How solar and energy management worksSolar is a great way to generate your own energy and reduce your electricity bills. Sometimes we may need to carefully manage the energy generated from your system to balance the network and allow more people access to the benefits of solar.
Here's an overview of how a rooftop solar system works and what it means when your system is 'energy managed'.
How rooftop solar works
If you don't use all of the solar power you generate (and you don't have a battery to store it), the excess energy goes back into the grid.
Panels create electricity
An inverter converts the electricity
The electricity powers your property
Excess energy is sent back to the grid
Smart Connect Solar
Smart Connect Solar is our solution to the technical challenges of connecting high volumes of solar energy to the network.
It uses internet connected solar technology that enables us to effectively manage high levels of solar energy on the network, whilst maintaining a safe and reliable power supply for the community.
