Australian Energy Market Operators have recently
made the prediction that within two years every state network in the
country will see less demand for electricity in the middle of the day than at night.
The AEMO’s 10-year forecast of demand and supply carried out in its annual Electricity Statement
of Opportunities notes that since 2012, South Australia has been using minimum electricity during the day.
Tasmania followed the crow-eaters last summer, while Victoria, Queensland, and NSW could do the same in the 12-24 months.
Why Is This Happening?
The report has found that the reduced demand for electricity will happen rapidly, likely in the next 5 years, because of projected high rooftop PV uptake.

- 2. The increasing incentive for storage, both at utility-scale and at the household level,
will skyrocket as people try to use the electricity generated during the middle of the day at night

solution to your daytime energy needs for everyone else as a result.
There are many companies offering commercial solar panel to help businesses meet their requirements
