Alternatively, join the Plico energy community, get a fully managed solar system with your own battery and start saving money from your next bill without having to worry about your energy generation needs over the next decade. 

You’ll be saving money, making your own power from the sun, helping your community and helping the planet change to a more renewable source of energy.
