Two of our founders, CEO Stefan Jarnason and Commercial Director Dr Renate Egan attended the much anticipated Solar Supercharge National Action Summit in Brisbane last month, organised by Australian solar community organisation SolarCitizens. Stefan was among a handful of Australia's top solar champions to present to the audience on "The Grids of the Future: Smart Grids and Micro Grids".

Being able to build accurate pictures of household solar generation and overall energy consumption down to 5-minute blocks gives Solar Analytics some powerful analytical opportunities.

A team of our people have been turning their attention to one of the big questions of our times for the distributed clean energy sector: when will the financial pay-off period for home battery storage reach a market tipping point?

Just how feasible is it for the average household to go off grid – and is it really worth it?

That's the question on the lips of many Australians considering investing in home battery technology.

With rising electricity prices and large upfront connection costs, choosing to go it alone for your electricity is becoming increasingly more attractive.

Before you cut the electricity company umbilical cord, let's take a look at what it really means and figure out if it's a smart move for you.

For years, using batteries to store solar-generated electricity has been a distant dream.  Now it's moved a step closer to being a part of the typical Australian home.

The arrival of affordable solar energy storage is a game changer.

It allows home owners to store electricity in cheaper off-peak periods and then use it during expensive evening periods when grid power costs rise.

Solar energy storage beats this problem.

But as with all new technology, there are often more questions than answers before the product is proven in the marketplace.
