Expect your next statement to hit you like a freight train from the 1st July with:
This crippling combo is impacting our solar customers, highlighting the urgency to provide an efficient solution, with financial longevity. Advanced lithium solar battery technology allow us to offer you a Winning Combo, saving you from gluttonous energy conglomerates and maximising on the power you are producing from your current solar system.
You may be thinking...
Thats a great question.
...And continue to!
Once upon a time, the rate at which you were exporting unused energy back to the grid was pretty reasonable. Your bills would have been very low, or even non-existent!
No problem = no battery solution required.
Over time, greedy energy retailers have started paying less and less for your renewably sourced electrons and charging more and more for their fossil fuelled ones. Hmm here comes the problem.
BIG problem: Bigger Quarterly Bill = YES: A Solar Lithium Battery Solution required please!
Since 2019, solar installations have gone through the roof … well, on the roof we should say.
An increased supply of sun power has equated to a lower buyback demand from the grid - hence the reduced FITs.
By 2030, the nation's small-scale solar generating capacity is expected to triple!
More evidence that FITs will remain low.
Thus, we circle back to the problem of high energy bills for solar owners.
(asides an outright abomination!)
Putting further rain clouds on solar owners' plans, in 2021, the Australian Energy Market Commission (AEMC) allowed electricity companies to start charging rooftop solar owners for exporting power to the grid!
Wait… Why are solar owners being penalised for using & supplying renewable energy?
The “reasoning” imposed reducing grid congestion and paying for upgrades. Essentially the excessive generation of energy is too much for the grid to handle and lack of storage started to become an issue.
Are solar lithium batteries the solution for you? Find out more.
It’s grinding your gears, our gears, not to mention Tom Gleeson’s gears (see video below)....
That your system’s efficiency has dropped as a result of energy price rises, solar tax and reduced FITs.
Whether you installed your system 5 years or 5 minutes ago, Smart Energy is here to ensure you are getting the most from your system!
Here’s how a cutting-edge solar battery can do just that:
Selling excess daytime solar back to the grid for pittance and buying back nighttime energy for a premium doesn’t make financial sense.
Store and use your excess solar energy & reduce your reliance on the grid to exponentially lower your electricity bill.
The Virtual Power Plant (VPP) Program
With a solar battery system, you are no longer an average energy customer. Special solar battery plans are available to help you further save money.

Take Power of Your Power!
When you store daytime energy & use it at night, you regain your power both literally and figuratively!
Not only are you improving the efficiency of your home system but by getting off-grid, you dodge the risk of future energy price hikes and fluctuating FITs.
Stay charged by being in charge!
There’s nothing worse than an unplanned blackout on that night you just need a hot shower, or have to cook dinner for three ravenous kids on your electric stove. Never mind the freezer full of food slowly melting in the background...
A home solar & battery system allows you to maintain power during an outage! Essential for your family's comfort and needs.
Increased Home Value
Solar and Batteries are one of the few high valued products out there that offer a swift return on investment, especially when it comes to add-value.
Panels alone can increase the appreciation of your property, but panels & a state of the art battery… let’s just say, if you sell down the line, watch the buyers come knocking!
Many birds, one stone; on top of all of the above points, save the planet!
The addition of a battery to a solar system, can help further reduce your carbon footprint.

Stick it to the grid by bingeing Netflix with the air con-cranking at night powered by the energy you produce and own!
