So simple and big savings with No Bills
We got the no bills system installed a few months back.
We had been meaning to switch to solar for a while, but every time we had gone to organise quotes, make decisions on panels, battery sizes etc it always just got too hard and complicated. The team were great and took care of everything, from organising all the tradies through to dealing with our electricity company and organising the government rebate, which was fantastic.
We also thought the no bills scheme was pretty interesting. We worked out that our savings covered the initial costs...within 3.5 years, so there is big upside in the future! Plus, it is great to be using green energy and part of a scheme that can fundamentally change how we use power. I reckon in 10 years everyone will be on a scheme like this.
Reposit and a battery has made a huge difference to my solar system
I have a 6kw solar system and added a 10kw lg battery and reposit controller a few years ago. I couldn’t be happier with the choices made and would highly recommend reposit. The app allows me to monitor the system real time. The reposit controller learns the normal household energy usage and optimises the battery charging and discharging during peak and off peak periods to minimise household energy costs. I find in summer that I am still exporting a lot of solar power back to the grid so am planning to add a second batter to the system. Anyone with solar panels should seriously think about adding a battery and reposit controller to their system.
A must have with solar power batteries
I have been a Reposit Power customer for a number of years now after getting a battery installed. I have found the mobile app useful to monitor our house usage to better manage what appliances we use and when. Additionally, Reposit do a good job of managing the infrastructure usage by determining the most efficient way to utilise the power. This is based on the weather, time of day and cost of the grid power and battery charge levels. If you intend on getting solar and battery installed I would recommend Reposit as a must have.
Reposit has helped eliminate our annual electricity charges
When we had a 2.8kw solar system installed 12 years ago, we were delighted with the associated 50c/kw we received for power exported to the grid. It didn't change our power usage but it helped to offset our power bills.
Five years ago, as solar panels and batteries became less expensive, we decided to install a second solar system, aided by Government financial incentives. Our supplier recommended a 5.6kw system, a 5kw storage battery, and Reposit as a control system so we could fully realise the benefits of our investment. As retirees, we ar...e home using power during the day as well as in peak morning and evening time slots. By monitoring our usage patterns and weather forecasts, Reposit controls when we use power from the solar panels, battery or the grid, battery storage from our surplus daytime production and overnight, off peak, battery top up from the grid to meet early morning demand. Experience in the first year showed we were still exporting a significant amount of power to the grid after the battery was full. Analysis showed it would be cost effective to install a second (10kw) battery to store our surplus production, with both batteries being jointly controlled by Reposit. Since then, our electicity charges across the year have been consistently negative, with the surpluses being used to pay for other utility charges and a significant portion of our rates. Our investment in Reposit has been critical to achieving this outcome. They constantly review their algorithms to fine tune our unit.
Reposit optimises the value of your PV and Battery system
Despite batteries being relatively expensive still, the ability to avoid high peak and shoulder tariffs make such a system very worthwhile. Reposit adds an extra layer of intelligence to the setup by predicting expected usage and adjusting the system setting according to weather predictions and wholesale price variations. For example, if your usage pattern involves heavy load during the morning peak period, Reposit will partly charge your battery overnight at off peak rates to cover the morning demand, effectively time shifting your usage to off peak rates most of the time. The attached chart shows that our actual electricity cost in $ now is about the same as it was over 30 years ago.
Have had Reposit installed with our solar panels and battery. The service from all the guys at Reposit has been first class. Always happy to discuss the product and work with me when I needed some help in relation to the battery etc. Would recommend.
Reposit has worked well for me for five years
Since 2016 Reposit has managed 4kw solar on the roof with 10kwh battery. It has been reliable, and saved me money. I like getting the grid credits on top of the feed in tariff.
Reposit provides the technology for my house to become a micro power station. Service has be superlative.
Reposit was installed with my PVs and 7kWh Tesla Powerwall In 2015. 2019 Nissan EV. $230 was the power bilk for whole lot last quarter. After 6 years very happy.
It's a very smart problem solver, that's really easy to use
I've been using the Reposit Power system for several years now with a domestic battery and 6.6kW PV solar system. I've also signed up to export electricity to the grid for credits as part of a virtual power station, that's accessed automatically when the grid has an urgent need.
The Reposit system just works seamlessly in the background, optimising the battery utilisation. It reports how the PV and battery are working - when I am curious. It even "learns" customer usage patterns, and uses real time weather forecasting to predict periods of hig...
No bill - Smooth, quick and easy onboarding
We onboarded within 1 month to no electricity bill product. The process was easy, with minimal effort from us. Their staff was very friendly and highly professional. Can't recommend enough.
Fantastic Product and Service - No more bill for me :)
Have recently had the Reposit system installed and have said goodbye to electricity bills! The entire process was so easy and the team at Reposit communicated frequently from start to finish. Their installers worked quickly and the end result is very neat and high quality. Thanks Reposit!
Happy No-Bill Customers
We have been on the Reposit No Bill system for a few months now and are really happy with our setup.
