Our Growing Network

The South Australian Government is providing support for Tesla to develop a community of 50,000+ homes with solar and Powerwall battery systems across the state. By sharing energy generated by the sun between homes, this reduces the cost of energy for everyone in the network.

Maximum Energy Security

The Virtual Power Plant connects a network of solar-powered homes—providing backup power day and night, even during a grid outage. This allows for higher energy security and grid reliability for the entire community.
