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.
(Remember to check to see if your bill is for one or two months and select the amount you pay for ONE month)

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.

"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."
"The system is great .. real easy to follow how your power is being used and a fantastic help line"
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.
“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.”
