On days of peak-power demand, Australian power companies have to fire-up expensive fossil fuel power plants to make more electricity. These demand spikes drive up the cost for everyone (and they’re also terrible for the environment).
What if they could instead draw power from another source that’s clean, available and totally renewable? With your home battery being part of our Virtual Power Plant, the power companies can get instant on-demand green power from the group of battery owners (and pay you a premium for it).
If you’ve got a compatible battery system at home or are looking to get one as part of our SA virtual power plant launch, we can help you make a profit from it.
ShineHub’s ground-breaking technology puts the power to
share in your hands.
Using our free online app you can easily join a virtual power plant in your area – and start enjoying extra savings from your solar battery. Other providers do this, but you have to buy expensive equipment and often, be tied into a long-term contract.
With ShineHub, it’s $0 cost to join, leave anytime.
Start maximising the benefit of having solar at home with us by generating yourself a yearly benefit of up to $300^.
Our software monitors your power usage and spare capacity 24/7, and pays you a benefit if Powershop (our energy retail partner) draws power from your batteries.
We’ve set up our virtual power plant so that you’re always making money every time your battery is discharged for the virtual power plant. This is quite unlike other offers where the provider can draw all your power, provide a small payment around $0.10/kWh, and then make you pay full rates at night time.
Even if your battery is fully drained with the ShineHub VPP, you’ll still be better off with ShineHub as you’ll get between $0.379/kWh to $7.07/kWh for your power (this is the VPP payment + the normal $0.10/kWh solar feed in payment).
There are a few different ways you can pay for your new solar energy solution.

According to the World Energy Council, “ …the total annual solar radiation falling on the earth is more than 7, 500 times the world’s total annual primary energy consumption of 450 Exa Joules”.
That’s a HUGE amount of available power that’ll never run out.
At ShineHub, we’re helping whole communities of Australians to take advantage of clean, renewable solar energy. Through our community solar programs (bulk-buy solar deals in your suburb), lease-to-own solar systems and our Virtual Power Plants, we’re changing the way Aussies get access to electricity.
Solar and batteries are a fantastic investment in your family’s energy future, but joining a community VPP takes that advantage to a whole new level. 70,000 homeowners are expected to get a battery installed this year, so when are you getting yours?Get a Free Quote
