Angry and Frustrated, More Australian Customers Quit the Grid

One Step Off The Grid

 

It seems that even big users of energy and the owners of residential mansions are choosing to cut their links with the main network, and go off-grid. Installers and energy consultants tell One Step Off The Grid that the numbers of consumers choosing to go off grid is rising quickly, in response to rising cost of grid energy, and the hopeless political environment.

And it’s not just small or energy conscious households making the shift.

Recent data shows that the number of off-grid installations is increasing rapidly, a combination of new homes that don’t bother connecting to the grid, and an increasing number of on-grid homes that have had enough.

The official data, however, may not capture the scale of what is happening now as solar and battery storage options become more attractive. . .
