AGL have cancelled Virtual Power Plant rollout to evaluate newer products

I was supposed to have my VPP installed next week but got a call to say all further deployments in the project have been cancelled. AGL will be evaluating alternative/newer products, and the contract is effectively cancelled. I could elect to get a refund or stay in the 'queue' to consider offers later, but these will be made around the end of the year. I asked whether I could have the existing device installed and was told this is not possible. Incidentally the contracted product was the Sunver ...

Re: AGL have cancelled Virtual Power Plant rollout to evaluate newer products

Thanks for reply GregA. I am just hoping that the Sunverge's LiFePo4 battery chemistry is retained on the new offering - 7000 cycles at (90%) depth of discharge (DoD); or 8000 cycles at 85% DoD. https://www.pvbuzz.com/best-battery-chemistry-behind-the-meter/ Frogster EDIT:Actually I think the battery chemistry reported for the Sunverge SIS at sites likehttps://www.solarquotes.com.au/battery-storage/comparison-table/(Lithium Iron Phosphate) is wrong.I now think it is Li-Ion NMC - Kokam brand - Li ...

Re: Virtual Power Plant discussion thread

Greetings, good to see clarification on the new options for the VPP hardware. Would it be possible please to advise the model of SolarEdge inverter being offered, it doesn't seem to be mentioned in the announcement or online material. Thanks

Re: Virtual Power Plant discussion thread

Thanks for info TheRealDave The choice of SE5000-XXS/SE6000-XXS surprises me, firstly because it is DC coupled (unlike PowerWall and Sunverge SIS) so will interface directly to the existing solar panels and will replace customer installed inverters.Also as I understand it each solar panel will have to be retrofitted with a SolarEdge power optimiser, which will involve some cost and labour.https://www.solaredge.com/products/power-optimizerLastly it does not appear to be the latest generation of t ...
