Aussie rules on batteries tightened

Many Renew members already have solar batteries helping to power their home, often installed many years ago as part of an off-grid solar system at a remote property. Many more are watching the battery market, waiting for economics to improve before adding a battery to their grid-connected solar system in the suburbs. Some have installed small DIY solar systems in sheds. All these people are affected by a new Australian Standard published on the 11th of October 2019 which significantly tightens the rules on where, how and by whom batteries can be installed and maintained.
