The Challenge
High energy bills
We all feel it—energy prices have increased tremendously in recently years, and this trend is set to continue. If this concerns you, you're not alone: a recent survey by Choice Magazine shows that 81% of people are concerned or very concerned about high energy bills.
Accessible clean energy
If you're like most people, you want your energy to come from clean, renewable sources. Australia is a leader in rooftop solar with 1.6 million of us having already made the switch. But what about those of us who can't—either because we can't afford it, we live in an apartment or rent, for example?
Low price for generation
If you've already installed solar, the rate you get paid for your excess energy is both under-valued and uncertain. By comparison, retail rates at which energy is purchased can be up to 10 times higher! This means it takes longer to pay back the up-front investment. Batteries can help but they're still quite expensive.

Our Solution
If you have solar or batteries, Nexergy's platform enables you to sell your electricity to others in your community, for more than you get from typical feed-in tariffs, but less than they would otherwise pay for conventional energy.

If you're someone who can't get your own solar or batteries—due to cost, living in an apartment or renting, for example—you can purchase locally-generated clean energy for less than conventional energy.

It's a win-win: those with solar and batteries (sellers) get better returns, and buyers reduce their energy costs.
How much can you save?
Research shows that people engaging in local energy trading can save 20% or more on their electricity bills.*

Fair returns for generated energy
By connecting prosumers—producers and consumers of energy—with others in their community, the Nexergy platform achieves a fairer price for energy. Buyers of this electricity can access clean energy for less than they would otherwise pay—it's a win/win!
Get paid by your energy company
Energy companies can offer incentives to owners of batteries and home automation devices when it helps them to run their network better. For example, they might pay for you to store or export energy when it's most valuable.
Lower costs for everyone
Local energy trading enables energy users—even those who can't afford to install solar and batteries—to access lower energy costs whilst also using clean energy. Trading also supports those who have made the investment and ultimately reduces costs for all.
