Our mission is to transition Australia to 100% renewables

We're firm believers in the power that everyday Aussies have to make a positive climate impact.

Our reliance on expensive and unreliable coal and gas has been behind one of the worst energy crises our country has ever seen. But within this crisis is an opportunity: the chance to rethink the way we power Australia today to transition faster to a renewable future.

150K

No. of solar batteries in Australian households

If every solar battery automatically charged with greener, cheaper energy and exported power back into the grid when demand peaked, they’d earn $962 (plus help put coal and gas in its place).

144M

How much we’d shift to solar battery owners in a year

By exporting power when the energy grid needs it, you can shift cash away from coal and gas. That’s more earnings for you, lower bills for Aussies everywhere, and less cash for coal and gas (yay)!

100K

Amount of carbon reduced in no. of cars taken off the road.

That’s right - 150,000 automated batteries could save the equivelent of 100,000 cars worth of C02 entering the atmosphere. So, are you ready to help accelerate the renewable revolution?
