Increasing Visibility of Distribution Networks to Maximise PV Penetration Levels

The Solar Enablement Initiative will provide improved visibility and understanding of electricity network performance and avoid undue restrictions being placed on the capacity of new Solar PV installations and their export into the Australian grid, thereby enabling an increase in the percentage of renewable energy connected to the grid.
