Introducing 'Surplus Solar for Comfort': Village Energy's Latest Innovation to Ease Energy Bill Stress

At Village Energy, we are committed to developing smart home energy solutions that make a significant difference to both households and the grid. Recently, we conducted customer research involving over 200 Australian households to understand their needs in the face of rising living costs and energy pressures. The insights we gathered are guiding our next steps in innovation.

Key Findings from Our Research

Our survey revealed some compelling statistics:

  • 75% of households expressed a desire for smart automation that prioritises home heating and cooling using solar production before exporting it to the grid.
  • 28% of households reported finding it very or somewhat difficult to pay their energy bills currently, with heating being a major part of their energy expenditure. This equates to approximately 1 in 3.5 households experiencing bill stress.
