Get the right electricity plan

Want absolute control of your power bill while knowing what to expect by the end of a billing cycle? With Reposit’s smart energy management you can have it all.

Reposit knows what electricity plan you’re on and will store power in your battery when electricity prices are lowest, ready for you to use when prices are high – minimising your need to buy electricity from the grid during these times.

Reposit can pre-charge your battery using cheap off-peak energy if you’re on a Time of Use tariff. Outsmart the electricity companies by taking advantage of TOUs.

Reposit Review: Our consumption is now 99% from our panels

Get on a Time of Use tariff (TOU), it’s when you’re charged at different rates of cost per unit, one kilowatt hour, (1kWh) of electrical energy you’d use depending on the time of day.

This means you’re in the driver’s seat, not relying on the grid, while outsmarting the big energy companies!

This is what a typical TOU plan looks like:

(Each state and territory will have different plans and tariffs -you can find an overview of what electricity tariffs might be available to you here.)

Reposit is your key to the electricity market, become an energy trader

Here’s how:

When electricity companies fail to meet demand or electricity prices fluctuate, Reposit customers can come to the rescue - to form an orchestrated Virtual Power Plant (VPP), essentially preventing blackouts and stabilising our electricity grid.

VPPs are a cluster of distributed generation systems that can deliver peak load electricity or load-aware power generation at short notice.

Reposit VPPs by having a dispersed, distributed and shared energy production and supply, play a role in providing a secure, clean, reliable and cost-effective electricity grid.

When Reposit VPPs are activated, they sell energy and stability services to the National Electricity Market (NEM) through their compatible electricity company - being part of a Reposit VPP makes you an energy trader, right from your living room.

Reposit customers are paid GridCredits® for being part of the VPP and lending their services to the NEM.

Unique to Reposit Power, GridCredits® are a special battery feed-in-tariff reserved just for Reposit customers. GridCredits® are credits to reduce your electricity bill.

You get GridCredits® in exchange for selling energy from your battery to the grid. The amount you get depends on your location, electricity plan and the size of your solar setup.

Reposit is always thinking of ways to optimise your solar battery setup, and on the right electricity plan you can sell the energy from your battery, making your power bill the lowest it can be.
