In March 2021, the Age newspaper reported that thousands of Victorian homeowners are being told they won’t be able to feed their excess solar electricity into their network. The rising popularity of rooftop solar installations means there is simply too much power available in the suburbs; it’s difficult for the distributors to control and causing havoc with the networks. Fortunately, there is a solution that allows businesses with larger-scale rooftop solar installations to continue to safely and profitably export excess power to the grid – eleXsys® from Planet Ark Power.
Australia is the world leader in residential solar adoption. Commercial businesses and other large organisations are now following suit, enticed by significant savings on their energy bills. eleXsys makes the decision to install solar even easier, with technology solutions to enable businesses to sell large amounts of excess power into the grid. eleXsys keeps the network operators happy by doing all the power management work behind the meter before the energy is exported back to the grid.
Planet Ark Power is the licensee for eleXsys in Australia. Read on to see how businesses and other organisations with large-scale solar solutions are using eleXsys to improve their financial position while leading the way to a sustainable, clean energy future.
We all know that our sunburnt country has significant solar energy resources available. Technological advances are making solar energy capture more efficient and less expensive. Businesses can afford larger solar installations, potentially replacing energy bills with energy credits.
The Clean Energy Council noted in a recent report that “Australia’s electricity system is undergoing the most remarkable transformation”. Indeed, the small-scale solar sector added more than 3 GW of new capacity in 2020 to record its fourth-straight record-breaking year.

Across Australia, rooftop solar adoption has skyrocketed since 2009 and is now continuing on its record-breaking trend line.
