  8. 8. • How many have solar already? • How many are thinking about installing batteries? • How many want to improve the savings from installing a battery? • How many have heard about Reposit? Why Are You Here?
  9. 9. How The Grid Works: Electricity Generators Electricity is bought and sold on a wholesale spot market based on supply and demand.
  10. 10. How The Grid Works: Electricity Distributors Responsible for managing the electricity poles and wires.
  11. 11. How The Grid Works: Electricity Retailers Buy energy on the wholesale spot market and resell it to consumers.
  12. 12. How The Grid Works: Electricity Consumers Homeowners consume and produce electricity but without subsidies, you miss out on the real value of your energy.
  13. 13. How The Grid Works: Electricity Consumers With Reposit Reposit not only finds the best price to sell your energy for, but also buys up cheap energy and stores it for later.
  14. 14. • Reposit is software that you add to your home solar or battery system • The Reposit app runs on your phone, tablet or computer • Reposit is compatible with all brands of solar systems and many popular battery systems too What is Reposit?
  15. 15. • Reposit is like a smart meter that works for you, not the retailer • You can predict your next energy bill and check your bill is correct • Learn how much your solar is saving you and what a battery could save you What Reposit Does For You: Accurate Energy Monitoring
  16. 16. • Reposit lets your old solar work with your new solar or batteries • Also lets a battery you install now get expanded in the future • Don’t be limited by the brand of your inverter or battery What Reposit does for you: Combines Old With New
  17. 17. • Reposit predicts the weather and your energy usage • Solar is the cheapest way to fill your battery, but there is not always enough sun to fill it up • If it will be cloudy tomorrow, Reposit will fill your battery overnight on the off-peak rate What Reposit Does For You: Pre-fills With Cheap Energy
  18. 18. • Install a compatible battery and earn extra money • Only available through GridCredits electricity retailers • Reposit customers currently earn $1 / kWh during GridCredit events • Can rise to $14 / kWh What Reposit does for you: Earning GridCredits

  24. 24. • Community energy is where a community develops, delivers and benefits from sustainable energy projects. • This can include supply-side projects such as renewable energy installations and storage and demand-side projects such as energy efficiency and demand management. Community energy can even include community-based approaches to selling or distributing energy.
  25. 25. Benefits of community energy
  26. 26. Proven models of community energy • Behind the meter and below the load

  55. 55. Moved from the floor, July 23rd, 2017 The meeting thanks CEFE, its Bermagui group and the speakers for today’s forum. This meeting encourages the steering group to move into the next stage of the cheaper cleaner electricity project, by: • identifying additional expertise needed to move the project forward; • continuing to liaise with business, local government, and non-government agencies; • investigating the possibility of funding to support these activities. We ask that CEFE report back to the community before the end of the year on the feasibility of both small scale and utility scale projects.
