Installing solar is a pretty obvious choice, in fact it’s such a good option that 2.3 million Australian families already power their homes with solar. But what most homeowners don’t realise is that they’re massively underutilising the potential of their solar system.
That’s where batteries come in – by adding a battery storage system, most people can increase their solar usage up to 68.6% (and in some cases even higher). There’s just one problem with batteries, they’re normally a little bit too expensive and don’t always make financial sense. But, things are changing!
We have partnered with Social Energy, a smart energy retailer designed to make batteries make better financial sense so that we can help drive a green transition that pays off for families across Australia. When you connect a solar and battery system to Social Energy’s smart network, you can reduce your bills by up to 100%.

Introducing Social Energy
A better energy retailer for homes with solar
Founded seven years ago, Social Energy set out on a journey to create an energy company that rewarded its customers for playing their part in protecting our planet. After years of work, they launched in 2018 and have already built a community of thousands of homeowners with solar and batteries in the UK. After becoming the world’s largest specialist energy retailer for homes with smart solar and battery technology, they’re now helping thousands of Australian families start saving and creating a better energy future.
Social Energy believe that the best way to make a real change is to make green energy that pays. That’s why they’ve developed market-leading technology and energy plans that help you reduce your bills, so that you can spend your money on the things that really matter.
Start saving with Zero cost**
Solar, battery & energy, all for less than your current energy bill.
With simple pay monthly packages thousands of homeowners can pay for their solar and battery system with the savings that they make!
- Own your system and secure your energy supply
- Save from day one
- $0 out of pocket
When you purchase a 6.6KW solar system, 11.6kWh battery and join Social Energy’s feed-in tariff
Example 100% saving for a home in NSW with a bill of $2,131 installing the above system, could save $2,182 in their first year, for $14,000
‘Zero cost’ and ‘$0 out of pocket’ refer to a package whereby the total cost of the new energy bill with solar, battery storage and Social Energy, combined with the finance cost of the associated hardware and installation, equate to less than the existing energy bill that the customer pays. This is not available to all customers and is dependent upon existing energy usage and eligibility for the Empowering Homes Program finance package.

Solar Batteries are now very affordable

A $0 Energy Bill. How is that Possible?
Here’s how we can do it, for example with customers who have a $2,131 energy bill per year installing a 6.6kW solar system and 11.6kWh battery at home and joining our Social Energy Better Together tariff.
Making the Most of the Sun
Solar is a great first step to reducing your energy bills. But you likely don’t use all of your power whilst the sun is shining. With a solar battery system, you can reduce your bills day and night, by avoiding buying expensive energy from power companies.
Leading Products at Incredible Prices
Getting the best savings relies on fitting the right products…but often the best products are out of reach. With our partners Social Energy you get the best of both worlds, with our exclusive Duracell battery range, you can get a leading product at super low prices. That means you save more and pay less!
Get Paid More for Your Solar
When you’re not using your solar, your energy retailer will buy it back from you…at Social Energy as the only Energy Retailer built for homes with solar and batteries, we’ll pay you more than the average energy retailers.
*When you purchase a 6.6kW solar system, 11.6kWh battery and join Social Energy’s feed-in tariff. Example 100% saving for a home with a bill of $2,131 installing the above system, could save $2,182 in their first year, for $14,000.
