7. $500 Pulse® Saving Guarantee
Pulse® System is guaranteed to find you at least $500 in energy savings within the first 3 years of use. When Pulse® together with the Pulse® analytics platform identifies a saving opportunity, this recommendation will be sent to you.
Some examples of savings include identifying a better energy plan, diagnosing inefficiencies in and better use of your solar system and automating your energy usage. Other saving opportunities may be recommended to you.
Each recommendation sent to you by the Pulse® System will include our scientific estimate of the financial saving which will be made when the recommendation is implemented and this will be based on your current energy data and your projected energy data over a future period appropriate to the type of saving opportunity being recommended. If, in the three (3) year period following installation of your Pulse® (the guarantee period), the total value of all saving opportunities recommended to you does not equal or exceed $500.00, you may return the Pulse® unit to us and we will pay you, in cash, any amount by which your identified savings fall short of $500.00.
The saving estimate will be made by us based on the best available household energy data collected by the Pulse® and other third party databases. Calculation methodologies for the saving estimates are compiled by 369Labs engineers and experienced data scientists and supported by your energy data and third party databases. All saving estimates, algorithms and calculations are developed with solid scientific and data based assumptions. The calculation methodologies, data and assumptions used to determine the saving estimate will be at the discretion of 369Labs.
The value of all saving opportunity recommendations will be added to the total of all saving opportunities as determined by 369Labs using data backed scientific algorithms developed by 369Labs' team of engineers. Implementation of the actions needed to implement the saving opportunity will be at your discretion, except in cases where you have previously given permission for us to implement the recommendation, in which case we may implement such recommendations for you. Your implementation or otherwise of the saving opportunity will not affect the total of all saving opportunities used to determine that the savings guarantee has been met.
Payments made by us to you under the Solar Sentinel protection guarantee will be included in the total of savings found by the Pulse® System.
This Pulse® saving guarantee does not apply to Pulse® installations in the Northern Territory or Western Australia.
This Pulse® saving guarantee will not apply if you do not enter into Pulse® details of your energy plan tariffs, including any controlled load tariff, or if you don’t keep those details up to date. The Pulse® energy savings guarantee is only available for households who do not have a battery installed as part of their home energy system. During the 3 year period, should a battery be installed the $500 guarantee will no longer apply.
In order for Pulse® to work for you, Pulse® needs to be powered on, and connected to Wi-Fi with an internet connection. This Pulse® saving guarantee will not apply if these conditions were not met for a significant portion of the guarantee period.
This Pulse® saving guarantee will not apply if, at any time during the guarantee period, you have the benefit of an energy plan which is not available to the general public, for example a staff discount provided by an energy retailer.
This Pulse® saving guarantee applies only to the original purchaser and the first installation of Pulse®. The guarantee will cease to apply if Pulse® is installed in premises other than the original installation premises. A claim under this Pulse® saving guarantee can be made by contacting us within three months of the end of the three year guarantee period. A claim will require the return of your functioning, undamaged Pulse® hardware to us.
8. Solar Sentinel Protection Guarantee
Pulse® monitors your solar system’s health constantly. If you do have a system outage, Pulse® is guaranteed to notify you. If we don’t, we'll pay your lost solar earnings. We call this our Solar Sentinel protection guarantee.
We guarantee to notify you if your solar system suffers a failure causing a total outage of the solar generation monitored by Pulse® at your premises for one calendar day. If we fail to notify you of such a total solar system outage within 4 hours, we will compensate you for your lost solar generation value. The period for which we will compensate you for lost solar generation value is defined as the period between the outage being detectable (that is, once the solar system has been failed for all the daylight hours of one day) and the time of your subsequent Pulse® outage notification or your discovery of the outage by other means, whichever is earlier. Outages detected by other means must be validated by 369Labs for the Solar Sentinel protection guarantee to apply
The compensation will be calculated by multiplying together:
• your solar system’s average daily kWh export*, multiplied by your feed in tariff
• your average daily kWh self-consumption of your solar system's generation*, multiplied by your consumption tariff
• your undetected outage days
(* calculated over the most recent continuous 7 day period for which Pulse® has recorded data)
We will send all notifications via email to the email address which you provide to us via the Pulse® portal, powered by the Pulse® analytics platform. Notification of the outage will be considered to be given when we send the email.
To be eligible for the guarantee, your Pulse® must have been connected to your solar system by a party authorised by 369 Labs Pty Ltd. Your Pulse® must have been powered on and connected to Wi-Fi with an internet connection for the entire duration of the outage, and the preceding 48 hours. The guarantee does not apply to any lost solar generation value caused by a failure of, or fault in, the grid supply to your property. This guarantee relates only to solar panel system generation value and excludes solar storage (battery) components. This guarantee is limited to $250 per customer, per year.
9. Best Energy Plan
Pulse® and Pulse® analytics constantly assess the electricity usage of your home against electricity plans available.
10. Smart Home Control
Smart home control functionality may require additional equipment. Pulse® is compatible with a range of ZigBee and Wi-Fi enabled devices. This equipment is available for purchase at www.emberpulse.com
11. Limitations of the Pulse® System
369Labs does not guarantee or promise any specific level of energy savings or other monetary benefit from the use of the Pulse® System beyond those guarantees included in these Terms and Conditions. Actual energy savings and monetary benefits vary with factors beyond 369Labs' control or knowledge, and you agree not to seek monetary or any other remedies, beyond those included in these Terms and Conditions, from 369Labs, if your savings differ.
