Frequently Asked Questions
How much will I save through trading? Savings will depend on how much energy you use and when. You won't need to change your energy usage habits but when your neighbours are selling energy, you'll automatically get savings by accessing their energy. Our modelling shows energy savings for participants can be in the range of 10%–40%.
Are there any up-front costs? No. It's as simple as changing your energy plan. In fact, Energy Locals makes it even simpler than most!
Is there a "lock in" contract? There's no lock-in contracts—you can leave whenever you want.
Do I need to install anything? Nexergy trading uses the standard electricity grid to enable energy flows between traders. All you need is a smart energy tracker, which we'll provide and install. There's nothing else special you need to buy or do.
What else do I need to setup to start trading? Once you're on the Nexergy platform, you'll use our web application to setup your account. Once you've done that, the Nexergy platform will do the rest.
