Tesla’s Powerwall2, is now part of the suite of home batteries offered as part of Nectr’s solar and battery bundles. In addition, Nectr has now launched Nectr Evolve—a virtual power plant (VPP) that represents the next evolution of clean, green, and sustainable energy solutions for Australian homeowners.

Nectr Evolve is an ecosystem of multiple solar and battery systems across various homes on Nectr’s VPP plans, to create a network that can efficiently store, and distribute renewable energy. It also optimises the efficiency of home batteries and trades unused energy during times of peak demand to contribute to a more stable and cleaner grid system.

Coupling Nectr Evolve’s VPP plans—Nectr BEEyond and Nectr Plan BEE—with compatible home batteries, owners can benefit from more affordable energy and support Australia’s energy network. With a broader suite of home batteries available under Nectr Evolve, homeowners have greater flexibility to choose a system that suits their storage needs.

Nectr managing director Tae Hong Kim said, “With Nectr, Australian homeowners have access to a wide array of high-quality solar and battery products such as Tesla’s Powerwall2, financing options and choices of VPP plans for existing or new battery systems.
