Report: Residential Solar and Storage Program Final Report (PDF 7MB)
UE sought as a deliverable for this ARENA-funded project, to undertake a targeted deployment of solar PV and storage at customers’ premises that are connected to constrained (overloaded) distribution substations on the UE distribution network.
United Energy (UE) is an electricity distribution business that supplies electricity to more than 680,000 customers across Melbourne’s eastern suburbs, south eastern suburbs and the Mornington Peninsula via 13,000 kilometres of wires, 215,500 poles, 78 sub transmission lines and 47 zone substations.
The Residential Solar and Storage Program is a project funded by ARENA that has enabled UE to explore and demonstrate the viability of using Solar Storage technology as an alternative way to manage network capacity constraints and defer traditional network augmentation.
