Run as a joint project by the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA), Essential Energy, Reposit Power, solar inverter supplier SMA Australia and the University of Technology Sydney, the trial may help us better manage additional solar connections to the local electricity network. If successful, this technology may reduce the need for future network augmentation and, as a result, help Essential Energy maintain downward pressure on electricity prices.

The advanced solar inverter trial is planned to run over a two-year period, and conclude June 2018.
