Cheaper & Greener: Maximise Cheap, Renewable Energy

Usually, people buy energy from the grid, which comes from different places like coal power stations. With the increase of cheap renewable energy in the grid, the price of energy is cheap when the sun is shining. The NRN Battery allows you to take advantage of this cheap energy, and avoid paying expensive grid rates, all with no upfront fee!


A Decade of Savings: 10-Year Energy Bill Comparison with NRN Battery

>We looked at your energy bills for the next 10 years. Right now, you pay a certain amount each year for energy. But with the Battery, you will use energy from your roof, and it will cost less though this energy plan. So, you will save money every year! See the table below to know how much you can save.

YOUR ENERGY BILL Year 1 Year 5 Year 10
Do nothing $4,253 $4,969 $5,648
Diamond Energy $2,970 $3,268 $3,610
Snapshot Bill Savings $1,283 $1,702 $2,038
Total Savings Overtime $1,283 $7,274 $17,009

If you do nothing, we expect energy costs to increase by 4.15% every year for the next 10 years. That's why your Year 10 energy bill is higher than Year 1.

With this plan, your energy price stays the same for what you use from your battery. Year 5 and Year 10 look even better with no increase! (See more information in the How does the Energy Plan work ? in the section below)

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the costs involved? What’s the Catch?

The good news is, there's no catch, no cost and no finance, to have a Battery system installed at your home when you join NRN. We promise to make the process as cost-free as possible for you. As long as you're with an NRN Partner Energy Retailer, you won't have to pay anything for the Battery system. That's right, it's all on the house! You won't pay to become an NRN member or for the system's installation.

Here's how it works: The NRN Partner Energy Retailer covers the cost of the system, including maintenance and performance management. You'll only need to pay for the energy you use, just like your regular energy bill, which covers the system's cost. It's simple and straightforward. But, if you decide not to use an NRN Partner Energy Retailer, no worries!

You'll default to the NRN Direct Energy Plan, where you can still enjoy the benefits of the Battery system. You'll receive great savings and a clean energy plan, making it a fantastic option either way.

So, no hidden fees, no surprises – just clean energy savings with NRN Battery!

How does this compare to buying or financing a Battery system?

We have prepared a comprehensive line graph that compares the different options: buying the Battery system outright, financing it, doing nothing, or choosing NRN Battery plan. The graph clearly shows that NRN's Battery plan outshines the other options in terms of cost savings.

The NRN plan provides significant advantages, delivering the best return on investment compared to the alternatives. Additionally, NRN's plan achieves these savings in a much shorter period compared to the other options, making it the most favorable and financially sound choice for customers.

To give you a better idea, it would take around 9 years to pay off the system if you purchased it outright, and approximately 11 years if you financed it. In contrast, NRN's plan offers quicker and more substantial savings from the start."

Does my battery include blackout protection?

Your battery is back-up capable, meaning it can provide power to your home during a blackout*. There may be additional costs associated with adding this feature to your home, as every home’s electricity switchboard is different. While for most homes this cost is less than $400, we recommend speaking to your NRN Installation Partner for exact pricing.

*Back-up power is limited to 4.6kW of power. Your battery cannot supply your home power if it is empty. NRN provides no guarantee for your battery having capacity ahead of a black-out event.
