Solar and Battery giant QCells freezes prices on all Arcstream energy plans, for its Australian customers until at least October, offering stability amidst national wholesale price hikes.
“This upcoming price increase is something we knew was coming, and we’ve been able to plan around it to ensure our customers are feeling the benefit of their decision.” says General Manager of QCells Australia, Mick Fell.
Arcstream’s integrated solar and storage subscription plan is a fixed-rate monthly offer backed up from the grid by 100% green energy, delivered via authorised electricity retailer partner, Electricity in a Box.
Both existing and new customers are avoiding tariff rate changes, being rewarded for their custom by QCells.
This move aims to promote renewable energy access and encourage homeowners to invest in solar solutions. QCells, Q.home product is a one stop shop with solar panels, batteries, and exclusive energy plans packaged into one. Contact us for more information.

The cheeky solar installation utilised a Power Purchasing Agreement (PPA) model, where the solar company owns the system and sells the solar power to the tenant at a reduced rate. PPA’s are popular in the commercial sector with most industrial spaces being rented properties.
Giving rise to a conundrum about who should pay for a system which largely profits tenants, in this instance the financing option resulted in no upfront costs for WGAC or MCM.
The installation has saved Who Gives A Crap, approximately 24% on their monthly electricity bill, and the company plan to install solar across all their Aussie warehouses over the next year. They have also just launched an electric vehicle toilet paper fleet, and are currently exploring end-of-life battery solutions to tie everything together.
By reducing emissions, companies can collectively make a significant impact on climate change, according to Simon Griffiths, CEO and co-founder of Who Gives A Crap.
