The future of energy. Welcome to sonnenFlat

Things are changing in the world of electricity, for the good. Say goodbye to your normal energy retailer and welcome the future. Welcome to sonnenFlat.

In our continuing mission to show customers a new way in a zero energy environment, ZEN Energy is proud to present you with a game changing innovation from ZEN Technology Partner sonnen Australia. sonnenFlat is the ideal addition to your ZEN sonnen storage system and solar system. sonnenFlat will enable you to become independent from conventional retailers and take your energy future into your own hands.

What is sonnenFlat?

It is an energy tariff for sonnenBatterie owners. You receive a guaranteed amount of energy for a low monthly fee that can be as little as $49 a month, and in return some of the energy stored in your sonnenBatterie will be used to assist in the stabilisation of the electricity grid.

How does sonnenFlat work?

The offer is open to customers who install the sonnenBatterie and who have an existing or new solar system. Once you have purchased and installed your ZEN sonnen storage system, you can sign up for one of three sonnenFlat packages outlined below on the sonnen website.

Your solar and ZEN sonnen system will typically cover a large portion of your energy consumption but not all. So under a conventional retail bill you will still have energy charges and fixed supply charges to pay. sonnenFlat replaces both these charges with one low monthly fee, saving you money on electricity bills.

Each package requires a suitable capacity solar system installed on the roof of your home. The solar system, ZEN sonnen storage system, and sonnenFlat will combine to provide your energy needs to the consumption allowance. If you exceed the allowance in a 12 month period you will be charged for the excess consumption at a low per kWh energy rate.
