Federal energy minister Josh Frydenberg admitted this week that he “hasn’t got round” to installing rooftop solar on his home, earning a “shame on you” rebuke from 60 Minutes.
That is a shame, because may be if he did have battery storage, like the PM, then he would have a better understanding of the benefits and cost savings of the technology. It might even inspire him to make sure that all people have access to the technology, including those in rental homes, apartments and low income households.
Meanwhile, an expert panel of Mark Cavanagh and Jack Long join the regular Solar Insiders team of Giles Parkinson and Nigel Morris to discuss the best and worst in monitoring, why it’s important and what to look out for.
Basically, if you are wondering how much solar to install, or whether and how much battery storage you might need, the first port of call is to understand your usage. And monitoring devices will also tell you if the equipment you have installed is working properly. Too many don’t, and people just don’t know.
