Podcast: solar intermittency and the electricity grid

Australia has abundant solar energy resources, but there has been very little publicly available research on how the variable nature of sunshine affects electricity networks – until now.

You can listen to CSIRO’s Dr Glenn Platt discuss his team’s recent report and findings in this podcast. There’s also a transcript, if you prefer to read it online.

    This solar thing is getting popular now and i’ve been to a dealer to get one for me but he said it only comes up with amenities attached to it. Like a fan and a couple of tube lights and you can’t use any other electrical device you’ve at home besides those attach to the solar panel. Is that True?
