Update to the response from SunEnergy regarding the ABC's recent report

Solar Needs Tailored Solutions For Consumers

Following the Australian Energy Market Commission (AEMC) handing down its draft determination aimed at integrating more small-scale solar and batteries into the grid, SunEnergy Managing Director Mr Lee Lake advised that “SunEnergy will be submitting a response to the draft determination in due course highlighting the need for tailored solutions as this is not a one size fits all scenario”.

“The South Australian Government is leading the way with the Smarter Homes Regulations, where all customers installing or upgrading solar systems in South Australia are required to appoint a Relevant Agent who will be responsible for disconnecting and reconnecting the system during State electricity security emergencies”.

Mr Lee Lake

The solar landscape is growing rapidly, with Mr Lake adding “there is still a need for the Government to invest in upgrading the existing network. We know our customers are wanting the benefit of solar, the cost savings and utilising solar as an income, but the system needs upgrading and future proofing to keep up with the demand for power in Australia”.


The curtailing of a range of large-scale and residential solar customers reduces solar exporting when low grid demand levels for electricity from the grid. This direction is to help assist AEMO in stabilising the State grid. Infact on Sunday the 14th of March, Energy Authorities in South Australia enacted for the first time, remotely switching off thousands of solar systems for one hour.


The landscape may change a little, but SunEnergy has identified a number of future benchmarks and is proactively working with industry partners to create affordable solar solutions that reduce the impact on the grid whilst giving more control to the homeowner.

“Solar power is here to stay, and SunEnergy's directive will remain the same - Empowering Australians”.

Mr Lee Lake

*The draft is out for public consultation until the 13th of May, with a final determination due to be handed down in June.
