Understanding customer experiences with grid-connected solar photovoltaic systems

Understanding customer experiences with grid-connected solar photovoltaic systems

Alice Springs has one of the highest proportions of households with grid-connected solar PV of any town of comparable size anywhere in Australia, and possibly internationally. Through the Alice Solar Cities (ASC) organisation there is a comprehensive database of household information. While this enables coarse analysis of some of the issues around high level adoption of solar energy at a household scale, more in-depth qualitative social research is needed to better understand, for example: the experience of different types of households with grid-connected solar PV; the impact on net energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions over time; the influence of pricing and other incentives and disincentives; and implications for large-scale rollout of solar PV for households elsewhere.
