Nectr offers Canberrans affordabIe SoIar bundIe products to beat rising energy prices

25th July, 2022

ACT households are now a step closer to affordable energy independence, thanks to award-winning energy retailer Nectr launching Solar and Solar + Battery energy bundles.

Currently, the ACT Government provides generous solar and battery rebates – as well as financial incentives – to cut the cost of installing solar power systems and home energy storage. With only 20% of homes in the ACT[1] having rooftop solar plus the rising electricity costs, more Canberrans are considering household solar and battery options.

Nectr’s latest Solar and Solar + Battery energy bundles include competitive electricity rates, shorter contract periods, premium and performance-based hardware, and simple monthly payment plans.

“ACT aims to have 100% of electricity supply sourced from renewables plus is leading the way on promoting the purchase of electric cars, which aligns with Nectr’s vision for Australia becoming a global leader and supporter in renewable energy,” said Andrew Butler, Nectr Managing Director.

“That’s why we’re supporting the ACT’s renewables goal by launching Nectr’s Solar and Solar + Battery energy bundles in this market. Nectr’s new energy bundles will enable ACT residents to harness and store the power of the sun to use in their household when they need it, particularly during peak periods, and minimise energy drawn from the grid.”

“At Nectr we’re committed to helping Australians find more affordable, greener, cleaner energy solutions to suit their needs and lifestyle. Our Solar and Solar + Battery energy bundles can get ACT homeowners on the road to energy independence – which means they can start saving money on energy even sooner,” said Andrew.

  • Nectr Bee Solar Bundle Plan – For customers taking their first step to energy independence. A customer-owned system receiving a feed-in tariff. Bundled with a 3-year fixed energy plan. The solar component paid off in equal instalments over the contract period. Installation by CEC-approved retailer/installer.
  • Nectr Bee System Bundle (Solar + Battery energy bundle) – For customers seeking energy independence. Bundled with a 5-year fixed energy plan and a monthly VPP credit. Hardware components paid off in equal instalments over the contract period. Installation by CEC-approved retailer/installer.
