What is a Virtual Power Plant?

A Virtual Power Plant combines the power of hundreds or even thousands of distributed solar and energy storage systems like the one on your home to create a new kind of power plant. A Virtual Power Plant can reduce stress on the grid, limit the need for expensive new energy infrastructure, and even replace a traditional fossil fuel powered or nuclear plant.

What is the Virtual Power Plant II Program by Swell Energy?

The VPP II Program by Swell Energy is a program designed to help reduce electric use during periods of high energy demand by utilizing batteries like the Tesla Powerwall. Swell Energy is working with SCE to bring hundreds of Tesla Powerwalls together to create a Virtual Power Plant to support the grid in a clean, innovative way.

The program will operate this year only through September 30, 2022

Who is eligible?
