On 25 May 2022, Pooled Energy Pty Limited (Pooled Energy) was suspended from the wholesale electricity market for failing to settle its accounts with the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) and can no longer supply its customers with electricity.
Pooled Energy was a purpose-built electricity provider in Australia which aimed to help home pool owners reduce the amount of energy required to run their pools. Pooled Energy had developed a technology platform for remote control of swimming pools and associated equipment, which allowed it to manage energy demand and provide grid stabilisation services. It was a subscription-based model with customers paying a monthly fee for the benefits and quarterly pool chemical deliveries.
While the model appeared to work well, unfortunately they were never able to achieve their goal of acquiring 5MW of load or approximately 5000 pools which would have proved the demand management and modulation capabilities at scale. They faced further difficulties when the wholesale price of energy skyrocketed in the middle of 2022 and never managed to recover.
At Clarity Pool Management we offer a similar solution without the monthly subscription payments. We have a number of solutions to control all of your pool equipment via a smartphone app, including automated chemical control, and a variable speed drive for your single speed pump. Furthermore, with the money you save on a monthly subscription to Pooled Energy you can put that towards one of our monthly maintenance packages.
