By being a part of AGL’s virtual power plant you get a discounted battery price, helping you to enjoy the benefits of battery technology in your home for less. You can also store more renewable energy for use when it’s needed, and AGL can actively manage participating batteries to help reduce demand on the grid when it is struggling – like on a hot day when everyone is turning on their air conditioners. That could be by discharging your battery within your home so you draw less from the grid, or by exporting directly to the grid and paying you your standard Retailer Feed-in Tariff.

This article was partially helpful, but you need another button other than YES or NO.

Why not make a small payment each quarterly bill for the home battery, so that the charge is not such a big hip-pocket hit?

And, further, why not disconnect from the grid completely?  That in itself would lower demand on the grid.

Finally, has anyone considered upgrading the bloody GRID?

I abhore the idea that power utilities can pay me 11c per Kw, then charge three times that amount to other non-panel owners. 

It simply isn't fair.
