Bayside Battery Project
United Energy is installing two pole-mounted batteries for the local community to share. This is part of our efforts to develop a flexible network to make sure we can power customer choices.
By installing the batteries on our network, we will help sustain our 99.99% reliability for customers, support those with rooftop solar to get the most out of their investment, and enable customers to use these new technologies.
This is the first time in Australia that batteries have been installed as an alternative source of electricity for homes and businesses.

Summer Saver is an innovative program which helps share electricity in your community for a few hours, on a few really hot days over summer. By reducing or shifting when you use electricity, Summer Savers not only earn cash back, but also reduce stress on the grid – it’s called demand response.
During summer, many people are using air conditioning, pool pumps, and other appliances placing short, intense periods of pressure on the electricity grid. From 1 December 2019 to 31 March 2020, you can partner with United Energy to reduce electricity demand in your home on Event days for around 3 hours.
We’ll pay you every time you participate in an Event for the full 3 hours! For more information or to see if you qualify, please visit unitedenergy.com.au/summersaver.
The United Energy Summer Saver Program is a voluntary demand response program where you can earn cash for reducing your electricity consumption when asked to do so by the Network.
Every five years our business submits a proposal for how we will charge for electricity based on our expected costs and the needs of our customers. Energised 2021–2026 is a statement of our approach to planning for this five year period.
We are committed to achieving the best long-term results for our customers and the network. We don’t want to just tick all the boxes, but strive for excellence in all we do, and to be diligent in keeping the needs and concerns of our customers at the heart of all our plans for the future.
