Western Australia utility says too much solar is causing problems


Recommended Posts

My understanding from that article is that most of the domestic systems are grid tied, without battery to store electricity for later use. Which makes sense because they have, at present, a reliable power system, can resell at a reasonable price, thus getting a rebate on their bill, and because those systems are relatively cheap.

What they could also do is invest in grid scale storage, either massive batteries or pumped storage. If they have a situation like now in SA with very low solar production, they will have the opposite problem and may be forced to load shed if they have scaled back on base load generation.
