What is Origin Loop?

Think of the Loop virtual power plant (VPP) as a new, technology-centred energy grid. It uses its smarts to assess when energy is most needed.

Then, it coordinates thousands of energy assets to work together like a mini power station to manage supply and demand.

Your home solar battery is one of these assets, and is an important source of renewable energy that’s used to support the wider network.

Partnering in positive energy, how Origin Loop VPP works

We’re all about working together to reduce power bills, manage the grid and keep all that good energy flowing. That’s why we’re inviting selected battery installers customers to join our growing network of connected solar batteries.

Community powered

The Origin Loop VPP relies on customers, like you, to share their excess battery stored solar energy (max 200 kWh / year) to reduce load on the grid during periods of peak demand.

Helping stabilise the grid

As the VPP utilises accessible solar energy, it’s helping reduce our reliance on coal power. Moving towards a renewable energy future is better for our communities and planet.

Full visibility
