How The People's Grid Works

We're an energy network that allows you to buy, sell and share renewable energy. We allow communities to power themselves. We plug into your local wind farm to power your neighbourhood cafe. We leverage your neighbour’s solar to power your living room. Community-sourced, renewable energy.

A unique approach to energy

The People’s Grid runs on an ecosystem of members that feed and use the grid. Energy Allies are people who switch providers and sign up to our grid. Their energy could come from people with excess rooftop solar, we like to call them Energy Amplifiers. It could also come from Energy Producers running local renewable farms like wind and solar.

Energy Allies

Sign up to a Collective. Switch Providers. Buy renewable energy.

When you sign up to a Collective, you’ll switch providers and transition to renewable energy at the same time. Energy Amplifiers and local Energy Producers will power you with a range of solar, wind, and biogas.
