What is the Smart Electricity service?

Smart Electricity is a virtual power plant that helps to smartly manage home electricity consumption, production, and storage, allowing you to save on energy costs and market prices.

The virtual power plant manages production solutions in a way that takes into account your consumption, production forecast, and market price with the aim to buy electricity at a lower price and sell at a higher price.
