If you have solar and/or a battery, you’re in a prime position to start taking advantage of high and low wholesale prices with Amber.
If you have a battery you will tend to only need power from the grid at off-peak times — which is when wholesale prices are usually cheapest. You can also use your stored battery power during peak times when demand on the grid is higher and the wholesale price tends to be more expensive.
Amber’s real-time FiT varies to reflect the market value of power in your area - meaning you earn more for your exports when the grid needs it most.
When wholesale prices are high
• Higher wholesale prices means earning more for your exports.
• If you export more power than you use, you’ll typically be better off during this higher price period.
When wholesale prices are low
• If you use more power than you export, Amber is a better fit during low price period.
• If you export more than you import, you may be better off with a traditional retailer.
If you have solar and an eligible battery, Amber’s SmartShift™ can help accelerate the renewable transition by automating your system - exporting power to the grid when wholesale prices are high and charging when prices are low.
The wholesale FiT that Amber passes on to its customers is typically lower than most retailers’ FiTs, which are subsidised with mark-ups on customers’ energy usage. Lower wholesale FiTs with Amber can be offset by shifting your energy consumption to cheaper, greener times.See real feed-in prices in your postcode
