We've introduced a new way of connecting rooftop solar to our network, removing hosting capacity limits and allowing more people to access solar sooner. 


Smart Connect Solar

Solar panels convert sunlight into electricity to power your business and any excess energy is sent back to the grid. With energy management, we can turn up or down the solar energy generated when needed to maintain network stability - we call this Smart Connect Solar.

How solar and energy management works

If your rooftop solar is a Smart Connected system, it has a Secure Gateway Device connected to the solar inverter and internet - so it can be energy managed.

Here's an overview of how a rooftop solar system works and what it means when your system is 'energy managed'.
How it works

Buyback for business

If you don't use all of the energy you generate, you could be eligible to sell your excess power back to us.

Buyback rates are reviewed annually. They differ for each town - determined by our cost of electricity generation and distribution. It’s important to check if you are eligible before you apply.

Choose a reputable solar installer

The Clean Energy Council (CEC) solar retailer program is designed to lift the minimum requirements and bring about a better standard of service within the solar industry.

That's why it's important to choose a CEC accredited installer.
