New-breed energy retailer Nectr invites customers to minimise their power bills with real-time data from Wattwatchers
50 households are being offered the opportunity to join our My Energy Marketplace project, free of charge, with the successful applicants to receive 3-year smart energy solution packages worth nearly $1000 each.
Nectr is a new Australian based ‘entech’ (energy technology company) owned by Hanwha Energy – a global leader in renewable energy.
Now Wattwatchers Digital Energy is teaming up with Nectr to make a special offer aimed at home owners who are grappling with large power bills, and want real-time, granular data to help them drive savings.
This opportunity for up to 50 Nectr customers is an early preview of the Wattwatchers-led My Energy Marketplace (MEM) project, which is supported by grant funding from the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA), and is now deploying to 5000-plus homes, small businesses and schools around Australia.
To win all applicants have to do is tell Nectr in 25 words or less what your top tip is for saving energy at home. The lucky eligible Nectr customers who are first to qualify for the MEM offer, and who accept its terms and conditions, will receive:
A Wattwatchers smart energy monitoring device
Installed by an electrician
With three years of subscriptions covering cellular communications, data and an App
By collaborating with Nectr, Wattwatchers is targeting a cohort of owner-occupier electricity consumers, who currently don’t have rooftop solar panels installed, and who are facing monthly power bills of $250 or higher (which means $3000 or more per year). They will also need to be Nectr customers.
The MEM project is creating a national network of data-empowered energy consumers who can benefit through:
- Better understanding how they use electricity
- Saving energy and money through adopting more efficient and less-wasteful behaviours
- Buying their electricity on the best tariffs for them
- Making better informed choices for future investments in cleaner energy appliances and equipment, including LED lighting upgrades, energy-star white goods, solar panels, battery storage and electric vehicles.
The Nectr-recruited MEM participants will be among the first households in Australia to get access to the new ‘MEM App’, which Wattwatchers is releasing soon to support consumers with real-time data through the internet.