Buying a new solar system is a bit intimidating because of the costs involved, but we found Reposit's customer service really friendly and helpful. They were able to answer all our questions and help us to feel comfortable making this investment.
The panels, battery, and controller look fantastic, and have been working great. Best of all though is the peace of mind that all our bills are taken care of and we simply don't need to worry about it.
We would definitely recommend Reposit to anyone looking to reduce their carbon footprint and get rid of their energy bills.
Unreliable and poor response to problems
The Reposit system was installed with my solar system and meter upgrade. It has been unreliable since installation and numerous visits by a contractor and fitting of signal booster and new aerial haven't led to any sustained performance. Reposit staff regularly try to shift blame to my wifi connection: I am able to counter that the connection supports the inverter unit, lighting, irrigation, security, etc. without any problems or dropouts. It is noticeable that the aerial for Reposit is a tiny stub thing and the contractor upgraded it to an uns...ubstantial magnet attached generic aerial with little change in reliability. The SolarEdge inverter system has a large solid aerial and has performed reliably. The inverter is on the inside in my garage located immediately behind the meter box containing the Reposit kit. Waste of time and money.
Product Recalled now Delaying Tactics on Replacement No Firm Replacement Date
Installed Reposit Kit 41 cost me $880 in Sept 2016, come late May 2017, their Reposit kit is subject to a Product Safety Recall on Government website as the device does not comply with Australian Standards. Attempted to obtain replacement date from Reposit Power, given Sept 2017 as the date for Replacement in email on a number of occasions. Now am being told end of November but Reposit refuse to name their contractors who are engaged with the replacement process.. Another customer in Sydney have had their Reposit Kit replaced and are also Natur...al Solar customers in August. I am told because I am a Natural Solar customer that I have to wait longer as the installation by them was dodgy. Even though no-one from Reposit has inspected my installation at my premises they have formed this opinion based upon statistics. Waiting 7 months is unacceptable and knowing others have already had theirs replaced. The device can possibly electrocute anyone who touches it. Reposit refuse to nominate who their installer is to replace my kit, even though I know HCB Solar have already carried this same replacement for product safety recall in Sydney.
Questions & Answers
Hi, I'm keen to install a Reposit no-bill system in Canberra. But of course being cautious I want to see solid reviews from current and past customers. I haven't been able to find out much information about Reposit and they were pretty cagey when I asked on the phone. I see that after some negative reviews, there has been a surge in positive Reposit reviews in the last few days, most from people who have never previously posted on Product Review. If you had your time again, would you recommend signing up for the Reposit no-bill system?
Absolutely. It is one of the best decisions we have made. Reposit asked me if I would post a review but they never asked me if the review would be positive or qualified in some way. My review says it all. I can't speak too highly of them. I have seen one or two negative reviews and I find it hard to believe they are being objective. It is possible part of the reasons for their negative comments could have been related to faulty battery performance. I gather there have been problems with some LG batteries made 4-5 years ago, resulting in a recall of some. We have both Reposit and an LG battery (to supplement our Tesla one) and have had no issues at all.
My experience with Reposit has been overwhelmingly positive. The system basically adds a layer of intelligence to the PV/Battery combination to optimise the way the power produced by the panels is utilised. In particular the time shifting of household usage to avoid peak tariffs is of major benefit ie partly charging the battery at off peak rates overnight to cover predicted usage during the morning peak.
The system works best if you are configured for a 'Time of Use' tariff - the default is often flat rate tariffs where time shifting is of no benefit. i would also add that it is critical to look at the daily supply charge as this is often the largest component of your bill if the PV/Battery system if well designed. We changed suppliers and reduced our daily fixed cost from $1.40 to 74 cents. At a Feed in Tariff of 7 cents thats 10 kWhs less power required to offset the fixed cost.
The bottom line is make sure you crunch the numbers as each installation is different.
A couple of other recommendations - Use a longstanding local installer to design and optimise the entire system, and use quality components. The additional expense is worth it in the long run. We have a 10kW LG battery and 23 LG panels (10 and 25 yr warranties respectively). The system was installed 3 years ago. The battery has been identified by LG as having a potential fault - of the thousands of this model battery installed in Australia there have been 6 faults to date. Their response is to replace all the batteries of that type that have the potential fault with brand new equivalent batteries with a new 10 year warranty as well at no cost to the customer.
Finally, if you have shading issues on the proposed panel location, you should include Panel Optimisers on each panel to minimise the effect of shade on the system output. Otherwise shade on a single panel can take out the entire array.
Good luck and i'm happy to be contacted directly if you wish (organise via Reposit)
Thank you Bruce, that is extremely sound advice and gives me some real food for thought.
One of the differences with the “no-bill” package is that Reposit arrange the installation and choose the components. From looking at reviews the components do not appear to be quite the top-tier brands. I am yet to discuss that further with them, it may or may not be an issue.
But overall I am delighted that your experience with Reposit has been overwhelmingly positive.
