Powerwatch v3 tracks live and forecast wholesale energy prices, helping you make informed decisions about how and when to use energy. For Powerclub Members accessing wholesale energy prices, Powerwatch v3 gives you the power to choose what you pay for electricity.
How does it work?
Powerwatch v3 will notify you and recommend ways to reduce energy-intensive appliances during high price periods. Doing so will help maximise your energy savings, potentially saving you hundreds of dollars a year.
As we are in winter season, it's important to prepare for an occasional price spike. Price spikes are rare and typically don’t last very long, so it’s essential to act fast when they do.
Downloading Powerwatch v3 and setting your notification levels will help you to protect your Powerbank from being used up unnecessarily - by using energy when it’s cheap and avoiding excess usage when it’s more expensive.
Check out the Powerwatch v3 User Guide for tips on how to use the app, and details about the recent upgrade.
If you don’t have a Smart Meter, you will have a Basic Meter or Manually Read Interval Meter. Smart Meters record your usage and the time of use, which allows you to reduce your usage during high price periods and proportionately avoid the associated cost. For Powerclub Members with Basic Meters, Powerwatch v3 will help you understand the occurrence of high prices and your likely ability to avoid them and take advantage of when power is cheaper, reducing your overall electricity costs.
Talk to our Member Advocate Team about upgrading your meter so you can get the most out of the Powerwatch app.
