Mission & Vision

What is a VPP?

A VPP is a de-centralised network of solar energy and battery backup systems, which deliver excess energy back into the grid to provide power for other locations.

A singular home’s solar system can only supply a limited amount to the grid. But as part of a VPP, the collective excess power can meet a significant amount of electrical demand, leading to greater efficiencies and a higher proportion of renewable energy to the grid.
