The People's Grid™
Energy for the people, by the people
How it Works
You can now have real control over your energy supply by having the choice to pick who is supplying your energy.
Buy your energy from Mark
When Mark's solar farm is generating electricity, we match your consumption with his energy output.
Our Electricity Retail partner
At other times, say at nighttime, Energy Locals will supply any shortfall. So you will always be guaranteed supply of electricity 24 hours a day.
How we match your electricity with Marks Solar Farm.
Marks solar farm is located in Renmark, SA which is one of the sunniest places on earth. The blue graph is indicative of what his solar farm generates on a sunny day.
Customers will be using electricity in their homes and business throughout the day and night. The red graph is indicative of a group of customers energy usage over a 24-hour period.
In every 30 minute interval of the day, Oxamii’s intelligent matching algorithm will determine how much electricity was matched with Marks solar farm and how much was supplied by our electricity retail partner Energy Locals.
The overlay shows how much electricity we have matched with Marks solar farm for the day.

Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, we believe in a sustainable energy future and so all generators on the Oxamii platform will come from renewable sources.
You will require a smart meter. If you don’t have one, our retail partner can install one. Additional hardware is optional, that would allow a customer to view their energy data in real time.
No, your electricity bill is made up of energy costs, network costs, government charges, environmental charges and retailer margins. Generators will get paid the portion that makes up energy costs.
The Oxamii matching algorithm intelligently calculates how much energy a generator has sold to a customer and at what rate. Oxamii handles all of the billing and each month the generator gets paid for energy generated and sold to the customer.

Oxamii is not a licensed retailer. The retailer and provider of energy to customers of The People’s Grid is Energy Locals Pty Ltd ACN 606 408 879
The Oxamii Marketplace allows small scale energy generators to promote their project to customers and sell their generated electricity at a fixed rate. Customers have the opportunity to select who they buy their energy from, knowing that the energy they buy comes from a local generator.
Up to this point, there hasn’t been a business model that supports small scale energy generators. This means the only option was to sell into the wholesale market. The problem with this is the variable price they receive plus the difficulty and uncertainty of not having a customer buying their energy. The Oxamii platform changes this, by creating a one stop shop for generators enabling them to attract retail customers and sell energy to them.
No problem, just like any other retailer you will need to let us know the date you are moving and your new location. All generator preferences and rates will remain the same.
When a generator can’t supply electricity our retail partner Energy Locals will supply electricity at the standard retail rate. On the bill, there will be 2 rates. One is a “matched rate” with generator the customer has preferenced, the other is “Other rate” which is the rate that is supplied by Energy Locals.
Yes, even on cloudy days or at night you will be supplied electricity. Our retail partner Energy Locals will supply any shortfall electricity at their standard rate so you can be guaranteed you will be supplied electricity 24 hours a day.
Oxamii is an Australian first Energy Marketplace called The People’s Grid where you can buy renewable energy directly from small scale generators in your community.
Our retail energy platform enables consumers both residential and small business to select a preferred renewable energy generator whose values and rate structure provides a win, win for both the environment and the hip pocket. Oxamii is aiming to become the true “People’s Grid” putting the customer back in control when it comes to making sure that the energy you purchase, meets all your moral, ethical and financial requirements.
We have just launched to customers in South Australia. Oxamii plans to roll out The People’s Grid to customers in other states in the near future.
The answer is yes. When more solar farms join The People’s Grid, you will be able to buy your energy from them. In the meantime, you can buy your energy from Mark’s solar farm.
