Use your electricity credit, whatever the season
Your solar power system will sometimes generate more electricity than your household needs, especially in summer. The solar electricity you do not immediately consume flows into your SENEC storage system, so that you can use it in the evening or on days with less sunlight. If your storage system is full, the surplus electricity is fed into the public electricity grid. With the SENEC.Cloud, you can invest this surplus solar-powered electricity in a virtual credit account. You can use this electricity credit with complete flexibility when you need it at a later date. This means you maximise the benefit of your self-generated solar electricity. The innovative solar solution's virtual energy credits can be drawn from the grid when you need them most, day or night and no matter the weather.
SENEC.Cloud offers greater flexibility at a low cost
Under the traditional energy model, you could pay up to eight times the Feed-In-Tariff (FIT) rate when you need to draw energy down from the grid, compared to what you get paid to export solar energy to the grid.
With SENEC.Cloud, your stored solar energy credits can flexibly be drawn down from the grid at a 1:1 ratio, up to the limit of your SENEC.Cloud package. You export and import at the same rate, making our complete energy solution a game-changer for the Australian homeowner.
