Getting Started

The Powerlake MarketActiv App helps you to save money and reduce your CO2 emissions by enabling your devices to use cheaper and more renewable electricity. Read on to get started.

Step 1: See Your Savings

Get started by creating your free Powerlake account. You can then add a virtual device to see how it will respond to the market.

Start with the big ticket items such as your electric hot water storage system, pool pump/heater and EV charger. You’ll get the most bang for your buck with these, but feel free to get creative!

Step 2: Connect a Smart Device

Once you are satisfied with your virtual device, go ahead and connect it to some hardware. Visit this page to see which hardware we support.

Step 3: Start Saving

Congratulations! Your device is now MarketActiv. There are two main ways to bank your savings. The one you use will depend on how you pay for electricity:

I Pay an Agreed Rate

Many electricity retailers offer reward programs for reducing your energy usage during peak times. You can use these programs to capture some of the benefits of using Powerlake. Some such programs are listed below in alphabetical order:

I Pay Wholesale

Buying wholesale energy isn’t for everyone, but with risk sometimes comes reward. You will receive the benefits of using our app directly.

You’ll see savings in the form of lower usage at high prices, and higher usage at low prices. Sit back and enjoy the best of the wholesale market.

For those interested, Amber Electric offers wholesale electricity plans.

That’s It!

What are you waiting for? Reduce your electricity bills and CO2 emissions today! YOU HAVE THE POWER!
