Solar power has emerged as the most rapidly growing renewable source of electricity across the world. Generating electricity from the sun at the location it will be consumed makes sense compared to generating from monolithic hydro dams or power stations and transporting energy up and down the country on poles and wires. That’s an expensive exercise that we all pay for.
In New Zealand, the seeds have been sown to develop a new peer-to-peer (P2P) market where anyone can sell their electricity to their neighbours at a price that they both agree upon with minimal participation from the existing electricity industry. We also need to challenge those who stand in the way of progress with stuff like solar taxes and changes to electricity distribution pricing.
