  8. There is one (1) prize to be awarded in this Competition. The prize the winner will receive comprises:
  • Up to 15 Risen 330w Solar Panels (RSM120-6-330M 120 Cell) (if the winner’s property is not suited to accommodate this number of panels (in the Promoter’s reasonable opinion) the number of panels will be reduced accordingly));
  • SAJ 5kW Single Phase Inverter (R5-5K-S2);
  • Eveready® Energy Vault 5.1kWh Battery (AS1-3KS-10.2);
  • Installation of the above panels, inverter and battery (including travel and freight costs);
  • Membership with Members Energy for 12 months; and
  • A Members Energy credit to cover the cost of the Daily Supply Charge (see definition below) for the Prize winner for 12 months; and
  • A credit towards up to 300kW of energy usage per month for the Prize winner for 12 months.

The maximum total Prize value is $15,572.50 (not including the credit for usage for 12 months).

This maximum total Prize value is calculated on the basis that the daily supply charge which covers the cost to connect to the grid (Daily Supply Charge) is $1.40 per day, which based on the most expensive distribution network as at the date of these terms, and is subject to change. Please note that the Daily Supply Charge may vary based on the distribution network in which the Prize winner’s property is located and the Daily Supply Charge may differ for different distribution networks. Unless expressly stated, all other expenses become the responsibility of the winner.

For the 12 month period of the Members Energy Membership:

  • If the Prize winner exceeds the energy usage included (300kW per month), the Prize Winner will be required to pay any usage charges in excess of this amount (at the rates set out in the energy contract);
  • The Prize winner will not be entitled to receive any energy trading benefits for the initial 12 month period. Any potential earnings will be used to set off any amounts incurred for usage exceeding the Prize winner’s included usage. These potential earnings will remain as a credit on the Prize winner’s account and will be used to offset any future excess usage charges during the 12 month period.
