Household Solar Power and Battery Survey
Ausgrid has an estimated 108,000 solar customers within our network area. In late 2016 we surveyed residential customers to better understand the uptake of household solar and battery systems and reasons why customers are installing the technology.
The information gathered during the survey will assist us to plan for customers' electricity needs as well as helping us to manage a safe, reliable and efficient electricity network for the whole community.
The results were released in March 2017 and below is a snapshot of some of the main things the survey revealed about solar and battery respondents. Percentages listed under motivation for buying indicate reasons listed as extremely or very important by respondents.
