SA Power Networks works with Enphase to conduct distributed
residential energy storage trials for the Enphase Storage
South Australia’s electricity distribution network, which has high
solar penetration of more than 25 percent, makes it the perfect
testing ground for the Enphase Storage System.
These trials will help companies gain insights into how energy storage
can help utility providers improve their load management and develop
business models for residential battery storage.
