Making solar PV as simple as a refrigerator

Reducing costs and growing sales of solar PV in the residential mass market will require it to become more of an easy plug-and-play household appliance commonly sold in Bunnings and Harvey Norman. Integration of components, greater standardisation and simplicity for end-users are required to enable this to occur.

Open standards, integrated and easy-to-use products have been the foundation of most products that have reached mass consumer adoption. The same can be achieved with small solar PV systems. Multi-vendor support of interchangeable modular products can create a fast-growing, competitive market. This will allow vendors to develop low-cost, easy-to-install products and sell them at big-box retailers.
