Australia-first development to have 12 homes that share solar power - each will have electricity bills of precisely zero

Australia is about to be home to the first housing development outside Europe to be built sharing solar power between all 12 homes on a single estate.

The landmark three and four-bedroom houses in Sydney’s Kurnell, which will be completed by mid-September, will all be connected via home power storage batteries and will each have electricity bills of precisely zero.

“This is just the tip of the iceberg. We’re now looking at between 200 and 800 properties that will have this in the future here and, as the largest installer of solar and batteries in the country, we know these numbers will increase very quickly.”

Each of the 12 homes will have a 5kWp solar system and an 8kwh German SonnenBatterie installed. Adoption of the technology means the developer was able to avoid paying a $250,000 fee to upgrade the electricity grid and infrastructure to accommodate the new homes in the area.

I can see how this is going to take off... watch central energy demand start to drop in future.
