Powow PPA Plan Options

To celebrate the launch of the Powow PPA Plan, we’re offering a standard 6.6kW panels + 10kWh battery system for a low monthly price.

And if that doesn’t sound like enough power for your family, you can supersize the system. If you’ve got the roof space, you can install this significantly larger system for a monthly payment only slightly higher! Our massive 13kW panel + 10kWh battery system can completely obliterate your power bill. You’ll have plenty of power to charge your EV and there’s a good chance your bills will be going into credit regularly.

Our Powow PPA Plan is available for households in NSW as of February 22, 2021 and households in QLD as of April 8, 2021!

It’s the perfect option for homeowners looking to reap the benefits of solar panels and batteries — with the peace of mind that everything is taken care of for you.

NSW Case Study

Let’s use a real world example to show how the Powow PPA plan can benefit a young family. ShineHub customers Paul and Belinda were starting their family last year. With a newborn on the way, they purchased and moved into a new home and started getting it ready to raise a family.

One of the first things they noticed was the electricity bill was already $583/qtr. Once they had a few kids and added a pool in the backyard, they saw that bill rising to a place they didn’t want it to go.

To solve their energy problem Paul and Belinda ordered a 6.6W panel + 10kWh battery on the PPA plan. Now that it’s installed, they were blown away by the results.

Not only did they get huge savings – their electricity company actually owed THEM money at the end of the quarter! The image below shows the ‘total amount due’ to be $103.09 in credit!

As a result, they will have all the power they need as they add kids and a pool to their family. All while knowing they have a low, predictable energy cost to power their family’s future with sunshine.

FAQs about the Powow PPA Plan

Do solar power systems come with a full warranty and guarantee?

Yes. Installation, maintenance, repairs, and cleaning are taken care of for you so that you don’t have any surprise costs down the track. This includes replacement of the solar panels, inverter, or batteries if they stop working at any point. You can rest easy knowing that any unexpected costs will be taken care of for you.

What does the Powow PPA Plan cover?

Everything to make the system work properly! We’re responsible for maintenance, monitoring, service, and equipment replacement for the whole system throughout the plan. Think of this as a full system warranty and insurance rolled into one — if the panels or batteries stop delivering power to your home, we’ll fix it at our cost, and your monthly payments will be credited for the days the system wasn’t working properly.

We want you to be 100% confident in your decision to switch to solar and battery power for your home. Enjoy the peace of mind that the Powow PPA Plan can offer you!

Do I have to pay if the system stops working?

You get credited for every day the system is not working until it gets fixed. The installation comes with 24/7 monitoring, so as soon as an issue occurs, we’ll be informed and get it fixed for you at no cost. You can also log into the online app yourself to see how things are going at any time.

Our system offers full transparency so that you’ll always know exactly what’s going on with the solar power system.

Can I expand or upgrade my system down the track?

The Powow PPA Plan makes it easy to expand or upgrade the solar power system down the track. You can make all sorts of changes, such as adding extra panels or batteries. Simply let us know what you want to do, and we can update your monthly payment without having to go through another application.

Make whatever improvements you want to make — it’s up to you!

What products do you use?

We only use top-tier products because, at the end of the day, we are responsible for fixing anything that breaks, and paying for any replacement parts. One of the benefits of the Powow PPA Plan is that you don’t have to worry about any replacement costs during the life of the term. And, if you choose to own the system at the end, you get to own all that top-shelf equipment!

Who handles installations?

We only partner with local solar installers who are trained and certified in solar panel and battery installations.

Once installation is completed, we’ll do a quality review check to ensure everything was done properly — including a performance analysis of the solar and battery system via the energy monitoring app that comes free with every system.

Can I purchase the system before the end of the term?

Absolutely! If you want to purchase the system early, you can do so without penalty and at a fair price. This is all outlined in the quote you receive before signing on.

What happens if I move?

The application is very easy — you just need a copy of your electricity bill, a government-issued Photo ID, and a rates notice. As long as your electricity bill is paid up to date and you own your house, you have a very good chance of being approved.
