The solar industry has had an everlasting impact on the electricity grid and has affected the power suppliers (such as Energex, Ergon, Essential Energy, PowerCor) in a way that could not easily have been anticipated. As a result, many of Australia’s power providers are still changing their regulations, exploring new equipment and safe guarding their network against a massive influx of solar generation.
Over recent months, we have been involved in assisting some of the power suppliers with technical aspects of connecting solar PV to the grid and they have showcased our technical expertise as an example to others in our industry. As new equipment becomes available, we work closely with the power suppliers to assist in their measurement of performance and regulatory satisfaction. We have an excellent working relationship with Energex(QLD) in particular and often liaise with their technical team in order to assist.
