Virtual Power Plant (VPP) Plan Comparison

VPP Plan COmparison

Got battery storage and looking to compare VPP Plans?

A Virtual Power Plant (VPP) brings together hundreds or thousands of household batteries storing excess solar energy to create the effect of a massive battery. The VPP technology enables this stored energy to be released back into the grid during periods of high demand. Very quickly, networks can access cost-effective renewable energy to meet demand. In return, energy retailers provide incentives and payments for storage owners, helping to offset the cost of their system. You’ll find a comparison below of the leading VPP programs in each state.

Each VPP program requires a compatible battery setup. That’s because batteries have different protocols, VPPs will only support some brands and models capable of responding to communications to discharge energy back into the grid. So, if you have a specific VPP scheme in mind, you’ll want to check this out before buying your battery.
