In Nectr’s never-ending quest to help more Australian navigate their energy needs and become even more energy efficient, we have created the Nectr BEEyond plan.
The Nectr BEEyond plan has been designed to be compatible with a range of batteries. Initially, Nectr BEEyond will be compatible with AlphaESS and Qcells batteries, with compatibility rollouts for including Tesla and Sungrow batteries to occur within the near future.
To enjoy the benefits of the Nectr BEEyond plan, you will need a battery with at least 10 kWh of storage capacity. Your home also needs to have a stable internet connection.
If you have a battery that is not currently a part of the list of compatible models, please get in touch with the Nectr technical support team. They can provide you with guidance on when your battery is going to become integrated into the Nectr BEEyond system.
You can usually find information about your battery in the app or website you use for your battery’s monitoring portal, or you should also be able to find the information on a label attached to the battery itself.
If you're unsure about the specifics of your battery, you can consult the website of your battery’s manufacturer, or contact the manufacturer directly for full details.
Your National Meter Identifier (NMI) can typically be found on your electricity bill. It's a unique 10- or 11-digit number that identifies your home’s electricity connection point.
If your electricity usage exceeds your allotted quarterly 1,500 kWh, you will be charged at the standard rate for the amount you use, then billed for your excess usage at the end of each quarter.
No. Your allotted quarterly 1,500 kWh of electricity resets at the beginning of each quarter, and you are not credited for any unused electricity.
A VPP, or ‘Virtual Power Plant’ is a network of various solar batteries that are capable of discharging energy back into the grid to help support it, that allows Nectr to offer competitive plans to our VPP subscribers.
No. Each solar battery can only be in one VPP at a time. If you are currently in another VPP, you will have to unenroll from it before you can connect to Nectr BEEyond.
You can check your VPP enrolment status by contacting your current energy provider, or by checking your energy bills or the app/website for your battery’s monitoring portal for any VPP-related information.
You can, but it may not be a simple process. The ability to manually export power into the grid will depend on your specific battery system, as well as local regulations.
By joining Nectr’s VPP, we can help take care of all the intricacies of connecting your solar battery and getting your system ready to export excess energy. Please contact Nectr for more information.
By joining Nectr BEEyond, Nectr utilises advanced control systems and software to efficiently and effectively monitor your battery. Our system optimises your battery’s charging and discharging to help maximise savings and grid support.
Your battery will only contribute up to 500 kWh per year, however, your battery will always hold a 20% back-up reserve charge, to ensure you are protected in the event of a network power outage.
Battery dispatch refers to the process of when, and how, your battery charges and discharges energy. Nectr BEEyond uses dispatch strategies to help optimise your battery.
Nectr has replaced the traditional and out-dated FiT, with a much simpler model which rewards you for participating in the Nectr VPP. Nectr BEEyond has one, up-front and highly competitive subscription fee, which gives you access to a generous allocation of grid energy each quarter.
And if you’re currently receiving a premium Government FiT, or if there is a government-mandated FIT minimum in your state that you are eligible for, you will still receive those FiTs when you join Nectr BEEyond.
Like all other Nectr customers, you can refer a friend or family member to join Nectr as well, and you will both receive a credit on your bill.
If you refer a friend to the Nectr BEEyond plan and they successfully sign up using your unique referral link, you and your friend will receive a $50 bill credit.
