Guest Speaker: Peter Sellens, CSA Services, Solar Council of Australia
With its dry climate and latitude, Australia has the greatest solar energy potential of virtually any country in the world. It is not surprising therefore, that over 1.4 million households have installed PV systems with a total capacity of around 4,100 MW. These systems account for around 1.1% of Australia’s electricity production.
There is much information and misinformation out there about solar systems. Some say they are driving up electricity prices.
Some say the opposite. Some say they are destabilizing the electrical grid. Some say this is nonsense.
Peter will give an outline on solar energy today, what might happen in the future, and is happy to answer questions.
