The Evergen & Ausgrid Virtual Power Plant is a network of energy storage systems working together to provide energy to the grid when it’s needed most. Each home battery in the network is called upon to charge and/or release energy to the grid in times of need, referred to as 'events'.
When Evergen & Ausgrid activate signals to each home battery through Evergen technology, the stored energy in each of the batteries is released onto the grid. In return, participating homes are paid an incentive each time we call on their battery. If there is insufficient charge in your battery for the event, we will charge it up ahead of time using electricity drawn from the grid, at your usual tariff. This will enable you to participate in the event and earn the incentive.
